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.

Just keep swimming… just keep swimming! November 24, 2010

Ahh, Dory, how we love you!

Today, I went to Blizzard Beach water park! I couldn’t have asked for better weather for it, there was brilliant sunshine, and clear skies! After the last couple of days, I was worried it was going to be too chilly for a water park today, but everything was fine. 😀

I had a bit of fun getting there too! I didn’t think the bus from Chatham was going to turn up, so I got a bus to Downtown Disney, with the intention of transferring to a public bus to Blizzard Beach. Somehow, and I partly blame the bus driver for being so nice and trying to help too much, I ended up on a bus to Saratoga Springs! I’m quite glad I did, as it’s so pretty there! There’s so much of Disney that I just don’t get to see, as it’s all the resorts and such! From there, I transferred onto a bus which did indeed take me to Blizzard Beach. I arrived just in time for lunch! 😀

Lunch today was a pesto and turkey baguette with fries, from Lottawatta Lodge. It’s pretty much the only place that does more than just snacks, but it’s pretty yummy. While eating lunch I was pondering how on earth I was going to arrange meeting up with Andrew as he doesn’t have a mobile phone, and I was wanting to put my phone in a locker and start having fun! As it turned out, I had no need to worry! I put my stuff away, started exploring the park, popping back to my locker to check my phone from time to time, and on one trip back, I bumped into Andrew! Not long after he’d arrived either 😀 So all was well.

We went on everything we could! The slides there are so fun, and I will gladly go back again. The tall, steep slide – Summit Plummet – was really fun, and you get *really* wet on it, but it’s not the steepest slide I’ve ever been on. So if you’re a chicken, and think that Slush Gusher (the bumpy, tall slide) will be nicer because it’s slower… you’re wrong. Slush Gusher speeds up, and gets steeper after the last bump! Amazing fun 😀

Anyway, now that I’ve scared people away from Blizzard Beach, it’s time for me to go to sleep! I have 7 days works ahead of me. And they’re not nice shifts either. :S I hate being the newbie. Not for much longer though! The next batch of arrivals turns up in just under 2 weeks. So it’ll be 3 weeks until I start getting nicer shifts. Ah well. It’ll do me good.

Night night everyone! Until next time…
