YAYAYAYAY!!!! Eeeeee!!!!! Woot!!!!
Thank you so much! I am absolutely thrilled! They call it "advantage" now, if you stay a semester plus a summer. I don't know what advanced referred to. What job did you work, again? I feel like I asked you that before. That's awesome that you had such a wonderful experience! I think it definitely will be incredible! I am so excited! Thank you so much!

Alright everyone, I have a very big announcement to make!

Although most of you already know this.....


(Advantage means I stay through the summer! So I'll be there from January through August!)

And what role did I get??


That was one of my top two, so that means...


Continued in Next Post

With the passion you have for all things Disney it would have been criminal if you didn't get in. And in Concierge too - you'll be perfect. Your trip reports have been so educational (and enjoyable of course ) to those of us who can't go so often, and with those resources to be available to guests at Disney, I can't think that anyone would be more suited. Who knows, maybe we will need to call on your services whilst we're there in February.

I hope you have a wonderful time.

Are you going to start a blog so we can all read about your college program experience? It's like one big trip report.
Looking forward to your October trip report too!

It's too bad that this trip report is almost over.

Jess -
I am so VERY excited for you. If anyone deserves to work at Disney it would be you. Your passion and enthusiasm is apparent. I can't wait to hear all the new memories and stories that will happen next year. 2013 will be a great year for you. How awesome would it be to make magical moments happen for other guests now? Looking forward to your October report.


With a little bit of PixieDust anything is possible . . .

First of all, even though I already said it on Twitter, CONGRATULATIONS!! You are going to have an amazing time, I just know it!

That park map thing is brilliant! I mean, who else would think of something so awesome as to coat the maps with a plastic that helps you remove gum? Only Disney!

Last nights are so sad! But I can't wait to read about how your October trip went!

Ahhhhh this is just the greatest thing. Ever. We have already talked about it so much so I will just move onto your update but basically I just have to ask, when you are CEO of Disney World, can I live at the Poly? Hula Timon too? We thank you in advance.

There is a SUBWAY under the Magic Kingdom???? LOL. Oh my God. Why would you eat at Subway when there are so many delicious things at the MK to eat? Really now.

YAY, you got to meet up with Joni! I swear it's so true... I was lost before the DIS. I mean, I knew tons about WDW from my trips and books, but I didn't know that much about the resorts or the restaurants and I had NO Disney World obsessed friends!

AHH your food of the day. I can't believe I will be eating Le Cellier food in 8 days!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME.

That's sounds like a pretty amazing last night!! So many tidbits of information about Disney! I'm glad to know there's a subway down there haha, I knew there was a "mousketeria" but wasn't sure how much healthy stuff there'd be, and subway counts as healthy, right? Lawl.

I love that cinderella jumper! Super cute!!

Joni seems awesome! I know I've read (at least some) of her TR, glad you guys got to finally meet, disboards are great for that, so is tumblr. I'm definitely one of those people who sometimes likes my internet friends better bahaha!

Again, congrats on the DCP! I'm super excited for ya, and I'll definitely be seeing you in Jan, and maybe Feb/March! Who knows, maybe I'll hear good things and end up being there for a year too!!

Will you do a TR for your time down there/the highlights of it?

Whoooooo, congratulations! Concierge is supposedly a really difficult role to get too, which makes it doubly exciting!

I'm doing Spring Advantage too, and I'm so utterly excited. It's making it hard to focus on classes!
