With temperatures reaching upwards of 85 degrees here in Florida, it only seemed fitting to attend the Blizzard Bash Winter Formal, hosted by the Disney College Program Housing Events team. It was lovely getting all dressed up with my friends, indulging ourselves in a night of delicious food and dancing.
The Blizzard Bash was held at the Contemporary Resort, deluxe location with an elegant ballroom. Each corner of the space was a character meet-and-greet location, that would have characters alternating throughout the night. There were great photo opportunities with Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy in their holiday attire. But I also got to hang out with some rare friends like Genie, Hades, Hook and Smee.
The middle of the room was a giant dance floor, that looked like a winter wonderland. “Snow” fell down over the dancing heads, adding that extra special touch that only Disney could make possible.
One of the best parts of the night was the food. Multiple buffet stations were set up around the space, offering main entrees such as pasta and chicken. Later on, they added a nacho bar with chips, salsa, and quacamole. But my favorite part was the dessert bar; a station with chocolate fondue and a variety of delicious dipping options. Cakes, pretzels, fruits, and marshmallows doused in chocolate. A great way to cap off the night.
Most of all, I enjoyed hanging out with my friends where we didn’t have to talk about work. It was a much needed break from the norm, and a great chance to let our hair down. Ultimately, the Blizzard Bash was a success in my eyes.
