Hi

Hi I am Amanda. I came to this site so I could be well informed on what people think about Disney then try to answer any questions or debunk rumors if possible. I am from Pennsylvania but recently moved to Florida to have a career with Disney. I have been with the company since August and I am in love with it more then ever. I also believe in the magic of Disney even more now. I am also here because I am a huge Disney fanatic and want to know what's currently going on the company.

Hi Mandy and welcome . There is quite a few of us from Pennsylvania. What part do you hail from? And as you can see we are all crazy about Disney. I hope we can impart some wisdom and if you can do the same from your perch in the Wonderful World of Disney it will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to Walt Disney World for Grownups Mandy. We are always happy to have another CM among us. Scrappy (my DW) and I are from SE PA also. Actually PA is supposed to be one of the most popular states for Disney World lovers. Hope we can help you get well informed. What particular part of Disney are you involved in, rides, shows , Imagineering, food, hospitality, resort?

Hi Amanda. I am new to the Forum too but wanted to welcome you also. I would love to get a job there. I have always thought I would rather have a job at a resort than in the parks. I didn't want to learn all the all the behind the scenes details because I was afraid it would ruin the magic. How is all of that for you? I do envy your working at DW.
