8 More Days!

Hi guys. So i am almost done with this program and the time has flown by! I am going to miss it, but Im so ready to go home as well. Friday and Saturday I worked from 11pm till 5:45am for disney's last grad nites. Before work on Friday I went to illuminations with Pam and we explored EPCOT as well. Before illuminations we saved our spots for an hour and played with a little 3 year old brittish boy named will and some girls who were next to us as well. The lady next to me had a 4 year old girl, a 5 year old girl, a 6 month crying girl, and a one month sleeping boy. This lady was stressed, she wanted to leave because of the crying baby but couldnt push two strollers and have two kids as well. so she kept trying to reach her friends by radio to come and help her take the kids home, but they were on test track and couldnt hear her. During the show will sat with Pam and so did one of the little girls, while I helped the stressed out lady guard teritory. Eventually her family and friends came to help her and she was very thankful for our help entertaining her children. It was certainly and interesting illuminations, but a fun ones. Here are some fun pictures from our day.

The next day I worked grad nite again from 11pm till 545am so I went to Downtown Disney with cheryl and saw the new lego store and then we went and saw fantasmic and it was so much fun. Here are pictures of the new lego store.

Monday I had off of work and in the morning I went shopping with Ethan and Kimberly from work. I found I had more money than I thought I did so I bought a new vera bradely purse and some mickey pajama pants. Then Ethan and I went to magic kingdom had a snack and watched the parade. Next I went and met ariel and he left to go to a concert with his roomate. I spent the rest of the day bumming around magic kingdom. My favorite momment was in line for haunted mansion. The girl behind me from England seemed to be really scared. So I told her my 9 year old neice and 4 year old nephew went on it and they had fun. She kept asking me questions about the ride in her cute little accent and I told her and her sister that they would be ok that it was just some ghosts going to a bithday party at this old house. I told them what to expect and played with them in the que line. The mom was really nice and I told her I worked here and she said that it was cool and such. Then we went on the ride and the little girl was like can I ride with you? So I rode with the little girl and her mom. The other little girl rode with the grandma. The little girl was slightly scared but made it though the ride okay. On our way out the mom asked my name and I said it was Kayla. She said well her name is Anika and it was so nice to meet you. I said good bye to Anika even though she desperatly wanted me to hang out with her for the rest of the day. Later while waiting for the parade I saw Anika looking for a parade spot with her family and I said Hi Anika She waved back and had the biggest grin on her face. It was really nice to meet them. Here are some pictures of my day:

Today was Disney Graduation. I went and go my graduating ears and a certificate and even a poster that I am going to have all my disney friends sign. Then Cheryl and our friends from boardwalk and I went to Magic Kingdom and took pictures. We had a great time. Here are some more pictures for you to enjoy!

So only 8 more glorious days of working. I hope it all goes well.

Formal, Last Classes, Water Park, Poly!

Hey guys,

My two off days this week were fabulous, too bad I have to go back to work tonight. Well anyways on Monday I slept till 3pm because I worked till 5 am the night before. Then I did some cleaning and then I went to class at 4. My last class of Disney Heritage was fun. Last week we won the scavenger hunt so my team got a prize of College Program 30th anniversary pins. Then I went home and got ready for spring formal at coronodo springs resort. I went to the dance with my boardwalk friends: Cheryl, Ryan, Coree, and Karrin. We all looked amazing, had a lot of fun and ate a lot of food.

The next day I had my last Marketing You class with Cheryl and then Cheryl, Jenice, Karrin, and I went to Typhoon Lagoon Water park. The coolest thing we did was swim with sharks. They provide you with snorkle masks and you can swim accross an area filled with sharks and fish and stingrays. It was very nerve racking, but we all had fun conquring a scary thing. After that Cheryl made dinner for me and then we met up with Markus, Peter, and Logan. Sadly Peter self terminated himself because he really hated his job and needed to go home. So we celebrated his last night by watching wishes from the polynesian beach. We took lots of goofy pictures and had dole whips becasue they are peter's favorite. Then we went back to the boys house and played apples to apples. The night ended with promises to visit Peter and then we parted ways. Overall these two days were fantabulous, its just sad to see Peter go. It reminds me that in 18 short days I will have to leave all these fabulous people behind as well. So bittersweet.

Finally Universal!!!

