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.

Can I see your pins please? April 7, 2011

I decided I needed a bit of a lazy start to my day today. So I spent most of my morning and a fair bit of my afternoon at home, chilling out and chatting to Jon on skype. I eventually decided that I really should go out, as Taylor isn’t in the US for very long, so I popped over to Hollywood Studios to meet up with her, her mum and their friends. We did a little pin trading (which is new-ish thing for me – it’s great fun!) before deciding we were hungry and it was dinner time. So we left Hollywood Studios and hopped on a boat to the Swan & Dolphin, where we ended up at Il Mulino New York Trattoria for dinner. It’s a lovely Italian place, and the food was great! For anyone who likes Italian, I recommend heading there.

After dinner, we all headed up to Magic Kingdom (they were staying at the Contemporary) for a bit more park wandering and pin trading. There was a lot of pin trading though! It’s surprising how much you can get in a few short hours… I started and completed one hidden Mickey set, and I’m one pin short of completing a second. I need to somehow aquire a lot more trader pins though, that’s my problem. To eBay!!!

Anyway, now I’m home, and much as I’ve had an amazing day, I start work earlier than I thought I did tomorrow, so I really need to be sleeping now.
