Drankin' The Disney Kool-Aid

I have drank the Disney kool-aid and my God it is delicious. Ya know the term, "once you go black, you won't go back.."? Although I have made many extensive attempts to determine whether or not this statement is true my experiment remains to be on going. Anyways, before leaving many of my fellow Disney aficionados warned me that once you go Disney, you won't go back. I'm finding that statement to be very true.

What other company can you work for that brings you to tears on your first day of orientation? And no, not because you came to the realization that you pretty much signed your life away to work for a company that is killing your soul one work day at a time. Because you couldn't be more proud to be a part of a company that's all about believing the magic and making dreams come true! Corny, huh? I guess that's the Disney juice talking.

The one thing I've realized from the few days of working here is that I'm actually quite knowledgeable when it comes to the Walt Disney history! I could spend hours learning more about Walt Disney and how this successful company came to be. The main thing that Disney instills in their cast members is that we are all a part of the magic. Whether you're sitting behind the desk or in the front lines of entertainment, we're all very important parts of this huge show that's playing 365 days a year! During my first day of orientation they wanted to remind us just how magical Disney is to so many people. They played a montage showing real footage of parents surprising their kids with a trip to Disney world. Yeah, turn on the water works.

I'm so excited to be a part of the magic and even more excited to see where my Disney career takes me! With that said, this was just a little introduction to the next 7 months of my journey here. I've realized that my time here is going to be humbling, full of hard work, late hours, soul searching, and much much more! One thing is definitely true, chasing your dreams isn't easy, but you gotta believe it's gonna be worth it in the end.

My view right now..
Be sure to follow me on Instagram if you want to be bombarded with some Disney pixie dust!

This quick update must come to an end because I'm literally a few feet from the doors at Epcot and I'm dying to grab some champagne and something sweet from Italy. Oh, cause you know I'm about that life now.
