Here are just a few things that have been going on:
*A few weeks ago I went on a trip with my mom and sister to L.A. to go wedding dress shopping! I tried on 4 Kirstie Kelly for Disney Fairytale Weddings gowns and they were so beautiful! I would love to show pictures, but I wouldn't want Mike to see :-)
*While we were in California, we visited my Grammie in San Diego and we also went to DISNEYLAND!!! I was so excited to see World of Color but unfortunately wasn't able to go :-( Unfortunately our flight left extremely early the next morning so we had to leave before watching World of Color (and before going to ElecTRONica)
*Final few days of school. I cannot wait for the end of this semester because Mike and I are going back to Walt Disney World for a week!
*I have been applying for jobs like CRAZY! I have been applying for at least one position every week. Pretty much any position that I qualify for- Industrial Engineering or not
*Mike and I have been searching for a location for our RI wedding reception and we are in love with Easton's Beach Rotunda in Newport
I think that's enough for now!
Have a magical day!

Mike and I have decided to get married in Florida and have a Disney Fairytale Wedding! We will be getting married in the Wedding Pavillion and are SO excited!
We will be moving to Florida after we graduate in May!
Anyone who is in the process of applying, interviewing, or auditioning for the College Program or Professional Internships, please let me know if I can help! I would love to answer any questions or give any advice :-)

We stayed at All-Star Music Resort, Coronado Springs Resort, and the Beach Club Resort in my last week alone! We didn't want to leave, but we did. We took 2 days to drive home and arrived on the 16th. It took about 21 hours or so to drive from Orlando to Rhode Island. No tickets this time!
I will be back in Florida in January to work a seasonal shift or two and I will be living in Florida once again beginning in May.
If you are reading this blog because you are interested in the College Program or Professional Internships, please let me know if you have any questions! I am happy to help.
I just received my first Campus Rep email and I look forward to spreading the word about Disney Internships to everyone on my campus!

So, all of those were from the Magic Kingdom Concert in the Sky 4th of July Fireworks. I went to see those on the 3rd (highly recommended as the 4th was much much busier and they show the exact same fireworks on the 3rd). Then on the 4th, we went to the Epcot Resort Area. We walked over to the Boardwalk and stopped along the Hollywood Studios walkway and saw the Hollywood Studios fireworks from there. We then walked back toward the Swan and Dolphin and watched the special 4th of July Illuminations. It was great!

P.S. I can't believe it is 4th of July weekend! Where has the time gone?!?!

The only thing I must speak about is the people that run this place for Disney interns. It is some made up company called Temporary Housing Solutions. It is basically these two blonds that try to tell everyone what to do. Maybe Disney has taken over me a little bit, but they do NOT dress Disney Look lol. I mean, I don't mind if you still look professional but when you address a group of educated people wearing flip flops and a tank top mini dress with your bra straps hanging out, they are going to find it a little difficult to respect you and take you seriously. Anyway they are not as strict as Price Management but they are annoying in other ways.
I'm not try to deter anyone from using Disney Housing but... if you have other options... it is something to consider. I love my roommates they are all great. Engineers like myself.
Anyway, feel free to ask any questions you have about PIs, College Program, anything! I'm here for you all!

So, I got a text from my roommate today saying "We have to move". I was just thinking, oh man this stinks. I'm going to fight this, we shouldn't have to move unless our apartment is below 50% occupancy. Then she said that they are moving all PIs to Cumberland Park, which isn't even Disney housing! And- get this- it is not going to be run by Price Management!!!! Yay!
Haha. So, despite the fact that I am mad that I am going to have to move all of my crap that I just finished unpacking to a completely new place, I am excited.
I may actually be able to have guests past 1am! I don't think I am going to have to sign anyone in to pay me a visit! I might be treated like an adult! Unbelievable.
So, this new place sounds MUCH nicer and I get cleaning service every other week! More details to come!
But! My family is going to visit me!!! Yay!
Talk to you soon

One exciting piece is that today was the last shuttle launch of the ATLANTIS. We drove over to Cape Canaveral and went as far as we could. The closest we could get without special tickets was Titusville and it was a great view. Watching a shuttle launch is AMAZING. It is unbelievable to think that there were actual astronauts in there and they are now in space! So today was fun!
Tomorrow, Mike and I are attending the d23 event "Flowers and Fireworks" so that is exciting. Talk to you soon!

Only one 5-7 page paper about women's studies stands in between me and my summer! I am so happy that school is almost over! Tomorrow, however, is my last day at Soarin'. It will be a sad one but I am so glad to have had Soarin' as my first experience in my Disney Career. It is beautiful out today here in Florida: warm but not extremely hot or humid as it was all last week. A lot of CPs are starting to leave for good. It's sad. Talk to you all soon!

