Have a magical day!
1 Day to Go!
Tomorrow begins the adventure! Six months of counting down, countless hours of re-evaluating my life and watching Disney vlogs, all boil down to tomorrow. The true test of my blogging and vlogging abilities will be tested over the next 12 months.
So as I'm not sure when exactly I'll be next checking-in with you, thank you to you for reading my blog thus far! This blog has kept me somewhat sane through the wait and know I will of course do my best to keep it alive for those of you interested in following my adventure.
I haven't been this excited in a long time and I'm utterly thrilled that I'm able to get this amazing opportunity again. My one wish over the next year is to not take any moment for granted. I know all to well that the year will ultimately come to an end. So, to future Adam if you're reading... Live every moment to the fullest and bring back some killer merch!
Just 19 hours now until I take off! Both of my suitcases are overweight so I'm ready to pay a little extra when checking-in but other than that I'm pretty happy that I'm all set to go!
Have a magical day!

If you're a little confused by what on earth is going on as my story is a pretty tricky one to keep up with, head on over to The Story So Far for a quick catch-up on what on earth is going on. If this is also the first post you're seeing from this blog, feel free to scroll down and fill your boots in the blogging I've been doing since November 2016!
After much speculation from many people asking me, I am indeed taking part in the Cultural Representative Program for a second time. It's been in the works for some time now but I've avoided making it common knowledge outside of my personal circle for two reasons:
All-in-all I'm incredibly excited about going back. It was only three months after I left my first program that I knew I'd love to go back and now I'm in a position where I actually can!
So please do catch-up with my chatter in the blog and look out for more updates coming to Adam Does Disney as I prepare for my program.
Have a magical day!

Today isn't the best day. After staying up all night to hopefully see the first female president be elected, I actually ended up seeing Donald Trump get elected. To say he goes against most of my beliefs and hopes for the world is an understatement and a half.
I literally didn't sleep after that. I was up the whole night worrying about the country I'm planning on moving to and whether I actually want to anymore. I know Walt Disney World won't really change, but the harsh reality is that I'm not moving to Walt Disney World, I'm moving to Florida, a state that actually helped him become elected *eyeroll*.
However, after some serious thinking and talking to my family, I have decided that I should still plan to go. If for any reason the situation in America becomes to tense for comfort, I may genuinely consider not going but right now, how much would the president really effect my day-to-day program... not a lot. I have no reason to pull out of the amazing opportunity of moving to Walt Disney World. Not yet at least.
Have a somewhat magical day.

Hello you lovely lot.... AGAIN! It's certainly been a while since I've been blogging! For those of you who have not come across me before... Hello, I'm Adam and I'm taking part in Disney's Cultural Representative Program (again).
A little catch-up on the story so far: In 2012, I applied for the Disney Cultural Representative Program (CRP) and took part in the program March 2013 - March 2014 (What is the program? Click here for more info). When I came home, it's easy to say that I had caught the Disney bug and in 2014 I applied to take part in the program for a second time. I was lucky enough to be offered a second program and was due to begin my second program in August 2015. However, about 6 months before I was due to leave for my program, I landed a job at the Walt Disney Company head office in London and decided to cancel my second program whilst I explored this adventure.
After 18 months in the company office, I decided that it was my time to chase a new adventure and I am now pleased to say that as of March 13th 2017, I will be beginning my actual second program! Now chances are you're reading this when I've already begun or I'm pretty close to starting my program, despite writing this post in November 2016!
I basically learnt my lesson from 2015 when I had to cancel my planned second program and then explain why I didn't go back to the world. I'm quiet happy in keeping it my business until I actually need to tell people this time round.
So I of course plan to document my adventure right up until I leave and whilst I'm on my program. The plan is to also create more advice videos for my Disney CRP specific YouTube channel (Adam Does Disney) and release them once I'm ready.
In any case, thank you for taking the time to come and check out my ramblings. I hope you enjoy reading about my new experience with Disney International Programs.
Have a Magical Day!
