Cast Member in Wonderland

Follow me as I plunge down the rabbit hole to surface in the amazing and wondrous world of Disney as I work for the mouse, play at the mouse's house, and live near the mouse. In every sense of the phrase, I will be living, breathing, and drinking Disney. I'll be sharing my experiences of living on-property, working on-property, and making friends on-property as a part of the Disney College Program from Feb 1 2010 until August 14 2010.

So come and talk a walk with me in the golden afternoon, through the Tulgey Woods, and straight into the mouse's life.

    The fact that the audition was in Oklahoma City means that I had to drive 2.5 hours each way to get to this audition, and this was the closest one! Crazy, I know! But I had to do it to see if I could be in the entertainment department so alas, I must.

    I arrived ...

  4. "Honey, the phone is for you... it's Mickey"

    After carefully researching and weighing my options with the Disney college Program I decided to go through and apply to the program that would magically whisk me off to Disney World when I should be stuck at school.

  5. The Breath Before the Mouse

    I've just been accepted into the Disney College Program and will be heading out there and arriving on February 1, 2010. I'm assigned temporarily to merchandising, but I've also auditioned for the Entertainment Department which has about 250 spots for over 1000 people to fill, so it's a bit stressful.

    This is the very first entry into my hopefully continuing blog from the perspective of a cast member who not only works at Disney, but lives there and plays there.
