You Know You're A Former Disney Cast Member When...
Character Central

This article is for anyone who has ever worked for The Mouse. While working for Disney, we operate by such a unique culture and set of rules that even after our time for Disney has come to an end, we still remember everything they taught us like it was yesterday.

1. The Disney Point

Even while you’re not at work, it’s still normal to point with two fingers or your whole hand.

2. It’s Normal For You To Start Conversations With “One Time At Disney”

Most of the stories you tell your friends and family are usually from your time while working for Disney.

3. You Tear Up At Disney Commercials

I don’t know about you, but anytime I see any Disney World commercial, I can’t help but tear up a little because of how much I miss it.

4. You Know What An Alpha-Unit Means

And other Disney lingo. Disney has a whole language just for their cast members to use with one another.

5. Magical Moments

Now whenever you see something heartwarming, you call it a magical moment without even realizing it.

6. It’s A Costume, Not A Uniform

And you cringe every time someone says “Disney Employee” and “Disney Uniform”

7. Hidden Mickeys

You can easily spot a Hidden Mickey, anywhere.

8. “When Is The 3 o’clock Parade?”

You cringe just hearing this question. This is seriously the most commonly asked question by guests.

9. Days Off = Free Time In The Parks

You miss being able to just go hang out in Magic Kingdom on your days off from work.

10. You Never Need A Map For The Parks

Seriously, you have all the parks memorized like the back of your hand.

11. Helping Guest Off The Clock

Even when you’re just hanging out in the parks off, you’ve still had guests come up to you looking for help. Whether it’s directions or having them take a picture for you. And it brings out the Cast Member in you.

12. You Get Really Creative To Answer Guests’ Questions

“Why is there a line coming from Cinderella Castle?” Well that’s because Peter Pan drew a line in the sky so Tinkerbell doesn’t get lost while flying!

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
