Where have I been?
Tuesdsay I did Universal and I loved it.
Some of their rides are just so awesome (Mummy, Spiderman, MIB, Hulk) and some of them are just outdated (T2, Jaws, ET) and some I just hated (Shrek).
I was so scared during the Mummy, especially being it was my first ride of the day and that I had no idea what to suspect during the ride but I loved it every single part about it. It's a real well designed coaster/ride and recommand it to anyone who hasnt been on it before.
Spiderman was real impressive too, The 3d Aspect, the part that makes you feel like you're actuallly being webbed up the ceiling.
Men in Black - Jessica and Matt kicked Carissa and I's butt. We sat in the back when they sat in the front and their scores were around 300,000 while we barely had 50,000 each. Overall a fun ride and defnitely something I can ride all day to improve my score.....which I did during the 3 times we went on the ride.
Hulk - First time on the Hulk, It temp went down for a few minutes while we are about to get launched so just imagine sitting there, looking straight at the launch where you will be launched 0 to 50 into a giant loop. My hands were sweaty holding onto the bars.
Dudley Do Right - Defnitely not as good as Splash Mountain but you do get wetter. Too much! I was soaked for the rest of the night and I hated it!
Enough about Universal though....
Yesterday at work, was a welcome event to all of the CPs at EPCOT. We had to dress business casual and went to the Seas VIP Room. They had a lot of people talk and give away prizes while they fed us. I looked into becoming a campus rep since my school had no idea what the CP was before I did it. I even looked into the Professional Internship booth as well. Then afterwards, everyone else had to go to work while the Custodials from Future World and World Showcase had a fun day.
We did Custodial Trivia which was fun, our team name was Odyssey Out (it refers to your assignment for the day), like if you were signed Odyssey Out, you would have to deep clean or maintain the Odyssey Outside restrooms! Our team wasn't that good but the rules weren't fair to begin with anyway lol. Then we were introduced to all our managers and their stories here at Disney. Some of them have been with the company for 35 years, it's amazing! And they bounce around the parks, some worked in Merch/Ops/Food & Bev and are now in Custodial. After listening to them, it really makes me want to work full time for Disney in a Management Role.
Then they sent us on our own in a Scavenger Hunt, like to get an autograph from a character, collect all 4 time guides from the parks, name 3 species of fish at the Seas pavillion. They also gave us 3 fastpasses that were good for Soarin, Test Track and Mission Space. How awesome is that! And remember we all got paid during that trip.
I know this is probably your first flight...and it's mine too...ha, ha
Rain upon that planet Earth. And they rain ... and rain ... and rain. The deluge.
