    As our Four Keys Basics guy put it: “Andy is the cast member who is remembered for the green zone and for having the tightest shirt possibly allowed.”

    Congrats on attractions for Splash Mountain, mine was technically attractions(yeah fireworks). I was Main Street Ops/PAC in 2010 so I am familiar with the Frontierland Parade setup/teardown as well as the backstage parade areas. Does that mean if they've delegated the role to area locals now that as there isn't a nighttime parade at the moment?

    Oh so jealous!!! Initially if I could have picked an area, it would have been Main Street Ops (because PAC seems like such a good fit for me), and the costumes are so cute. But I love how Frontierland is just very... relaxed in its theming. Not relaxed as in policies, but it provides a relaxing environment (I love the instrumental country music.)

    And you are correct! Besides the Halloween parade, currently there is no night parade. I get PAC trained in about a week, so more on that later.

    BOY HOWDY has time flown.

    I work an average of 50+ hours a week, so that plus grad apps has meant that u have virtually zero time for fun social-media-y stuff.

    To give the short list, I am now a fully trained cast member at Splash Mountain (five days of training, one day of assessment), PAC certified (first party PAC on Sunday!), and have attended MNSSHP and Wild Africa Trek!

    I also have my certified Mousters in Animal Science. Hurray!

    More details to come... at some point. But I’m really back because I wanted to share:

    I think I was just audited by George Kalogridis?

    New update!

    My hours have dropped to about 40 a week since things are slowing down, so I’ve taken this opportunity to do some fun things!

    The first fun thing is to get my creative side out by painting some pottery. I stumbled across the place (Sandcastle club at Beach Club, but they have it at the other former drop-off centers too), and spent a solid 5 days there painting various things.

    Like a flamingo plate (1 hr)

    A Rapunzel figure (my friend painted Belle and I helped with the details)

    (Rapunzel took about 5 hours)

    Annnnnd (I had to travel to Boardwalk to get this piece) a Tink Trinket Box! (8 hrs of work)

    She got chipped and had some features smidge during glazing, but I can fix them with a sharpie. I can’t fix that judgemental gaze though.

    I also am working my way through the tours, and did Dolphins in Depth!

    That’s it for now! I wasn’t chosen for the animal behavior internship, but I’m still in the running for conservation education. My fingers are crossed that this journey will continue another 6 months!
