Cast Wellness Walk

Disney has an amazing health and wellness program, and each year they host a Wellness Walk for Cast Members! This is simply a fun walk through the park to encourage everyone to exercise and stay healthy! This year, the walk was through the World Showcase in Epcot, and themed to Leap Day! The walk was before the park opened so we had to be there at 6:30 AM, but it was so much fun and definitely worth it! It was a great way to start the day!

Professional Internship Networking Event

Tonight, Disney Internships hosted a networking event for all of the Spring Professional Interns. It was located at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. The event started off with a speaker who gave some advice about how to make the most of our internship experience. Then, we rotated throughout tables and got a chance to talk with some of the other interns. It was neat to hear about other people's experiences. I'm very close with the other sales and services interns that work with me, but at this event I got to talk with interns in areas such as engineering, animal programs, and operations. It definitely gave me the opportunity to learn about other areas of the company and see what other interns are experiencing in their roles. Overall, it was a great chance to network with fellow interns!

Park Venue Tours

Today was one of my favorite days of my internship so far! We got to tour all of the convention and event venues at the theme parks! We started off at Epcot, then went over to Animal Kingdom, and ended the day at Hollywood Studios. The venues include events such as fireworks viewing spaces, weddings, dinners, presentations, and park or area buyouts. We also got to tour some of the executive and corporate lounges at different attractions. It was so neat to see all of these exclusive places and learn how they turn different spaces into venues. I loved learning more about how we operate events on every type of scale, and seeing how visions are brought to life. It definitely gave me a better understanding of the process that Park Event Operations undergoes! Events play such a large role within conventions, and no one executes events better than Disney does!

Sorry for a lack of pictures with this post, but I was unable to take any while on the tour!
