WILTON - Today was the final day on the job for Wilton Fire Chief Paul Milositz, and some people might not believe what he's doing next. He's going to Disney World!

Milositz says he plans to move Florida to fulfill his dream of becoming a monorail conductor at Walt Disney World. He says this is something he's been wanting to do since he first started with the department.

Milositz says the thing he'll miss most from his 37 years in the fire service, 10 of which were spent leading the department, are the people.

He says even though some people might make jokes, this truly has been his dream for the past 15 years.

Milositz says he got the idea while visiting the park with his son several years ago, and recently applied after seeing a a job posting earlier this year. He will be starting his new job at the end of this month.
