Getting to know the girl behind the blog…
Hi, I’m Rachel. I’m a twenty year old history undergraduate at the University of York and this summer I’ll be working as a cast member at Walt Disney World. This is also my first attempt at blogging, so bear with me as I figure this out!
I decided to apply for the Disney CEP as I had a pretty uneventful summer after my first year at uni, and wanted to take advantage of the 3 months I had away from my studies. After seeing a host of amazing photos on Facebook from friends that had gone travelling, I decided it was time to take matters into my own hands and make this summer one of the best I’ve ever had.
Unlike a lot of applicants, I didn’t actually hear of the CEP from a past participant but found the opportunity online after doing a few google searches. I’m a pretty big Disney fan (that probably goes without saying!), and after visiting the parks for the first time in 2014 I really wanted the chance to go back. So this opportunity seemed perfect! Not only would I get to see behind the magic, but I would be spending around 2 months in one of my favourite places on earth.
So after an online application and a series of interviews here we are! I’m off to Florida to start my CEP on the 19th of June and am staying in the US until the 1st of September.
Disney here I come!
