Hi Joanna! She is really enjoying the CP so far. I don't know how she's going to survive when she comes home in January. I have a feeling she'll end up back in Disney somehow after she graduates!

I bet she is excited! What kind of role did she apply for? That's interesting she has to have another phone interview. Is she trying for a character performer?

OK, here are some quick Cast intros before we get this thing started:

Me (aka Sarah)...26-year old teacher and Disney fanatic. Some of my Disney favorites include Tinker Bell, Mickey Mouse, Soarin, and the Polynesian.

My sister (aka Emma)...21 year old college student, studying marketing. Her favorite park is Hollywood Studios so she is thrilled to be a CM there for her college program! Sorry, I don't want to give out her exact work location though.

Dad...the DVC owner in our family. One of his favorite things about Disney World is the atmosphere. Also a huge fan of Tigger.

Mom...likes Disney but I don't think she's quite as obsessed as some of the rest of us are. LOL! Some of her Disney favorites are strolling through the countries in World Showcase and the Boardwalk.

My other sister, Claire, didn't come with us, but will be going with my parents in about a month when they go visit Emma again.




Friday, October 28, 2011

Our day started off pretty early. I woke up around 4:00 or a little after for our flight at 7:50. It’s kind of hard getting up when it’s still dark (and a little cold) but like always, it’s also exciting knowing you’re on your way to Disney World. Plus, I couldn’t wait to see Emma in just a few short hours (I’m sure my parents felt the same way). This was the longest we’ve gone without seeing each other. Even though my sisters and I all lived on campus at school we’d see each other often since MU is pretty close to where we live. It’s been sort of strange not being able to see each other but thankfully there’s facebook/texting/blogs to keep in touch. But anyway…did I mention I was looking forward to seeing Emma?

We left the house around 5:00 to head to the airport. After dropping off the car we were able to check our bags and go through security. We made it to our gate with plenty of time to spare. Since I was starving, I went to find some breakfast to hold me over until we arrived in Orlando (and if you’ve read my other TRs you know what our favorite place to get food from is-in fact, I think I’ve even convinced some other DISers to do the same now. Haha!)

One of the things I always love about travel day is hearing other people talk about Disney World. I’m sure it’s the same everywhere, but there are always tons of kids on our flights, and with schools having a long weekend, this trip was no exception. I know there was one mother with her little boy talking about seeing Mickey Mouse and trying to keep him occupied with Disney toys and another lady with her two small girls. I heard her ask one of the girls if she wanted to meet Rapunzel. Knowing that she is so popular I had to offer some advice and told them to plan on getting there early (lucky, she had done her research and said she had heard that). So then Mom asked her where they were staying and it turns out they were also going to Saratoga Springs. It’s just fun hearing/talking to others and adds to the excitement of going to Disney World! Of course with the excitement, there was also a little worry because of the rain they were forecasting for pretty much the whole weekend. We only had two full days so I really did not want it to be raining the whole time, especially after our trip this past March! I was hoping any rain that did happen would be short-lived.

Finally, around 7:30 it was time to start boarding the plane! We were on a Southwest flight so I’m sure many of you know about their odd boarding technique. My parents boarded first since they were in group A and then I went with group B. We were lucky to get three aisle seats near the front of the plane-that way, we’d be some of the first ones off once we arrived in Orlando! On the way down I listened to some theme park music on my ipod to help pass the time. And after an uneventful flight, we touched down at MCO! The runways were pretty wet so it looked like it rained hard early in the morning but thankfully it wasn’t raining anymore. But would that last???

(Sorry for the lack of photos in this update-I never seem to have any from the airport/plane but don't worry, you know they are coming! Stay tuned!)

Up next: Grabbing some lunch and the Magical Express ride!!!

I think she is applying to work at epcot in the canadian pavillion and she wants to do the sales part of it in the sales queue. She said she has to do the other phone interview for some reason and then after that she will meet face to face with someone and then hopefully off to florida

Hey there! I'm new to the posting world around here, but I found your spring TR link on your signature on someone else's TR. (Caretames1, I think!) I read the entire thing and I really enjoyed it! I was a little too late to comment, however, so I decided to follow along with this one! Hope you had a great trip, even though it was short! (My last one was only 2 full days as well!)

P.S. If I'm remembering correctly from your last TR, you ate Chick-Fil-A at MCO... YUM.
