In the fall of 2009, I moved to Orlando for the Disney College Program to work in the costuming department. I loved it so much, I applied to extend my internship and continue on as a CP. My dreams came true when I was offered the extension in the role of Character Performer. When my program ended in May of 2010, I still wasn’t ready to leave the magic of Disney, so I continued on as a seasonal employee and worked as many hours as I could. In January of 2011 I made the difficult decision to leave Florida to finish my degree. I spent every school break back in Orlando, hanging with my good friends Goofy and Tigger so they wouldn’t forget about me while I was away. I finally graduated in December of 2012, and the first thing I did when I moved to Florida was go to the Casting Center to put my name on the list for full-time. Two days later, I was devastated to find out that I had not met the seasonal requirements for the year by a matter of less than 20 hours. My first month back in Orlando was spent unemployed, desperately looking for any kind of job. On February 4, 2013, I was hired into attractions at Universal. Over the past year, I’ve had my ups and downs, but I managed to become the guest service representative for our venue and I will become a trainer on March 21. Through all this, however, I never gave up on my dream of returning to work for the mouse. I have attended countless entertainment auditions at Disney and had my name put into the pool over and over. It seems that performing just isn’t in the cards for me at this point in time, but I am beyond excited to announce that I will be returning to the Disney family next month as a Character Attendant! It’s been a long journey, but I can’t wait to rejoin the magical company that has always felt like home to me.

“The character design of Flynn came from the process which was called the “hot man meeting” by Nathan Greno and Byron Howard, during which they set up a meeting with all of the female employees of the studio in one room and asked them for their opinions of what made a man good looking in order to create Flynn’s character design with features such as eye color, hair color and style and body type. Video footage showed concept art and photos of various male celebrities, including Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, Brad Pitt, David Beckham and Gene Kelly on the walls of the room. Director Byron Howard said they wanted to make Flynn “the most handsome, most attractive male lead Disney has ever had.”

"The hot man meeting" is now my second favorite animation design story, after the one about how Pixar animators working on the Dug team for Up had “fat dog day” where they basically went to a shelter and were like “please bring out your fattest dogs,” and then they hung out with the fattest jolliest available dogs, all day.
