for the first time in forever…

Finally have the time to update about the happenings of the past few weeks…i never dreamed this whole moving in, training, working, and balancing in fun would be THIS time consuming.  I would like to call the past few weeks my weeks of firsts. Ive done so many things since I’ve been here I never thought I would… working seven days in a row is unheard of for me, I’m currently on day six and its been rough. Training has been an intense process, I started out about a week and a half ago at Disney university taking classes in front desk operations and Disney vacation club and let me tell you THANK THE LORD they train you on the reservation system in a classroom first. There is SO much information to learn it would be virtually impossible to get the hang of it at on the job training.

I finally started training at the grand floridian five days ago first in bell services, then runner, and now front desk.  I could not ask for a Better resort to wok at and I’m so lucky to have been placed there.

There is just so much to say I can’t even start to put direction to my thoughts  but I’m going to make a point to start updating regularly so I can actually document this experience in its full glory!  just so hard until I get an actual schedule going on here I’m exhausted!

Is this real life??

Today was the first official da of my Disney journey.  I was FINALLY given my job location and found out my housing location. Today was a series of lines after lines and waiting around in the hot sun but it was so worth it.  I found out I was placed at the front desk of the GRAND FLORIDIAN RESORT.  um, who decided I was qualified to work at such an upscale resort with no hotel experience? Whoever it was I could never thank enough. What an amazing learning experience to be able to further my knowledge  of the hospitality industry in the absolute best possible setting. God was definitely looking down on me today!

I also got my first choice housing, one bedroom in Patterson Court with my two roommates who so far seem to be even more amazing than I could have hoped.  I think we will get along splendidly. 😃  I am dragging my feet moving in and still have a ways to go but once my mom leaves ill have plenty of time for that. My apartment is beautiful and we have PLENTY of room for our stuff which I definitely didn’t expect.

Overall check in wasn’t THAT bad and I was free for the rest of the day after around one so I can’t complain.  my mom and I did some exploring in downtown Disney and had some delicious sandwiches from earl of sandwich and I would definitely recommend it if you don’t want to break the bank to eat in downtown Disney.

I am so thankful everything worked out better than I could ever have imagined. It still doesn’t even seem real.🌠✨😍
