Once we had waited a bit longer, we were checked in and given our Disney ID! Hallelujah! You are then brought to a classroom where you sit at a table with four other people and at one point I even became our Team Leader (pretty spiffy, huh?). I can’t talk about too much that we did here, but I will tell you that part of it is informational (safety, ethics codes, company guidelines, etc.) and kind of dull, but the rest is amazing! I know some people don’t like Traditions, but I loved it. A few tips: make sure you wear good walking shoes and participate in class. Near the end, our name badges were delivered by a very special guest!! All in all I’d say Traditions is definitely something to look forward to.
My dream of becoming a Disney Cast Member has finally come true. A pretty exciting first day of work if you ask me.
Once the class ended I caught a bus back to Chatham, which arrived around 7:00. I ate a quick dinner of Kraft mac and cheese, then went to the Magic Kingdom with a couple of my roommates. I also met up with another girl that I met at Traditions after Wishes. We only had time to ride a few attractions (Barnstomer, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Big Thunder Mountain), but had a fantastic time nonetheless! It was a great feeling to enter the Magic Kingdom as a Cast Member for the first time. Today I’m going to go to Hollywood Studios with one of my roommates, then wake up extra early tomorrow for training, which starts at 7:15. So pumped.
Hope you all have a very magical day!
