One of my Disney Bucket List items was to go and roast marshmallows at the Wilderness Lodge this summer.
Every night at sundown, the resort offers marshmallows to guests to roast.
This is a great, family-friendly event. They provide the marshmallows and the sticks at no cost.
When you’re done using your stick, the CM breaks it up, and tosses it into the fire pit as more firewood!
Not gonna lie, I ate three marshmallows. They were SO good!!! Toasted just perfectly!
We sat around the fire pit watching the stars come out one by one.
Of course, we made a wish on the very first evening star we saw as every Disney fan knows: When you wish upon a star…your dreams come true! 🙂
I want to go with my DCP summer roommates next time. It would be such a great bonding experience to roast marshmallows together and then watch the Wishes fireworks over the Castle! 🙂
Lions and Tigers and Strollers, Oh My!
This is not Caroline’s first time in the Disney College Program. Along with her sister, she was previously accepted into the program a few years earlier. Back in Colorado, Caroline was wishing for a little more pixie dust to brighten up her life. On a whim, she decides to apply to the exclusive Disney Alumni Summer Program.
Now that she’s back, things get wild.
Wild, as in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where Caroline is assigned to work in Stroller Rental. While not the most glamorous position in the park, it’s often ground zero for humanity at its best and at its worst.
While Caroline makes many “Magical Moments” for deserving guests whose pixie dust has gone temporarily sideways, she also receives magical moments of her own through the friendships she makes, going to Disney cast member exclusive events, and all the spectacular dining opportunities at Disney World.
Caroline tells all – from the ins and outs of Disney’s secret training class called Traditions; to learning how to be a happy cast member during on-the-job training; to what it’s like to interact with fellow cast members and the guests who are ready to explore the most magical place on earth.
Join Caroline as she takes you on a wild ride through her adventures in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. But be careful, it’s a jungle out there!
