    “You can dream, create, design and build the most wonderful place in the world… but It requires people to make the dream a reality”Walt Disney

    I am one of those people!!!

    Well, at least that’s what they told me upon my arrival here in Florida. Let’s start with a basic introduction shall we?

    For those of you who haven’t read one of my several TR yet, my name is Alicia

    [​IMG]

    I am 23 years old and a recent college graduate with my Bachelors in Fine Arts (I was a theatre performance major with a costuming/design tech minor). I can be best described in a few words: Disney Addict, free spirited, and child at heart. This is the story of my biggest undertaking to date!!! I guess you can say I am taking on the adventure of a lifetime which goes perfect with the new attitude I have adopted since graduating college and is brought to you by a familiar movie Up, that slogan being “Adventure is out there!!!”

    I guess you are probably wondering what this little report here is about huh? Well when I was younger, around the age of five or six I set a goal for myself, which was, become a Disney Cast Member. From the moment I was born I have been devouring, consuming and digesting all things Disney. When I reached college I was set on participating in the Disney College program but for more than one reason I was unable to do so. If you want the truth of the matter I went to college with that specific goal that I had to attain to feel complete. I will admit that when I introduced myself at college and people would ask what I wanted to do with my life and I said “DISNEY!!!” I received more than a few strange glances but I did not let that get me down. Over the years people really got to know me and realize that I had a true love for Disney, a kind that would eventually take me to Florida no matter how hard I had to work to do so. All throughout college I was known as the Disney Girl, I was the go to for any questions anyone ever had about the program and even vacations. Which is why when I applied for the program the last semester of my senior year everyone was ecstatic for me when I was accepted. This is what I have been talking about for literally as long as I can remember!!! And it’s actually happening for me, I am an actual Disney Cast Member. I am literally beside myself at this point I am SO grateful to have been given the opportunity and I can’t wait to get started.

    This is just a way for me to keep tabs and write down memories of all the amazing things that happen during the experience. It is also here for anyone looking to do the program to learn from, people to come and go as the please and follow along on my journey. The Disbaords have connected me with so many amazing and supportive people and I am really so grateful. I just wanted to thank everyone on here who has loyally followed along with my old TRs and PTRs (if you are interested in those I will post the links below). Everyone that I have met so far has been so supportive and made this such a smooth transition for me. It’s amazing to feel like I have people all over backing me up on this HUGE endeavor. I want to thank everyone for their endless support and help.

    I look forward to sharing this next adventure with you and I hope that you enjoy reading long with me!!! I would like to say off the bat that this is a LIVE report. I am actually living in Florida as we speak, it’s not something that I am doing have complete the program so I will be learning and sharing along the way. Once I get into full work mode I’m not sure how often I will be able to update but I will do my best to keep everyone up to speed by checking in from time to time, which means there may be a lack of pictures so please bare with me!!!

    Thank you all once again for your support, guidance and encouragement. I can’t wait to see what the Disney College Program has in store for me :goodvibes

    So excited for you!!
    Like you I grew up telling people I wanted to be a cast member while the rest of my fellow pre-schoolers were saying fireman. It always threw my teachers for a loop because they had no idea waht I was talking about.
    I was wondering if you've met anyone in your DCP yet that is from a Canadian university? I'm keeping my hopes up that if I include some crazy inspirational letter about my dreams in my application that maybe they'll overlook that little rule and let me join them in Florida.
    Alright now that I have written a novel on your page, have a magical day!

    Yay!!! Thank you for joining in :blush:



    Thank you so much!!! I'm glad you enjoy them and I hope that you like this one as well. I am going to try my hardest to post more often. Thank you for the well wishes.


    I'm so glad to finally be here!!! Things are going perfectly, I only wish there were more hours in the day to update everyone.



    Yay!!! Thank you for your well wishes on twitter. I hope I can experience enough for the both of us while I am here:rotfl:



    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! So far I am LOVING IT. I couldn't be happier.



    YAY!!! I am so glad to hear that people are interested :goodvibes



    Thank you, I am glad you have decided to make an appearance!!! I hope that you enjoy the ride.



    Thank you!!! I'm glad to hear of a fellow young cast member at heart.

    I have met TONS of people from Canada actually. They just have to come down through what is known as the ICP or International College Program. It's totally a possibility without having to write any kind of letter hoping to bend the rules. I would look into it!!!

    I love novels so if at any point you wish to leave another or have any questions feel free to ask them!!!



    Thank you!!! I am having a lovely time here so far. I am hoping to get a lot more updates in there. It's just so hard because I am still in go to the park in my free time mode haha I really don't think that that is a mode I will ever get out of though.



    Thank you, I am so grateful to have the opportunity!!!

    And I wonder what smart man said that... :goodvibes



    YAY!!! Thank you for joining in on my crazy experience. I can't even believe how quickly it is going by already.



    Thank you for reading along :goodvibes I hope that you enjoy it and can live vicariously through my posts.



    Me too!!! So far it's kind of proving to be a lot to handle but I am hoping to get caught up on it. I have the next few mornings off, prime catch up time!!!



    Thanks so much Meg :goodvibes It was amazing meeting you as well!!! I hope that we can meet up when you are here again, maybe even for a little monger next time.



    Thank you for joining in!!!



    Thank you so much for reading along :blush:
