This is what happens when the prince of Sauid Arabia visits Disneyland…
I can’t even…
I heard some awesome stories about him from my Traditions leader. He gets Disney to bring out the most random characters.
I got into a debate with a kid on the CP bus because he was talking about the Saudi Prince and he goes, “He even got them to bring out Madame Butterfly!”
Me: Madame Butterfly…?
Him: (haughtily) Yeah. From A Bug’s Life.
Me: Her name is Gypsy. Madame Butterfly is an opera. (educate yourself.)
One time, when I was working the Merida meet’n’greet, I witnessed over 200 Brazilians in orange T-shirts running across the Tomorrowland bridge.
The Captain (manager) of the meet’n’greet immediately made a call to Space Mountain.
“They are coming.”
And all you could hear on the other end of the line was someone from Space Mountain saying, “SHIT!” and then a bunch of loud banging.
that’s an appropriate reaction to that
During my training at the Turkey Leg cart one of the CMs looked us straight in the eye and said,
“Beware of the Brazilians here. One time they came and asked for 200 turkey legs and 200 bottles of Coke. We can’t even fit that much here. The managers made them pay first and then come back in an hour so we could give them everything at once. Be prepared.”
Last year I posted these pictures from backstage at WDW Costuming individually, but thought it would be good to have them all in one post. Enjoy!
fun fact for culinary: if you’re wearing standard back of the house culinary costumes you can get them from any costuming department. however, if you are wearing costumes with your location’s logo (for example Ohana’s has their own costumes) you have to get them at their respectable costuming department.
One very late night after I finished my shift in Frontierland, my friend’s locker was broken into. We reported it to security and while we waited I had the wonderful pleasure of getting a special grand tour of Entertainment Costuming (which is no-go to outside Cast). I got to touch outfits, see accessories, peak at Halloween costumes, marvel at all of the shoes, and hear fun facts about all of them. It was one of the most magical backstage moments of my time as a Cast Member.
I just wish regular costuming had been as cool. I had way too many struggles finding pants that were long enough for me.
Take that leap of faith! Trust me; you will never regret it.
It will change your life, guaranteed.
Germany is Epcot home <3
Despite our love/hate relationship, I’m having some Frontierland feels. Get ready for the spam.
It’s Not Getting Better
Do you ever wake up and everything’s fine for a moment, but then you remember what’s going on in your life and it makes you wish you could forget again? Well, that was me on Wednesday, Oct 24, day two of my emergency trip home.
I had to call Deployment to call out personal again. It became my second time not going to work. My second point. It hurt so much because I had hoped to go my whole program with no points. I didn’t mention it before, but a few days before I got that horrible call that my cat was dying, I got an email about the Professional Internship I interviewed for.
Went on this for the first time at the very end of my program. It’s actually really fun!
“I’m sexy and I know it,” whispers every Disney cast member ever as they put on their costumes for work.
We rock the polyester mom pants.
We look good in vented Adventureland pajamas
