Making Every Moment Magical
Disney accepted Samantha into the college program and assigned her to work in some of the least desirable places in the parks: the Studio Backlot Tour, Frozen Funland, and a FastPass kiosk in Tomorrowland. But she had other ideas...
Typical days for Samantha included loading guests into a tram bound for Catastrophe Canyon in Hollywood Studios, making sure the youngest guests didn't eat the snow at Frozen Funland, and dealing with irate guests unable to get last-minute FastPasses for the most popular rides in Magic Kingdom (back when paper FastPasses were a thing).
Where's the pixie dust in that?
So, Samantha made her own pixie dust, in the form of magical moments for guests. Lots and lots of magical moments, even if it meant breaking Disney rules (and fortunately not getting caught!).
In her secret cast member diary, Samantha tells the delightful tale of how she got her pixie dust together and turned a punch-clock job at Walt Disney World into magic.
If you've ever wondered what it would be like not just to visit a Disney theme park but to work in one, the "Earning Your Ears" series is your E-ticket!
