The first week or my program was hectic, I attended two trainings in the first few days. The first was Disney traditions, which consisted of everything and anything Disney related, the second day was food and safety training. After these first two training days, I received my nametag! I spent the rest of my time moving in, running to the grocery store, and learning more about my roommates. We were living in a three-bed room apartment, each room had a bathroom and a walk in closet attached. They were very nice and came furnished with just about everything we would need. Our building is located right next to the pool, workout center, and laundry facilities, which my roommates and I were excited about. My next day of training was located at the Grand Floridian, which was an orientation day, followed by the introduction to my workplace.
My job at 1900 Park Fare is a seater and greeter. My job consists of checking guests in at the podium and confirming information such as party size, party mix, ages of guests in the party, and if they are staying at a Disney Resort. My other possible jobs I may have to do include seating guests at the appropriate tables, or folding napkins and stuffing silverware for the following morning shift. My job is relatively easy; I do work with a lot of other college program students from throughout the world as well as several from within the United States, which was an awesome learning experience.
