Best costume went to a toddler dressed as Pope Francis, right down to the pope’s traditional red shoes (which the pope refuses to wear).  The toddler was trick-or-treating in a mini white popemobile.

Obama and his wife, Michelle, appeared as themselves and handed out White House Halloween Cookies, along treat bags filled with M&Ms, fruit bars, kettle corn, candies and baseball cards featuring their dogs, Bo and Sunny.

Next year will be the Obama’s final Halloween celebration at the White House.

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

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.
