Hi everyone, my name is Alex. I’m 22 years old and this is my journey as a Merchandise CM for WDW’s Fall Advantage DCP!
This picture was taken during my March 2013 Disney World vacation which is the trip that made me realize I wanted to do the DCP. You can read about that trip here.
I just graduated with my Bachelor’s in English and I’m hoping to work in the creative side of Marketing, PR, or Recruiting. I’d love to do those things with Disney—Casting is my dream department!
