Hello and welcome to the Quillegible blog of happiness! If you don’t know what quillegible means, it basically means that it’s a tremendous compliment to a writer by calling their writing a gift from the Gods. (Look at the website title if you don’t believe me!)
Oh. My. Good. Lord. My Disney College Program experience officially begins 10 days from now, and guess how excited I am? (Hint: a little more than the Linda Belcher up there)
This is the opportunity of a lifetime and I am not only honored at this chance but also extremely nervous and anxious because my itinerary has yet to show up (#latearrivalprobs).
So, to pass the time, I will be doing an additional daily DCP blog that’ll sort of tie in to my other Disney blog posts but will also be separate because it’s a countdown series. Today, since there are only 10 days left before my check-in, I decided it would be appropriate to list my Top 10 places that I would love to work at. Since I’m a Seater, I’m particularly excited about the restaurants at Walt Disney World since there are so many of them. Now I don’t know of any horror stories about any of the restaurants, and this list is strictly built by my opinion, so if you find yourself disagreeing with me, I apologize in advance.
10. 50’s Prime Time Café
The thing about all these restaurants at Walt Disney World is that it’s not just the food but the overall experience and the story they tell. After the World War II era of the 1940’s, the 1950’s has always been known as a decade of prosperity because Wall Street was finally able to crawl out of the Depression of the 1930’s and become an economic pillar in the United States again. 50’s Prime Time Café tells the story and gives us the experience of that prosperous decade that is otherwise known as the inspiration behind every primary school sock hop. To be a Seater here would be a fun bash in Fat City!
9. Olivia’s Café
I’ll admit…I had no idea there was a place called Olivia’s Café until I looked it up! Now I can only hope that I work there just so I could say I did! Now I don’t know if they have Seaters at this particular restaurant, but I really hope they do!
8. Rainforest Café
Rainforest Café is a national chain of restaurants, so it’s certainly not unfamiliar to me. However, the experience of the restaurant where there’s a rainstorm every 30 minutes is nothing short of enchanting to all the kids who come to eat, and it’d be great to experience that as a Seater.
7. Victoria and Albert’s
I’ve heard so many good things about Victoria and Albert’s that the only bad thing is its price. Being a Seater in this restaurant would call for grace, a pleasant smile, and elegance. Working here would feel like working at Buckingham Palace!
6. Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Resaturant
I dined here once with my family and we had a great time. The food was decent, but everyone was so nice and it was a lot of fun feeling like we were actually in a drive-in theater! To be a Seater here would be a fun experience when I guide people into the restaurant and I see their faces.
5. Club Villain at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Because it’s a Club, I don’t know if they need a Seater, but if they do, sign me up! Club Villain is deliciously evil from the drinks to the villains themselves, so being a Seater and having the chance to interact with this kind of place would be a barrel of laughs! Evil laughs, that is!
Ohana means family, so if I work at Ohana, I’d get the real feel for family, which isn’t that what Disney is all about? Plus, someone probably has to clean up after Stitch’s messes, and I’d volunteer for that!
3. 1900 Park Fare
1900 Park Fare is a classic luncheon place that would be a dream to work at, because I would be the first face the guests see when they walk through the door. Plus, I love that classic 1900’s experience, much like I love the vibe of the 50’s!
2. Akershus Royal Banquet Hall
And Number 1 place for me to work is…
1. Crystal Palace
This is the place where I first met Pooh Bear and fell in love with Disney. This is a very personal reason for me to work there, but honestly, that’s the love that’s gotten me into the College Program, and it’d be fitting for me to work at the place that started it all for me.
Now I may get into one of these places, or I may get into none of them. These are only my top restaurants I’d love to work at, but at the end of the day, I get to work at one of the most magical places on Earth, and that’s more than enough for me.
Where are the places you’d love to work at Disney?
