After a good year of following other relocation blogs, Disney fan sites, and Disney-dedicated Facebook pages, we started to see that we can fit in there somewhere and bring Disney "through our eyes" to our friends, family, and extended community. I don't know how much Disney news I would ever get first hand knowledge of, but I DO know that both Mark and I love aspects of the Disney parks that are often overlooked. We get so excited when we see something new pop up somewhere, and we follow all of the stages of growth when they announce a new attraction or area.
Marks' dream job at Disney is to be front and center; something he is very good at. His number one postion is to be a ride operator, followed by parade performer with a special dream of being a part of the show that welcomes guests to the park first thing in the morning (even though I know from experience that he is NOT a morning person!). As for a regular job, he wants to find a position as a Chef in a trendy restaurant in the area that caters mostly to locals, and not to tourists if possible. Here in Phoenix we have a number of independently owned restaurants (The Culinary Dropout, The Arrogant Butcher, Windsor, etc.) that we both love and we hope to find similar ones in Orlando.
As for my DREAM DISNEY job? My friends and family know that I am an artist, but I never pursued it professionally. Something I regret, but hey... live with no regrets, right???? So, my dream job would be to work in their prop shop manufacturing park items, or on their Resort Enhancement Team. Outside of that, I would like to be able to license my own Disney themed art designs at the parks and their galleries. Most of my art work is Disney themed, anyway.
In short, I have so many more things that I hope to explore and share. I hope you will be along with us on the ride.
