Showkeeping Parasol Parade at Grand Floridian

Showkeeping Parasol Parade at Grand Floridian
8am:  The GF Parasol Showkeeping Parade!

A Disney ‘Special Touch’ for Grand Floridian guests:
Early rising guests at the Grand Floridian can enjoy a cheery parade of over 50 parasol-toting housekeepers on Mondays and Fridays at 8am sharp.

The tradition began when the Grand first opened in 1988. The Housekeeping Team members gather at the marina and slowly stroll through the Victorian courtyard around the pool area. What a charming way to start the day!

It does look like a fun way to begin and to end the week!

We’ve stayed there and the Housekeeping Team works hard to make guests happy and keep the Grand spotless.

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

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.
