Party Tip: The MVMCP party starts at 7pm, but Disney let’s ticketed guests in for the party starting at 4pm. Plan on going to the Magic Kingdom early (park by 3:30pm) and don’t forget to wear your Christmas sweater!
Even if it’s warm during the day, it can get very chilly in the park after the sun goes down!!! Stash a jacket in a locker as you enter the park. You’ll need it by midnight!
Wondering about the crowds, especially in December??? Well, they are miserable the last 2 weeks in December, BUT wonderful the first two weeks in December!
The 2.5 weeks between Thanksgiving and December 15th is a relatively low crowd period at the Magic Kingdom and Disney World in general. Enjoy!
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 shiny, 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!
