Welcome to Our Family

Well, I didn’t get a chance to really post much when I got in last night due to the time. For those that haven’t tuned in for a while, I have been working as a Seasonal Cast Member (CT) at the Emporium in the Magic Kingdom. After waiting a while, I have finally gotten a Full-Time (FT) role with the company and with it, a transfer to Main Entrance at Magic Kingdom where I will be working in Strollers, Newsstand, Station Break and Package-Pickup (in time). Yesterday (3/13) I had my one day of training and went through the review of registers (The Emporium had me in a support role and I hadn’t really been on a register since December), learning how to drive an ECV, clean and stack strollers, and be the information point for the front of the park. I know it isn’t the place most people would pick but, I think it will be fun. The management team so far and the Cast have been nothing short of welcoming and willing to help me every step of the way. For those that have seen ‘Brother Bear’, think of the song “Welcome” (Welcome to our family time. Welcome to our happy to be time. This is our festival, you know and best of all we’re here to share it all). I can’t wait to see where this takes me. I have never had a team that has welcomed me so much as I saw yesterday.

Today will be my first ‘real’ day on my own up there but I can’t wait. I know that I will miss the friends and family I have in the Emporium but I will be making a new set of friends and family up at Main Entrance and who knows, I may even be auditioning for a role in Guest Relations this summer. Until then, I look forward to spending the next part of my career at Main entrance Merchandise and kicking off the Happiest Homecoming celebrating 50 years of Disney Themeparks. Look for more information to come later about the Happiest Celebration on Earth. For all that come to the Magic Kingdom, I will be on evening shifts and as of now, I have a Thursday/Friday day-off schedule. I couldn’t be happier with where I work and what I do. Thanks to all those that have supported me this far. Hope to see you real soon!
