    Introducing myself

    Here I am. I'm Katy. I worked at MK for 13 years before I moved from FL to NC. Now I live in CA. I hate it! I miss everything the East Coast has to offer...especially WDW. I worked in Costumed Entertainment.

    Hi Katy (captainhook1978)!!! Welcome aboard! Where in CA do you live now? After 13 years of working at WDW, it must be tough to be that far away!

    What do you do for a living now?

    Hi and welcome. I was wondering, since you were a CM for so long, whether you might have known our tour guide from the Keys to the Kingdom tour we took in February. Her name is Rae, she had been in entertainment prior to being a tour guide, and all the characters we met in the park seemed to know her.

    She was a fantastic guide, by the way, very passionate about Disney (both the man and the company).

    Right now, I stay at home with my 21 month old son, Aiden. We all (me, my hubby and Aiden) live in Fremont, CA, right outside of San Francisco. UGH!!! Looking forward to getting back to East Coast life.

    Sorry Tony, I don't recall a Rae. The other CM's I hung out with were a tight knit group (we all went to the same Dance Studio...my dance teacher daughter was my choreographer) I am glad you had a great experience with her though.
