Working Fantasmic! and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party

I'm past the halfway point of my program and to jazz things up a little I managed to move my shifts around in order to try working at some new places!


First I went to Fantasmic!, the nighttime show spectacular at Hollywood Studios. They have food where guests first enter and it was my job to fill the orders. The menu is simple so it wasn't too hard, but very different from my job at Roaring Fork! For one I wasn't actually making anything, just grabbing the food from warmers and pouring drinks. I had fun though and it was a quick rush! We rarely get a crowd at the Lodge so it was interesting to see how busy locations run things.


Then just this past Tuesday I worked at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party! This is the special nighttime event held at Magic Kingdom on select nights in November and December. There's cookies, hot chocolate, and other festive drinks all around the park as well as special character meetings, an exclusive parade, and Christmas show in front of the castle.

Since the party requires a separate ticket, I joined the group of cast members who stand behind the turnstiles and hand out the wristbands that distinguish the party-goers from the regular Magic Kingdom attendees. It was a lot of fun putting on a cute Christmas costume and spreading holiday cheer! And I wasn't in charge of a single plate of food- what a relief. 

I'm glad I got the chance to work new places- it's nice to get out from the Wilderness Lodge once and awhile!
