Park Buyout Shadow
Tonight, I had the opportunity to shadow a park buyout at the Magic Kingdom with some of my fellow Sales and Services interns! This event was celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Disney Vacation Club! It was an amazing experience to learn about event planning from a Park Operations perspective. We had the chance to walk through the event as we learned about all of the departments that had a role in planning and executing the event. We talked about the event check-in, the exclusive entertainment offerings and available attractions, and the food and beverage operations. Getting to witness this event first-hand allowed me to gain a better understanding of how many teams it takes to successfully manage a park buyout event. Disney is known for producing incredibly unique and well-run events, and this was no exception! I'm so glad that I was able to experience this event shadow!