So my entire program I have really wanted to go to universal and see harry potter world. So on Tuesday I went to Universal Islands of Adventures with my friend Alex and her boyfriend Shawn. We took the trolly all the way there and we had a blast. First we went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and went on the Hogwarts ride twice then had some butter beer which is delicious. Then we headed over to Jurasic Park then Alex started to feel really sick so she decided to leave with her boyfriend because her and her boyfriend have season passes. So I spent the rest of my day alone, which made me miss my family cuz every one else was with their families. but i lived and ended up having a decent time. However Universal needs to seriously work on their theming. Most of the lands you actually feel like you are actually in Dr. Suess world, or hogwarts, or a comic book, but the rides lack a story. I feel that when you ride the hulk roller coaster, wheather or not you have seen the movie or read the comics you should understand the story of the ride, which I did not. They often show videos to explain the story in the que lines, but since the lines are loud or move fast you often miss the story. Also from jurasic park you can see hogwarts! bad themeing. Also, in the que line for the hogwarts ride you can see part of the ride building.. bad themeing! But, overall I had fun, just its not as good as disney.

Wow its been a long time

Hi guys it has been some time since i have had time to update my blog. It's easter so Happy Easter to you all. Why am I writing on easter you ask? Because I called in sick, because im sick and I can't possibly imagine working till 5 am when i am sick. Yes I work till 5am! This past week has been crazy I worked till 4am three nights in a row, then 3:15, then 3:45am. Last night I went home early because I wasn't feeling well. Today I just slept and lounged around, dyed easter eggs with my roomie, and watched burlesque.

Since my program is done in 26 days!!! I am trying to have as much fun as possible. I've been to the parks a lot, resort hoping, and out to dinner. I have also planned to go to the mall tomorrow to get a formal dress for our formal on may 2 (also Gracies 9th birthday) and then on tuesday I am going to universal. I am really excited to see harry potter world. I guess I'll post some pictures of my recent adventures.

Water Park, Class, No Hoop De Doo Revue, and EPCOT

So today I had off and at 11am I went to Blizzard Beach with my friend Kayla from work. yes we have the same name and love to call each other by out names cuz it is fun. I have never been to a disney water park, so I was thinking like everything else disney it would be amazing, like nothing i'd ever seen before. So its not that great I mean its nice a lot like Six Flag's water park back home, but not that over the top exciting like I expect disney to be. Still it was fun, we went on a few rides, ate some food, and headed home. Below is the picture of Kayla and I on the way home:)

After the water park I went to my weekly disney heritage class where today I learned all about EPCOT. It was great and our guest presenter was really funny. Next I was suppose to go to Hoop De Doo Revue but everyone bailed on me. So instead I went to EPCOT with Cheryl, Ryan, and Justina. Below are some of our adventures!

Megan, Chris, and the gang come to Visit!


Sorry I haven't written in a while, life has been crazy busy. Well last week Chris and his friends Tim and Robin, and my friend Megan came to visit. On the first day we went to downtown disney and at night Chris and I had a date night at Cirque du Soleil, it was amazing! Then we all went out in Downtown orlando to have some fun on St. Patricks day. The next day we went to EPCOT and got to see some countries, eat at Italy(DELICIOUS), and go on mission space. I left the group to head to work till 4am! Don't worry thats typical so I handeled it fine. Then I met up with megan the next day at Disney's Hollywood Studios. We got to see and do almost everything. Megan was so scared to go on the tower of terror. I convinced her to go and she was shaking and wanted to get off the ride. By the time we started to drop she was like this is great we should go again. So we went on it twice in a row and then rode rockin roller coaster. We ended our night with the fabulous fantasmic!!! We loved it soo much! The next day we went to see Tim's sister Beth at Sea World. Beth is a trainer at the sea lion show so we went and saw it. It was really funny and we all had fun. After the show we got pictures with a walrus who was huge!! Her name was Slow Poke. At the end of that day Tim and Robin headed to the air port and Chris, Megan, and I checked in at Pop Century for two more days. The next day we went to Magic Kingdom and wore ourselves out. The last day we went to animal kingdom but had to leave at 3:00 so megan and chris could catch their flight home. It was a great vacation, but now Im back to reality working till 2,3, or even 5 in the morning, oh the life of a disney cast member!(Pictures will not load I am mad, so this post will be pictureless)
