Today I had errands to run in the morning and then I went right to work.  I was very excited because I got to work the pool!  I worked it with the new college program girl who arrived when I was in Wisconsin. Luckily for me, they were having a cookout for us employees so we all got to take our break from 6pm-7pm and feast.  They had hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, macaroni salad, chili, baked beans, and salad with dressing from the luau.  It was so good!  We all had seconds.  They also had cake which I didn’t save room for.  I still do not know why they had a party, but I wish they would do that more often.  It was difficult to go back to work afterwards though because I felt like I needed a nap.  Our managers also gave away some old Disney employee Christmas ornaments so I got one from 2012 and one from 2013.

The pool was very quiet.  It was easy to tell that this time of year is not particularly busy for Disney.  Everything went well until the end of the night.  I didn’t realize the pool hours had changed while I was away so when they closed down at 10pm instead of the usual 11pm I was unprepared.  I still finished with everything by 11pm but I would have done things a lot differently if I would have known that we were closing an hour earlier.  On the way out, our leader gave us leftovers from the party and a Disney calendar for the rest of 2016 and all of 2017.  I will definitely hang that up back in Wisconsin. 🙂
