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.

What really makes the magic… November 29, 2010

Last couple of days have been pretty simple. Rest in the morning, maybe sort some household bits out like shopping or washing, head to work mid-afternoon. Work has been strangely quiet. Started on Chippie filler both yesterday and today, and moved over to seater/greeter later on. Closed Chippie down at the end of the night. Simple as!

Had some funny characters around though. A group of 5 twenty to thirty-somethings, without a reservation, rather drunk, trying to get a table for lunch… eventually we managed to get them in. Then they came back and tried for another table for dinner! There was the cute 50-something couple who’d just got engaged. She has a gorgeous ring, and he just looked so happy. There was the cute couple who begged me for a decent firework viewing seat that I managed to take them to… it made them so happy. Then, at the end of the night, while manning the rope to our VIP firework viewing (for our guests with inside tables), the funny couple who’d just finished drinking around the world! They seemed relatively with it until the fireworks actually started, and she turned into an exciteable 5 year old!!! 😀 They also kept double checking where we were, to make sure they hadn’t missed a country out. It amused me.

So yea – the work may be simple, and mundane, but the guests make the job enjoyable. I guess that’s the magic of Disney, for it’s cast as well as it’s guests! Yay!
