    Talking Just Accepted for Fall 2008 Aug20th arrival.

    Hi Everyone
    I just accepted and I am super excited! I was wondering if anyone else has signed up for Aug 20th arrival. The roommate notification is not working for our date at least not yet. Anyway I thought it would be cool to get to know some people who are going down the same time. We can exchange Myspace or Aim. I just think it would be really cool to befriend some people before we get there! Talk to you Soon!

    Congratulations, where will you be working or do you even know that yet?

    I am returning to Disney after a 2 year absence and will be starting back on May 24th in Entertainment.

    Best of luck to you.

    Congrats, and welcome to DWT!!

    I will be doing my 4th CP starting next week!! Unfortunately my programs ends before you arrive, so I won't get to see you down there. But I'm sure you will have a blast.

    As for custodial, that was my role last summer. I worked at Epcot WS (which was a great location).

    I have never been College Program I have always been a regular CM. But I have worked with many CPers and they always have a great time.

    I was in Characters and Stage Tech, I will be returning as a Stage Tech at the Studios.

    A good friend of mine started out as a Custodial CP and eventually became full time in Attractions then became Indy at the Stunt Show and is currently a precision driver at LMA.

    I know others who have become animators such as Lon Smart and still others have gone on into acting and stunt work. A good friend of mine is now in Imagineering. If you know how to work it, it can be a great company to work for.

    Have fun with what you do.

    I used to be at Indiana Jones primarily but was trained at several stages at the Studios and a couple at DAK.

    I expect I am returning to IJ although they haven't confirmed that yet...

    what are the chances of actually keeping a job down there when the CP is over? My main goal is to stay down there as long as posibble to work my way into becoming a graphic designer for the company.

    It's pretty good, especially if you keep your record card clean. I plan on doing that next year, since I will be done with school.

    I am a theater major and I am hoping to be a professional stage manager. Is the WDWCP the only way to Network/Intern with the entertainment employees? I am hoping to get into the WDWCP fall '09 but I know that I most likely will not get a position in which I am in close contact with anyone in the entertainment area. It would be awesome to be able to Network with people there or even get a job down there in entertainment eventually. Do you have any advice/tips/ideas on how I would go about doing so? I would greatly appreciate any help

    There are many ways to network with entertainment. Disney doesn't do stage management like traditional theatre, they do things a bit differently. Begin submitting resumes. Go to DisneyAuditions.com and they have info on Stage Managers as well.
