Perhaps you have heard of me, perhaps you haven't, but I am the new intern at Tales of a Disneyland Cast Member! I figured I would introduce myself officially on the blog, since I have already been vlogging, contributing to the newly launched instagram account, and Danielle already told our story of how we became friends.

For starters, I’m a college junior, Communication Studies major, Southern California native, Diet Coke aficionado, curly hair embracer, and mostly importantly, Disneyland lover. Of course that just scratches the surface of who I really am, but hopefully I can continue to dig a little deeper over my time as an intern.
When Danielle asked me to be a part of her blog, I had never been a cast member. I came on because of my many experiences with Disney and their parks. Well, recently I applied and was accepted into the Disney College Program as a lifeguard. After letting it sink in and thinking about it, I decided to accept the offer and will be participating in their Fall Advantage 2015 term.

Soon, I will posting about how my application and interview process went and hopefully be updating the blog about my time and all the magical moments I have there.

Well, that’s all for now. I really look forward to working with and contributing to Tales of a Disneyland Cast Member.

See ya real soon!

What I am about to tell is a story that is very special to me and is a true example of how Disney brings people together. 

As many of you know, I spent time last year in Africa ( see some  photos I took  Ernest Travel). This trip changed my life for many reasons, but in more ways than one would think. Leading up to the trip, was in charge of training and leading the team. When I thought the group list was finalized, I got news that a girl named Lucy would be joining my team. I knew of Lucy because she was in my

Communication Theory class and sat two seats over.  However, we never actually talked and the class ended. As people do these days, they gain information about each other via social media.  Funny enough, Lucy was doing the same thing. That is when she realized I was a huge Disney fan and attended the D23 expo. When looking at the photos from the expo, we realized that she was in the background of one of my photos. What are the odds?! This confirmed to us that our friendship was nothing short of divine.  

In Tanzania, Lucy and I went through some pretty tough stuff together. In fact, I have always told her that she is "my Roy", when we were there. (This references Walt Disney and his brother Roy. Roy never left Walt's side and always found a way to fund Walt's big dreams). Lucy never left my side and proved to be the most loyal friend a person could have. She believed in me when no one else did and for that I am eternally gratefully.   

As life would have it, Lucy was looking for an internship. After looking and looking, it both hit us. Why couldn't she intern for me? We both share a love for Disney and she is a Communication major. So blogging and social media is right up her alley. In fact, Lucy may be experiencing the College Program very soon. So it felt like the right time to bring Lucy on board to Tales of a Disneyland Cast Member. So to all my readers, I would like to formally introduce to you:  my best friend and my Roy, Lucia. 

Together we have launched the Tales of a DL CM Instagram. As well as started a Vlog--- that's right a video blog, which we will be updating regularly. Until then, enjoy our first episode of the "Disneyland Darlings".
