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 …

2 Hours Until Disney

Is there a prize for least efficient blogger? Because if so, that should go to me. My excuse? My laptop was stolen. Yup, literally just days before I’m meant to leave someone stole my laptop. Typical. Because of this blogging has been a bit hard, but I am now armed with a tablet (a slow one tbh though,) and will be trying my hardest to blog and vlog when I can! Meanwhile I’m having my last legal drink for a couple of months (I don’t turn 21 until March) and doing all the last minute checks! First stop: LOS ANGELES! See ya there.  

6 FYIs About the Disney Cultural Exchange Program

In light of the fact that I’m leaving for the US in 7 (!!) days, I thought I’d motivate myself to be a more consistent blogger by doing a blog post every day for the next week, leading up to my departure. Today I thought I’d give a quick run down on the Disney Cultural Exchange in Orlando, FL for anyone who thinks it might be something they’d like to do, or even if you just want to know more about it. 1. Live in New Zealand or Australia: Unfortunately the Cultural Exchange Program is only open to people who live in NZ or Aus. HOWEVER, there are also programs under different titles and with slightly different setups for people from other countries outside of NZ and Aus, as well as probably most famous program, the Disney College Program for domestic students. 2. Be a tertiary student: Another requirement for the program is that you have to currently be studying at a tertiary provider (for example; university, polytech or TAFEs). You must have completed at …

Guess what?! I’m Moving to Orlando, Florida!

via @annaleemutz I am so so so excited to announce that in January next year I’ll be packing up my bags once again to move overseas! This time I’m off to Orlando, Florida to work at Walt Disney World! The excitement is real! If you’ve been reading my ‘Currently‘ posts the past couple of months you may have noticed that I’ve been banging on about a ‘secret’ trip that I couldn’t announce yet because I was still waiting for confirmation and guess what?! It’s confirmed! A couple of months ago I applied for the Disney International Cultural Exchange Program and since then I’ve been waiting in anticipation for my application to get accepted, then once that came through I had to attend an interview and after that, the most nerve-wracking wait to find out if I had been accepted into the program. Disney is just one of the those things that seemed like a really really awesome opportunity and I didn’t want to miss out. I was actually in the process of interviewing for an amazing job …
