Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Well, I was supposed to get out of work at 9pm, then got asked if I could close, and then ended up staying half an hour after closing is usually finished! It's now after 11pm and I'm just getting to my car!
Today was my first work day of the week, so at least I wasn't tired yet. Other than needing to stay so late, closing worked out well and everything went smoothly.
The rest of the day wasn't exactly smooth sailing, but it definitely kept us all thinking and laughing. I had a great time with my fellow Cast Members today! I also met some incredibly sweet Guests, like the little boy who said that he had lost a tooth in the Parks earlier in the week, or the baby girl who gave me the most beautiful smiles!
Even when our lines got incredibly long, everyone seemed to be in a really good mood today. I mean, at one point we had a massive crowd gathering and we got a little nervous, but everything went along pretty well and we were able to move Guests through the line in an efficient manner. Everyone was so understanding about wait times and it seemed like everyone continued to smile even if it took us a little bit longer to help each Guest.
In other news, the new "Frozen" ride opened at Epcot today. Now, last week, Soarin' had opened as the new Soarin' around the world. On its opening day, I had seen that there was something totally ridiculous like a 240 minute wait or something. That's four hours! But today, the "Frozen" ride had it beat. It had a 300 minute wait! That's FIVE hours! What in the world?! I heard that the line stretched all the way from the Norway pavilion into the next country's pavilion! I couldn't even imagine waiting on a line like that; you can't even do anything else the rest of the day!
Anyway, I'm exhausted and should start heading home. It's nights like these that I wish I lived closer to Disney!

My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
