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.

Whoppi Goldberg! :D December 11, 2010

Today has been a pretty good day!

I got up early, headed to work, ended up chippie filling for the afternoon, so the time went quite quickly, then went on my break. After my break I took over greeter, which was wonderfully simple today as we were fully booked, and weren’t taking any walk-ins. I got relieved from this position half an hour before I finished, so I was tasking for the final bit of my shift – interacting with guests on the promenade! 😀 Yes, this is what CDS (Cast Deployment System) told me to do. So I did it! Until I finished, that is. At which point I ran upstairs and got changed.

Finishing at 7:30 meant I had time to get to the American Pavillion in time to see the last showing of Candlelight at 8:15. Yesterday and Today, the narration for Candlelight was being read by Whoppi Goldberg, so I am eternally grateful to whoever rota-d me to finish at 7:30 tonight! Candlelight was really really good, the mix of songs was rather different than any carol concert I’ve been to/in before, and Whoppi has the most distinctive voice around. A Lovely, but distinctive voice. You’d never mistake her for someone else! It was quite funny though, she boogies along to the carols! She is everything I thought she would be!

After Candlelight I was rather hungry, so I grabbed some food from China, at the Lotus Blossom cafe. You know a chinese eatery is good when Chinese people are eating there! And it was indeed good – I had the beef and noodle soup and loved it! I’m still full from it now, which is always a plus.

Then it was time for home, and upon getting home I had a letter from England! This is where I have to say a HUGE thank you to Jon’s parents for not only my first Christmas Card of the year, but also two really lovely pairs of earrings. 😀 You’re too nice for you’re own good!

Tomorrow, I don’t start until 3:15, but being a Sunday, I’m not sure what I’ll get up to. I do know that I need to at least pop to Publix to buy some odds and sods, but otherwise, it is a mystery!

For now though, I bid you all well. 😀
