Congrats, Jess! I'm sure you'll do amazing! I really enjoy reading your reports!

The message your dad wrote to you made me cry. What a supportive family you have!

Can't wait to read more! Enjoy every minute of this exciting new adventure!

Congrats to Mark for being friends with Goofy! I wish him good luck! What park will he be working at? Might just have to have a picture taken with "Goofy"! By the way, Goofy is one of my favorites! Glad every thing is going great for you Jess. Good Luck on your first day! I know it will come natural with your personality! Have fun!

You're welcome!

I LOVE the quote from Walt Disney on the Applause-O-Gram:

"You can dream, create, design and build the most wonderful place in the world, but it requires people to make the dream a reality."

That is so true-it is The Cast that Makes The Walt Disney World Resort the phenomenon that it is.

I know Walt would be so proud of Jess and other Cast Members like her for their love of,and dedication to,the Resort that bears his name.

We were going to sit out a year, but there's no way I can pass up that restaurant....okay, back to reading the rest of your updates

Hey Jess! I've been reading your TR since the beginning. I check it everyday and I get so excited about it! It's brought me to tears on more than one occasion. The college program sounds so amazing. I can't wait to hear more. Congratulations on living the dream!

Thanks for the link, so enlightening! But now I wonder...I make it a point to respond to the Disney link emailed to me when I return home. I am very specific about the CM's name, the date and how they made out trip soooooo magical. Does that count the same as a handwritten note? I just want to make sure these amazing CMs are recognized.

Also, I try to cheer up any CMs that seem down. I have only met three actually, that's how rare it is, but I would rather spend a few moments speaking with them and cheering them up than to have them ruin someone else's magic who is there for the first or maybe only time. Sometimes, they just need to know someone cares and it helps to maintain the magic as we are enjoying it.

Anyway, I agree, our Jess definitely deserves our praise for all of the magic she brings us on a daily basis with her DCP updates! Love, love love them! Jess, I can only imagine how you'll be changing lives as a caring and giving CM!

You hair is SO pretty, Jess! I love it.

I really want to try the food in Morocco but my mom thinks everything sounds gross. I will try anything, but my mom is another story…

I have to admit… I have never tried school bread. I know I’m messed up.

I didn’t know Olivia’s had pineapple coconut bread. I LOVE that stuff.

I hope training went well! (:

We all know how MAGICAL Jess' love for the Walt Disney World Resort is,as evidenced by her amazing Trip Reports,so I think it would be awesome if she receives a lot of well-deserved recognition as she provides GREAT service to Guests at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort.

Here is a link to some info on ways Guests can notify Management when they receive GREAT service from a Cast Member.

Thank you for the kind words and for thinking of me! If you do decide to do this, though, I wanted to make sure that you only send in comments about my actual job at the resort. Disboards is not officially affiliated with Disney, so please make sure they are solely cast member related comments.

I just wanted to clarify, but thank you so much again!

Oh! I can see how that would be misleading, I only meant to send compliments regarding your work as a CM. Thanks for the clarification. That could have gotten ugly. Moving on...

Hi Jess! I've happened upon your TR and I just love it. I did CP WAY back in Spring '95 (followed by summer as a seasonal) . Reading your report brought back so many memories of Vista Way and The Vinings (our summer apt) and the friends I made, and wow, things have changed a bit too. Love that they now offer the Advantage for CP, something they didn't in '95 yet so many of us wanted to stick around longer! You will do great, enjoy every moment. Definitely network. The best advice I ever got was to keep WDW on my resume, and it STILL gets attention and opens doors to this day. Can't wait to read more! When you get the chance get out and enjoy Orlando and beyond too, so much to do outside of WDW that tourists usually don't see/do - road trips are a blast!

Wow, 27 characters must be a record!! I remember one of the first trips to Disney World my parents took me on, I met the Sheriff of Nottingham from Robin Hood! He was really good at his role but he terrified me- after he signed my autograph book, he threw my pen down on the ground! I thought he was so scary! haha!

I'm sorry that Rapunzel kind of ruined the magic- what a bummer! I would've been really annoyed too! Sounds like the rest of your character interactions were great though!
