Eeek, I am doing a CP starting in January too! I hope I run into you at some point! I commented on one of your TRs a while ago about the CP and that we might end up there the same semester and we will! I can't wait for the adventure to begin!

Who knows, maybe we will need to call on your services whilst we're there in February.

I hope you have a wonderful time.
Thank you so much!
Aww you are so sweet! I really feel like now I will be able to take my trip reporting to the next level and help people in person while I'm actually IN Disney World. I am unbelievably excited! I'm so glad that my trip reports have helped you all. Thank you so much for your support! And haha I would love to be of assistance! Once I know what resort I'm at, I'll let you know! Maybe you can come visit!
Thank you - I'm sure I will!

Looking forward to your October trip report too!
Thank you so much!
Yes, I'm hoping to continually update my tumblr with DCP updates. http://princessjess508.tumblr.com/
Thank you so much! I am looking forward to writing it!!

Looking forward to your October report.

Aww thank you! You are so sweet! I can't wait either... it's going to be absolutely unbelievable! It really will - I can't wait to see everything that happens! Helping other people in person in Disney is pretty much going to make my life. Thanks - I am looking forward to writing it!

This is such an amazing opportunity and it's wonderful that your dream has come true! You're going to do a wonderful job and I can't wait to read all about it! I will be there in May, maybe we will see each other :

I'm sad the report is almost over but I have to say this has been one amazing trip report! Some much fun, beautiful photos and awesome Disney facts! Thank you for letting us all in on it! :
Thank you so much!
It really is - I can't believe it! I am so unbelievably thrilled that I have the chance to perform this role in WDW! I am ready to put my entire heart and soul into it! Thank you so much! Yes, maybe we will! I'll be there!

I am too... but thank you so much! I'm glad you all enjoyed it - I put a lot of time into it and I think it paid off! You're so welcome!

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!
Aww thank you again! I am so excited!

I know, right!? Disney thinks of everything!

Last nights are sad... but I had SO much fun! It was a great way to wrap up! The October trip was wonderful... I can't wait to tell all about it!

Aww thank you! Usually you find out when you get there... but about 2 or 3 weeks before I move down there, the current cast members can look up where the CP's are being placed. So my friend Miranda is going to look up where I'm working once the information is put up! I can't wait to see! I hope I get either a MK or Epcot resort! It really is - thank you so much!

I also found out yesterday that I got to the final interview for the Summer International College Program!!! :D I'm going to Disney headquarters in London on the 26th Ocotber to have an interview with Disney representatives Im so excited!!!!
Thank you so much!

AHH SERIOUSLY!? Please let me know if you get accepted (which I'm SURE you will!) If we are both down there at the same time we definitely need to have a little dis meet! Good luck with your interview! Just be yourself and express your passion for Disney! I'm sure you'll do great!

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.
Thanks Lia! And OF COURSE you may live in the Poly with Hula Timon. Hahaha it's so funny... when I got my acceptance, I called my Dad and he was like "alright so then the next step is to figure out how we can get you to be the CEO of the company." You both crack me up.

RIGHT THOUGH!? But I'm assuming it's way cheaper.. so that's the only reason why I would even consider eating there.

I loved meeting Joni! It was so wonderful! And seriously though, I completely agree! Now I am a WDW Travel Guide myself.. thanks to all of the fantastic information I have learned from others!

YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY!!!!

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?
Haha yeah, very interesting right!? I am hoping I get to go see the Utilidors at some point while I'm on my DCP. I want to see what else is down there!

Thank you!

She is so wonderful! Meeting Joni was such a highlight of the trip! Hahaha oh I know, girl! I mean, I have a lot of Disney obsessed friends in real life too, but the internet opens up a whole new community! It's so cool!

Thank you so much! I would love to have the chance to meet you! Just keep me updated and we will make it happen!

