I am a Stage Technician Cast Member at the Disneyland Resort, and a huge Disney fan. My beautiful wife, Christi, and little Princess, Caillean, are Disney fans too, and we all LOVE to go as much as possible!!!!
Hello all! It's been a while since my last post. :-) I've been SUPER busy with Traditions, Our California Story, Welcome to Entertainment, OJT (On the Job Training), and working overnight maintenance on WOC. WHEW! So far, I am LOVING it! This job is all I dreamed it would be! I hope you all have been doing well, and have a fantastic evening! :-)
Well, I have now completed my three days of Orientation, beginning with Traditions on Friday, then Our California Story on Saturday, finishing up with Welcome to Entertainment today. I have my On the Job Training schedule, and when that is done, I am getting trained on working World of Color!!!! SO EXCITED!!!!
Good morning MW family! I just had to share that the count down is on! I am only 9 days away from "Traditions" and officially becoming a Disneyland Resort Stage Technician! :-D YAY!!!! Everyone have a magical day!!!!
Exciting news! As some of you may remember, back in January I applied for my dream job since I was 12 years old, to work in Disneyland's Tech Services Department, and I GOT IT!!!! I got the call today and I start on July 20th!!!! SO HAPPY!!!! I HAD to share with my MW family!!!! :-D
Hello all! :-)
Long time no post, I know. I'm kind of a slacker when it comes to this. I tend to read more often than not, and I forget about my phone when I'm at the parks. *blush*
Anyway, I wanted to share with you all some potentially GREAT news! I got a call from DL, the Tech Coordinator that does the hiring for DL Tech Services, and he said that they are going to be doing another hiring More...
I think my interviews went well, feel like I knocked them out of the park. Noe, to wait and see if I really did. If so, I should be hearing by the end of the week whether or not I am a new DL Tech Services Cast Member. Thank you all for your support and well wishes. We're almost there! :-)
Hello MWers, how's everyone doing? I just wanted to post and say "Hi". It's been a while for me. :-) Also, I'm pretty nervous, I have two interviews tomorrow for my dream job with DL Tech Services. I REALLY want this job. Sorry to take up space. I hope everyone is happy and healthy. Have a magical day! :-)
SO EXCITED!!!! I just HAD to tell my MW Family about this!!!! I have passed the online interview, and now have my in person interview on April 17th for a job in the Tech Services Department at DL!!!! This is my dream job since I was 12!!!! I had to tell you guys!!!! SO HAPPY!!!!
The waiting for my interview call for the Tech Services job at DL is killing me. I've gotten past the first step, the Skills Assessment Sheet, and I've got LOTS of folks pulling for me, even a guy that is pretty high up working in my behalf. I SO want this job. It's been my dream since I was 12 years old. Sorry for the random freak out. Just needed to get it out of my head, and the MW family is al More...
Hello MouseWait family. It's been awhile since I posted, but I've been checking in. :-) This post is more to get some nervous energy out, but also to put it out there for some support (prayers, good vibes, positive energy, etc...) and maybe some more tangible help.
As I've mentioned on here before, I am a theatrical lighting technician, and have always wanted to join the ranks at DL. Well, the More...
Hello all! Been a while since I said "Hi". I'm super excited! I got a new phone and can now do all the stuff on the Android version of MW, and my wife has finally joined the MouseWait Family!!!! Her name on here is ChristiMonson!!!!
I found this pretty interesting. Yesterday (November 3rd, 2011) the Disney Parks Blog posted an article about a house on property at Disneyland that was actually lived in after the park opened, and not by Walt and Family. Like I said, I found it interesting and I thought I'd share it with all of you. http://tinyurl.com/3gmz7r2
Groundbreaking for the Temple of the Forbidden Eye occurred in August 1993. More than 400 Imagineers worked on its design and construction. Tony Baxter led a core project team of nearly 100 Imagineers.
Several early concepts were considered for Indy including a walk-through adventure and a high-speed mine car adventure within a temple. To avoid a long queue, Imagineers even considered using Jungle Cruise launches to shuttle guests to the loading area. The team tested key show elements in a Burbank warehouse on a full-sized elevated track that resembled a freeway. This enabled the team to test set pieces, lighting, effects, transport clearances and motion profiles.
To create space for the 0.5-mile queue area and the 50,000-square-foot show building, an area of the former "Eeyore" parking lot was demolished, and the Monorail and Jungle Cruise attractions were rerouted. As I'm sure some of you know, an old Eeyore parking sign is hidden up in the rafters high above the projection room (in the queue). The sign pays homage to the Eeyore Parking Lot.
To watch some scenes from the opening ceremony:
Happy 19th birthday Indy!
Have you been on this attraction? If so, what is your favorite part or scene?
Thanks for reading and watching! Hope you all have a magnificent Monday!
