An Unyielding Spirit

Amber's sheer determination led her to the Disney College Program, a prestigious internship that allowed her to experience firsthand what it takes to be a Disney Cast Member. She was fully immersed in the magic, working tirelessly to create unforgettable experiences for guests from around the world.

During an intensive training program, Amber honed her skills and knowledge, learning the intricate details that make the Disney parks so enchanting. From learning the precise positioning of the iconic Cinderella Castle to understanding the importance of seamless guest interactions, she embraced it all with fervent dedication.

A Journey of Self-Discovery

Amber's pursuit of her dream extended beyond gaining practical experience. She delved into the history of Disney, studying Walt Disney's visionary mind and the incredible revolution he brought to the world of entertainment. She discovered that the magic of Disney wasn't just in the enchanting tales or the captivating parks, but in the spirit of creativity and innovation that Walt Disney had instilled.

As she embarked on this journey of self-discovery, Amber realized that earning her ears wasn't just about achieving a personal goal; it was about becoming part of a legacy that has touched the lives of countless individuals across the globe.

Earning Her Ears: A Transformative Experience

After months of hard work, dedication, and unwavering commitment, Amber finally earned her ears and officially became a Disney Cast Member. The emotions that swelled within her were indescribable. She had gone from a starry-eyed child with a dream to a passionate individual ready to contribute her own magic to the Disney realm.

As she donned her Mickey Mouse ears for the first time, she felt a deep sense of pride and accomplishment. It was an affirmation that dreams do come true, but only through genuine passion, perseverance, and the willingness to go the extra mile.

The Impact of Dreams

Amber's journey is a testament to the transformative power of dreams. She went from an avid Disney fan to an integral part of the Disney world, creating magical moments not just for herself, but for every guest she encountered along the way.

Many of those who have had the pleasure of meeting Amber have described her as a beacon of light, a living embodiment of the magic that Disney represents. Her passion is contagious, and she continues to inspire others to chase their dreams, regardless of how impossible they may seem.

A Never-Ending Adventure

Amber's journey doesn't end with earning her ears. She has set her sights on new dreams within the company, aspiring to become an Imagineer and contribute her innovative ideas to the ever-evolving Disney universe. It is through this relentless pursuit of excellence that she continues to grow, learn, and touch the lives of those around her.

My Boss, Mickey Mouse

Come read Amber Sewell's Disney College Program diary and share her successes and her failures, her moments of delight and her moments of despair, and learn what happens when the pixie dust settles and the guests have gone home.

As part of her job, Amber not only had to flash a smile and chat with awestruck children, but also deal with amorous Imagineers, drunks in Downtown Disney, bleeding kids and hysterical parents, screaming roommates, conceited Cast Members, and power-hungry supervisors. Throughout, she kept her cool, chronicling in Amber Earns Her Ears what it's like to work "backstage" and how Disney ensures its millions of guests always come back for more.

Even though the pay is low, the rules rigid, and the experience at times disillusioning, Amber still found her job magical. Her book is as much a coming of age story as it is a compelling behind-the-scenes glimpse of Walt Disney World.

Follow Amber as she:

  • Soldiers through Disney's extensive Cast Member training, including the famous Traditions class
  • Struggles to master Disney's picky procedures for food prep and quick service at Epcot's Electric Umbrella
  • Stands in the broiling Florida sun behind a cart selling Captain EO merchandise to the disinterested
  • Seeks the reason why someone would stand in the broiling Florida sun behind a cart selling Captain EO merchandise
  • Shares tips for how you can ace your College Program application and interview, and work for the Mouse yourself

From private, after-hours tours of iconic attractions like the Haunted Mansion to hauling sacks of rotting food to a grease pit behind the Electric Umbrella in Epcot, Amber Sewell saw the Mouse at his best and at his worst, and tells all.

Amber Earns Her Ears is the first volume in the popular "Earning Your Ears" series. If you've never been in the Disney College Program, this is the next best thing!
