Today's role spotlight is a look into the life of an attractions host. Particiapants placed in attractions can be stationed at a ride area, as a park greeter (Read more about that here.), or as parade audience control. Attractions hosts work in all 4 parks as well as Disney Springs. Today's post features the experiences of 4 attractions hostesses: Megan worked Agent P's World Showcase Adventure, Sarah worked Peter Pan's Flight and It's a Small World, Molly worked Parade Audience Control on Main Street, and my sweet friend from my program, Amber-Lynn, worked Spaceship Earth.
Megan: Agent P's World Showcase Adventure (Epcot)
Program: Fall 2015
Other Locations: American Garden Theater
Role Description: I handed out phones to secret agents so they could save the world! I also park cleared at the end of the day to make sure there were no guests left in the park. At the American Garden Theater, I helped with making sure the food and wine performances went smoothly.
Training: I had a few days of on the job training and then an assessment
Hours: 30/week, 6 hour shifts with 2 15 minute breaks
Likes: I loved it! I really liked all of the guest interaction
Dislikes: Park clearing wasn't my favorite but I loved the role anyway!
Favorite Memory: My favorite stories all have to do with park clearing or New Years. I loved the crowd and doing crowd control, and many of my stories have to do with that. I have too many to pick just one!

Today marks one year since my first blog post on this blog (You can read it by clicking the link below). I had a few blogs before this one, but this is the only one that's grown and the only one I've really stuck with. Because of this blog, I've learned a lot about blogging, and that it's something I really love doing, it also relaxes me a lot. Looking back to my older blogs, my first posts on this blog, and mostly how much I've learned the last 5 months of blogging, there's a lot of things I wish I'd known since the beginning. I wanted to share those things with you today.
