Andrea has been a Cast Member at Disneyland since 2003. She started her Disney career working on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and shortly thereafter moved over to Jungle Cruise where she became a Lead. From time to time, she would also cover the Tiki Room.
Tiki Andrea and Kevin (showing off his new Jim Carey neck) With lovely parting gifts for Andrea in hand, we opened the park and quickly made our way to the Jungle Cruise, only to find out that she was working from 4 PM to close.

There to see her off was a rather large handful of her fans. Her last boat ended up being two boats. As I said, it was difficult seeing her, knowing it was the last time on her boat.
Here's to you, kid. Good luck as you continue your ventures in college and beyond!
