Sorry it's taken so long to reply but work seems to keep getting in the way.Thanks for your kind comments I love the hot weather of the summer! May was a bit of a shock for us I am used to June/July/August! Was not expecting to feel a chill in the mornings and evenings! I can't believe how quick your trip has come around Lesley - you must be so excited!!!! Are you going to do a TR or something?
We definitely laughed about it afterwards but still can't believe it happenedWhen I first heard about tankini-gate it sounded funny but on hearing the full story I say shame on Disney.
I love Raglan Road as well will def be back there on our next trip as the food is so good. Cocktails aren't bad either.
I know what you mean about Shamu bringing tears to your eyes.
Any luck with your ring?
Glad it's not just me - looks like we could get a club going here! Shamu bawlersFab day at sea world ,I must admit to feeling emotional too at sea world.
Shame on those workmen, very bad incident for Jo.
There are links to my (sort of) trip report and my blog in my 'signature' just underneath this post. If you click on them, it should take you straight there. You might notice that I never got round to finishing them... never say never though It's just that you are so insanely busy and tired on the Program that it seemed that there was never enough time to update it! There's lots of information about applying and the start though! Also, if your cousin has any specific questions then please feel free to direct them this way! I'll also message you my email addressBook ordered thanks
Have you a link to your college program report please? Our cousin is applying and I thought she may like to read yours. Thanks xx
They do indeed! Class shop isn't it?! Loved the Premium Outlets and how close they were to Chatham and the Commons I kept forgetting how huge it was now!They have American Eagle at the Premium Outlets!!!!
I say this as a past IP cast member (a long time ago mind you!) I was there when Premium Outlets was much smaller! However I would have spent soooo much more money had it been there while I was working there.
It took 4 years before I went back after working there, 8 girlies went on a reunion trip which was incredible! We went back to all our old places too and met up with our old managers and friends. You guys look like you had a fabulous time!!
I'm really enjoying reading your TR!
Girlie trips are epic for many different reasons I have no idea if we'll manage to do one again... 2015 would be when I'd like to go next, and that time I'd like to take my parents. No idea if it's possible as of yet, but that's the plan! I'm never going to write off another girlie trip in the future though!Finally caught up. Wow you lot had a ball. Really makes me want to do a girlie trip Have to keep doing the weekends in London for now.
Can understand why Jo hit the roof with the workers but I bet being a good old Wiganer ( down the road from me originally) she gave 'em what for
Loving the photos, keep 'em coming
It's a really good tour - it's the only one I've done but now I want to try another I bet it's slightly different for each tour guide, and obviously depends on what questions your group asks too!Hope you get better luck with the e-mail to sort out your ring.
I loved the KTTK tour when I did it. You did the main things and learnt the same things in general that I did but a few differences, I don't remember the flag one and found that interesting.
Haha, no problem I hope no one's annoyed by it! Hopefully I gave enough warningBethan, thankyou for posting the spoiler-filled KTTK tour! We did this in October but you remembered so much more than I did! Reading through it I was remembering things! Tom was picked to 'test' the Tiki roof! So glad you enjoyed it! Xx
I'd really like to know more about the levels of evacuation and what happened on 9/11 in the parks.09/05/2013: WE HAVE THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM!
We also talked about the three levels of Disney evacuation procedures that they have in place and it brought all my old CM training back to me! They have only used the highest level of evacuation procedure once in the entire 40 odd years of Magic Kingdom, and that was after the events of 9/11.
I could/do spend a small fortune in there!They do indeed! Class shop isn't it?! Loved the Premium Outlets and how close they were to Chatham and the Commons I kept forgetting how huge it was now!
I have no idea if we'll manage to do another reunion trip in the future, so glad we made this one. Do you ever have plans for another?
Thanks for your kind comment!
Thanks Andrea We have some lovely photos from the Photopass. I'll post a load when I've finished the reportday to remember fab times, I love the photo of you all at epcot
I'll try and dig out some of my training stuff later but on brief recollection, there's three levels of evacuation there. They are Plans A, B and C.I'd really like to know more about the levels of evacuation and what happened on 9/11 in the parks.
I always said I'd get married out there, and after the ICP that just confirmed it for me. Just the small matter of finding a boyfriend now...Well, we worked for the mouse in 2004 (cant believe it's nearly 10 years ago!!) Since then, 2008 was out first proper reunion, then in 2010 I got married out there and 7 of the girls I worked with out there came to our wedding which was perfect!
Then one of the other girls got married in 2011 but unfortunately I couldn't make it so soon after our wedding.
And in 2013 we are going out for wedding number 3 (so excited ) in Key West followed by a trip "home"
We are all so excited!
We all try to see each other regularly even though we live all over the country and when we get together it's like we've never been apart!
You will find a time to go back I can assure you
'Our' Matt had dark curly hair but was also a bit camp ! Maybe he's dyed his hair haha! I would love to do the KTTK tour again with a different guideJust caught up! Love your report on the tour, sounds like you had a great day. The first time we did it we had a Matt do our tour too (Blonde and a bit camp) and he was great. We wondered whether it would be as good second time round and it was - the other tour guide had his own stories to tell and it was totally different to the first tour. We saw woody and Jessie "headless" on ours. Was a bit strange.
Love the sound of Jiko. I love my wine so sounds like a great place for me to visit (this is why my parents come - babysitters lol)
