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.

  3. Yes, some CMs got tickets for a special viewing area for the taping on December 7th. It will be crowded on Main Street and in front of the Castle, but the rest of MK will be fine. It’s a great way to see celebrities!!

  4. Hi! I love your blog! We are going to the Christmas parade taping next week and I wanted to see if y’all knew who the performers are going to be? And what time we should arrive? Any information would be great 🙂 Thanks

    The cast members that got tickets also got arrival times of anywhere between 7am – 10am depending on the date. Earlier is better, no later than 7:30am at the MK parking lot for a good spot. The crowds on Main Street can be 6-8 people deep all day long!! 😦

    We’re hearing rumors about Meghan Trainor (All about that Bass) and Ariana Grande performing as headliners this year. And Neil Patrick Harris as been at WDW all week, doing the Candlelight Processional at Epcot for a few days. He was a great MC! We loved seeing him last year!

    Hi! Are non-cast members able to get tickets for the taping to be in the reserved sections, or is it only for cast members? We are APs and I know we can go on the days of the taping, but would love to be in the premium sections and stay all day!

    • Yes, you’ll be able to get free FastPass+ tickets for reserved viewing for the Christmas Day Parade taping. The area all around Cinderella Castle (the Hub) has been remodeled and expanded into the Castle Gardens for better fireworks and parade viewing. Don’t forget to wear your Disney Christmas sweaters (or anything red); it greatly improves your chances of being on TV Christmas Day!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NZACC4Tbms
