With a little help from mom and dad, we got everything put away and the apartment cleaned and decorated the first week we were here.

They inspect the apartment every 4-6 weeks for violations (like candles, pets, etc.). There is a notice board of upcoming apartment building inspections out by the check-in point for the complex.

More photos of our room can be found here.

We like our apartment a lot!

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.

My Schedule – Planning My Days

My Schedule - Planning My Days

We know our work schedules 2 weeks out.

On any off days, if there are open shifts available, we can sign up for them. It’s an opportunity to work in other Parks and wear other costumes. 🙂

My First Fanatic Card!

My First Fanatic Card!

My work is really good at recognizing when cast members do something well! When they see things such as good interactions with guests or using the themed greeting for our location, they’ll give us small cards called Mater cards. Once you get three of them, you get this big Fanatic card! You really want to get a Fanatic card because they go on your permanent Disney record! 🙂

I’ve been here for almost exactly one month and I’ve already received three!
