Got another email this morning—a reminder about the Disney Look guidelines. It's pretty basic... you've got to be a good-looking, clean-cut, all-natural kinda person to work in the parks. It's really interesting to see how companies use certain kinds of people as embodiments of their brand, and reminds me of a million other places that I have been where the people all seem to be an extension of what they are a part of. (Apple, Hot Topic, Starbucks, etc.)
What's funny is that we have already gotten all this information, and several times at that! haha I think they're just finding ways to send intermittent emails to get me more excited every time. It works! I can't wait.
In other Disney-related news, I think I found a roommate for myself. And probably two sets of apartment-mates. We are hoping to get a 3 bedroom apartment at Chatham Square! My roommate's name is Lauren, and she seems super nice and agreeable, so I'm sure we will get along just great!
I do keep up with Disney news, and am getting pretty excited about some things that will be happening while I am there—The Princess and the Frog comes out in theaters on December 11th! It was animated using the traditional methods, so that her movie matches that of the other princesses. It is set in New Orleans, so I'm sure the WDW Port Orleans resort will be having some big parties around that time. I am excited about some unveilings and character greetings!!
Also, there is a project going on in Pixar Place of Hollywood Studios, rumored to be a giant animatronic Luxo lamp! How cool is that?
Anyway, just an update for all of you. I'll post again sometime soon!
