Holy Vlog Batman!

I've been wanting to start a vlog for a while but decided not to until I was accepted. Well now that that has happened, here is the Great Big Beautiful College Program Vlog!

Day 30

Favorite statue, fountain, or eye candy in the parks:


This is a great statue that I've always looked forward to seeing and getting my picture with on each trip. The quote at the base of the statue is also really cool. Disney really is really one of the few places where kids and adults can have fun together. At other parks that I've been to like Cedar Point, Kings Island, and Busch Gardens, my parents and I have not enjoyed doing the same things and my sister and I ended up going on our own for a majority of the day. At Disney my entire family can do 99% of the attractions together and have a great time.

Well this completes the 30 Day Challenge. I missed several days but overall I think I did pretty well. Periodic reminders from some certainly helped. Now that this is over,  I'll be updating much less frequently. As things come up regarding the program, I'll put something on here. Until then, have a great big beautiful tomorrow.

Day 29

Favorite Disney love song:

Beauty and the Beast:

So, I'm actually cheating for today. The actual question for today was really dumb so I'm stealing a question from another challenge for today.
Anyway, my favorite love song is Beauty and the Beast. It's the best song from one of the best movies ever made. I also really like that it isn't sung by the main characters, it's a song about them, and you really can't beat Angela Lansbury singing a love song.

Day 28

Favorite Firework Show:


This show has been my favorite for a long time. Everything about it is great; the music, the fireworks, all the other effects, etc. I can sing every second of the show and can play a lot of it on my horn too. Watching this show is one of the first things I want to do once I can get into the parks on the CP. There isn't much better than getting some dessert and then watching it from Italy. This show was also adapted into one of my favorite drum corps shows. In 2000, The Cadets used the music in their show We Are the Future and won a World Championship. I cannot watch or listen to either version of this show enough, it is really incredible.

Day 27

Favorite Walt Disney World Breakfast:

Mickey Waffles:

This is kind of difficult to answer as I have never stayed on property and have never eaten breakfast in the parks. However, all the hotels I have stayed at on my trips have had Mickey waffles available. I'm not the biggest fan of waffles and I never eat them at home, but I love getting to eat them before a day in the parks. I don't know what I would do if I couldn't have these on at least one day of my trip.

Day 26

Favorite Souvenir:

Stuffed Mickey Mouse:

This was the first thing I bought on my first trip to Disney. It was really the only thing I wanted to get on that first trip. Even though Mickey isn't my favorite character, this souvenir still means the most to me. I also have a pretty cool Steamboat Willie snow globe that would be a close second.

Day 25 and Other Big News

Favorite activity outside of the park, but still on Disney property:

Downtown Disney:

I love spending the first night I'm in Orlando around Downtown Disney. The World of Disney store is a ton of fun and I can spend way too much time and money there. I love the Art of Disney Store and the restaurants are great.

In other news, I got a very special email today. Nine days ago I had my interview for the College Program. I was not expecting anything for at least another week, but today I found out I was accepted for Fall Advantage. My role is attractions as of now, but hopefully that will change after I go to the auditions for character performer. I've already accepted everything and will be checking in at Vista Way on May 18. I am insanely excited to get down there and start working. Now I'm just nervous for everyone else in the Skype/Facebook group. Hopefully everyone else gets their emails very soon so we all know for sure that we'll be together in Disney.
