Today marks my 1 year anniversary working for Disney!
I moved into Chatham Square May 20th and began a journey that has changed my life forever. During my program I was lucky enough to have some amazing roommates one of which became my best friend, enjoy a short lived romance, and make many lasting friendships with fellow CP’s who went through all the heartache of being an intern just like I did. Not everything about my program was glamorous, but I appreciate the downs just as much as the ups. I never imagined then that working for Disney would take me half way across the world to work in another Disney Park, but happily fate took the reigns and here I am in Tokyo Disneyland. I am so lucky I have such a supportive family who has helped me transition two major moves in one year, and is willing to support my next move after this contract where ever that may be.
Working for this company has changed my perception of people by showing me that a smile and a story can impact not only someones day but their life. I am very grateful that I get to be a part of that storytelling in the parks. I think the most important thing I have learned is that any dream is possible, and wished do come true, you can reach the stars if you just believe! …. yes I did just quote castle show, its my favorite! More importantly I have to thank the characters I have been able to spend time with because they bring me just as much- if not more joy as they bring the guests, So here is to you King Louie, Mr.Penguin, Rapunzel, Jessie, Mr.Smee, Cinderella, Ariel, Mrs.Incredible, and Belle. I can’t wait to see where I end up next year!! I might still be in Asia, back in the States, or on a cruise ship, but where ever I’ll be I know I will be happy because I am doing what I love. :)
