Is it lame to be in the Disney College Program if you're under 21? What kind of things are there to do for people under 21, and are they allowed in the over 21 apartments with their friends? Thanks! :)
I’m under 21 and it wasn’t lame! Actually a lot of people were under 21, but you do get more freedom if you are 21 or older. You can do anything in the Disney area, and go to lots of clubs that are 18 and older, but most of City Walk is 21 and up, and so are so other Disney things like Jellyrolls and the Atlantic Dance Hall. And you are definitely allowed in 21 and up apartments! You just can’t consume alcohol while being there.
I WASN'T DONE AND MY STUPID COMPUTER MADE ME SEND IT :( Anyway, "WE have pushed our beds together, shared clothes, and rocked Magic Kingdom like it had never been rocked before. That is all. Have a magical day."
Oh goodness! By the way people, pushing your beds together is a code violation that we found out about shortly after hahaha!
Ma'am, I need to edit your introduction post. "Good mooooooorning, bababababababababaaa, my name is Andrea, commonly known as Andie, and one of my best friends is Kayla Marburger, who I did everything with during my college program and I love her more than I love Famous Amos cookies. We've watched Tangled on a loop non-stop for a week, "
Hahahaha!! Oh my goodness I am literally cracking up. I still can’t believe we had Tangled on a loop for that long, we must be nuts. I miss you like crazy!! Please come live with me!
I think it's time I introduce myself, since I haven't done a post about me in months,
and my new followers probably have no idea who the heck I am except for what’s posted on the left hand side of my tumblr! Haha.
First off, my name is Andrea! Some people call me Andie, but not really as much anymore.
I am a 20-year-old who works at Walt Disney World in Magic Kingdom as a Disney Photopass Photographer (aka Disney Photo Imaging (DPI)). I did the Spring 2011 Disney College Program, and now I am a seasonal cast member who lives near property, but I still work full-time hours (until I get capped- eek!).
My dream is to be in the film business as either a director, producer, editor, or writer. I am kind of all over the place. I love taking pictures and I’ve grown a ton in photography since I started at Disney.
I’ve found a wonderful group of friends down here that’s constantly referred to as the Tangled crew and I love them all to death. I have two wonderful roommates who are the complete opposite of what I am but they make me tune into my girly side that hasn’t really had a chance to come out yet until I moved here.
At the end of the day, my favorite thing to do is curl up in a blanket (with the fan or AC on- it’s so hot here!), read a good book, and edit photos or video. I also like to roam all over Tumblr and try to update this as much as possible.
My “current” obsessions right now is Harry Potter (since forever), The Hunger Games, and the Avengers.
I love meeting and talking to new people- I’ve actually met quite a few followers at Disney while working already!
You guys are all fantastic and I hope I can be of some help with whatever you need!
This is kinda random but I'm hoping you know.. my friend and I want to go to Disney World this October, and we were wondering- Do they still do the Dream Along With Mickey show during the day? Before the Halloween Parties start? Or does the Villian show take over 24/7? Thanksss if you happen to know! :)
Sorry for the delay in this! But I asked a cast member about this since I haven’t been there, and he said they still do Dream Along with Mickey during the day, THEN the Villian show comes out. If anyone has any other information about this please let me know! :)
You have possibly just become one of my favorite people (I sound like a creeper) but you like HP and the Hunger Games and you work for Disney :) oh I'm definitely going to be at MK on Sunday the 28th! Will you be there? and I'll be there a couple more times during the week :)
hahaha! You aren’t creepy! But yes, I like all three! And really?! That’s awesome! I’ll be over at Captain Jack Sparrow’s Pirate Tutorial in Adventureland all day! His show times are 10:15, 11:20, 12:25, 2:15, 3:20 and 4:25. I’m off the rest of the week until Friday! Yippee!
I owe the biggest update ever. I am also straight exhausted because I’ve been working like a crazy women AND just finished the Hunger Games series. Which, by the way, if you haven’t read it, you definitely should.
Tonight I’ll be doing laundry but I’m really hoping to get some pictures uploaded to post on here!
I’ll try and answer as many questions as possible, there’s so many D: Please keep in mind that I’ve answered most of them in the last few pages!!
