Dreams Do Come True!

Guess what everyone . . . After all of these months of anxiously preparing, planning and dreaming, I finally received my acceptance email! I am accepted to the Disney College Program at Walt Disney World for Fall 2014. I will be in merchandise, and I am obviously more excited than I can even describe. It still hasn’t quite sunk in that I am going to be out there in Lake Buena Vista, FL, living my dream at Disney World. This is everything I could have wanted, and I am feeling so blessed, happy and lucky! This means I get to continue blogging about my experience! Although, I won’t have much updates until a lot closer to my departure date! Hopefully following this blog will be helpful for someone some day, and inspire more people to work for their dreams!


Well . . .

It appears that acceptances have started coming out! As soon as I found out, I started crying, got incredibly anxious, freaked out, filled with excitement and nerves, and basically became one emotional ball of fury. I can’t believe I could find out the decision soon that may make or break my dream. I have my eyes on the prize though . . . I am going to Disney World. I am just waiting on that fateful email now.

Progress Update!

Well folks, here I am, patiently (ok not really, I am checking my dashboard every 15 mins) waiting, praying for acceptances to come out soon, and that one of them is for me. My phone interview was on Thursday morning, and I have no idea how to feel about it! Of course after the fact I thought of things I could have said that were WAY better, but hey, I spent so long preparing for the interview, that I would hope it came across while I was talking!


Look for an update soon! Please pray with me that I will get to continue to post about DCP, and hopefully it is about my adventure!




After months of preparing, and the agony of rapid heart beat while taking the Web-Based Interview, I have passed it! I only need to do the phone interview, and pray that Disney sees that I am a great fit for them! I am so excited for all of the opportunity I am hoping to be given. Be on the look out for good news!

The Journey has Begun!

WOW I can’t even express the wave of excitement and many other emotions overcoming me. I have finally just applied, and I can say without a doubt, I have never wanted anything as much as I want this opportunity. 


The journey actually begun long ago, when my love of Disney began, and I never knew the possibilities that could come from it. Let’s hope I get to where I want to be!


I will be posting as I find out more information, but for now, I need to patiently wait for my web-based interview. Wish me luck everyone, and for those of you out there who also applied, best of luck to you as well. We may be fellow CP’s some day. 


I think I have already used this one, but it is perfectly fitting right now

The application is due out ANY DAY now, and I am clearly beyond excited. I continue to follow blogs, videos and instagram accounts just to get as much information as I possibly can, and I am pumped! This is the opportunity I have been waiting for, and I am just so happy that I realized this is what I want to do, and this is the first step in doing it. This is the path I know I was meant to take, and I can’t wait for the networking, the learning, and most of all, the experience that this will bring. I know I am not in yet, but I am extremely determined to do everything that I need to do in order to make it. Keep on the look out, because Disney World, I am coming for you!

it’s 2014 after all…

I may have taken a little help on the title from that can’t-get-out-of-your-head song we all love, or love to hate, it’s a small world! But, that’s ok, because the whole point of Disney is to inspire imagination and magic in the world. Or at least for me, into 2014. I am beyond excited that it is now 2014. This means a couple of big things are coming up for me, but most importantly, it means I get to apply for the Fall 2014 Disney College Program! Even better, I already get to finally apply, NEXT MONTH! My fingers are of course crossed that it goes well, and I get to go, but until then, I am going to keep up the enthusiasm as I go back to my constant research on everything I can find about the program. All the stories I watch and hear, and all the information I am finding, I feel is really going to help me- So I think I am going to go back to doing that now!

Where has the time gone??!

I just realized I haven’t posted on here in months! Between school and work, I have been so busy and forgot. The good news, however, is that I am now less than 2 months away from being able to apply to the program. I am beyond excited as I follow the Facebook page, and see all the cool things that current participants are doing. In the mean time, I will keep dreaming, and doing whatever it takes to get to Disney World!


PS- I have taken a seasonal job at the Disney Store to get a little bit of Disney fix. (:

Just checking in!

Well about one week down, and way too many more left until I can apply! I was doing some reading about different people’s experiences in the college program, and stumbled upon this little gem:  http://disneyadventureblog.wordpress.com/2013/03/16/the-top-20-people-youll-meet-in-your-college-program/. “The Top 20 People You’ll Meet in Your College Program” was a very comical little post, I must say I have already figured out where I fall in that list of 20, and I am excited to meet some of these people- mostly the princesses, because I imagine it must be true to a tee!

Guess what today is!

Well, today is Thursday, Aug. 8. It’s really nothing special. But- it is the day before the D23 Expo! The Expo is taking place this year on Aug. 9-11 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Unfortunately for me, I am unable to go, but I will be taking a close look at this blog: http://www.insidethemagic.net/2013/08/live-blog-2013-d23-expo-coverage-of-all-things-disney-from-the-anaheim-convention-center-near-disneyland/ so I can keep on top of what’s going on. For those of you out there who are going, have fun! I wish I could be there, too!
