Weekly Journal #14

Week 14… wow I can’t believe this semester is almost coming to a close!! I wasn’t scheduled many days this week which is perfect because our finals are next week.  This week has basically been spent working on my two class presentations!  The final in one class is a “Shark Tank” pitch trying to sell my Deluxe Resort to the sharks.  The premice is to show the sharks why they should invest in our resort.  Our deluxe resort is called “The Roots Resort & Spa” and is based in Louisianna.  Our selling point was that every guest would recieve a pop-socket for their phone which would act as a magicband.  This would allow guests to get into their room, charge to their room, and have access to the spa & other amentities straight from the pop-socket.  I love the idea and am so excited to present with my group! We put a lot of work into it!

Since I was not scheduled many days again, I also picked up a few shifts.   This week I picked up shifts at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa!  This was also very different than any other resort I have worked at in the past.  This resort is a DVC (Disney Vacation Club) so most of the reservations have opted for online check-in.  I was a little nervous at first, but it ended up being SO EASY to work there.  It was almost too easy.  Since many of their guests were online check-in, it was so slow at the desk!  At my home resort Disney’s Pop Century Resort we usually have 750-900 check-ins per night.  At Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, we only had 47 physical check-ins all day! I personally only checked-in 6 guests during my 8 hour shift.  It was cool working there, but I don’t think I would want to pick up again! The day went by so slow, I felt like I wasn’t being challenged.

Overall, week 14 was great!  Looking forward to the last week for my journal entries!
