I want to introduce Christy to everyone!  She will be guest posting on here and comes to us with a TON of Disney knowledge!  Below she wrote why she is qualified to blog for us about Disney.  I think you will agree she is more than qualified!  I’m very excited to add her to the Your Magical Vacation team!  So please say hi and give her a big welcome!

 

My name is Christy, and I am a Disney Parks-aholic.  I was indoctrinated at a young age.  Luckily for me, my aunt and uncle with whom I have always been very close, have always lived about five minutes from the World.  We visited them every year, and each time, we always had a WDW trip planned.  When I was in college, I remember it like it was yesterday, I walked up to one of the buildings and taped to the door was a flyer advertising a recruiting information session for the WDW College Program.  I had no idea this program existed!  This was my chance, and add in the fact that I was getting a little disillusioned with school; this was perfect if it worked out…  I interviewed the next day, and within a month I received my acceptance letter to the WDWCP as an attractions hostess.  I worked for that semester at the Disney MGM Studios (Hollywood Studios) and it was an adventure of a lifetime.  Living, working, and studying at the “Mouse” was all it was cracked up to be, and more.  I still have worldwide friends from that time, which is over 15 years ago, and two of my roommates I am in touch with regularly and see as often as possible.  I stayed on, as so many of us do, and lived with my relatives nearby and transferred to UCF to continue my studies.  I then got wind of a program similar to the WDWCP, but this was at Disneyland Paris.  After two interviews where I claimed my French was passable (never spoke a word before), I was on my way to France for a 6 month employment contract with Disneyland Paris.  It was amazing, and I also made wonderful, lifelong friends who I still speak to on a daily basis.  I was able to travel throughout Europe and work and live in an international environment that I truly enjoy.  Nine years later, I was back at WDW, this time working at the Wilderness Lodge Resort in one of the most popular restaurants on Disney property:  Whispering Canyon Café.  I was able to work there as a part-time employee for 2 years and then as a seasonal employee for 2 years while living in Maryland.  My 3-year-old son had his first trip at 4 months, and not to be outdone, my newborn son will be on the Disney Wonder at 5 months old.  I am the personification of a Disney Parks freak!
