When I first started there on my orientation day, we went to the inn between for lunch (a cafe backstage in disneyland)... well sitting beside us was cinderelle, snow white and belle, and NOW they just seemed like ordinary people. Once outside I saw Pooh with NO HEAD, mickey, etc... I really started to lose the magic once seeing these. When I got home i told my daughters I had lucnh with the dinsey princesses, their eyes lit up and were sooooo excited so of course, they had to tell their friends.. and there friends wished their moms worked at disneyland.
After I DID start to work.. the magic returned for me.. because I clean up the park for the guests, so I am helping to crete the magic
I do look at the parks with a different perpective though when we visit as guests.. but the magic ic back with me
It esepcially came back to me on May 4th and July 17th (the 4th) the kickoff to the 50th.. and of coruse the 50th.. seeing all the guests so excited to be there on this special day really brought tears to my eyes. I was proud to be a part of their magical experiences
I have worked at DCA for a year and a half now, and have never considered it just a job to go to.. I love it there.. and wouldnt trade my job for anything in the world. I am lucky to work at the happiest place on earth I guess
