Long time no blog, friends. I just wanted to pop in and say how much I’m loving it here.
The moment I was able to go into the parks for the first time I honestly felt right at home. It was wonderful. Glorious. And extremely wet and cold–it was a dark and rainy night, but nothing was going to put a damper on my Disney spirit. My obnoxious yellow raincoat was just a punch-in-the-face to the gloomy weather.I was home. And now I feel like I’ve never left.
My friends (Tink, Donald, Goofy, Daisy, Minnie, Ariel, Anna, Elsa, and Mickey…all in one night!) welcomed me with open arms and sweet hugs. I did some of my favorite attractions with a minimal wait. I just stared at the Castle for what seemed like the longest and simultaneously shortest time.
It’s just so cool that I’m here. I’m actually here.
I’ve been having a wonderful time so far. I love my job, I love having Disney just minutes away, and I love all the people I’ve met. I just wanted to let you people in the blogosphere know that I’m loving it. Cue old McDonald’s commercial jingle.
It’s incredible that I’ve been away from Disney for almost two years but feel completely at home here–sometimes I go to the parks by myself, and it’s not awkward or uncomfortable. It’s enjoyable and natural–why not go experience Disney on your own, especially when your roommates or other friends are working? Disney is home, and exploring my home has become my favorite hobby.
Walt Disney World is such a wonderful place to be. I’m going to try to post more often, but for right now I’m going to continue acting like a complete newbie and spend each moment of my free time hanging out at “home.” I’ve got a ton of friends I’ve yet to visit (Mulan! Chip and Dale! Aurora! SO MANY!), a lot of food to be tasted, and a lot of attractions and shows to be enjoyed. I can’t wait to share as much as I can with every one of you.
I hope everyone has a magical day!
