A DINO IN HER PIXIE DUST In this Disney College Program diary, New England girl Brittany DiCologero must make the best of a less-than-ideal role: running games and selling merchandise in Animal Kingdom’s DinoLand USA. With tired guests, strict training, and backstage surprises, this might be her extinction level event.
The “Earning Your Ears” series chronicles the experiences of young people from around the country and around the world who leave home, often for the first time, to live and work in Walt Disney World or Disneyland for several months, or even longer.
Each book in the “EARS” series makes you an honorary Cast Member as the author takes you behind Disney’s pixie dust curtain to learn things the Mouse would prefer you didn’t know, and what no guidebook will tell you, including how the theme parks operate from the inside out and what Disney employees do when they’re not wishing you a magical day.
Former Disney World Cast Member Brittany DiCologero shares:
The ins and outs of Disney Merchandise, as taught by a fanatical, ninja-like trainer
The silly Disney rules for making sure no one is offended, including why there’s no such thing as a “ball” at the DinoLand basketball game
The ups and down of working carnival games with appearances by screaming guests, colorful costumes, and Make-A-Wish kids
The most honest advice for acing the Disney College Program application, selecting non-venomous roommates, and surviving Disney training
If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like not just to visit a Disney theme park but to work in one, the “Earning Your Ears” series is your E-ticket!
