So you've been accepted and now you're thinking about where you'll live? Or maybe you're just really excited and thinking ahead. The first thing I want you to know is that roommates matter far more than which complex you end up in. That being said, first I will share a general overview of the complexes and then I'll compare them by price, transportation, and the people you commonly find in them.
I arrived almost 2 weeks ago, so I wanted to share an update on how things are going. The first week I didn't get to do much, I had a few general meetings about housing, being resort custodial, and paperwork. I had my first training class called Traditions, where I learned about the company. During that I received my name tag, the iconic sign of Disney cast member, and my card that gives me access to the parks.
The day after Traditions, Sunday, was my favorite day by far since I've been here! My new friends Robert and Sarah took me to Magic Kingdom for the first time, and we went to church that night. I had a great time finally riding attractions I've been avoiding my whole life. The day, and finally being in Magic Kingdom, was great fun, but by far the best part of the day was spending time in fellowship with these two wonderful people! I look forward to many more adventures with them!
A few other updates: I got my first choice apartment, a 6 person 3 bedroom in Chatham (although there are only 5 of us right now), which is the cheapest and closest to the buses. My roommates are nice but it's interesting because they all knew they were going to be roommates before arriving, so I was the random thrown in, so I'm kind of the outsider right now as I get to know them. I started working at my location yesterday (after 4 days of classroom type trainings) and it's going well, my coworkers are nice and spoil me a little bit. I'm excited to start working on my own in a week. All in all, everything is going well and I'm excited for the next 4 months.
