    CONGRATULATIONS! You must be so excited. I saw the news just after you posted, but didn't want to say anything!

    Do you have a spot you'd like to work as concierge?

    I am slowly catching up one here. Working down here has been crazy. I would have loved to heve met you when you came down, but theres always another time lol. I really hope you get accepted onto the CP. It has been one of the best things that has happened to me. Your interview seemed to go really well and a lot similar to mine and I was still given one of my top roles even though I wasn't asked a lot of questions about it. I think you will be great and get a role that you really love:thumbsup2

    Woah, I can't believe I just caught up on all of that. I need to take a breather now lol I'm so glad though I caught up before baddabing this was done. :O Well, I love all the Disney facts you rambled off in the MK update, and just an edit, the effect used in the ballroom scene at the Haunted Mansion is called "Pepper's Ghost" not Magic, but I knew what you were talking about so that's all good and Little Leota at the end of the ride has a different voice... okay, I'll stop being a Disney know-it-all for ya.

    Sorry to hear you didn't get into your school's show, I've heard great things about Urinetown :) But INTO THE WOODS!!!! OMG so jealous! Stephen Sondheim <3 Huge theater geek right here, no shame. It really is a great show and a VERY big cast so I'm sure you have a good chance at getting in. I recommend for songs, "Children Will Listen" since I think the Witch is a soprano and same with the Baker's Wife both great roles. "Last Midnight" is also another good song if you are looking to play the Witch, but I'm not sure if either of these are soprano, but Bernadette Peters played the Witch so I have a feeling. I do recommend watching the filmed on Broadway movie with Bernadette Peters, it would probably help. Good luck with the auditions when the come up!

    Can't wait to read more and hear about your most recent trip! :mickeyjum

    P.S. Didn't know if you saw my tweet, but since I don't want to spoil anything... Congrats!

    YAY thanks!!

    Haha I'm glad you enjoyed all of the facts!
    Well now that I won't be here next semester, I'll have to miss out on Into the Woods. As sad as that is..... Disney is MUCH better. SO EXCITED! :banana:
    Thank you! ​

    I've already chatted with you about it on twitter, but I am beyond excited for you getting into the DCP AND getting Concierge. I mean, that is AWESOME. I hope you do get to work at Beach Club!

    Haha, it also dawned on me... With how popular you are here on the DIS, you are probably going to have SO many DISmeets while you are doing the DCP!

    Congratulations! All your work paid off :) I hope you have a fantastic experience doing the CP. I know someone doing the ICP at the moment who is having a bit of a negative experience but I think you'll have a blast! Your recent trip made me so jealous, following along on twitter and instagram :P

    Thank you so much! I am ecstatic! Aww thanks - I can't wait to share them!

    Thank you! Oh my goodness... that would be INCREDIBLE! If I worked at the YaCHt Club my life would really be full circle. :goodvibes

    Aww thank you so much! I am thrilled! I would LOVE to work there!

    Hahaha I was just talking about that today! It's going to be busy, busy, busy! I'm really looking forward to it!

    Hahaha aww thank you! :goodvibes

    Aww dang I'll just miss you! Hopefully I'll get to continue my career with Disney in the future so we will just have to meet up another time.
    Thank you so much!

    Aww thank you so much! That's sad that they are having a bad experience.. I hope it picks up! I think I will too! Aw thanks haha. It was an AMAZING trip! I can't wait to share!

    Real Life Update #4: ACCEPTED!
    October 13th, 2012

    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??

    party: CONCIERGE! party:

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


    I literally can't believe that I'm working CONCIERGE at the WALT DISNEY WORLD RESORT before the age of 20. I'm going after my dreams and I am so ecstatic that they are coming true!

    I found out that I was accepted on October 8th. It was the morning I was leaving Disney at 10 o'clock am. We were driving to 1900 Park Fare for breakfast and going under the Magic Kingdom signs when I got my email. It LITERALLY felt like a movie. It couldn't have been more perfect. God clearly had a say in that one. ;)

    I opened the email and I screamed! I cried and just couldn't believe it was actually real.

    Guys, I have my DREAM JOB at Disney. I literally CANNOT believe it. I have been preparing for this role since the day I was born. I am absolutely beyond thrilled. :goodvibes

    I'm waiting to get everything approved by my advisors at school before I can officially "accept" the offer, but it has to be done before Thursday! So soon I will know what day I am officially moving to Disney World!

    I don't find out what resort I am working at until I get there (or potentially a few weeks before) so we're in a whole new waiting game! Fingers crossed I get placed at a Magic Kingdom or Epcot resort!!

    And on top of that, my friend Mark got accepted to the DCP yesterday and he's going with me! He got accepted for Costuming but is going to an audition this weekend. Fingers crossed for him! We are both SO EXCITED and can't stop talking about it!!

    So... pretty much this is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to me in my entire life. LITERALLY my dream is coming true. I can't wait to begin the adventure of a lifetime. It's exactly what I need right now... I know it's going to be life changing and it's going to just help me figure out what I really want to do. I can't wait to begin my journey!

    Thank you all for the prayers and pixie dust - they really paid off! Now in return, I will have to pay you back my sharing all of my stories from LIVING IN DISNEY WORLD. Sounds like a pretty good deal, right? :thumbsup2

    As far as the trip reports go... I have about 2 more updates to do for this one and 6 more to go for HHI. Once I finish up the Christmas trip, I'm hoping to post the new report for October! It was THE MOST incredible vacation EVER. We just kept having magical moment after magical moment. Everything that could have gone right actually did! I can't wait to share everything with you all!

    Once again, thank you so much for following along! I hope you continue to enjoy the trip reports, the life updates, and then eventually my experience with the DCP! I AM SO EXCITED!!!!! :banana:

    Continued in Next Post
