Team Mickey crew – it was great working with you all!

To commemorate the closing of Team Mickey, DTD Zone 1 Cast Members were invited to a private party (invitation only).

We had heard that the Team Mickey managers and some special Disney characters would be there, but had no idea that several Disney VPs were coming to the party too and would be talking to us.

Disney provided us with lunch/cupcakes, and photo ops with Mickey and Minnie. It was a fun party! I’m glad I could make it. (I scored a photo of Mickey in yet another costume!)

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 in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.

  1. It’s so great they did that for you guys. When the constructions walls finally went up it seemed a bit anticlimactic but I didn’t know about this. Having worked on Co-Op, I think it is going to be a really cool change but I’m glad Team Mickey still got a send off. Thanks for sharing.
