We all can't wait to hear about all the experiences as the CMO! You seem like a great person to be spreading all over the world! Hopefully you'll have time to stop in here and say "hi" and let us know what you're up to from time to time.
Make sure to get with Lou for an interview.
Congratulations Justin!!! Maybe you can fashion the purple helmet with the CMO ears. hahaha. Can't wait to hear what your first act as CMO is.
WOW!!! Congratulations to Justin! Way to go fellow DWT friend, Pittsburgher and United Methodist!
I just finished watching your finalist interview video & the announcement video!
That must have been one crazy moment!!! I can't even imagine!!!!!
Anyway, congrats again, and I'm sure you will do an absolutely MAGICAL job in that position!!!!

Way to go Justin! I can't wait to hear all about your new job.
Congrads Justin! I watched all the videos on the site and you certainly seem like the right man for the job. Enjoy your time as CMO (and if you need a personal assistant I can be reached at..... )

When this contest started I was a big Lou supporter... and I was shocked that he didn't make the Top 10.
After that I became a big Justin supporter, but Patrick's video was funny and he got a lot of Podcast love. I told my wife, "Justin's great, but I think Patrick might take it."
So when it came down to the Final 3, Justin was now clearly the best choice. His video, his interviews, and the special events. Justin was unstoppable... clearly the right man for the job.
I'm so glad that I finally got it right. No surprises. Disney got themselves the right person for the job.
Enjoy yourself, Justin. And tell us all about it.

CONGRATULATIONS JUSTIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just signed on to see what the results were! Looks like having all of us crazy DWT'ers who would sit and vote for an hour straight paid off!
Enjoy every minute of this awesome opportunity and share all the details with us!
Oh my goodness! I can't believe you created a separate thread for me! THANKS!!!! I just posted over on the other CMO thread, so be sure to check it out! For now, it is LATE and I need to get some sleep . . .
Thank you so much for everything! I'll be sure to pop in tomorrow and try to answer some questions and share some of the amazing memories I have already!
Well it is a subject CERTAINLY worthy of it's own thread! Just glad Jenn hopped right on it!

Again, I am so flattered and humbled by you all! Thanks for everything! Now that things are slowly settling down at work (although I have a few REALLY long days ahead of me this week!) what all would you like to know? I will be posting a few things on the dreamcmo.com website eventually, but if you have any specific questions (that I'm allowed to answer!) I'd be more than happy to fill you in!
Just gonna jump in...
When does the job officially begin?
I know you'll be going to Disneyland and WDW, what about other parks?
What about other buildings, such as Walt Disney Imagineering, Pixar or other corporate places and events (such as Official Attraction Opening Ceremonies)?
Who do you most hope you will get to meet?
Do you think they might look for your input or advice on upcoming projects, and how intimidating would that be?
When you go to parks, will they occasionally allow you to bring close family or are they looking at this purely as business?
Do you think you might be able to (sometimes) tell us when you'll be in the parks, so that we might happen to bump into and congratulate you in person?
Do you think you'll still be able to make MouseFest?
I get the impression that this is a publicity post, but that you will get some opportunities to show your mettle. If your ideas don't entice them, they will utilize you mostly for publicity. If however, you impress them with your ideas and suggestions you could ultimately find yourself being offered a more permanent position. Is that anywhere close to the truth?
Congratulations again. I'm very excited for you and hope you had a magical Celejubilarty.
