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.

I’m a bad girl :( December 11, 2010

I’ve been a very bad girl and not blogged these last couple of days, but they’ve been very fun and busy and tiring days, which is no excuse, but hey – it’s my blog!!!

Wednesday started with an early morning, and a 9:45am bus to Animal Kingdom with Riyad and Terri. We had an amazing day, walking around, seeing all the animals, meeting various characters, going on safari and so on. We grabbed lunch at Restaurantosaurus, which was pretty basic, but nice. We also got to see the Lion King show, which is a must-see for everyone! It’s so much fun, and is an amazing show. It’s a little taste of broadway, with Disney Park magic thrown in. I loved it. We grabbed some funnel cakes after that, which were very yummy, but I can’t eat a whole one.

By this time it was getting quite late, and although AK had extra magic hours, it was chilly. So we headed off to Downtown Disney and the cinema. The plan was to see the new Harry Potter. We arrived just before the next showing, which was perfect, and it wasn’t even busy! It was a really good film, but being a two-parter, it did end a little abruptly. On the way home we had great fun discussing all the Harry Potter books and films and how much they’re going to have to change in the final part because of all the discrepancies in all the preceding films. Unfortunately, the discussion was cut short by the bus getting to the Commons and me having to get off.

Yesterday, Thursday, was another great day, although i started a little later. I relaxed in the morning, then Terri and Riyad came round just before lunch to head off to Hollywood Studios. We grabbed lunch shortly after getting there, at ABC Commissary. Again, pretty simple, but pretty yummy. We went on the Great Movie Ride, the Magic of Disney Animation, and we went to see the Beauty and the Beast live stage show (again, amazing – a must see), amidst general wandering round and shop browsing. We ended our Hollywood Studios day by going to see Fantasmic. Riyad had never seen it before, and was utterly raptured throughout! It was just as amazing as the previous time I’d seen it.

After Fantasmic, we made our way, again, to Downtown Disney. This time, for a final spot of Christmas shopping. I got some Disney Princess ornaments for our Christmas tree!

We suddenly realised it was getting rather late, and we hadn’t had dinner, so we grabbed some from Earl Of Sandwich (very yummy – highly recommended), before heading to Disney’s Boardwalk and Jellyrolls.

Jellyrolls is a piano bar. You request songs (by writing on napkins!) and the guys on the two pianos (yea – I said two!) play them in a really fun, often jazzy, way! It’s certainly a place I will be going back to a lot. I loved it so much. Anyone with any decent taste in music needs to go at least once. It did go on quite late, and we only just caught the last bus back home! But it was worth it. 😀

Today, I was back at work. Chippie filling all day, and it has not stopped! Combination of Extra Magic Hours, and Whoopi Goldberg here for Candlelight made for a very busy park. It was great fun though, the time flew by! Was still a tiring day.

As for now, it’s late. And I do have work again tomorrow, so I shall bid you all adiue. Congrats if you actually manage to read to the end of this post!!! It’s a bit epic, which is my fault for not posting in 3 days. I’ll try not to do it again. *slaps wrist*

So yes, night night!
