ok..  
Well, I'm here. In my cabin on the ship. Ship life isn't what I was expecting at all. It's boring, there's nothing to do, I keep getting lost, there's a billion rules, people seem to have it in for the newbies. The ship is really rocky at the moment, back and forth all the time. I haven't been sick yet but last night I felt so bad.
I have a few cabin issues too. I wouldn't mind the small cabins if I was sharing with a good friend.

I don't know what to do. I dont want to be a quitter, but I just hope things get better! Eek.

Disney booked my flight for me a few days ago. I'm flying direct to Orlando. Never flown on my own before (let alone for that long!) so that will be interesting... So everything is coming into place. I have a list of things I need to buy before I go. My suitcase I ordered has just arrived so I can start putting things in there soon. I've finally found out what Disney shoes I need so I'll be getting them at the weekend.
So I just need to be patient and wait now. I think it's only around 4 weeks to go now. Eeeek. Can't wait to celebrate Halloween Disney/American style!

I had my medical in London a few weeks ago. And this week I'm heading back to London for my visa appointment! Things are really moving fast. I think I forgot to mention... I got my date! I was on vacation at Walt Disney World when I got a phone call from Disney Cruise Line asking if I'm available for October. Well I am! So that's when I'm going. It hasn't really hit me yet that it's next month. Like 6 weeks away. It is going to go so fast. It feels so weird I am leaving work soon. Eeeeeep.

I had two emails from Disney Cruise Line today. One was a welcome pack with pages and pages of information for new hires. There's so much information to take in. I will be staying at All Star Sports when I get there for a few days, while we do our on-shore training. They even sent me luggage tags!
The second email was asking for some details such as what I'd like on my name tag. Unfortunately I don't get to put what town I'm from, like the WDW name tags, just my name. I think it will just say England, or United Kingdom. It didn't say my location at all on my Disneyland Paris name tag.

Things are moving pretty fast! I still don't have a start date but they just want me to be prepared to go quickly I think. Only a few weeks until I'm back in the States for a vacation and I can't wait!

I think this blog is due an update.

I went to Disneyland Paris to work over Christmas for a short contract. It wasn't as magical as I'd expected. I'd been there before and enjoyed it but working there is totally different. I had passed the French interview questions, but when I arrived, it was very obvious to me that I needed to be fluent in French. I managed to get by with the French that I knew but found it hard to make conversation with people.

I could've gone back to work at DLRP in February for a longer contract, but I decided against it because it was just too different from WDW, the people there just didn't care about the magic. I knew I'd be fluent in no time because of the amount of French I had to speak, but that alone wasn't enough to convince me to go back to work there.

Maybe one day if it becomes more magical..

Anyway, the most important part of this post was to say that I've just been accepted onto The Disney Cruiseline as a Merchandise Hostess.

It's 70 hours a week, no days off, 6 month contract. But there will be NO language problems (lol) and I will be where I feel most at home.. the USA.

I have high hopes for DCL. I know a lot of people quit, but I really want to give this a go and see where it takes me. What I want most in my life is a career in Disney and I'm hoping that this is the way to go.....

My current job doesn't end for a few months yet and I am not due to start on the cruise until the end of the year so I'm not sure if I will update until nearer the time..

I think I will start a new blog just for my DCL adventure, and I will definitely post the link on here! :)

I'm going back to WDW in a few weeks, and I really can't wait. Just so glad I will be a part of the magic again.

I'm back again. Making an announcement!

For the past couple of months, I have been back at my old job at the Disney Store. I also decided to take night classes in French. I realised that there probably wont be another chance for me to work at Walt Disney World, since they only let you do the program once, and it's practically impossible for me to move over there. So my best option was to try for Disneyland Paris.

I had some contact details that WDW had passed onto me about working there, and last month I decided just to send an email to find out a little more info. What I got back was something I had never imagined! I had an interview, and miraculously my French was good enough. I was offered a job in Disneyland Paris!

I will be working in either Newport Bay or Hotel New York, and my role begins in a couple of weeks, so watch this space, my new adventure is about to begin...

I'm back home in England, and have been for almost a month now which is shocking. Time has just gone so fast. I told myself I wasn't going to blog again. On here at least. But I just feel like there's something unfinished about this.
Being back at home has its good points and bad points. I love LOVE being with my family and seeing my friends again, and seeing my little town, I absolutely love that part. The only thing is.. it's not Disney. I knew it wasn't going to be, obviously, but I never thought I'd miss the work quite as much as I do. I guess I took it all for granted and I'm only realising it now, however it seems to be the same for everyone who has returned from the Cultural Rep Programme.
I know now what I want in life, and that is to work for Disney, to devote my life to it, because that is who I am, I am Disney!
I had an interview at the Disney Store, where I worked before WDW, and I have been lucky enough to get the job. I should be starting next week. I just love that I can still call myself a Cast Member, because that's what I always want to be.

Watch this space about other things that may happen. I'm not sure if or when I will post them. Or even if I will post again..


Until then......

Pixie dust prevails and dreams come true :)
