Last Post from Orlando

Tonight is the last night I will be typing in Orlando because at 6am I will be on my way to the international airport here in Orlando. I am sad to say good bye to the people I have meet here in the 6 months and yet happy to be going home to the mountains that I have been missing very much. One thing I am not looking forward to is the freezing weather there and boy that adjustment is going to be a harsh one at that too.

But after not seeing family for such a long time I know that they are ready to have me home and so are my friends. Maybe one day I can come back to Florida and maybe go to Disneyland in Anaheim, California. Which ever one will come first in my future life. When I get home I will be updating my blog a lot and for all of you to enjoy. I will see you all very soon!

Jokes that I See Related to Disney

For the longest time I would find things that were very funny about Disney but just today I saw this and I could not stop laughing because this is SO true. Even though I never worked at Maelstrom in the Norway pavilion, I can feel the pain of how crowded it was after the Frozen princesses came. Now trying to get through Norway at EPCOT is very hard and filled A LOT with guests. So for all of those who have seen the difference can agree with me and say that this picture is SO true. 
When I saw this one, I could not help but wonder what poor Flynn had to go through the entire movie.


This made my head spin. I think Disney was WAY head of 'Percy Jackson' on this one. Just took a little longer for us to see that. 
Way to set an example of talking to strangers Disney! This was scary yet funny at the same time.

Frying pans who knew they are of good use for almost ANYTHNG!! Thank you Rapunzel for that lesson! 
This one is now my all time favorite for now because it is very true. Sometimes you don't need your prince to save you right now. Sisters can save you before they do! Thank you Anna and Elsa for this lesson!
Even though there is a TON of Disney pictures that make fun of the characters but these are the ones make me laugh.

Reflections of My Disney Adventures.

Today while I was looking around on Facebook, I came across this quote that had my own personal experiences that I have had here at Disney World. There will be sometimes you just want to quit and give up but if you think to yourself; "Who can I help create a wonderful trip here at Disney World?" it does help you move on and to 'Keep moving forward'.

During the summer I had to be completely honest, I was not ready for the swarming amounts of tour groups from South America come in all at once. Think on this level (150 or more kids in one group with only 3-4 adults in the group). Yeah I was ready to throw the towel in and just up and leave but I had to always ask myself "If I leave, there is no chance that I can help create the Magic here and some family or child may have a different view on their trip and may not want to come back."

There were other times it was from trying to deal with personal issues at the apartment that I was staying at for  my time. I had to learn at one point that since I did not feel like I was welcomed or belonged to go off and do things on my own. That was a hard lesson but after I went off to go do things with friends from work of by myself I had more fun than I did being all by myself.

During my many adventures I had some amazing things happen to me as well. My family decided to come and see me while I was here. I mean who doesn't want to get into Disney World for free? Having them come was amazing and to also mention that it was my little siblings first time to ANY Disney theme parks in their lives. Knowing how much a family of 4 blows for a few day trip it is very hard to even think of going with a family of 8. But having them come was the best medicine a girl could've ever asked for when she was struggling very badly in her life and needed to see some familiar faces.

Also during my adventures I was able to meet the most amazing cute couple ever! Author Shayne Leighton from the book series 'Of Light and Darkness' and her husband Frank. I met Shayne at a Book Fest in August and then in December I was bale to see Shayne again and meet her husband Frank for the first time. I will say from my own view that we OWNED the parks that we went to and boy I had a blast with them. I wish them the best of luck in their many adventures this year. Good luck you two!!

 In many ways I can say that the 'wilderness [was] explored' (Disney's Up) while I have been here and I wish that I could write more but I need to get my hands warm since it is freezing right now and I have to put them in warm water.

Thank You Disney for Everything!

Hey everyone, while you read this post you are now reading it from a girl who no longer works with Disney World. This is very tough for me to write this because all the fun memories I have had while living in Orlando for the past 6 1/2 months have been one in a million.

To all of my friends who are thinking about working for Disney World, you are going to be in for quite a treat. I know one of my friends was accepted to come here in about 2 weeks AND this is her first time coming to Disney World. She has been to Disneyland so the change will be quite an interesting one to hear from her. I wish her the best of luck and I hope that she enjoys working here just as much as I did.

Here are a few pictures that try to help capture what I have done and how I am going to miss this place VERY much! Thanks to every single person who helped create the Magic and as Walt once said "I hope that you never lose sight of one thing; it all began with a mouse."

Me with my AMAZING team mates at the Spike Fest! The Incomplete team wins the championship!!

Frank and Shayne came to see me before Christmas week. We owned it by the way!!
