Extending my Internship

I have been offered to extend my current internship in Guest Relations! I will be moving to Downtown Disney in January and staying there until June! I am very excited to start my new experience at DTD but also very sad to leave my Animal Kingdom family!

It was with careful consideration that I chose to accept this opportunity. As you recall I had planned to apply for a full time position and was hoping for a role in lodging. However at this time it makes more sense for me financially to extend my internship.

Downtown Disney is an area with a lot of shops and restaurants, an AMC movie theater, Splitsville (a bowling alley) and home to Cirque Du Soleil. Downtown Disney is going under an extensive remodel and will be transitioning into Disney Springs in the future.

This location will allow me to work the Marketplace Lobby, the Window location on the West Side as well as GRAPE (Guest Relations at Park Entry) for the Waterparks and the ESPN Sports Complex.

This location will also allow me to gain extensive knowledge on ticketing. As many people choose to take care of their ticketing issue at DTD because there is no admission cost to visit there. I am very excited to start this new adventure and I have heard great things about this location from other Cast Members.

Please Donate!

 It is very difficult to be far away from your family when something is wrong. I have never shared a lot of personal information on this blog. I have been told that others have found the info here helpful, and now I ask if you can please help me and my family.

My beautiful sister Kennedy is in need of a service dog because she suffers from seizures 3-5 times a day. She is so smart and has big dreams, having a service dog would allow her to attend college and make her dreams a reality. In high school, Kennedy was an Honor Student, involved in drama club productions and on the track team. However now she is unable to function in her daily life because of her seizures. 

A service dog can alert others to her seizures, retrieve a phone for help, retrieve medication, and lay beside her during a seizure to prevent injury. The dog can also help balance her during minor seizures and help her be more independent. 

We have started a fundraising site as these dogs are very expensive. Please consider donating anything if you can, every dollar counts. Even just a few dollars can move us closer to our goal.
