Hey there! I'm Kelly and this is going to be a blog all about my upcoming adventure on the Walt Disney World College Program!
Just some background info about me, I'm a 19 year old sophomore at Buffalo State College in Buffalo, NY. I am pretty sure I will be doing something with History in my life. I'm a total history dweeb! I currently work at Ruby Tuesday, where I do a ton of stuff like serving, food running, and bar tending. I've been there almost 2 1/2 years! This is my mom and I @ the start of our last Disney trip, July 4th-12th 2008!
I have always, ALWAYS wanted to do this internship. I have been visiting the parks since I was 2, going on 3, and have gone 10 times throughout the years. I love all the movies, and I probably know entirely too much about the parks, movies, and Walt Disney. Really. :)
Well one month ago I interviewed (March 15th to be exact) to do the program. I got a pending letter on the 26th. The waiting has to be the most excruciating experience I have ever experienced in my life!! I honestly began to give up hope! I even called Disney yesterday to ask some questions, and asked about what will happen Friday when I am supposed to call them regarding my status (us pending kids are given a date of which we will know the mouse's ultimate decision - mine was the 17th). She actually told me to anticipate a longer wait! I got off the phone (slightly dejected) and went about my day. I had so been looking forward to Friday since I got that letter!!
I came home from school, went to lunch, and came back home. SOMETHING kept telling me to open my email. And there it was! The most magical email these eyes have ever seen!
I am in such shock. STILL. Almost a day later. I honestly don't know when it will wear off. Maybe never. Which is OK with me. Oh, and when my purple folder comes in the snail mail, I will definitely be posting a picture of it on here.
I am so excited for what the future holds for me. This is really just an absolute dream come true. I am so happy and honored to have been given this opportunity.
I will be posting on here whenever I get the chance, but with finals coming up in a few weeks, I am getting kind of busy! But throughout the whole application process I found past CP's blogs to be really helpful, so I will do my best to keep up on this.
OH, I forgot to mention that I will be doing Attractions in the FALL 2009 season. So I will get to be there for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and MY 20th BIRTHDAY! I have always wanted to be in Disney for my birthday! How awesome is that?! Very I think!
If anyone has any questions regarding the application process, definitely check out the CP website. Anything little though that I may be able to answer, feel free to leave a comment. If I know the answer I will most definitely try to help!
Thanks for reading!