So the picture of you at Captain Jack Pirate Tutorial, I was wondering what you take photos of when your doing that? Can you just take random phots or do you have to wait til someone asks you to take photos?
Oh! It’s all candid shots. So while the show is going on I take pictures of the kids while they watch they show, and copy Jack (like when he asks them to jump up and down and wave their hands in the air), and then I photograph the 4 kids who get chosen to fight on stage as well as the kids who each get to go up and get a scroll! Then I hand out cards of the entire show to each family after :)!
Hi! We never really talked but Ive followed you for a while. I just wanted to send you a message because I actually JUST saw you by the Pirate's League! I thought you looked familiar but I didnt say anything because my mom & I were rushing to the plaza for our reservations. But that's pretty much all I wanted to say :) haha
Haha! Today? Well I am assuming today. Sorry you had to see me on such an off day! Unless you saw me handing out eye patches because I did do that quite a bit. Next time totally say hi! People do it all the time, it’s awesome! I’m surprised so many people see me at the Pirates League when most of my shift over there is spent in a hidden room. That’s awesome though!!
Ah, Florida, the summer of storms... & apparently naps and movies.
It’s been raining here every single day for ages! And it’s been pretty amazing. I don’t mind the rain at all.
Today I had a rover shift which means I have one land assigned to me and I take candid photos as I’m walking around from 9am to 2pm. I was in Fantasyland, which is my favorite to Rover in, but because of the rain I was really only limited to taking pictures of families on Snow White’s Scary Adventures. Once the rain let up, I got pictures of kids trying to pull the sword out of the stone, people on the carousel, and just random photos of people posing behind the castle! It’ll be interesting to find out how many pictures made it on the Magic, The Memories, and You! tonight!
Once I got home I read for a little bit and then passed out for a little bit of a nap! Now I’m reading again, my book is ALMOST finished! Ah I’ve been trying to finish this book for ages.
The rest of this week is going to be awesome in terms of my work schedule. I’m Pirates League tomorrow and Friday, and then sailing with Captain Jack Sparrow all of Saturday, which is one of my favorite shifts.
I’ve seen lots of cute kids these past few days and it makes my job worth every second!
Also I have lots of exciting news but I’ll save that for tomorrow :)
what is your Halloween costume??? I know it's changed like 20209287509 times :)
hahaha! I know, I keep changing my mind! But for sure me and Maddie and Krista are going to be the avengers, like I am going to be Captain America, Maddie is going to be Thor, and Krista is going to be Iron Man. We still need a hulk and other guys! Haha I’m so stoked. But I’m still wanting to do the Clue thing and the princess one!
Hey! So it sounds like you have a lot of fun working at WDW, how was the Disney College Program? And how do you get to become a seasonal cast member after you have finished the program? Sorry I'm just curious because I've been thinking of doing it for a while now.
Hey! Sorry for the late response :) It was, and still is, a total blast! Best job I’ve ever had so far. As my program was about to come to an end, my leader posted something in our base saying, “If you’re in transfer guidelines, e-mail me your interest in being seasonal”. So I did, and it was automatic after my program ended! :)
Hey friends, first off I am so sorry for not updating in ages!
So, what to update you with? I’m working over at the Pirates League and with Captain Jack Sparrow most of my work weeks now! I’m still on the waiting list for full-time. I just had my interview for Hard Ticket Support Staff for the Christmas and Halloween parties. I’m super exhausted but now that I’m only getting scheduled 5 days a week, things are looking good!
I finally have Halloween costumes figured out. So badass!
As for Florida weather, it’s been super hot and humid, with a daily thunder/lightning storm in the middle of the day. I love watching lightning so I haven’t had any real complaints about it so far except for the fact that I was going to go see my family at the beach today and now I can’t :/.
Let’s see… I GOT A POTTERMORE ACCOUNT! And I am super stoked about it! I pulled an all nighter, while being made fun of by Steve, to get it hahaha. My username on there is “WizardHallow206”. I was super excited by the 206 because that’s my area code in Seattle. Woo!
Anyway, I’ll be answering everyone’s questions today and posting some pictures! I’ve missed you all! Hope all is well!
