Totally Random Thursday: The Depths of MK Strollers

Forget Throwback Thursday, this is the random, thrown together, off-topic-unless-that-topic-is-Disney, thoughts that were running through my head at work today.

A) All of my friends in this photo are amazing. B) Don't we all look dapper?
C) Everyone reading this post should come to Dapper Day this year!
Today, I spent my morning working at Magic Kingdom strollers. Which meant that 4.5 of my 6 hour shift was spent under the train station cleaning strollers. Rubbing them down. Each. And. Every. One. I have a very intimate knowledge of strollers now. :) Don't get me wrong, it was a wonderful morning, even though most of it was under the Walt Disney World Railroad. The huge room with rows and rows of strollers would shake like the thunder from the Apocalypse every time the steam train ran overhead. This being Florida, I simply thought it was a major thunderstorm until I realized that a monster is racing across.

Probably one of my favorite selfies. The photographers had our camera and we all
decided to jump in for a picture. If you CM's ever see this, you are awesome!

Tuesday's Tips: Weather

Anyone who has ever been to Central Florida for an extended period of time, or even just a few days, knows that the weather here is insane. Clinically crazy. Seriously, a straight jacket for this weather wouldn't be unprecedented. And with summer beginning, things are about to heat up. But, don't let the crazy storms and terrible heat ruin your Disney vacation! You've planned for months and spent hundreds of dollars. Don't let a little icky thing like lightening storms mess up your dream trip. Here are a few tips for battling the weather :)

I'm back!

Okay, so I know that I have pretty much failed at keeping up my blog these past few months. I am so sorry my dear friends! Life just gets hectic :) But guess what? It's the days of lemonade and pool times, flip flops and shorts(okay, that's pretty much all year in Florida), but for me, summer means keeping up with my blog again! Now that I have publicly declared it, that means I actually have to do it, right? :) Anyway, I have a few really good posts I'm working on, so hopefully we can all get our Disney fixes soon. In the meantime, here's a really cool interview my alma mater did with me about Disney :) In the words of our most favorite mouse, see ya real soon!

Lizzie and Disney

Oh you know, those days when I'm the only person at my favorite castle :)

Tuesday's Tips: Decorating Magic Bands

You know that moment: the white box, roughly shoebox size, lands on your doorstep. The excitement begins to build, you lift off the cover with Mrs. Incredible on it, and inside, there they are. The exact colors you chose, sitting curled up like a cat in the sun, ready to be played with. Yes, there is nothing nearly as fun as walking into the Magic Kingdom, but decorating your Magic Band can begin the fun at home.

When Guests Are Awesome

Today, I got the coolest thing in the world: an Excellence Dinosaur. Thank you, kind guest, who gave me this tiny pet :) The guest told me that the Excellence Dinosaur was a thank you for my kind and happy attitude. Sometimes, the days are long and it gets rough, but then you have amazing people like these guests who make your day :) Disney truly is magical.

Looking Back...

I can't believe I am writing this post. I can't believe my College Program journey is at a close. They say all good things come to an end, but so do all the messy, ugly, stressful, beautiful, amazing, and incredible things too. I have reached the end of my seven months as a Disney intern. I can't believe it. I truly can't believe it.
I don't know what I would do without these girls in my life. 
Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere. I will still be here, at Disney, in Orlando, writing this blog, updating everyone on life at Disney. I still hope you will be joining me for my next adventures in the World! But this post isn't so much about the future, it is about the past, and about what the last seven months have taught me. All the ups and downs, the muck and the beauty. It wasn't easy, but I wouldn't change it for the world.

Tuesday's Tips: Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party

"It's the most wonderful time of the year..." Christmas carols are ringing, cookies are baking, and snow is lightly falling. Which sounds wonderful, except that it's November(isn't it too early to be celebrating Christmas?) we live in Central Florida(so, no real snow. Ever.), and it is too hot to be baking cookies(it was 85 yesterday). It all only means one thing: Christmas has come to the Walt Disney World Resort! And with Christmas comes one of the best nights of the year. Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party! 

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas.... 
Walt Disney World does two hard ticket events every year. One is the Halloween party, Mickey's Not So Scary. We had a fabulous time at that one last September, so naturally, when November came, and the temperatures dropped from 95 to 80, it was obviously time to celebrate Christmas! We attended Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party last Thursday, and it was a blast! Here is an overview of our experiences :)
