Hello everyone!

I was a WDW Cast Member from 1990 - 1997.  Now I live in Houston, TX with my wife and son (5 months old).  

Every once in awhile, I need to get my WDW "fix" and this seemed like a good place. :)

We last visited WDW in Feb. of 2000--my wife's first time.  We can't wait to go back, but it will probably be awhile with the little guy here now.  Can't wait to take him, but as many of you know, WDW is awesome to go to without kids too.  ;)

Anyway, I will look forward to chatting to y'all!  

Thanks for the great site!

Jeff

Yoo Hoo, Jeff / Sweetums!

Sorry you had problems logging in at first, but I'm glad everything is working now. Welcome to the Disney Echo!

You might want to rethink putting off your next WDW until your 5 month old is older... Carol and I brought our DS when he was about that age and it was great! Remember, the Baby Care Centers are your friend.
:nod:

Thanks for joining the fun here, Jeff. Here's a welcoming gift of your own pair of Disney EchoEars:

Thanks for the warm welcomes!   :)

And for the ears, Rich! :cool:

As far as where I worked, I got to do a lot as I tried to figure out what I wanted to be when I "grew up".

Started in Studio Attractions (College Program)--Great Movie Ride, Star Tours

Then went into Studio Entertainment (Characters).

Next I worked front desk for the Contemporary.

Finally, I ended up at Disney Vacation Club (Advanced Sales Associate and then Member Services).

Oh, and for two weeks I worked at Pleasure Island--almost forgot--that was just until I got turned full time in Characters.

A really great experience.  I left at the end of '97, but still have very fond memories and it's opened up many doors for me.

:bigsmile:

Did you ever meet up with Sean Squier when you were a CM at the Great Movie Ride? He went on from there to create software for Disney (and is known from rec.arts.disney.parks as the founder of the "Future Disney Cabinet").

Wow!  :wwww:

Yes--Sean and I worked together on the College Program (Summer of '90) and actually hung out quite a bit.  We wrote a song parody about GMR called "Pre-Show Greeterville" sung to the tune of "Margaritaville" and recorded it at this Karaoke place.  I think I still have the tape somewhere....

We used to crack each other up going around quoting lines from the GMR.

"This is Alien.  You are with Sigourney Weaver aboard the spaceship Nostromo.  Something has gone wrong and somewhere in the ship a terrifying creature waits to claim it's next victim.  WARNING!!  Remain in your vehicle!  The area you are entering is extremely dangerous!!!"

"Putty Nose beat it!  You better lay low for awhile."


Memories.....flooding.....must......stop.....quoting....GMR......spiels..........  :crazy:

I'm glad to hear he is doing well.  What is "The Future Disney Cabinet"?  I am not all that familiar with newsgroups.  I always get intimidated.  Does he post here too?  Would love to catch up.

Well! As Sean is my friend and you're his friend, any friend of Sean's is a friend of mine, too!

Yes, Sean is here on the Disney Echo, but chooses to post anonyMOUSEly.

All your questions about the FDC can be found here.

Well, I hope he would still consider me a "friend" in spite of the fact that I am HORRIBLE about keeping in touch with people!  :oops:

Very interesting, the FDC.  So, like, I know the Eisner of the FDC.....Whoa!   :coolgrin:

Maybe he can use his pull to get me some sort of really great, high level position....yeah!!   :D

I could be like a Katzenberg or Ovitz!!!!.....uh.....on second thought......  :o

Is he still working for Disney and living in Orlando?

Man, that is so cool to hear about someone I used to work with.  I can't wait to reminisce about "pumpkin suits" and "crispy eggrolls"!

Thanks for the info!   :)
