I worked last night on the final shift for the Team Mickey store.

At closing time – 11pm – the Cast Members all lined up with pom-poms and wished the final guests farewell with a Magical Moment good-bye.

Disney is hosting a party for Team Mickey Cast Members on Thursday afternoon, and I plan on going to it. (Photos of the Team Mickey Cast Party.)

Farewell Team Mickey!


Team Mickey, an athletic-gear and souvenir store at Downtown Disney, is closing in January 2014 in favor of Marketplace Co-Op, a store-within-a-store concept that’s set to open in late spring 2014, the company said Friday.

Once open, the Co-Op will feature six slots for shops featuring beauty and fashion accessories for women and girls, home products with a dash of Disney theming, vintage-inspired sports apparel plus D-Tech on Demand, a spot with personalized and customized electronic accessories.

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.
