Ever wonder what it would be like to work for Mickey Mouse? Wonder no more...

Amber Sewell dreamed of working for Disney. Her dream came true when Disney accepted her into its College Program and gave her a job as a Cast Member at Walt Disney World. For Amber, it was her first real job, her first time livng away from home. But working at the "Happiest Place on Earth" is not a vacation. It's a job.

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 keeps her cool, chronicling in "Amber Earns Her Ears" what it's like to work "backstage" and how Disney keeps its millions of guests coming back for more.

Retired Executive Vice-President of Walt Disney World Resort Lee Cockerell says, "Amber Sewell has done a great job of painting a fun and informative picture of what it is like to work and live at Disney as a young college student."

In forty-two chapters, Amber takes you from her home in Knoxville, Tennessee, to her Disney apartment, and then back again, with enlightening, entertaining stories of everything that happened to her in-between. All the people in the book are real. (Even WDW Radio's Lou Mongello makes an appearance.) Amber also shares tips about how to successfully enroll in the Disney College Program and what to expect when you show up at dawn in a big tent with hundreds of fellow enrollees to learn the Disney Way.

Amber pulls no punches. She shares the magic of private, after-hours tours on foot through The Haunted Mansion as well as the misery of hauling sacks of rotting food to a grease pit behind the Electric Umbrella in EPCOT. Even though the pay is low, the rules rigid, and the experience at times disillusioning, Amber still finds her job magical. Her book is just as much a coming of age story as it is a unique behind-the-scenes glimpse of Walt Disney World.
