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.

Happy Thanksgiving! November 25, 2010

Today, I am thankful for many things, one of which is that I got this opportunity to live and work in Florida! I won’t bore you with the other things, but lets just say my life is pretty good right now, and I’m thankful for it all. 😀

Work today was pretty steady. I started off in Chippy, as a filler. I had to open chippy too, which I wasn’t expecting and was rather miffed about, but I managed to open it much quicker than I thought I would, so that’s all good. Then, after my break I moved over to podium as a greeter. It was all going pretty well, and everyone was pretty happy, until we had a bit of a backlog between 6:30 and 7:15. I had reservations from 6:30 complaining at me that they weren’t sat by 7, and I had to point out that a reservation is a guide time, and it only guarantees you a table, nothing more! Of course, people don’t like this, but we got them all sat eventually, and everything was good.

Then I suddenly realised it was 7:40 and I was meant to finish at 7:30!! A quick radio to Mr B, and it’s all sorted and I’m all done by 8pm. So I decided I would have a bit of a wander in the park, and grab some dinner somewhere.

I ended up in Japan. Mostly, I ended up there because I wanted to say hi to Nanako and Kana, but I also really fancied the Japanese food! I got to chat to Nanako, but Kana had finished at 5, so I didn’t see her. 🙁 Anyway, I ate at Teppan Edo, and it was amazing. You’re sat at a table with other diners and a large grill, and the chef cooks right in front of you! It was great fun, and the food was delicious too! I’d certainly recommend going there, just for the experience!

As for now, I’m going to be heading to bed shortly. I have a very long shift tomorrow, which will be interesting, so for now, I bid you oyasumi nasai, or japanese for goodnight.
