Moving Out Week

Our The Commons ID and apartment keys.

Elly and I always have a hard time moving out of places.  Which is the worst since we move every 6-9 months to go to college/return home. It probably wouldn’t be a problem, except we are literally the worst collectors of stuff. 🙂

Here’s an example of some of our stuff:

Here is just 1/5th of Caroline’s personal pin collection from pin trading during the College Program!

I can’t say “no” to Disney merchandise!  I need to buy ALL THE THINGS!   We are incredibly thankful that both our parents came out to help us move out.  It was hard packing up our treasures.

We moved out in several stages over the course of four days.  We tried to sell some of our things on the Disney Trading Post Facebook group, but all the new DCP arrivals were coming in at least two weeks after we were leaving.

Breona and her roommate were very happy to not have to go grocery shopping for the next month! We gave them A LOT of food!

On the final night at our apartment when we were going to move all the way out, I called up my friend Breona at 10pm and literally gave her about $300 worth of food and apartment stuff!

We had to turn in our housing IDs and keys to security since it was so late (after 10pm) and the front office wasn’t open.

We piled ourselves into the car and went straight to the hotel.  It was a good thing Elly and I were flying home because there was definitely no room for us in the car with all our stuff!

Not even enough room to take a deep breath!

Very snug in the backseat!

We told Elly: “No slamming on the brakes or making fast turns!”

Btw, our hotel was completely crammed packed.  Dad looked around after midnight and said, “More purses, more shoes” (dad points to face), “not happy!!” Lol! 🙂

We had a suite at the Holiday inn Express and it was crammed FULL of our stuff.

Luckily, Dad is also a super collector of random things, so he is also very good at organizing and packing.  He dropped us off at the airport (after a mad dash to costuming at 6:30am) and then packed up all our stuff for the drive back to Colorado.

We are so glad that they were able to come and help us out.  Leaving Disney is so sad! 😦

We’ve written a book about our year working at Disney World in the Disney College Program: Two Girls and a Mouse Tale. It’s filled with advice about the DCP program and how to get the most out of your internship.
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and wrote about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney. We give advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship at Disney, 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.
