Living in Disney World

Living and working in Disney World is one of the most blissful and the most stressful things I think I've ever done. Now, don't get me wrong I don't actually live in Disney World, but I live close enough that I don't have to stress about getting to work on time (for the most part). It's one of the most magical places, that's for sure, and working here reminds me on a daily basis how blessed I am to be doing something that I like in a place that I love. 

Don't get me wrong, there are days that are hard, and there are days that are stressful, but the good days most definitely make up for the bad days. To see a little boy or girl get excited about something in our store, or even an adult to be thankful for the coffee that will help them get through the long day that is inevitably ahead, it's very humbling at all times. Every time that I see a family come in with a Make A Wish badge on, it breaks my heart just a little bit. And every time I see a family come in with a family reunion, or first visit button it makes me smile just a little bit harder. I work for Disney, but in a Starbucks, so the questions that I get on a daily basis can range anywhere from a typical Disney question to a Starbucks question that I've never heard before in my entire life. 

One of the things that I love most about working is that when I'm not working, I can go into the parks and just relax. I can go in for a few hours here, and a few hours there and really become familiar with the parks and the nooks and crannies that each park has. There have been days where I've just sat in the Hub of the Magic Kingdom and watched as the families go by, or on a bench in Italy and just watch everyone hustle around Epcot trying to make the most of Food and Wine as it goes by. Just one look at my instagram, you can tell that I really do love this place and the people that I've met because of it. 

I somehow wound up here after college, trying to delay working for the 'real world.' I finished my first College Program and headed off to Disneyland Resort to try my hand working out there. I came straight back (to be closer to family) after I finished my program out there, and wouldn't change it for anything in the entire world. If you ever have an opportunity to work for this company, even if it's just for an internship, I say do it. Because you learn more about yourself in two weeks here than you do in months/years anywhere else.
