A dream is a wish your heart makes....or something like that.

Howdy new people!

Sorry I haven't been around much lately, issues with the boards + a busy work schedule = no DIS for Conc!

Oh, don't doubt! That would be so exciting! Here's hoping that it comes to North America for me (so that I can see it), and here's hoping that it comes to North America for you (so that you can be it).

Quasi's my favorite

I don't mean to thread-jack, but have you guys listened to the German cast recording? If you can track it down... I can't recommend it enough! Einmal ("Someday") is ridiculously beautiful as a group number (Esmeralda, Phoebus and Chorus).

Here is Einmal (and a playlist, containing the rest of the German cast recording; From 2:49 to 3:30 is just about orgasmic - especially when the music drops out - those voices are *amazing*.

My favorite WDW parks are Epcot and DAK. I love Epcot for the atmosphere (and alcohol), and DAK because I'm a big animal person. I have a dog, 4 cats, a macaw, a conure, an african grey, 2 budgies, and 3 lovebirds

My favorite Disney movie was always TRON, and I was very happy with TRON: Legacy (although the first is still my fave). My favorite character is Maleficent!

Here's a picture of me last Memorial day at the Parliament House when I was there with fmelchor and a bunch of friends. We went to go see Jujubee and Jessica Wild perform, and had a blast!

Hey neighbor!! I love Jujubee and Jessica Wild!! It is soo cool to see someone from the area!!

Hi

Hi everyone!! Okay here is my info.
My name is Pamela but I go by Pam. I am 32 (gosh I feel really old) currently live in Orlando but might be moving to Altamonte Springs to be closer to my boyfriend. My screen name is combination from my favorite real animal and what i love to do plus my age when I started onthe boards.

I work retail at a kitchen store off and on for 12 years, had worked for Universal for a few years it was a blast but sadly can not go back. I am currently at Nova Southeastern University to get my bachelor degree in management and marketing! Hopefully will be walking across the stage next December YEAH!!

I am bi but open with almost anything! I found a guy who loves Disney and he got me to love it again. I am absolutely in love with BEAUTY AND THE BEAST!! Can not wait for the Fantasyland expansion to be completed it is soo cool to go to the park and seeing the changes. We are annual passholders but I am thinking about becoming a member of the Vacation Club.
Favorite park is Magic Kingdom! I love Haunted Mansion, Thundermountain (before meeting Anthony I was totally afraid of rollercoasters but now I love them), and the firework shows 'wishes'.

I also love Tigger, Dopey, Owl from Winnie the pooh. Favorite prince is the Beast. If there is anything you need to know just hit me up! Want to meet new friends. I have lived in Australia, Italy, Nebraska, Maryland, and Florida. Traveled to Hong Kong (my brother lives there), Panama, Costa Rica, and other places in the Caribbean. I have a goal to visit more of Europe, Asia, going to South America, Alaska, and Africa.

GRR my picture will not post!! I have picture in my signature of me and my boyfriend! Sorry about that!

Pam

Hi new people! I don't hang out here much because I am more of an in-person kind of person, but I have enjoyed reading everybody's introductions.

Pandacruise, you sound like me. I am a new resident of Orlando and currently work at Universal Studios. Like you I used to work in a kitchen store off and on. I worked in William-Sonoma in Union Square in San Francisco just about every year during the winter holidays and rotated between that job and another seasonal job as a photographer at the San Francisco Giants games. What happened at Universal Studios so that you can't go back?

SanFranciscan-I had too many late points. I told my leads and manager that I was unable to work a month because I was hoping to get a temp job at a financial firm that could have been permentant. Majority of them were okay with it but one put me on the schedule. I posted my schedule on the shift board and walked around the area (I worked mostly in Kid Zone) to see if anyone wants the shift but no one responded. That day came I had to call out since the temp job was in a little town called Brooksville which is like 2-3 hours away. I finished that temp job (they decided they only needed me to cover for vacation no attentions of making it a perment spot I called Universal to tell them I am back in Orlando but they said I was fired and on a no rehire status.

I tried a few years ago to reapply but no go! I really enjoyed my time there! Oh well live and learn I guess!! I would love to visit San Franciso maybe I will make it there next year! My boyfriend and a few friends want to go to California to visit Disneyland and California adventures and Universal Studios Hollywood.

I know that we are getting a little off topic here, but I would like to put in a word of caution for anyone thinking of going into theme park work. Pandacruise's experience is to be taken with extreme heed.

I have been working as a photographer at the front gate of Universal Studios for seven months now. I have no recollection of signing anything agreeing that I would not work for any other photography or photography-related companies. Nor does a co-worker, but management says that we did. Who knows how management slipped it past us, especially if it was written in legalese since we are not lawyers? I was not informed when hired that I could not work for the theme parks directly since I work for a company under contract with Universal Studios and WDW and Sea World but was told by management this week that Universal Studios was not allowed to hire my co-workers and I because it is in their contract with the company that I have somehow become the property of even though we have no contracted rights offered in return.

I understand why reliability is important in an employee, but it sounds like PandaCruise tried to do the right thing. We theme park workers try to keep up the illusion that customers are guests, but sometimes it is easy to become disillusioned ourselves. If you choose to enter theme park work, make sure you get everything in writing and keep copies. Don't get caught up in the "magic" you are supposed to provide and forget to protect yourself from the mess. Please!

WDW and Disney Dream Dec 12-22

Hi Everyone. I'll be at WDW from Dec 12-18 and on the Disney Dream from Dec 18-22, 2011. I've been an regular visitor to WDW and DL, but this will be my first cruise. I was to be taking this trip with my bf, but we've split since the plans were made. SO! I'm taking a very excited DCM pal of mine on the cruise, who's never been able to enjoy the trip simply as a tourist and he's thrilled! But I will be at the parks most days solo between DEc 12-16, and we'll be doing the VMCP together on Dec 16th. If any one reading this will be at the parks around that time let me know! I love all the rides at all four parks and can go all day without getting tired (lol). Happy Holidays everyone! So excited about the forthcoming trip!

Sorry -- don't know how to post a pic of myself, LOL. 35 yo italian male here.

We'll be on the Dream for the three day sailing right before you. Coming down the 13th. Perhaps we will bump into each other.

My name is Brandon.

My username is because in my house it is Brandon's World...

I'm live just north of Cincinnati, Ohio and have lived here for almost 12 years

I am 34 and have been with my partner for almost 13 years. His name is Greg, he is not as big of a Disney fan as I am.

I currently work as a customer service manager for a direct mail and marketing company and I also work for the Mouse at the Disney Store! I love working there and some day I hope to work for the Mouse full time.

Fave Disney Park is Magic Kingdom

Favorite Disney Movie is The Lion King

And my favorite Disney character is Dumbo

And here is a picture of me taken at the Disneyland Hotel this past August.

Hi,
Just did the Disney Dream cruise and it was awesome!! I didn't really know what to expect since this was my first Disney cruise and right now hands down they are the best cruise line I have done. I took my bf on it and he never sailed before and he loved it. We are looking at planning one for next year since i am graduating from college.

Sorry to hear about the breakup! The last night of the cruise was a heartbreaker for me since my bf almost broke up with me. We are taking a little break but we will see. I hope to get my WDW pass renewed by that time so I might be able to meet up with you if you want just private message me. i want to do some rides again and visit my magical place (I claim the front of the castle as my spot to reflect on things and if I find the one, I want our first kiss to be there) corny right!

Pam
