1 Year Since Walt Disney World

It is absolutely mental to think that it has been exactly ONE year since I landed in Orlando, Florida to begin my unforgettable six month adventure working for Walt Disney World. I’ve gushed endlessly about how amazing my time there was so I won’t say much more. But what I will do is share a few of my Disney World highlights with you, thanks to some help from my ‘appy mate Instagram. If you have any questions about the Disney College Program don’t hesitate to drop a comment down below or get in contact with me directly! I’d love to help! Warning: This may take a wee while to load! JANUARY Yup, exactly one year ago I landed in Orlando and hung out with Scar and the hyenas at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort! I stayed in one of the Little Mermaid Rooms. First night with all the Kiwi and Aussie roommates at our CP apartment in Chatham Square. It may have been pouring down with rain but THIS WAS THE DAY OF OUR TRADITIONS AND ALSO OUR …

Los Angeles by bus: Hollywood and Beverly Hills

My first full day in Los Angeles had me busing around Hollywood and Beverly Hills with stop-offs at cool places like the LACMA and The Grove and we also caught our first glimpse of a Hollywood celeb or two!

Unsurprisingly (and this is very unfortunate that it’s the case,) I wasn’t able to keep that promise– not even for a day few hours. There were a combination of reasons. Firstly, I had no laptop for about a month, thanks to the thieves who broke into my house just a few days before I was due to leave NZ. Secondly, wifi was piss poor (which was a disappointing surprise). Thirdly, my vlogging camera decided it would be the perfect time to konk out, less than a week into my travels. And just in general, blogging was kind of the last thing that was on my mind after a late night back from work. Yes, working for the mouse does have it’s hard days, just like every other job. On a slightly brighter note, after arriving home to New …
