30 Day Challenge- Day 26 and 27

Day 26: Favorite Souvenir From WDW

Cute T-shirts are my favorite things to look at/buy when I am there! I am talking about the stylish ones.. not the plain regular t-shirts lol.This one isnt exactly it.. but you get the idea.

Day 27: Favorite Breakfast

Okay random i know. But my favorite way to do breakfast while i am on vaca is this. Usually we stay at Saratoga Springs (or this could reallly be at any resort) but i love to wake up at like 9, go to whatever food area is available, get myself a crossiant and a coffee, then go lay by the pool and eat breakfast while enjoying the morning sun!! I would rather do this any day than eat any other type of breakfast!! It is just so relaxing and its the perfect way to start the day!! :)

Well i only have 3 days leftt of this 30 day challenge but since i still have like 60 some days left i am considering doing the other 30 day challenge thats out there... well see.. Okay well thats all for now.

Oh ps. i emailed housing this week about not living in provided housing and i have to send in this petition thing i guess.. hmm oh well!

So sorry I have been MIA for a few days. I have been enjoying the sunshine and nice weather and hanging out in Orlando! It has been sort of a tease being so close to the disney parks but not actually going but its okay bcs I am saving up $$ to live down here with in about 2 short months!

So anyway... I included a few pics of what we have been up to! We met up with my boyfriends brother for dinner at olive garden. We watched wishes from poly beach drink in hand!! :) spent time with my little cousins at the pool and hotel, went to dinner at trex and walked around downtown Disney and had ghiradelli icecream!! We went shopping at the outlets and spent more time at the pool. Ohh and we found the apartment that my dbf and i will be living in when we move down here!

Wow that's a lot in a few short days!! We are stuck in traffic on I 4 right now... no surprise there lol! We are enroute to visit my grandparents in longwood for dinner.

Well tomorrow we will be going to st Petersburg beach to celebrate st pattys day!! Hope all is well with everyone and hopefully this wasn't too boring!!

Day 10

Day 10: Favorite attraction in the worlds?

I am gonna count Illuminations as an attraction OKAY? haha well I love the environment of being in the world showcase, but don't necessarily have a favorite attraction. I love Illuminations because it just gives you a chance to stop and take in everything around you! Last time I watched it, like really watched it, was the last day of my vacation with my dbf's family, including "our" niece and nephews! It was such a magical experience and I remember crying because I didn't want it to end! 

I leave for spring break tomorrow and am soooo excited to get out of this nasty snow storm!!! If I don't update as much that will be why!!

Day 7

Day 7: Favorite Attraction in Adventureland

Jungle Cruise!!

This is a great attraction! I definitely would loveee working as a Skipper on Jungle Cruise!! Anyway, I love how this ride is not only exciting but funny as well! Except one time I had a skipper who looked like she hated her life and was NOT exciting! But yes this is a fun ride and one of my top favorite rides overall!! :)

Oh and the DBF and I went to the campus presentation! They talked a bit more in-depth about everything that was in the e-presentation. I won a little disney screen cleaner and Brett won a deck of disney cards for answering trivia questions! They gave us a list of contact info and a pamphlet that looked like the purple folder... but OBVIOUSLY was no where near as cool. :) haha it talked mainly about the living, learning and earning of the DCP. That was basically the extent of the program but it was cool to meet all of the recruiters and campus reps and talk to them about the program!

If anyone has ANY questions or comments or anything they want to talk about.. feel free to comment and I will be suree to let you know! :)

See ya real soon!

Day 6

Day 6: Favorite attraction in Frontier Land

Splash Mountain!
I lovee this ride! Minus the whole getting absolutely soaked thing.. haha but I sort of figured out how to avoid that part. I ask the gift shop for a LARGE plastic bag!! and sort of wrap it around me!! haha works every time!! I just hate walking around the parks in wet shorts and shoes! Anyway. yes this is just a fantastic ride because its great for all ages, its so long! (thats a good thing) and zip a dee do dah is the best song ever!! haha 

Well thats about it for today. Make sure to check out my new page thats full of interview questions/tips if you have yet to apply for the program.

Oh and the dbf and I will be attending the campus presentation today at 6pm. :) super excited to be able to talk about my acceptance!! :) and just be around other disney fans!! Also check out my dbf's (thats disney boyfriend btw) blog thats now linked to my page!!

Day 5

Day 5: Favorite Attraction in Liberty Square

Haunted Mansion.
So this is for sure my DBFs absolute favorite... mine.. I like it but its not like one of my all time favorite attractions. I do love the special effects and everything though. I am also excited to see the results of the refurb of the queue when its finished! :)

Day 3 and 4... a little behind

Okay so I totally didnt have an opportunity to update this at all yesterday so I did two today! My DBF and I have been talking alot about what things were going to need to bring down with us and its very frustrating because since we wont be living in the provided housing, we need to bring things like couches and tables and a bed down with us. Lots to think about in the next 70 some odd days! AHH! can we just get there alreadyy!

Day 4: Favorite Attraction in Fantasy Land

Mickey's Phillhar Magic.

I am a HUGE fan of these type of 3D shows. This one is the best though. With all of the smells and the sprays of water and the music and excitement- its hard not to love it! I look forward to this attraction the most when I go to Disney! I cant wait to go again!

Day 3: Favorite Attraction in Tomorrowland

Space Mountain.

Space Mountain is just such a fun ride! I just love how exciting the ride is because you don't know what to expect because its so dark!

Hey again. I am getting so excited to get out of this freezing cold weather and get down to florida. I am so over school this semester and just cannot wait to be done. I think were down to like 80 days til check in! May 23rd... hurry up!

So day two of the 30 day challenge is my favorite land at magic kingdom. And the winner is............

Day 1: Favorite Disney World Park


There is just NOTHING like walking down Main Street and seeing the Castle and Walt himself right there greeting you. It puts a smile on my face every time. :) and I know that I am FINALLY back at the Happiest Place on Earth. The best thing is the atmosphere when you are in this park. Talk about feelin the magic.. its all over the place. This is definitely the park where I feel the most Disney spirit.

So for anyone who doesn't know me, my name is Alyssa and I'm from Ohio! I applied for the Walt Disney World College Program for the first time on January 19th, and 2 days later, on the 21st, had my phone interview. After 19 days of waiting I received my letter saying that I was pending... :( NOT what I was hoping for. But I stayed as positive as I could and 21 days later (thats today!) I got my congrats email! I will be working as an Attractions cast member for the Fall Advantage program. The best part is, my boyfriend, Brett, got accepted too!! He will be doing merchandise! We both check in on May 23rd and will be living in an apartment not through Disney housing. 

So basically I am really excited and cannot wait to begin this new adventure in my life. I will try to post as much as I can, but until I actually get there, life might not be toooo exciting! But hopefully you will follow me in my journey to the Happiest Place on Earth.

Til next time!