I don't know exactly how I am going to report back on my DCP. I know it's going to be busy so I am going to have to figure out the most efficient way to do everything. I am currently thinking that I will keep my tumblr updated... and then I'll figure out something from there!

Thank you so much! I have heard that... which makes me even MORE unbelievably excited about the role!

Are you really? What role did you get!? And oh girl, I know. I can't wait to get going!!

Congrats for such a great offer and getting to live at WDW!! So can't wait to hear how it is to live out our dream. I bet it's the most amazing experience to live. Makes me wish I was a young lady and had this kind of experience too.

Congratulations again. I tried to get in the CP. I forgot I had a 15 yr old daughter in all the excitement. So when they called for my phone interview I had to tell them I couldn't do the CP. I was so sad that day lol. I am going to work there one day I swear. Like I said on twitter, we are going in February so we will have to have a Dismeet

I don't have a lot of time today... I know that I don't post a lot in your TRs, but I do read and follow along... I just wanted to tell you how proud I am of you and how excited I am for you!!! How AMAZING!!!

I wish I could meet up with you while you are a CM, but unfortunately, we are not going until October, so you will be gone by then.

I sure hope you decide to do a blog of your experiences, and again - I am so very happy for you!!!

Congrats again! The frumps will have more of an excuse than ever to get together at WDW.

The info about the Magic Kingdom is so cool. I thought it was hilarious that there's a Subway down below!

I'm doing attractions and arriving January 22nd! I'm only Spring (for right now, I might extend once I'm there!) I'm not sure about Spring Advantage but the only dates in January left when I chose mine about a week ago were the 21st, 22nd, 28th, and 29th. For some reason Concierge and Attractions can only choose certain dates for arrival but I think all of those worked. I noticed that if you chose the 21st, you left a week earlier than the 22nd...so I'll take the extra week please and thank you! Plus it worked out perfectly with January room discounts for staying the night before check in. So that's in 100 days from today, eek! Luckily I have a December WDW trip to tide me over. I'm planning to write a TR for that to handle the excitement in between the trip and checkin haha. I just can't wait to hear where I'll be working! I know it will be a lot of fun, even if it's something super frumpy like Universe of Energy haha.

Again, Congratulations Jess! You definitely deserved it. I wish I was going back down in the coming year, but I know for a fact my next trip back won't be until 2014. It also would've given me a reason to visit the Grand Floridian (besides just looking around). I'm hoping I get as much luck as you did with getting into the program on your first try. (:

Wow, those are a lot of facts Ryan told you about the park. I feel I need to copy these down to bother my family with next time we're in there. Maybe give them a new appreciation for the place like me. That would be fantastic! And that's awesome he's trying to get a Professional Internship at Disney. He seems like he knows Disney pretty well so I wish him good luck with that!

Awwww, that's so awesome you and Joni got to meet up and are meeting up again in March! So jealous, SOOOOO wish I could've been going back this year. I really would love to meet a fellow DISer so I can actually talk about Disney until the sun goes down without being told to shut up. Glad to hear your last night was a great one even if it was the last one!

Can't wait to read more!

That's alright! Perhaps we will run into each other in the future! I'm hoping to stay with the company seasonally afterwords and eventually building up my career there!
I'm hoping to keep my tumblr updated... so follow along with that for updates! http://princessjess508.tumblr.com/

That's awesome! Yeah, my friend Mark is moving in on the 22nd for that same reason! I am going to accept my offer at the beginning of next week... once I FINALLY get it cleared by my advisor. Ugh that has been a process.
Ahh I hope you have a wonderful time on your trip and maybe we will run into eachother on the DCP! I hope you get placed at a great attraction!

Thank you! Oh I'm actually not working at the Grand Floridian. (as far as I know.) I was just there when I found out I got accepted. I don't find out where I am working until I actually get there or a few weeks before!

I'm glad you enjoyed the facts! I hope he gets the internship too!

Yeah it was so excited to meet her! Thank you!
