I might be biased (okay, I’m definitely biased), but working for Disney can be a pretty magical thing. The fact that I’ve been able to include sentences like the following in emails is rad to begin with:
- “I totally cried in the theater during the first 15 minutes of Up.” (this is true. sigh.)
- “An Ariel-themed vacation might take place in a seaside resort with plenty of vintage shopping … so she can add to her collection, of course!” (the more dinglehoppers to comb one’s hair with, the merrier)
- “Lumiere completes his mission to find the Beast true love … and is transformed back into a human.” (gahhh more tears, people!)
Then add in the fact that I help bloggers execute ideas like Little Mermaid Inspired Nails and 10 Parenting Lessons from Winnie the Pooh across Disney Family sites on a daily basis, and you’ve upped the level of awesomeness.
That doesn’t even touch upon another MAJOR perk : the potential for mixing work and play … and seriously enchanted business trips. Yes, I’m talking the happiest places on Earth. Earlier this month, Andrea Zimmerman (Senior Manager, Blogs & Social Media) and I were lucky enough to travel to Disneyland in sunny California … for work. Thanks to the wonderful Disney Parks team, bloggers from across Babble and Spoonful were able to join us with their families. Some highlights include a special performance of Fantasy Faire and a viewing of World of Color to end the day. Oh, and riding Splash Mountain alone … but I’ll get to that in the photos.
