It is officially 10 little days away from my first day with the Walt Disney Company! I am so excited to start working for this company and so excited to be working at the Happiest Place on Earth! As most of you already know, I have accepted a position at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California because it’s close to home and personally, my favorite Disneyland park (though I haven’t been to Disneyland Paris or Shanghai yet, so that’s still up in the air!). I will be working the role of Front Desk at one of their hotels (TBD) which was my top choice considering
I my parents spent $$$$ on me pursuing a Business degree and a major in Hospitality Management . I am so excited to be joining the crazy, restless and rewarding hospitality industry.
Most of my friends know that Disney is a company I hold close to my heart because my dad has worked for the company for over 25+ years! He works for their Imagineer department and from what I can remember from Bring Your Child to Work Day (13 years ago?? I don’t know), he does a lot with the animatronics on rides and whatnot. So! I grew up being a little Disney princess, going to Disneyland whenever I got the chance and my boyfriend and I still go at least 5 times a year.
Anyway! This company is so, so special to me because of all the opportunities it has created for my father and in turn, my family, and I can only dream of becoming a permanent member of the Disney family. Everyone has to start somewhere and the Disney College Program will be my start. Can’t wait for January 15!!
