I got the Internship!!!!

#1 Postby chesty leroux » Thu Nov 03, 2005 4:10 pm

Hey guys, i know i have mentioned briefly i was applying for an internship, but I didnt want to say too much cause I was afraid of jinxing myself. Well, I got accepted to do the Disney College Internship!!! I walked in after class today and there was an envelope with my acceptance packet! What a great birthday present!!!

I wasn't selected to be a character performer, but I am still accepted to the program! I will prolly be doing Tipped food service like i do now. And I will be able to take entertainment classes related to my major and if they like me i can extend for the summer and audition to be a character performer again.

SOOOOO Come January I am off to Orlando!!!! I am so excited!!!

So...im thinking the vegan vacation should be in florida. hehe.

Wow! Congrats Ash and Happy Birthday!

Sounds like fun, what better time to head for Orlando than January? There are so many people working at Disney too, from all over the world! I'm sure you will make some interesting new friends. Too bad the vegan CEO resigned last month. :(

not wishing to be totally negative ash, but disney is not an ethical company by a really long stretch.

they are also one of the main reasons mcdonalds is as big as it is today.

it is also widely believed that walt disney was a facist.

Congratulations!!! I'm from Orlando. You should join Vegetarians of Central Florida while you're down here, there's lots of cool people involved in it. The website is - http://www.vegcf.org/ . I hope to see you at some of the meetups. Also, when you have time make sure you go to downtown Orlando because there is a vegan hot dog stand there!

Oh also, when you're down here you should check out the restaurant Boma at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. There is a chef who works there named TJ who is the best vegan chef I've ever met. Just tell him you're vegan and he'll make a bunch of stuff for you.

Thanks Guys! I really am so excited! Will, I will definately be picking your brain for information about where to shop etc. and a vegan hot dog stand? heaven. I don't know how much free time I am going to have but I will definately look into joining that group. I'm still sortof in shock. I can't stop smiling ( which is what Disney wants anyways hehe). They told me on the phone yesterday that I scored the highest scores possible on my interview. This may sound corny but I don't think I could have done it without you guys. You all are such a sense of support for me *tear, and Rob is such a motivator... :D :D :D :D :D I
ll keep you guys posted on any developments, like once i find out what i am doing.

(not meant to sound pissy):

are we just going to ignore the fact that disney are highly unethical?
