Tuesday's Tips: Disneyland on a Budget #1

Today's Tip: How To Enjoy Disney Charm Without Monetary Harm #1 

I love Disneyland. There are few places I love more than Disneyland. Unfortunately  I can't afford to go to Disneyland all the time like I used too. Therefore, I have come up with a list of a few ways to get in the Disney spirit without having to enter the parks. Here is the first installment.

1) See the Fireworks 

It is possible to experience the magic of Disneyland Fireworks without a main entrance pass. There are several good locations to catch the beautiful display. My personal favorite is the Rotunda between Disneyland and California Adventure.

Magical Mondays

The sky exploded in color. I was showered by pink diamonds, blue sparkles, and green jewels. The world was a cascade of color. I was wrapped in the shining melodies, When you wish upon a star.... A huge smile of my face, I looked around at my fellow guests, the pink glow from the castle reflected in our faces. I could have been five-years-old again and walking down Main Street U.S.A for the first time. My heart was full of magic.

The Disney College Program: Applying

There were few things that terrified me as much as applying for the Disney College Program. The time my plane got hit by lightning or when I missed my train and was almost forever stuck in Switzerland might be close. But I don't know if my heart has ever pounded as much as when I hit that submit button.

I know, I might be a bit dramatic. But applying for Disney is something I have dreamed about since I was a baby. No joke, cross my heart, dare-to-die-should-I-ever-tell-a-lie. So the moment my Web Based Interview link popped up, I was freaking out. This was it. This was the moment.

Of course, I said yes! 

I just love these guys. They really are a hoot! 

What are some of your favorite character interactions?

A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes

I literally cannot believe this moment has come. In just a few short weeks I begin my journey as a Cast Member on the Disney College Program! I have dreamed of this moment since I was a toddler. Disney is truly The Happiest Place on Earth. I can't wait to begin creating magic for guests, putting smiles on children's faces, and fostering joy. What better job exists?

A little about me: I am a born-and-bred Disney fanatic. I dare you to find someone who can sing more Disney songs or answer more Disney trivia questions. My favorite game as a child was "Guess That Disney Character." This blog is going to be a journey through my life as a Cast Member, along with several insider tips about planning the perfect Disney vacation. Come along for the ride! Oh, and have a magical day!
