The girls you see below just met for the first time after several months. They went through the application process of the Disney College Program together, decided they would be roommates, and became best friends for life. Andrea DeBrino, I love you so much. I’m so glad we went through the college program together and I can’t wait to see what we get into next!
OH MY GOODNESS, my day was just made. I feel like crying after seeing all of these photos.
For those of you who don’t know, Kayla was my roommate during the college program and we became best friends before we even met each other in person. We called each other every day and we always got VERY LITTLE SLEEP because either her or I would stay up talking to the other person about our lives haha. She’s one of my best friends. I even told Steve the other day that if I have a wedding, she is DEFINITELY one of my bridesmaids. I can’t believe all of those pictures!!
Kayla, I love you, I’m so sorry I got so upset your last day here but it’s because I really was just angry that my best friend was leaving me and I was scared I was going to be depressed after. I wasn’t depressed after but I still missed you like crazy! I can’t wait to see you again bestie!
I definitely saw you in your Captain America costume the other night when I was working at the Bakery/Ice Cream shop but had no idea it was you. Awesome costume by the way, it was one of the best I saw all night. :]
Haha that’s awesome! We went in there because we were 1. Super thirsty and 2. Needed caffeine too. I felt silly getting a water and a coke but it was necessary! It was fun going in there!
Hey! Love your blog. Just a question, would you ever consider doing another CP? Or do you prefer seasonal/part-time and living off property?
Thanks a ton! I think I would only consider it if I was seriously lacking on hours at work hahaha. I LOVE living off property, I love the flexibility I have in my schedule and all the cool opportunities I have. So yes, I think I prefer seasonal, the thing I miss most about the CP status is the guaranteed 32 hours a week. *le sigh*
Once upon a time, a group of college students came together on a Facebook group excited about the prospects of participating in the Walt Disney World College Program. These kids were so pumped that they couldn’t stop talking about their futures! First they chatted on Facebook, then upgraded to a…
I really haven’t been sad in a long time but tonight is definitely one of those nights.
I have so much on my mind. First off, I was super excited to be enrolled in class this fall but my dad accidentally spaced on paying tuition so they dropped me from the class and now it’s full and I have no where to go. Bluh. I’m not mad at my dad at all, I’ve forgotten plenty of important things but I’m just a little sad because now I’m ineligible for a professional internship and my good student discount for insurance.
My lease ends at the end of May, which is very far away- but I have NO idea where to go after it’s done. Who to live with and where to live at (Seattle, Orlando?).
I’m also getting no hours at work which means less money which creates a very stressed Andrea. I can still afford rent but it means no fun for a bit :(
IN GOOD NEWS THOUGH, I am going to Halloween Horror Nights this Saturday after I go to the 40th Anniversary Celebration for Disney! I’m also madly in love. And my friend Josh is coming to visit on the 13th. And that’s about it.
Le sigh. Time to buckle down and create a plan! :)
I'm pretty sure I stood across the street from you at the Boo To You preview. I'm so sorry if that sounds creepy hahah.
Haha the cast preview? That’s awesome! The cast preview was so much fun. We were right in front of the shooting arcade I think, or somewhere near there, but people were standing up higher than us right behind us due to the platform. It was probably me!
More power to you for cooking! Haha last time I tried that, I ended up burning bread in the micowave somehow! Oh and congrats on the 4 days of no soda! I would start having some major withdrawal headaches if I did that, so take pride in the fact that you have the strength to do it! It will benefit you in the long run!
Hahaha! I over cooked my steak the other day :( And thanks a ton! I actually got super bad headaches so I started slowly going off of it and then had a cup of coffee during the day instead and now I’m golden! Woo hopefully it lasts!
I really love your blog! I'm about to leave to begin my Disney College Program experience, and I'm starting to worry I won't like it. Keep in mind that I've been to Disney too many times to count and I feel like it's already my second home. Did you feel nervous/worried before you started, and did those feelings evaporate pretty quickly?
Thank you! And yes, I was super nervous! Before I left my house I was crying and I kept trying to back out of it in my head haha it was dreadful. Once you get down here it gets pretty fun, at least it did for me. My roommates became friends of mine so it was pretty easy to settle into things down here. So yes, I was extremely nervous, especially my first couple weeks of work, but it disappeared with time! :)
Quick Question! I know this sounds creepy...but were you working on the 25th at the Magic Kingdom by any chance? I could have SWORN it was you that took a picture for my friends and I infront of the castle.. O.o
Hahaha not creepy! And yes I was working! But I was working Captain Jack Sparrow’s Pirate Tutorial- at least, I am pretty sure I was o.O
You've probably answered this before, but where does your URL name come from?
I haven’t actually! And unfortunately it’s not too original, haha, but I wish it was. “disney” obviously from being at disney, I thought since that’s what my blog is about it should be in the name. and “debrino” is my last name- it’s Italian! And disneyandrea didn’t sound so great, so disneydebrino became my choice!
did i ever mention how awesome you are? looks like you're having tons of fun!
Haha oh my goodness! You guys are seriously all too nice. I love following all of your blogs, too! And so far I am having a blast, I think it’s because I got a new lens and I’m a little addicted to it right now haha! Also I took 4 days off of work this week so I am rejuvenated! Woo! But seriously, thank you! You are so awesome!
Confirmed: Rapunzel and Flynn at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party
I know a ton of people were concerned, but fear not! Rapunzel and Flynn will both be out to meet you all during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Walt Disney World :) Their location is still TBD, but they will be at the parties. The reason for the confusion on the characters is because someone posted an unofficial list of characters for the parties and that list was not accurate.
There’s going to be an AWESOME list of characters at the parties, which I can’t wait to tell you guys all about once I’m allowed to (and that it’s official)! After doing test shots last night of locations and getting everything figured out for the parties, I can’t wait to see you all there because you’re all going to have a blast!
I’m also going to the first party on September 13th! Anyone else going to Mickey’s Not So Scary?
I haven’t worked this late in so long! I don’t know how I did it during my college program haha! I think because currently I’m so used to working mornings, it totally threw me off. But my shift was so cool! I loved every part of it even though I was exhausted and felt like I didn’t really contribute much at certain parts haha but it was a long, cool shift. We got our settings figured out for the parties, got our locations mostly figured out, I got to meet some more Disney people, and walk a ton. Success!
On that note, I have lots of cool and exciting news for everyone! I know lots of people are asking about Rapunzel and Flynn so check back here today (as in Friday) at 6pm EST for a post about that.
And with that, I bid you all goodnight! And if any of you actually see this post, which I highly doubt because it’s the middle of the night- you are awesome.
Going into work from 10pm to 4am tonight to do a walkthrough of the Halloween party for Disney!
Tonight with my leaders I’m going through the Magic Kingdom to get everything set-up for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party! That means I’ll have a better idea of exactly which characters will be at the parties, so all of you won’t have to worry anymore because I’m getting TONS of questions about it! Haha.
Anyway, it should be an interesting night because I’ve been up since 7ish so here’s to hoping I don’t fall asleep while walking! Eek!
