    Hey....New to the Site!

    Hey everyone...I started on the site about two days ago and just realized that I never formally introduced myself. My name is Dana and I am 20 years old living in NY. My parents started my addiction to Disney World when I was just 18 months old, and we haven't stopped going since. I have been there 23 times, trip #24 planned over the 4th of July this year. We are DVC members, with our home resort being the Boardwalk, which I love.
    I always wanted to work for Disney, but since I skipped a year of college, it never fit into my schedule to do the college program . My dream job was always to operate the monorails, even though the uniforms leave something to be desired haha. Hmm, not sure what else you'd want to know about me, but I have an opinion about everything Disney, so if your interested in hearing what I have to say or just need some advice, feel free to drop me a line!

    Welcome to our Jungle! We got fun and games

    BTW, you could always be a skipper in the jungle as a CP, but those uniforms leave something to be desired as well, unless you love khaki and olive drab

    Welcome! Never give up on that dream to work for Disney. Even though you didn't do the cp, maybe there's still a job out there waiting for you.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?

    Hey, welcome ~!!

    I actually moved to Orlando to work at WDW when I was your age, and I'm really glad I did it while I was young! It's harder to do as you get older - do it now before you have anything holding you back. Finish college first, though, of course! Maybe you can start on the monorails, but then hopefully move up!

    Working down there is a blast! Be warned, not everyone who works there (unfortunately) has the "magic." Just stay away from negative people and keep the Disney Dream alive!

    Hey thanks everyone! It's been a few days, and so far, I think I'm addicted to this site I've already learned so much from all of you!
