Stories of the Magic Podcast – Episode 024 – Jennifer McGill, Part 2
Sponsored by Leaving Conformity Coaching.
In this episode, we continue my chat with Jennifer McGill. Last time, we talked about how she got started working for Disney, and being part of the New Mickey Mouse Club, what else she did for Disney, this time as a Walt Disney World Cast Member in the Voice of Liberty and Tarzan Rocks, and more, a couple of memorable in-park experiences from her days in the Mickey Mouse Club, including riding Tower of Terror with Christina Aguilera, what it was like being a student while working on the Mickey Mouse Club (you’ll be amazed at what she had to do her junior year in high school), and much more!
In this one, we backtrack a little bit so you can hear the end of last week’s section to keep the flow of stories. After this part of the interview, I’ll play another clip from This Little Light, performed by Jennifer, as I did last week.
Jennifer talks about:
- How she keeps a balance between work and play on her jobs;
- How she got connected with several of the jobs she’s had over the years;
- What she loved most about what she did, including her favorite role for Disney;
- What it was like to perform in the rotunda of the American Adventure building;
- Her “residual pixie dust” from being on the Mickey Mouse Club…even years later;
- How she tries to stay humble…and how she balances that with having confidence in yourself;
