let me begin by saying SORRY FOR SUCH AN OVERDUE END POST. I lost it the last month trying to do everything and anything I had time for besides work. But now that I have the serious Disney blues and post-dcp depression, I figured that writing my conclusion might make me feel a bit better (while listening to Disney Pandora). I’m just gunna talk about some final month events that I did then.
SO first- I passed my Disney Corporate Communications class. YES. I had the greatest table of classmates who were awesome people/friends. We celebrated our final class with Olive Garden and McDonald’s dipped cones. proof:
Another amazing day I had was A JAM PACKED DAY of MK with my bff (and MK expert) Troy. We got pixie dusted, went to Be Our Guest for my first time for lunch (incredible), saw the show at the castle, and then met up with Athena to meet some princesses and the magician Mickey (WHO TALKS). It was a perfect day besides a little rain. or alot.
Then towards the middle of May, my parents came to visit 🙂 We had a lot of fun in the parks and went to see Cirque Du Soleil, it was amazing.
The day before my parents left, there was a huge event for CP’s called Starlit Splash, where they open typhoon lagoon from 7-1am and have a huge party. It was awesome- we went swimming and danced and ate it was so crazy.
Obviously the weekend my parents left, me and friends found ourselves back at clearwater beach…
It was once again an amazing time. I miss it so much, and the sunsets were always flawless.
Then sometime that next week I ate a 30 something piece plate of sushi with my two best friends… so good. so full ugh.
That next Sunday we went to House of Blues as a last hurrah for some of the greatest people I had met who were going home within the next week. It was so much fun, I’m glad we went. Super sad to say bye to some of the people who made work a little less painful.
Next, me, Vaishali and Angie went to MIAMI. YES MIAMI BEACH. It was incredible and probably the best memory. Granted I completely sprained by ankle on the beach and had to get crutches, I made the best of it! Our hotel was literally across the street from the beach and we got to eat breakfast watching it. We may or may not have also stopped at the DASH store…
Another HUGE part of my final weeks was when my bff Ally came to visit me. It was unreal and an absolute teaser to being home soon. Her aunts took us to Universal Studios (my first time being there EVER). It was hands down one of the best times. I was super impressed with the park and couldn’t believe I was actually in Harry Potter world at one point and drinking butter beer (but secretly my favorite part was obviously Jurassic Park… HELL YEAH DINOS).
One of my last days off, before the homestretch 40 something hours in four days, I spent with my roommate and best friend V. We wore our graduation ears and took lots of pics in MK! It was so happy and sad at the same time. We ended our perfect day with some wishes 🙂
Another fabulous last-days-off was our downtown Orlando trip with some of my best friends! Lex, Herminio, Christopher, Josh and myself all went to Lake Eola. It was so pretty there! We went on a swan paddle boat out on the lake, walked like 2 miles to IHOP, AND may have possibly spent a good 45 minutes in the cities’ library…
It was a great adventure outside of the disney bubble!
My last actual days were spent with the greatest friends I could have asked for. One of my last nights we had a name tag party, Rosie’s grill caught on fire after my last clock out, I spent the day saying goodbyes on my last full day in Hollywood Studios at SRM and my last night was obviously in Magic Kingdom. I miss everyone so much and can’t believe that in a couple of weeks it would have been 2 months since I left! I am so thankful and grateful to have had the experience to live and work in the happiest place on earth and meet some of the best people that make it so wonderful. Like the boss always says, I’ll “see ya real soon” Disney! 🙂
