Deployed- Pop Century

I have been deployed to a new work location. At first I was freaking out. I hate new things. I love my work location and friends, and I didn't want to be away from them. Concierge cast members are very frequently deployed. I think once you hit 60 days in your location they are able to send you where ever they'd like. Luckily another CP from Coronado was deployed with me, that made it less scary. Honestly it is going just fine though. The vibe is way different because I am used to convention guests at Coronado. I love my costume though! Yay for skirts! When you are deployed you get a 2 hour class about the new location before you start working. That was really helpful. Luckily I have stayed at Pop Century so I am pretty familiar with it as well. Look at my new costume for the next two weeks :)

My lovely costume for the week

Apparently my skirt was too short- oops!

Professional Internship - I Got It!

Ok so I had been keeping my application process a secret, but now I can officially announce that I got a Professional Internship!!!!! I will be working Epcot Operations Support starting in June. I am so beyond excited about this role. From what I have gathered I will be responsible for all cast member events at Epcot as well as assisting in the Cast Service Center. I applied late February. I had my screener and got my drop down around March 20th. Then around March 27th I had an interview with the Epcot Ops department. I was accepted April 8th! It was the best thing ever.  I was headed to Publix with my work friend Catherine. I got a call from a 407 number and freaked out. It was Randy from recruiting. I knew calls from Randy were usually a good sign, but I tried to keep composure incase it was bad news. He asked me a series of questions about Disney look, transportation etc. Then he said "I have one more question for you, would you like a PI?" I screamed so loud (poor Randy). My friend Catherine made a short video clip of me freaking out. I will post that as soon as I can figure out how to upload it. Can't wait to share all of my PI stories with you guys!!!
