Behind the Magic: A Day in the Life of a Boutique Owner at Disney


Hello, fashion lovers! I’m Ariane Apostle, the proud owner of By Ari, a colorful, trendy, and affordable online women’s boutique. Today, I want to give you a sneak peek into a typical day in my life, balancing the magic of working at Disney World and running my beloved boutique.


Morning Magic at Disney World

My day starts bright and early at 4:30 AM when my alarm goes off. I quickly get ready, grab a protein bar, and sip my essential morning coffee. By 6 AM, I’m at work, ready to create magic at Disney World. I’ve worked here for a little over five years now, and every day still feels like a new adventure. The vibrant colors, whimsical styles, and joyful energy of Disney World are constant sources of inspiration for By Ari.


Midday Break: Sneaking in Boutique Business

Around midday, I take a short break to focus on By Ari. During lunch, I use my phone to check in on the boutique, handling customer queries, and brainstorming ways to keep our collection fresh and exciting. I also enjoy scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest for the latest street style trends and fashion inspiration. Engaging with our followers on Instagram and TikTok during this time is particularly rewarding. Your comments, likes, and shares truly brighten my day and inspire me to keep creating.


Afternoon Adventures and Inspiration

After my break, it’s back to the Disney magic. The afternoons are typically filled with more guest interactions and sometimes even a bit of behind-the-scenes work on upcoming park events. Being surrounded by so much creativity and joy fuels my passion for fashion. I often find myself noticing vibrant color palettes or unique outfits that spark new ideas for By Ari.

One of my favorite parts of the job is meeting people from all over the world. Their stories and unique styles often spark new ideas for the boutique. Plus, I get to test out new outfits from By Ari in the park, which is always fun. Imagine twirling in a new dress in front of Cinderella’s Castle—talk about a fairytale moment!


Evening: Boutique Focus and Wind Down

When the day at Disney winds down, my focus shifts fully to By Ari. Evenings are dedicated to planning and strategizing. I review the latest fashion trends and decide what new items to add to our collection. This is also when I work on content for our social media channels. Creating fun, engaging posts for Instagram and TikTok is one of my favorite things to do. I love making fashion fun and accessible for all of you.

On Thursday and Friday nights, as well as weekends, I try to participate in markets around the Orlando area. These markets are a wonderful opportunity to meet customers in person, showcase our latest collections, and share the By Ari experience with the local community.

After a full day, I finally wind down by relaxing with my fur child, my black cat named Jack. We cuddle up, and I either read a good book or catch up on the latest fashion blogs. My life is busy, but it’s filled with things I love, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.


Balancing Both Worlds

Balancing a job at Disney World and running an online boutique isn’t always easy, but it’s incredibly rewarding. The key is staying organized and passionate about what I do. Working at Disney reminds me every day of the importance of happiness and magic in our lives. Through By Ari, I aim to bring a bit of that magic to you with every piece of clothing.

Thank you for joining me on this behind-the-scenes look at my life. I hope it gives you a better understanding of the heart and soul behind By Ari. Remember, fashion is one of the best ways to make you smile, and my goal is to help you find your unique style that brings joy to your life.

Stay tuned to our Instagram and TikTok for the latest updates, and don’t forget to check out our latest collection!


With love and style,

Ariane Apostle
