Life is great when you have someone to share it with–a friend, a significant other, a colleague. The shared experience can be a powerful one. I’ve had so many amazing Disney shared experiences with my children, my husband and dear friends–both old and new.

I’ve gushed in the past about my pride in being a tour guide and how much I adore all of the women and men I worked with, but it bares repeating again. My five years at Disneyland were among some of the happiest, most amazing times in my life. I learned more about life and relationships and how to conduct myself professionally than any of my college classes ever taught. I learned how to create magic for guests and how to get along with coworkers. I learned how to earn a dollar and what it meant to shift change, ADO, and walk around Disneyland in heels for eight hours. I experienced a vest too tight, a skirt too itchy, and how to spot knee socks worn by Goofy while still at the costuming window. And the best part of it all is that I know all of the other plaid did too. Our shared experience is nothing short of amazing.
