Recapping: Monday, December 7, 2009.
We met at 8:00am for a Private Breakfast in Grand Republic A at the Contemporary Resort Conference Center. There, on a large table, were the surprises that we had all brought for Laura, Leanne and Tina. As shown in a previous post, these were items brought from our home towns as a “Thank You” to these wonderful ladies for making our dreams come true.
Here’s the set-up:
The basket in the middle was for the staff who helped make our weekend so amazing.

As seen here, Laura was thrilled with Kathie’s gorgeous stained glass Moms Panel creation, and Leanne was enthralled by it as well. Note to my buddy, Kathie: You still have me on your “waiting list”, right?! 😉
Tina, Laura and Leanne — three incredibly sweet and amazing ladies. I’m SO blessed to have them in my life now.

After breakfast, it was time for our Computer Training! We were all very excited for the chance to learn the new system that we would using for the upcoming year. It would be our window to the world…our way to answer guests questions and help them make the most of their Magical Disney vacations. For me, this was one of the highlights of the trip. I had been dreaming of helping Guests for several years now, and to learn to navigate the tools necessary to be able to accomplish this…was pretty exciting to me.
We spent several hours becoming comfortable with the computer program. Somewhere in the middle of it all, we watched a clip from Disney’s (upcoming at the time) movie: “The Princess and The Frog”. It was a fun diversion…and a perfect lead in for a surprise…
