As you might have understood, I did my summer training at Walt Disney World in Orlando (Florida, USA). It is composed of six different theme parks and a downtown. As far as I am concerned, I have worked for one of the theme parks, Hollywood Studio. By the way, let me introduce you to the Walt Disney Company. Walt Disney and his brother Roy Disney founded it on October 16, 1923. It was originally established as an entertainment and animation studio. Then it became what everybody knows: the biggest theme park company and one of the main international companies.
Walt Disney World is located in Florida, in an area named Lake Buena Vista, that's where I lived too. This huge area is dedicated solely for the pleasure of some people.

By interning at the park (Florida, USA), I could learn more about the American working culture. When I applied for the internship, I had to choose between twelve different positions. One of my first choices was " food and beverages". Fortunately, I could obtain this position. I had selected it because of the different contacts it could offer me.
