WOOHOOO! If I may, that is the only way to describe how I feel about my upcoming internship in Walt Disney World. I will officially be a character attendant for the Fall 2015 Disney College Program (or DCP as it is commonly referred to). To those of you who do not know what that means, I am the awesome kid in the blue shirt who says “Here’s Mickey Mouse!!” and guides people as they meet and greet with their favorite characters.
Now to everyone yelling, “What?!? You’re not friends with a princess?” or “I thought you wanted to be an actor?” or my personal favorite “Why would you want to do that?” Glad you asked.
I took my first full-fledged adventure to Disney World at age 4, since then I have been there about 8 times and loved each moment of each trip. I love Disney. Not ashamed of it and call me a child because I take it as a compliment. Not only is Disney one of the most successful companies in the world between movies, tv, theme parks and merchandise, Disney is all about entertainment.
Connecting the dots? Entertainment…..acting. I knew you would get it. Now do I expect to be put in a major motion picture because I did a college internship? Clearly not. However, Disney opens many doors and as many people know is a family. I will still be part of the show and referred to as a cast member during my 4 month internship and honestly I cannot wait.
What could be better than creating magic for families from all over the world as Disney does so well? I will keep everyone posted when my adventure begins August 24th! Keep checking here and youtube.com/lexifazz for DCP updates!
