Disney - Long Live The Magic We Made



Well, I said I wasn't ready to leave Florida, and it looks like Disney is trying to keep me here a little longer. I just got my schedule for next week, the schedule that I shouldn't really be getting because my last day is July 31...oops. I'm a little nervous because now I have to go talk to my managers and clear everything up before I leave, there must have been some mis-communication between Yield Management and my work location when I asked for an early release from the program (because of school), but it'll work out. Hopefully really quickly. haha.
But this is it, this is my last week working for Disney. Everything feels so bittersweet. Even walking down the half a mile long tunnel after a long day of work, the tunnel that I've walked a thousand times, felt a little weird last night, when I realized that I won't be walking it every day for too much longer. But I am excited to be reaching the finish line, to be able to say that I finished this program, and not just survived, but absolutely loved it. It's just a little strange, a little surreal, to be planning life beyond Orlando. To be moving on. I'm ready but I'm not. I'm excited but I'm nervous. I'm sad but I'm happy. I'm a basket case. :)
It's going to be an amazing week, no doubt about it. No more sad faces, no more tears, this is the good stuff. The last few times to watch the fireworks, the last few parade vending shifts that I absolutely love, and the last few days with the best of friends. What comes next, who knows? I'm living in the right now. And there's still a little pixie dust left to cover these last few days. :)

Long live the walls we crashed through
How the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
I was screaming long live all the magic we made
And bring on all the pretenders
One day we will be remembered
