    “You get to constantly be moving, walking around, and meeting new people. That’s what I really like is to walk around and of course do my task first, but then I get to talk to anyone. You get to know their story.” Zackary, Custodial
    “Coming into the Cultural Representative Program from Norway, there were a lot of things I didn’t know. You just have to come in with an open mind. We become like a family here. You get to learn new things about yourself. You learn how to handle difficult situations, and have fun doing it.” Anja, Attractions
    “My favorite part of my role is the closing show. We get a big rush of guests who have just seen Fantasmic! During that time, I get to say goodnight to all the guests, I get to play with lightsabers with the kids—it’s really a fun time wishing everyone a great night and safe travels home.” Hayden, Main Entrance Operations
    “I’ve done three College Programs. I got to see different aspects of what makes the magic happen here at Disney. It made me want to come back for more and see what else I could explore in different areas of the park.” John, Quick Service Food & Beverage
    “Part of the magical experience for guests is getting their MagicBand. At the front desk, we distribute MagicBands to families who have it delivered here to the resort. It’s very empowering for me to know that I’m able to make people happy during their stay.” Liliana, Front Desk
    “One of the magical moments I had during my Program was when a sweet little boy made a dessert and he left one just for me. As he was leaving, he said ‘I left that for you with extra sprinkles!’” Rylee, Seater
