Although as of publishing time this morning the regular website hasn’t yet been updated, Brady MacDonald at the LA Times has posted the final three qualifiers for the ultimate Disney Dream position of Chief Magical Official.
The finalists are: David Hawley of California, Justin Muchoney of Pennsylvania and Tripp West of Georgia.
While none of those were my favorites, I wish them all luck as they enter the head-to-head competition portion of the contest. They’ll all travel to Walt Disney World and compete in such challenging events as:
Stroller mix-up — Match the stroller with the correct accessory bag.
Towel folding — Create a towel animal following a training session.
Noise making — Generate the loudest crowd reaction.
Park information — Offer assistance, directions and tips to visitors.
Face painting — Create a design following a training session.
Voting will then be opened to the public again and a winner crowned on April 22nd. (Why did they choose that day… it’s the anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Earth Day. The Dream CMO position has nothing to do with either of those events and will either get buried or take away from the other events. Poor planning on someone’s part.)
