Adventures in the Animal Kingdom

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!

Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.

Additionally, costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.

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 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. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.

CP Tip:  The party starts at 7pm, but Disney let’s guests wearing costumes in for the party starting at 4pm. (Normally, adult guests may not wear costumes in the parks.)  Come early and plan on staying until midnight!

Going all day:  Plan on going to the Magic Kingdom in the morning and storing your costume in the lockers near the entrance.  At 4pm, change into your costume and have your photo taken on Main Street before the crowds arrive at 7pm!

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.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP)

Going to the Halloween Party!

Going to the Halloween Party!

In case you’ve never attended MNSSHP before, the party is an after-hours, separate ticket Halloween celebration that features a lot of must-see Halloween-themed entertainment, such as the “Boo To You Parade,” “Happy HalloWishes” fireworks, tons of Disney characters in costumes – especially the villains! -, and much, much more.

The party also features trick-or-treating stations with free candy for kids of all ages – yes, this means that adults are welcome to participate!

MNSSHP is the only time that park guests of all ages are encouraged to dress up in costumes.  Last year, we saw whole families dressed in amazing homemade Disney costumes – going as the entire cast of ‘The Incredibles’, the entire cast of ‘The Little Mermaid’, more Disney princesses and villains than you could shake a stick at….just amazing costumes and make-up!

This year, MNSSHP features more trick-or-treat locations than ever before, with a total of 13 treat stops spread throughout the Magic Kingdom.  Over the next few weeks, cast members will hand out a total of 261 tons of candy!  That’s 522,000 lbs.!!

We love the Halloween lighting on Main Street!

Guests who exit the park after the 8:30 p.m. performance of the “Boo to You” parade are in for an additional treat – huge bins of candy filled to the brim for the guests who skipped the trick-or-treating stations or just need to top off their backpacks!

Candy, candy, and more candy!
