The Ultimate Disney College Program Bucket List

The Ultimate Disney College Program Bucket List

*Quits college for a semester to work for Walt Disney*


Less than two months and I'll officially be a Walt Disney World Cast Member!! I'm so excited but super nervous to live alone on the other side of the country. So to keep my mind off of everything I'm going to be missing at home, I came up with a short and to-able Disney College Program bucket list. It's everything I want to do during my program, but it's things that regular people can do on their Disney trip too, so I'm sharing it.

1. Four parks in one day.

Challenge accepted.

2. Take a picture with the Mickey Balloons.

3. Meet as many characters as you can.


4. Get as many autographs as you can.


5. Stay in the parks from open to close.


6. Visit the parks alone.


As scary as it may seem, I'm going to try to enjoy the parks alone.

7. Obviously get a picture in front of the castle.


8. See as many shows/parades as possible.


Okay so maybe you aren't going to Paris but Disney World in Florida has this too lol.



10. Character breakfast.


What better way to start your day than with the most important meal with your favorite characters. But obviously look happier than this little girl.

11. Eat around the world.


Maybe you'll have a Lady and the Tramp moment.

12. Eat at every restaurant.

Dinner and a show anyone? But maybe not every restaurant, considering Be Our Guest is just one that has like a 4+ month reservation.

13. Ride every ride, no matter what.


14. Take a picture on Main Street when it's empty.


15. Find as many hidden mickeys as you can.

16. Take a picture with all the cool walls as backgrounds.

Basic but necessary.

17. Resort hopping!


Bonus: Find/meet as many celebrities as you can.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.

Best 3 Gelato Stops In Rome

A young person's guide to best gelato in Rome


Italy is known for their history and their food. Some of the best food in the world is found in Italy. While traveling throughout the country, I found that I enjoyed myself the most in Rome. After eating my body weight in gelato, I feel that I have found the three best, quality, and authentic gelato spots in the city. Follow me on this journey as I describe the delectable delights I found in the city.

1. Giolitti

While this may be a typical tourist destination after Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck's iconic visit, Giolitti truly is some of the best gelato in the city. Around the corner from a busy alley, Giolitti sits nestled on the thin side road, Via degli Uffici del Vicario. This store holds a variety of sweet, tart and fruity flavors that are satisfying for all guests. Personally, I have a slight aversion to dairy, but at Giolitti, there is the best non-dairy chocolate gelato I have ever had. Even the non-dairy flavor is robust, thick and creamy just like the authentic other flavors. For the best variety, quality and taste, Giolitti is the significant winner. However, Giolitti gets noticeably bust and hectic which may be a turn-off to some visitors, but the taste does outweigh these slight inconveniences.

TIP: at Giolitti, you pay before ordering. Remember to stop at the register by the door, pay for your cup or cone, and take your receipt to the glass!

2. Frigidarium

Two words: chocolate shell. Frigidarium is unique in the sense that they offer a dark or white chocolate hard shell blanket over your flavor of choice. This gives the gelato an irresistible crunch and a deeper flavor. While the gelato itself may not be quite authentic and more similar to ice cream, you cannot go wrong with stopping here. Hidden on a side road adjacent to Piazza Navona, Frigidarium is a small store that gets crowded quick, but is quite worth the wait!

TIP: be careful when eating the shell, once the gelato begins melting it spills violently out the sides of the cup or cone causing a disaster.

3. Giuffrè Gelateria

Giuffre is a hidden gem. In the depths of Trastevere, Giuffre holds some of the best food I have consumed in my entire life. At Giuffre, they do something innovative, beautiful, and incredible. They have two chocolate fountains, one white and one milk. If you order a cone, the sophisticatedly dressed employee will ask if you would like chocolate INSIDE OF YOUR CONE. They fill the cone with melted, Italian chocolate. Then, you get to choose your flavors, varying from fruit flavors, non-dairy dark chocolate, or traditional flavors. While the menu may be in Italian, do not fear. This simply guarantees the fact that you are in for the best gelato experience of your life.

Next time you find yourself in Rome, use this guide to make your dessert decision easy. All of the places listed are easy to find on maps and navigable for English speakers!
