Look-out Mickey, here I come!!

Finally, I got the much awaited email from Disney that  I had been selected for the position I applied for in October and interviewed for in November.  I had received a couple of emails from them inquiring if I wanted to remain on the wait list. 

I have completed the background check and will be going to Traditions (Disney's indoctrination/orientation) on January 8, 2013.  Then I'll get my schedule and my costume for ticketing at the Wide World of Sports venue on Disney property. 

I am extremely excited.  Let me explain just a little bit.  In my other life, I was in employee development which is a fancy term for the training department of TN Environment and Conservation which housed State Parks in Tennessee.  As part of a training program for customer service we used a training program based on Disney's magical moments.  That was in the early 90's.  Ever since that time I have wanted to work for Disney to find out if what I had trained over 400 employees in was factual.  So I'll find out and I really don't think I'll be disappointed but I'll report later. 

I couldn't very well quit work and come to Disney so I put it on my bucket list and now I can mark 'er done!

Too soon for pictures of my costume but that will come even though it's pretty dull in comparison to some at the different parks.

Sounds like fun. We will be looking forward to your adventures at the Magic Kingdom. Will you be living at their RV park?

I'll be lucky enough to get first hand reports but I think others will be curious too. Maybe you will blog more with daily updates. It's really interesting to hear about the Disney life.

P.S. Sure wish you would consider turning off Comment Moderation.
