My Disney Dream Job

Disney's Wedding Pavilion,
May 1997
I think maybe most of us have had a thought or two of what we would consider our "Disney Dream Job."  There are certainly plenty of Disney careers to choose from.  Of course, I started thinking of my favorite attractions, but then realized at some, my job would be loading and unloading guests from dream boats or pirate ships.  I wasn't so sure that would be something I would want to do all day long every day.  Then, I started thinking about some of my favorite live shows, but that idea quickly was dismissed since I have no acting, singing or dancing skills that need to be displayed beyond the walls of this house.  But then it hit me, what is one job, day after day, that gives me the opportunity to help people create the most magical moments and work on a very personal level with the guests?  A Disney Wedding Specialist with a slight twist.

My Disney dream job would be working to help create the perfect dream come true wedding for brides and grooms from around the world.  Not only would I be doing something I love - planning and organizing - in a place I love, but I would be getting to know the guests I work with very well.  Whether planning an intimate gathering or an over the top celebration in a resort, a theme park or at the Wedding Pavilion, I know I would love the challenge of creating the storybook wedding of the couple's dreams.  Besides, how great would it be to have Franck's Bridal Studio as your "conference" room when meeting with the bride and groom?

Here is the Little Mermaid cake I created
for Hayley's 2nd birthday - it's no wedding
cake, but it was great funto create!
Now here is the twist!  One of my absolute favorite hobbies is decorating cakes.  I am certainly no Cake Boss, but I would love to be a part of the team at the Grand Floridian that creates the wedding cake masterpieces that are created there.  Their cakes range from breathtaking to classic elegance to some of the most unique cakes I have ever seen.  I can also say that the best wedding cake I have eaten was at Disney's Grand Floridian for our friends' wedding.  So, I would love to be a Disney Wedding Specialist and cake decorator for the Grand Floridian!  I know I would be busy, but I know I would love every minute of it.

I could so groove into the whole wedding planning thing myself - as I also love planning and organizing just about anything!

One of the things I remember most of our Disney wedding was a)the cake, but b) the service we received from our planners. They really are miracle workers...

I can't imagine being a wedding planner knowing that so many brides are whacko... But, I'm just not the most patient person. The cake decorating idea is perfect! I'm very impressed by that cake!

Beautiful cake! I made a similar one (princess themed) for my girl's first birthday :)

Beth Green said...

awesome! When you get this job, Jonathan and I will head to WDW to renew our vows and have you plan our renewal ceremony! :)

Beth, I love the cake! I didn't know you were such a creative baker. That's most certainly something I'm not so good at. LOL! You can't play with the ingredients the way you can with cooking. You can be my specialty cake maker at my restaurant. How's that.

I think you'd be great at planning weddings. Being organized is absolutely what it's about. I used to plan Nashville rock events and benefits. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun.

Absolutely amazing cake, Beth, and I think you'd be just as amazing at being a Disney wedding coordinator :)

Disney on Wheels said...

The Little Mermaid cake you made is beautiful! I think those both sound like perfect jobs for you. :)

What a fun idea! I wish I were creative enough to decorate cakes...they make people so happy!

Beth, your cake is FABULOUS!! I think you are definitely talented enough to do cakes at the Grand Floridian!! Now, when you get the job as wedding coordinator I will volunteer to be your assistant!!
