    Yeal, take us with you. I'ld love to hear the inside workings of the magic kingdom. Back in the seventies the rumor was that Walt had a miniture dungon hidden away. In the eighties it was that some people disappeared from a ride. Can't wait for new dirt!

    Anyrate, good deal finishing college and landing a job! Now, just don't fall for any of the animal chactors until you find out if they are house broke.

    Congrats originel!

    Boeing is another great company to intern with, if you're an Engineer. I had an intern assigned to me when I was working there in M.E.

    They provide a housing option...they have contracted out to an apartment complex, but it's a real bum deal. $500 a month and you have to share a room with someone. 4 guys in a 2 bedroom apartment, no thanks!! I've found two places with vacancies that fit my needs so far...hopefully they will still be there next week.

    I believe she was actually working for a company that disney contracted? I believe the companys name was Litton. They are long since gone AFAIK. Litton,Rockwell,Raytheon, and some other companies members of my mom's side of the family worked at.

    Do they provide housing?

    Well since i applied for an internship, i applied when they came and held an info session at my college...little different than regular employment i'd imagine .

    Thanks again for the congrats. I wish i could work on the animatronics they have there, but they don't let interns work on those (probably for trade secret and safety reasons). I'm very curious what kind of dirt i'll here when i'm there.

    I just gotta get there...I'm starting to stress like mad. I leave in 3 days and i still don't have a place to live, plus i've got a ton of bills to pay in the next few days which will stretch me very thin. Once i get there and get settled things will be great though.

    My mom's mom back in the 60's or 70's (can't remember) worked on some of the animatronics for california disneyland. I know she did work on Mr Lincoln near the front entrance to the park, and I believe some on the different rides, like pirates, etc.

    Her mom was always very proud of the work she did, and she would at the end of the day go to the mr lincoln room and just stand there like it was a holy monument! She really loved what she did there!

    Good Job Originel!!! You will have to tell us inner park dirt you hear and give everyone on the [T] free passes!

    Awesome man. Designing stuff for disneyworld would sure beat the design work that I do (cell tower sites), although it has its perks (free cell phone), contacts with all the major cell companies. But nothing compared to free passes and Disney World. Kudos, very happy for you

    Congrats!

    On another note: I hated Animal Kingdom. It's the most expensive zoo in the world! I wanted to go to MGM Studios and ride The Tower of Terror, but nooooooo.

    They are called "Imagineers", and it's an awesome creative field to be in, let alone at Disney! The pioneers of Imagineering created the animatronic characters for the attractions and shows but the technology is now right on the bleeding edge. A hearty and humungous Congrats, O!! You'll kick yourself if you don't take the offer, even in your particular field that seems unrelated. It's a helluva resume entry in the entertainment industry you can take anywhere. Can you tell I'm jealous?

    Dunno though, could turn out to be a high IQ concentration camp or something
    oh darn, i have to come up with new ideas for disney...shucks... even that i wouldn't mind. I like hands on, but it's not that big of a deal to me actually.

    e sure to figure out where to place some mouse ears in your designs!!!!!!
    hehehehe...if i do anything i'll place some tech logos in there! maybe the techimo logo too...

    The legal department?
    Hey now, there are plenty of people that would be in heaven working for them...like satan for example!

    Thanks for all the kudos everyone! hehe, maybe you can make that a ritual no1_vern! say your daily jealous mantra . there are a lot of good experience out there though, this one just happens to have a prominent name. There are some down sides to it, like being 1500 miles from my girlfriend and family, and also the pay cut (the average EE internship salary is around $2500 a month). but i think it'll be worth it
