It's Almost Time...!

Well it's almost time for my Disney College Program experience to begin! Check-in is on Monday, August 23, so I have two full days left in Michigan before I hit the road to Florida. My mom and I will be leaving early Saturday morning. We'll drive about 12 hours (probably to Atlanta, Georgia) and rest for the night. Then we'll get up early on Sunday morning and make the rest of the drive to the Orlando area.

We'll check in to our hotel Sunday afternoon, and then relax at Downtown Disney for the evening. My friend from elementary school, Hilary, has already started her program, so I'll probably meet her for dinner Sunday evening. It will be nice to catch up and hear about her first week experience.

It's exciting to think that in less than a week I will be living and working at Walt Disney World! I'm definitely excited about learning where I will be working. For the living situation, I found a great roommate through Facebook groups. We have a lot in common and it seems like we'll get along quite well. We'll probably not even see each other that much with our varying (and busy) work schedules.

There are so many things I can not wait to do while on the College Program! My "bucket list" keeps getting longer and longer, but here are a few things I hope to see/do while in Florida for the next four months:

  • Visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter
  • See Cirque du Soleil - La Nouba at Downtown Disney
  • Ride the "Characters in Flight" Hot Air Balloon at Downtown Disney
  • Go to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party
  • Go to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party
  • See Night of Joy
  • See the Osbourne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at DHS
  • Meet Lou Mongello at a WDW Radio Meet of the Month
  • Ride Star Tours before it closes
  • Go to a D23 member "Tweet Meet" 
Now I just need to finish packing, say goodbye to friends and family, and it's off to Walt Disney World! Let the fun begin!
