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.

First proper day of work! November 11, 2010

So, I didn’t post yesterday, but it was a nice and quiet day off. I spent the morning relaxing and catching up with friends, then spent the afternoon and evening in Animal Kingdom (awesome! I can see myself spending a lot of time there) and Epcot. Also got to meet Jen’s Norwegian flat mates, who’re really nice. We had dinner at the ESPN Club on the Boardwalk. I’m hoping I get to hang out with them some more.

Anyway, today was rather different, in that I actually started work!!! I was on chippy, with Mallory training me, so I was on the till. The POS (Point of Sales) was so different to the one I’m used to back home, but it won’t take me long to get used to it, I’m sure. The only big difference is hitting the Cash button after entering the amount of cash, and not the enter button. Mallory was lovely, but working in a quick-service environment is very different too. It might take me a while to get used to chatting with customers while on QS. I tried a little bit today, but it felt a bit strange at times. I guess it’ll be different when I’m filling the orders, as I can chat a lot easier when doing that. We shall see!!!

Either way, I really enjoyed it, and I look forward to going back again tomorrow. I don’t think I’ll have Mallory training me again, which is a shame, as she’s lovely. All depends who’s on which role really. *shrug*

Anyway, there’s more flat mates actually here in my flat right now than I’ve seen at any point since I’ve been here! So it’s probably about time I actually got to know them a little better 😛

    I’m so glad you liked Animal Kingdom!!! I worked there for a couple of years and it was literally the best job I’ve ever had. I’d still be there if I could have afforded to stay.
