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.

No ADO for Vikki :( May 7, 2011

Today, I swapped from an AM shift to a PM shift. Only after doing the swap did I realise that I shouldn’t have done so… a bunch of friends of mine from around Orlando were spending the day going around Epcot, and I originally planned to join them after I finished work. As it turned out, I couldn’t do this.

So, my day started off with a lift into Epcot so that I could maingate Nick and Alaina. I got them in, then ran off to the Rose & Crown to ask about an ADO (which the AM manager couldn’t give me – it was up to the PM manager) and to drop my costume into my locker. So, then it was time to meet up with everyone again, which didn’t take very long at all. (Oh, how I love mobile phones!)

So, first stop of the day: Mexico! We had a browse round the stalls while we waited for more of our large group to find us. Eventually, we had everyone we were expecting, some people got a round of tequilas from the Tequila Bar, and we started walking round the world.

There was a quick stop for some people to grab a drink in Canada, and I ran ahead to check in and grab the pager for our table in the Rose & Crown. We had thirteen of us, and got in pretty much dead on our reservation time. Arran was serving us, and I must say that he did a wonderful job of looking after me and my crazy friends. I had a lot of funny looks from the other servers, and questions later about how I knew these people! Either way, lunch was very yummy.

By the time we finished, the PM manager was in, so I asked again about an ADO, so that I could carry on with my friends, but apparently some other people had already called in, and so I had no hope. I worked my PM in the same section that I’d just had lunch in! Section 505! It didn’t go too badly.

And now I’m home, tired, and ready to sleep. I’ve got a full mid shift to work tomorrow.
