Mickey Mouse cut the red ribbon to officially open the store. Special giveaways, tastings and photo opportunities added to the excitement of the day.

******************************
Two GirlsWe 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 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.
