Cinderella Castle Hub Construction is Almost Complete!

The Cinderella Castle

The Cinderella Castle (some construction off to the left).

I got to spend a whole day at the Magic Kingdom last week.

The Hub area around the Cinderella Castle is still under construction undergoing a huge expansion project, but after almost a year of work, it’s almost done!

The first set of two turrets – out of four planned – were unveiled this week. They house state-of-the-art HD show production equipment, controlling the sound and special effects for the shows in front of the castle.

There will be four castle turrets when it's all done.

Two Girls

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale
by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

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 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.
