Wow! I move 14 days from now! It's so crazy! I've started saying goodbye to my friends and family and it's really hard. I love them all so much and although I know we'll stay in touch, it's never the same without some in person contact. Enough sadness, I got an email from Disney via Roger! Here it is:
We are so excited that you have accepted our offer to participate in our Cultural Representative Program at the Walt Disney World Resort! We look forward to your arrival on March 24, 2009 as a/an Canada Food and Beverage Cast Member.
Tell all your friends and family the exciting news! You are going to be working at the number-one vacation destination in the world - The Walt Disney World Resort!
We are sure that you have a lot of questions regarding next steps and your experience here in the United States and we look forward to providing you with all of the answers!
To get things started please be sure to review our website at www.disneyinternationalprograms.com.
You will be receiving a package of information in the upcoming month regarding your acceptance, complete with a booklet of information to get you prepared. You will also be receiving e-mails from our team to keep you informed of all of the things that you should be thinking of prior to your arrival. Please remember to check your e-mail periodically and let us know if your e-mail address should change between now and your arrival!
Congratulations again and welcome to the team!
I'm really excited to get the package! However I'm scared I won't get it until after I leave! Our mail is crazy slow, we get everything a week later than everyone else. Of course when it arrives everyone will know because I'll take way too many photos and post them here! I've started a packing list (which is currently 5 pages long) and my desk is heaping with clothes, shoes, and 'things' I'm preparing to pack. These last 2 weeks are going to go really fast and then it's a week in Toronto and a year in Florida.
24 days until I'm a Cast Member! unreal.
