I will be keeping a diary/blog of my time in Florida on the Disney International College Program and the run up/ preparation to what will be the best summer ever! I'll try to update it as much as I can and post as many photo's when I'm there :) So here it goes...
On 29th November 2011, after a few nervous weeks, I received the E-mail offering me a place on Disney's Summer Work Experience 2012! I don't think I have ever been more excited, I really couldn't believe it! The E-mail explained that my role in the show would be in merchandise and that I would be starting on 5th June 2012 and I replied straight away to accept the offer. My family were just as excited as I was when I told them the news and they bought me the Now That's What I Call Disney! album that I have listened to 1000 times already! I couldn't wait to tell everyone and it is pretty much all I talk about now!
After accepting my place on the Disney ICP, the next step towards working at Disney was to fill in the CRB form which was simple enough. Then I started to look at flights and decided to get a direct flight from Manchester to Orlando so I didn't have the hassle of stopovers and changing flights. On 2nd January 2012 I booked my flights leaving from Manchester at 11.00 on 5th of June with Virgin (I'll get a cool little TV on the back of the seat!) and have booked my return flight a couple of weeks after my last day with Disney so I can either travel or have an extra holiday in Florida!
The next step is to book my Visa appointment at the US Embassy in London, but I can't do that until I have received my Disney information pack which should arrive sometime in February. So until then all I can do is get even more excited and count down the days!
126 days to go!!
