Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort
Merchandise Cast Member
August 2008 — January 2009
I successfully completed the College Program Internship during my second year of college, working full time (and often overtime) to satisfy requirements for graduation. While my technical job title would lead some to believe that I rang people up behind a cash register - which I often did - but it was about much more than that at the Magic Kingdom. It was about making dreams come true and anticipating needs that most didn't know they had! I replaced dropped ice cream, created 'magical moments' for families in need, and put an extra special touch on each guests' stay! WDW empowers their Cast Members (not employees!) to do whatever it takes to make this experience unforgettable - and that is one of the lessons that I have taken from this internship and applied into every job I have had since.
