It’s been almost a year since my last post. You’re probably wondering what happened to me, what I did during my second program and what happened afterward. Surprise! I didn’t do my second program in quick service! Surprise! I’m still in Florida! Surprise! I’m not a CP anymore! So much has happened and I’m loving every minute of it!
What about quick service?
I filled out all the appropriate paperwork for my food allergies quickly after receiving my offer. After many conversations with health services they assured me that I would be placed somewhere I could safely work without an allergic reaction. When I arrived I was placed at Backlot Express in Hollywood Studios. After 3 days of training I was having such bad reactions that I had to be transferred.
Life at ESPN
After my allergic reaction I was transferred to operations at ESPN Wide World of Sports (technically attractions). I got to work parking, touchpoints, ushering, and courtesy carts at the complex. I also was deployed to Rivers of Light in Animal Kingdom a lot! I also picked up parking at Disney Springs and Typhoon Lagoon! The best part was all the wonderful people I got to meet! It wasn’t the most fun place to work, but the amazing friends made it all worth it! I didn’t experience that with my coworkers during my first program because there were only 5 CPs at my location.
I tried to extend my program but it was denied. I knew I wasn’t ready to leave so I put in some custodial and attractions transfers for part time and full time and one was approved! I accepted a part time transfer to Hollywood Studios custodial in May. I’ve been in custodial for 7 months now! As a part timer I’ve worked custodial everywhere at Studios, as well as in Disney Springs a couple times. I’ve also gotten to work the Halloween and Christmas parties handing out treats and wristbands. Of course I still pick up at ESPN occasionally!
Hopefully soon I’ll post more about parks custodial, transferring to part time, ESPN, and EHH!
