My Disney Journey

This blog was a journey of my application to Walt Disney World's Cultural Representative Program, from sorting out my CV through all the interviews to a year of having a mouse for a boss! Now, watch as I try to get back to my second home.

The end is in sight October 9, 2011

So, I may not have been great at blogging for the later half of my program, but I’ve been having an amazing time, all the same.

Since my last post, I’ve done a whole bunch of stuff. I spent a day in Epcot, going around the world, I celebrated my birthday with a night at Jellyrolls, I took a trip to the opposite side of the county, Seattle, for a Lego convention, and plenty in between.

Seattle is a gorgeous city, and I would love to go back. I made some amazing new friends there, and saw some awesome Lego creations. It’s a very artistic city, with plenty to see and do, even if the weather is a touch dodgy! (It’s apparently the 5th cloudiest city in America!) I’m glad I set aside a little time to see some of the city as well as the convention.

Work has been finally getting busier again, with the Food & Wine festival going on. We’ve also had a few people leave from service, and not many people seem to be coming in to service at the moment. This means that everyone is working more than usual, and getting a little cranky. A few people have come down with colds too, myself included. Personally, I think mine is a west-coast bug, but since October hit it’s gotten colder here, which could have a lot to do with it. Not cold by UK standards, but cold for October in Florida.

Talking of cold, I’m trying to prepare myself for going home. My program finishes in just a couple of weeks, although I have requested to work the last four weeks of my visa. Management are all for it, i’m just waiting to hear back from housing to see if there’s an available bed for me. This means I can’t book my flight home, which is rather awkward, but there’s not much I can do about that.

As for anything else, I’m still plowing on with my dining challenge. I don’t think I’ll complete it, but I might at least be able to do the parks and downtown. I’ve just come back from an awesome meal at Wolfgang Puck’s Cafe, which had a lovely atmosphere as well as great food. One tick at a time, eh!!?!!

For now though, I’ll say good night. Hopefully I’ll blog again before I’m back in the UK, but I’m not making any promises!
