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.

New Years eve eve. December 31, 2010

Today has been a pretty standard day. Work at 1:15, right through until 11pm. I started seating, and moved onto Chippie filling later on. So same as usual. Close was a bit annoying, as we had to over-stock everything due to it being New years eve tomorrow, and we’re expecting 79,000 people in Epcot! Thankfully, I’m not working!!! 😀

(For reference, Magic Kingdom has a full capacity of 100,000. That’s the moment when they stop letting anyone enter, regardless of where they got their ticket/if they’re staying in a resort. The parking lot has a capacity of 75,000, to allow for 25,000 resort guests.)

So yea, I’m going to try and get into Magic Kingdom tomorrow. This could go horribly wrong. I’m going to have to be up and out very very early, as I’ll only be allowed in during general opening, before they start restricting who can and can’t enter. Wish me luck!

I guess I should probably talk about yesterday too, as I didn’t blog. Yesterday, I wasn’t working until mid-afternoon, so Terri, Riyad and I went to Hollywood studios for a spot of lunch. We ate at Backlot Express, which was really rather yummy, and the cast there were lovely. One of the ladies though we were holiday makers! After that, Terri and I had to make our way back to Epcot (by boat! I love the friendship boats), as we both had work.

Work was as usual. I started off greeting, which is always fun, and then I was chippie filling after my break. I really didn’t want to walk back to Odyssey (staff cafeteria) during my break, and I had a change of clothes with me, so I decided it was about time I tried some of our fish and chips. So I can now officially say that I have eaten from the Yorkshire County Fish Hut!!! 😀 They’re not bad, but it’s not cod, so it is a little different from home. It’s a pretty good estimation though.

So yea, that was my last couple of days. I now have two days off, and I plan on spending one of them recouping after 8 straight days of work. Shopping, washing and resting is in order! And then, on Sunday, I’ll get my rota for my Assigner training week. 😀 Exciting times!

For now though, I should sleep. Especially if I want to get up as early as I really should to have any hope of getting into MK.

Night all,
