Who loves Disneyworld?

Who wouldn’t want to go to Disney for work? I was asked by my bosses the other week to travel to Orlando for one of our very special on-the-road editions of Deals and Steals weekly with our GMA contributor Tory Johnson. Normally I would not mind going to a warm climate and getting out of the office for a little bit. Unfortunately, it meant no fun and all work as well as traveling to Florida and coming back to NY in 24 hours.

As I get off the plane in cloudy Orlando, I leave my winter coat on because it’s not so sunny and warm as I thought it would be.When I get to the hotel, I am presented with a Disney bracelet that allows me into my room. It was very cool technology that I have not experienced yet.

When going to the rehearsal at Disney Springs I made sure all my props arrived for the segment and had tables and signs for displays for product. Then I got to escape for a hour or two to Magic Kingdom and went on Space Mountain. Did I mention I hate rollercoasters? It definitely gave me a adrenaline rush for the rest of the night.



The next morning, I woke up at 4am to be on site by 4:30am to prep with the crew and stage manager before Tory Johnson and audience arrived. Usually at GMA we have a whole team of stagehands to put together product and displays but this time it was all on me, and only me. I was a complete crazy person trying to prep everything against the clock and work on appropriate copy for show.

We were featuring products that included a heat tech clothing collection, assorted bags, pouches and wallets, assorted bracelets, labeled plates, coloring and patch kits and Disney themed sandals. The deals started at $5 and up to 57% off. We even had Mickey and Santa Goofy join us for the fun. It isn’t Disney without Mickey. We were promoting the holiday edition of the brand new Disney Springs park where they keep updating with new retail shops and eateries. After a multi-year makeover and expansion, they even offer a beautiful Christmas Tree Trail with Disney-themed trees and lots of fun for the family.

Traveling might seem fun but it’s good to be back at home in New York!

    Confession: I’ve never gone to Disneyworld before! I really want to though, I’ve heard so much about Epcot Theme Park and how amazing it is. I hope you at least enjoyed Space Mountain! 😛

    Wow this sounds like a fun and stressful experience at the same time. I’m sure you learned a lot by doing it and you proved yourself what you are capable to do in such a short period of time 🙂
