I am Insanely Hopped Up On Disney Lovin'

How cool is this?!

Oh my goodness!!!!!! As the title says I'm so hopped up on Disney Lovin' you can't even believe it.  You wouldn't think my excitement for Disney Parks could possibly be any higher, but right now, I'm flying way above the ground.  I am lucky enough, somehow to be in a class taught by Ron Logan! A Disney Living Legend! I owe you all an update about my UCF Orientation from last Friday, a super fun day at Epcot and Hollywood Studios on Saturday (including a Star Tours ride on the first day of soft openings! and Pixar Weekend!) and moving in to my apartment at Rosen College and meeting my roommates on Sunday! Not to mention the first few days of class.  I don't have class Friday so I will update everything then and then nightly give little updates, suggested blogs/posts, etc.  For now check out this list of productions Professor Logan worked on:

Think of the impact some of these shows have had on your life and love of Disney Parks throughout your life. I know many, many times when our family sat out for hours waiting for Fantasmic! to start along the Rivers of America.  Or the first time I saw snow fall with the Disney Christmas fireworks.  Or taking my cousins to see the Festival of the Lion King and feeling so proud of the show myself, even though I had nothing to do with it, just because I was a Disney Cast Member and Disney had made this incredible show. Disney Entertainment, there isn't anything like it. Also he tells us some pretty incredible stories in class about business at Disney, as well as today he pointed himself out playing trumpet while Annette Funicello sang during Disneyland After Dark, a Disneyland Sunday Night episode.  I owe the episode myself and had seen it many times, so it was pretty neat. Night Everyone!
