I’ve gone to work parties before, but none like this. Disney closed Typhoon Lagoon from 7-11 p.m. to everyone except Disney internship and program participants.
Yes. They closed down an entire water park to everyone other than us. It was outstanding.
They bused us over from Vista Way and dropped us off at Typhoon Lagoon. There they gave us free t-shirts, free locker rentals and free food. There was a DJ on the beach, playing music and giving away free stuff.
And it rained the entire time.
Honestly, at first the rain was a bit of a drag. It was pretty chilly to be in a bathing suit, but the water in the lazy river and the water pool was so warm, so it didn’t matter.
They also shot off fireworks, just for us. How awesome is that? The people working there were so friendly and excited for us to be there, people just seem to love to work here. It’s really a great atmosphere, I’m so thrilled to be part of it.
Oh, and there were pirates. Pirates everywhere. They were hilarious and the entire thing exceeded my expectations. Honestly, I don’t even know what to expect with Disney, because they always go above and beyond.
Still can’t believe I’m here. Living the dream, guys. Wish I had photos from the Starlit Splash, but I was too busy having fun.
I hope everyone back home is having fun at their jobs too! And as always, thanks for reading.
