Role Change!

Two days ago, I got an email. (revolutionary, I know...) But this email was unlike any I have ever received.

"Congratulations! You passed your recent Walt Disney World® Character Audition and will be invited to participate in a Character Performer Role in the Disney College Program!!"

Ok, so I gotta stop with the quoting.  But then you wouldn't have the EXACT words I read, now would you?  By the way, did you read that correctly??  "PASSED" I believe is the key word.  Holy crap!  Come January, instead of working at a restaurant in Walt Disney World (because that would have been SO torturous.... joking, btw), I will be performing every day portraying a Disney character! This is a dream come true, and after finding out, I literally felt out of body for a few hours.  Of course, I gotta get the lingo right... since there is only ONE of each character ever and they are all real, I simply am going to become "best friends" with some characters.  Keepin' the magic alive! That's it but more to come when something else interesting happens!!

P.S. Disney shouldn't send out emails saying nothing except "visit our website!" (like I haven't stalked every link on it countless times already) when I am anxiously awaiting the results of a character audition!!  But all is well! (understatement)

"Congratulations! You have been selected to participate as a Quick-Service Food & Beverage Cast Member on the Disney College Program in the Spring 2011 Season."

I truly cannot believe I saw those words.  Today was crazy; I have been waiting to hear that for years now. Seeing it on the screen left me in a state of disbelief.  After first just being overwhelmed with excitement, my feelings died down, and it sunk in that I would be leaving people I love for the entirety of five months out of next year.  But showing their encouragement and love, my family (Kayla) baked a (rather delicious) cake shaped like Mickey himself and made cards and laid out Disney paraphernalia to celebrate. It was a special and fantastic and incredible and crazy and unbelievable day.  To top it off, I had the 9th show of Hairspray tonight, and it was the first show that I've been completely healthy and well-rested. Amazing day.

So, I'm hoping to keep this updated with my DCP-related adventures and such.  We'll see how long this lasts.
