First Week of PI

My first week of work was wonderful! I felt so welcomed by my team. It was a week full of training, meetings, tours, and meeting new people. The first day started off with tours of my cubicle, floor, and the building, as well as the building nearby that we frequent. We had a lunch with my whole team at Olivia's at Disney's Old Key West Resort, which was so much fun! Then, we took a tour of the convention hotels on Disney property. The rest of the mornings were spent in various training classes. This was when we learned how to use all of the programs for our role. The classes were so helpful in showing us how to best utilize them for our roles. I also loved these parts of the days because I got to become good friends with some of the other interns in the Sales and Services department! Even after just one week, I can already tell that this role is going to provide me with such amazing opportunities. I am so grateful for this chance to grow and learn in such a wonderful department! Here are a few pictures from my first week of my Professional Internship!
Ready for my first day!

Today I had my Traditions, which is the orientation class that every single Cast Member takes on their first day! Even though I had already done Traditions for my DCP, I was still incredibly excited for today! Traditions is such a special experience, and I was looking forward to seeing it from a slightly different perspective this time, having already worked for the company before. I continuously got chills and teared up throughout the many videos that are incorporated into the class, from hearing messages from Walt Disney and Bob Iger, to seeing clips of families enjoying the magic of Disney.
Excited for Traditions Round 2!

Yesterday afternoon, I had my Professional Internship check-in at the Casting Center! This process was very similar to when I went through it for my DCP, but just as exciting! I did my background check, paperwork, and received my Traditions schedule. I also received the information for my first day of work at the office on Monday. I was so happy to begin the first step in my PI journey!! 

So happy to return to this beautiful Casting Center!
Ready for my Professional Internship check-in!

My Apartment

I am officially all moved in to my new apartment! I am living in a beautiful complex in Celebration, FL, which is a town that Disney built, just south of Walt Disney World. It's only about 5-7 minutes from both Walt Disney World property and my office building! I am living with my friend Cynthia, who was a Vacation Planner with me and now works in a different sales department in the same office building that I will be in!

Here are some photos of our apartment!
