Signed up to audition at Halloween Horror Nights...
Not really sure how I feel about it yet… I’m going to the internal audition for Universal for Halloween Horror Nights, and I already work there for the Macy’s Parade as a performer, but horror nights would be interesting… Bah!
I think if you go out of town all the time and you are never, ever home it’s a really bad idea to bring something new into your place. Just saying. I can’t wait for my new place!!
WE GOT APPROVED FOR OUR APARTMENT!
YAY YAY YAY
hall-ie asked: Will you be working MK on Tuesday? I'll be playing around in the park and would love to stop by for a photo & to say hi! :)
Today was really great but also really bad,
I ran into so many people I love at work, and it turned out to be a fun day, but I just felt so off. And stressed, and confused, and lost. One of the girls I work with even came up to me to see if I was okay. It’s not that I’m not okay, but I’ve been thinking lately about all the events that have happened in the past year and I just don’t understand why or how or what made...
I called 911 for the first time today.
I was so nervous! I knew the girl was going to be okay but I was shaking when I called. It happened while I was at work, pretty sure it was due to dehydration, but it was scary because I’ve seen it happen but I’ve never been the first one there who had to respond. Beside that, today was SUCH a good day.
Not Disney related at all, but I am completely and...
And the fact that it came out 15 years ago today blows my mind. It’s so weird to think that it was that long ago! I remember the first time I read Harry Potter, and going to all the book releases at Barnes and Noble at Midnight in costume with the wristbands waiting for your turn with all the countdowns and- okay time to buy Harry Potter for my kindle so I can bring it all to work. Now I...
mgmpluto asked: as an "old skool" CM... what a wonderful, positive blog to read! Thanks for the re-charge of pixie dust! Keep making the magic! :)
I started my trainer shadowing!
I can’t wait to be on my own, I loved it!
Bahaha new icon!
Let’s just said I had fun with photoshop! What do you guys think? Silly?
Anonymous asked: how do you get pictures of yourself at work? (you posing with a photopass camera) do you just ask a coworker or someone else to take a picture of you and then send it to you?
Disney Memory 0.3
This one actually occurred while I was visiting the park as a guest, not working! But it happened right as I started working at Fairytale Garden with Rapunzel and Flynn. Flynn and Rapunzel used to come out to dance with all of their friends before meeting them. When the last day of the dance was announced, my friend and coworker, Ethan, and I decided that we would be present for it! Since...
Tips for Photopass at Walt Disney World:
Photopass (know as Disney Photo Imaging to Cast Members) is a no obligation service at the Walt Disney World Resort that enables you to take photos at Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon for free. The best thing about these photographers is that they are non-commissioned, non-quota based which means you get to approach them for a photo-...
emilyslittlesecret asked: You're a CP!? That's so aweeesomme! I would love to do it! probably in the Spring 2014 though :P But I would love to go to the character performer auditionss!! :))
Anonymous asked: I dunno if you'll actually see this before my interview BUT... haha I'll try. I'm currently a CM, and I've got an interview with Universal on Wenseday- if I mention I'm with Disney does that bother them? I doubt they're gonna mind, and would probably like the theme park experience, but my friend is all "NOO they're mortal enemies!" :P
A basic guide to vacationing at Walt Disney World →
My friend Tariq wrote an article for this website with some basic information on taking a vacation when you visit the Happiest Place on Earth. If you need any tips, here they are! There are also lots of feedback from people in the comments with more information as well. Tariq was a friend of mine during my College Program who hung out with the mice a lot. Enjoy!
It has been raining for almost 2 days straight...
Yesterday was dreadful, usually I love the rain, and it reminded me so much of home, but it was my first day of training and we couldn’t do anything! I felt so bad for the girls we were training. On top of that, today is my day off and I’m not sure I want to go around running errands while it monsoons outside. How was everyone’s weekend?
Going to a comic book party tomorrow night!
What do you guys think (I have to dress up!): Poison Ivy, Zatanna, or someone else?
Disney Memory 0.2
I’ve met so many people from all over the world while working for Disney, and the best guests are the ones I actually get to talk to. One day, a guest saw my name tag with the city, “Bothell, WA” on it. It’s a pretty small city outside of Seattle, and not only did she recognize but her mom lived there. ON THE SAME ROAD AS ME. Working with this company, if it’s...

Random Disney Memory 0.1
I figured I needed to start remembering all the good moments I’ve had working at Disney, so I’m going to start putting them here instead of in my planner. I was working with Rapunzel and Flynn one day, and before they came out, we had a dance celebration. This little boy got so shy that he hid around the corner by the wall while everyone around the table joined hands. I went up and...
Things I miss:
Knowing that every Friday & Tuesday night was dedicated to dancing Making wedding invitations at work while it was pouring rain outside The rain All of Seattle and Bothell My family, so much My animals My best friend And some of my okay friends (haha) Seasons Cold weather Peacoats Wearing jeans and not sweating Mountains
Next week I start training!
Well, shadowing at least. My schedule is actually pretty decent next week! It’s Shadowing, Support, West, Pirates League, and Rover into Main Street. I don’t like the Main Street part only because it means I have to bring both costumes. Guh. But oh well! At least I have almost 50 hours for the week!
I'm getting a tattoo.
I’m trying to figure out my Harry Potter tattoo and maybe even a way to incorporate Disney into it as well. BAH. Also it will not stop storming in Florida this week, it has been crazy ridiculous.
Finally finished season four of Trueblood.
And the title literally has NOTHING to do with this post. I can’t believe the amount of fake people I have seen since I moved down here. People pretending to like certain things, which I know everyone does, but some people are just straight ridiculous. I am just so glad that I got lucky enough to meet a few sane people while living down here. Also I’m making some progress on my...
Friday I become an "Official" Disney Trainer!
I’m just really excited to get my pin! That being said, who is doing Photopass for their DCP? Or just in general?
Andrea's to do list:
Make more money. Fuuu. Finish True Blood Season 4 Get toned. C’mon girl, stop it with the soda! Fix the AC in my car. Order my book for school, yeahhh Business 101! Do laundry. Oh my dear god do laundry. (our dryer is broken) Save up for either: a dog, a laptop, new camera stuff, teeth whitening, or just to move home. Go to Disney so I can take pictures of my friends. Lacking that...

Unrelated post about Lost.
I feel like most people didn’t like the ending because they didn’t understand the ending. Like everyone thinks it means they were dead the whole time BUT THAT’S NOT IT AT ALL. Weirdos. In other news, today is my day off! Day. I decided to pick up a shift tomorrow. Bad decision.
Stuck on Anniversary Ideas!
Bah! Me and Steve have been debating what to do for our one year. Not that we need to do a huge celebration, but we want to do something for it. I know the Star Wars Celebration is the weekend after so I was thinking of getting him a 4-day pass because it’s only $135, and for an event that’s not too bad! Him and his best friend really want to go. Or we could go to Discovery...
Going to paint some more! Any ideas?!
I’m thinking some stuff from Star Wars, Disney, Anastasia, and Harry Potter. :)
