    Need some advice and opinions

    So I'm doing a professional internship for Disney and they have put me in some housing. I was told they would put me in with horticulture interns but when I moved in that wasn't the case. Turns out I'm rooming with a Norwegian, a Frenchman and a German. All three of them have been here for eight months and have a negative attitude on the company and can't speak English well. I don't know a single soul down here and can't do anything until my Disney traditions class on Saturday. My thought is that I auld change housing with at least other Americans who may know other people. Downside to moving is that it's pretty cool to meet with others from different countries. What would you all do? Ask for a change or stay put. FYI they are pretty messy.

    My room mates are guys and the Norwegian did have a girl over a few hours ago. I'll do everyone a favor and not post her picture here.

    Re: Need some advice and opinions

    I'd try to get in with some Americans. What's the fun in working at Disney if you can't go out and experience it with others. It sounds like the foreigners don't like fun.

    This is my thought as well. They are chill and all but it's not much fun when you ask what they said every time they say something.

    Re: Need some advice and opinions

    My only good advice would be to never ask for advise from CF members, especially after midnight. Ever seen Gremlins? You just opened up the box. Good luck.

    Part of the reason for this thread is that I need a good laugh and need it from people who are from a family.

    You could see if Cinderella needs a Roommate? Or Snow White so you wouldn't have any evil step sisters comin after you.

    Im sure the castle gets awfully lonely at night...... On a side note Magic Kingdom is open for 24 hours tomorrow. Why on earth would you go to a theme park at 2 in the morning?

    Disney is pure evil on too many levels to list.

    But hang with the international folks. Expand your horizons.

    Stay put. Your professional life is going to be filled with working around people you may not get along with. It could be seen as a negative if you show inflexibility in that regard.

    Streak through the Disney Park when the kids are out.
