hello, and welcome!
i’m very excited to be leaving shortly to become one of the opening cast members of the shanghai disney resort.
if you don’t know me, allow me to introduce myself. i’m abbey. i am a recent theatre major grad who somehow got blessed working at disneyworld the last two years. i have loved performing from a very early age, and grew up doing plays and dancing. i’ll confess that working for disney was never a real dream for me, but boy oh boy has it turned out to be so much better than i ever could have expected. i’ll give you the short version of my disney story:
i started in the college program spring/summer 2014 as a quick service food and beverage cast member. after about 2 months of working at the animal kingdom lodge i was transferred into the entertainment department as a character performer* where i spent the rest of my cp(college program). i was able to stay on as a seasonal cast member for the next year while i finished school, joined the adventures by disney cast, and returned to florida the following may. the last 6 months has been waiting for the next adventure, moving to shanghai to help open the newest disney park!
that’s the gist of it. i am so excited for this 13 month journey that is taking me around the world to start… and i’m happy to share it with you! feel free to contact me with any questions/comments you may have through facebook, instagram, or this blog.
**you may notice that i will shy away from using specific roles, work responsibilities, or training details to preserve character integrity. hope you understand!
