Get to know our new team of Associate Fairy Godmothers through their responses in the following interview. First up is Amanda!
Q: What school did you go to and what did you study?
A: I went to Mississippi College where I majored in Public Relations with a minor in Marketing.
Q: Tell me about your current/former experience as a Disney Cast Member and what you've learned from it.
A: I started my Disney career in the Disney College Program working in quick-service food at Hollywood Studios in 2017. Since then, I have worked in all four theme parks, Typhoon Lagoon, Disney Springs, and resorts! The highlight of my Disney career so far was working as a VIP Tour Guide! It was the most amazing experience. I've learned so much from honing my quick problem solving skills to time management and leadership skills.
Q: What was the most memorable and magical experience that you've had as a Cast Member?
A: My most memorable experience as a Cast Member is making magic for my guests on tour. I rode the same rides every day, but seeing the guests enjoy Disney either for the first time or in a different way was so magical! I made so many new friends working in VIP Tours that I will cherish forever!
Q: What are you most excited for as an Associate Fairy Godmother with rêverie events?
A: Building new relationships and learning new skills!
Q: Describe YOUR dream wedding. (Budget and partner's opinion are not an option)
A: My DREAM wedding would be near the beach and/or by the water! I just want all my favorite people in the same place at one time on a happy day.
