Grand Opening Team!

As a leadership experience during the program I believe being part of the Grand Opening team of the Art of Animation Resort was my biggest 聽strive of leardership.聽

During the program I聽couldn’t聽believe I was part of the grand opening team of the resort. Only hand selected cast聽members聽were 聽put on the Grand Opening team. It was such a great experience and once in a life time. We had a one night free stay for me and 5 of my family聽聽members聽including the dining plan 聽at the Nemo section of the family suits . It was such a great experience no words cant explain what I felt during those 3 months being part of the Grand opening team .聽

Evaluation Sheet!

As a Disney College Program student you have to get an聽evaluation聽sheet from your managers before leaving the program. In my case I started off in Animal Kingdom 聽in Outdoor foods and then I was deployed to be part of the Grand opening team of the new Art of Animation Resort . As for my evaluation sheet for Animal Kingdom I was not able to 聽get one because my corresponding manager that was in charged of me was 聽hospitalized when I went to get my evaluation.
As for my second home which was Art of Animation Resort I was able to get my evaluation sheet and I was so proud of my self for the great bondage I had with the managers and the work聽environment聽I was in I loved it all. it was such a great experience and I know I am capable of doing things now that I never thought I was going to be able too.

Guest Service Fanatic Cards

Being a cast 聽member for 8 months sure did make me more of a people person. I learned how to interact with guests from all around the world and learned how to be patient and be a a good co-worker. At the beginning tit was not easy for me at all! 聽but the Hard work did pay off and showed me and my higher ups how I can change a person’s life with the smallest things on the earth.

I gained 2 service fanatic cards in which are put in your record card in Walt Disney World . It shows good personnel in the company and also makes you feel good as a Cast Member and as a person that you are capable of changing someone life in a matter of an instant! 馃檪聽

A month ago I returned from being an intern at the Disney College Program . I interned at Disney from Jan 25,2012 – August 3,2012 . 聽I enjoyed the college program alot. I learned , experienced and also had fun at the same time while I was living in Florida for 8 months . I learned how to work with people around the world , with co-workers , managers , chefs & etc. I experienced how to live on my own and how to have a hands on experience with my first job in Walt Disney World. 聽I also had the opportunity to go around all the parks on my free time and experience what I never experienced when I was a little kid.

I hope you all enjoy my portfolio! 馃檪
