One Fine Day of a Disney Intern...

One fond memory I have while being a cast member on the Walt Disney World College Program in the spring of 1999 is the day some of my fellow cast member friends and I went pool-hopping to the various resorts on Disney property! The four of us friends set out early on a day we were all scheduled off from work. We left Vista Way, one of the Disney College Program's housing, by way of the cast member transportation, and headed toward the Magic Kingdom's Ticket and Transportation System (TTS.) From there, we boarded the Monorail, which took us to the Polynesian. We enjoyed the pool there, drank some pineapple juice, lounged out, and when we were finished with being at the Polynesian, we boarded the Monorail again which took us to our next stop, The Grand Floridian! This, by far, was the best swimming pool on the property, and we all had a great time. When we were finished enjoying The Grand Floridian's pool, we got back on to the Monorail, went back to TTS and boarded a bus which took us to Coronado Springs' pool. And when we were finished there, we got back on a bus which took us to Epcot. We walked through the park, exited through the back entrance in the World Showcase, between the Great Britain and France pavilions, and we took a boat to the Yacht and Beach Resort. The four of us splished and we splashed in the pool there, and it was really enjoyable! By the time we were finished there, it was nearly 3:00, and we decided to take the guest bus back to the Magic Kingdom so we could get onto the short line for Splash Mountain (because most guests watch the 3:00 parade, and we knew the line would be short.) We had our bathing suits anyway, so we wanted to see how many times we could ride my favorite ride, Splash Mountain. We enjoyed more of the Magic Kingdom, of course stopping at Casey's on Main Street to get delicious hot dogs, and we decided to call it a day. We took our Vista Way bus back home. After spending so much time in the warm, Florida sun, my friends and I showered, relaxed a little and then geared up for one of many Vista Way parties! That was such a fun day... I miss being on the College Program. Altogether, it was the best time of my life: Living, Learning and Earning at one of the most magical places on Earth. :) -Monika