I also just received the results from Goofy's Mystery Tour!
Team #134 Trivia Score: 130 Clue Score: 530 Total Score: 660 Ranking:175
175 Out of 250 on the first try isn't bad!
I also move into Patterson on Saturday, so that is also exciting. Hopefully my new roommates are nice!
Talk to you soon!

I just got off the phone with a recruiter for the Campus Rep position and I think my phone interview went well! I was asked the basic questions (why do you think you would make a great campus rep, etc.) Hopefully Mike will get a phone call about it soon because I would love to be the campus rep team at URI with him. Apparently there are no current Campus Reps at URI right now so I would be the first! I should hear by the end of the week or the beginning of next week either way.
Tonight is Spring Formal! I'm really excited to be wearing my prom dress for the 3rd time! (and they say you pay all that money to only wear it once)

Sorry I keep going so long between posts, everything is pretty much same old same old. I have less than 3 weeks left at Soarin'... Oh! Next Friday is Goofy's Musical Mystery Tour and I can't wait! Hopefully my team does well, I have heard the trivia is really hard... Mike's family comes to visit this Friday (the same day as graduation :-( )
Anyone who is reading this and will be doing the program soon (or not) feel free to ask any questions! I would love to help anyone who was in my shoes a few months ago.

P.S. Yesterday was the last day for Ariel's Grotto and I got to see her in her mermaid form for the first and last time.

I will be staying here in Florida for the Industrial Engineering Professional Internship! Unbelievable!
I received a voicemail a couple days ago saying that there is one last part of the application process that I need to complete so I called back and the offered me the position! I can't believe it! They offered me summer 2010 and spring 2011!!!
I will be moving to Patterson on May 13 and staying through August 13th! The only bad part is that Mike is going home on June 4th :-( But two months without him isn't so bad...
I still can't believe this opportunity of a lifetime. It all seems so meant to be: I didn't pass entertainment auditions so I wouldn't have a decision to make. One issue that I may have is coming back in the Spring because it is technically my last semester at URI before going to Germany for a year.
Sunday, March 21, 2010
I will tell you all about it soon, and hopefully will have some pics!
Thursday, March 11, 2010
I can't believe this, my dreams may come true :-)
The only bad thing is that I won't know for another 2-3 weeks.
I'm so happy!
P.S. I can't believe I have 29 followers! You guys are the best!

So, the day before yesterday I had my second engineering class and we had three people from Disney make a presentation. One of them got her start as an Industrial Engineer so I decided to stay after class and speak with her about the Co-op program that she participated in. It sounds great! Basically, you go to Disney for a summer, go back to school, then come back the next summer for a few years! How great is that?? And on top of that, they hire 80% of their full-timers from this program!!!!!!
So, I gave her my resume and sent her a follow up email, and the very next day I got a phone call to schedule an interview!!!
So, I just got off the phone and my interview is tomorrow at 10:30am!
I can't believe this!!!
I will let you know how it goes!

I picked up a shift from 4am to 11am but got an ER at 10am so that was nice. I then went to work at Soarin' at 3:45pm to 9:45pm. What a looooooong day. It worked out though because that means 4 hours of OT for me :-) If only all places gave OT for shifts over 8 hours, I'd be rich! :-P
I have a midterm paper to write for Women's Studies and a quiz to take for computer science so that's all for now!
See you real soon!
PS I have my second Engineering class today and it was great! We learned about the Fantasyland expansion in MK and I networked with another person in Industrial Engineering!

Yesterday, my manager was walking around Soarin' checking things out and he noticed what a great job we were doing, so we all got Service Fanatic cards! I'm SO excited to get my first piece of recognition here at Disney. It only took a month :-D
The last thing I will mention is that the extension audition for people currently in the college program who would like to extend into entertainment positions is Wednesday! I had to trade some shifts to get it off, but I have it off and I am ready to go! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE the opportunity to get into entertainment with the Walt Disney Company. We shall see!
P.S. Alice in Wonderland premieres Thursday night at midnight, and we are all going to see it in IMAX 3D!!!! Yay! Can't wait :-D

So, this morning Mike, Rob, Karl, Grant, Sarah, and Liza all went to Typhoon Lagoon! (We had to go some time between now and Feb 27 or we'd have to pay) Today was the best day to go because the high was about 73 degrees. Unfortunately, when we got there it was only about 65 degrees (which is a little chilly, even for a Rhode Islander). But, there were no lines, we got right on everything really fast, and the water was HEATED! It was such a great time. We went on every attraction in the park! And we were done by about 2:30pm so we had time to go to another park. Since I hadn't been to DHS yet, that's where we went! We got some great pictures with some characters and we learned how to draw Donald Duck!
All-in-all, it was a great day.

Still having a great time! Have a magical day, everyone :-)
