Hello, Mouseketeers! I know I haven't been updating much, but I have been super busy. Today's post is going to be about training. So far, I have had three days: Traditions, Food and Beverage Basics, and Once Upon a Time... Is Now!

I've already talked about Traditions, so let's talk about Food and Beverage Basics. Food and Beverage Basics is a four and a half hour training session for people doing food and beverage. If you are not food and beverage, you will have training in whatever your field is, and it will be roughly the same amount of time. Food and Beverage Basics starts out with everyone gathering in a room and discussing what it means to be a member of the Food and Beverage team at Disney. 1/3 of all Disney employees are part of the Food and Beverage team, so it is quite an important role. After the discussion, there was a question and answer period. Following that, we all went to the computer lab and watched e-learning videos about guest relations, food and beverage preparation and storage, and other things. Quite a painless day.

Once Upon a Time... Is Now! is a walking tour of the Magic Kingdom. Again, if you do not work in Magic Kingdom, you will have a walking tour of your facility, but it will not be called Once Upon a Time... Is Now! During our tour, we learned secrets about Magic Kingdom (Notice the windows on Main Street that say M.T. Lott next time you visit!), toured the Utilidor again, had a meeting in a conference hall over Casey's Corner on Main Street, rode the Haunted Mansion and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, watched more e-learning videos (this time about workplace safety, etc), and got our costumes.

I start on location training tomorrow. I can't wait!
