#4 - Cast Member Stories Series - Interview with Walt Disney World College Program Alumni Katie Fisher
This episode starts our Cast Member stories series. I knew when I started this podcast that I wanted to include personal stories and experiences from disney cast members. We all know that the attractions and characters are great, but it's the cast members that are the real magic makers.
Walt Disney himself knew this and was deeply dedicated to the ideas of service and show. That is why at each of the kingdoms around the world you'll find a casting agency door with the quote "it takes people to make the dream a reality." It is an everlasting tribute to each and every cast member making magic around the world. See if you can find it on main street next time you visit!
For this inaugural episode of the series I'm joined by my longtime friend Katie Fisher from Pictures and Postcards Travel and we sit down and talk about her experience on the Walt Disney World College Program in fall 2001.
We talk about how she found out about the program, what inspired her to apply and what her role was like.
She recounts how 9/11 affected her program, and how, with a little Disney magic she reconnected with a long lost childhood friend.
