    Re: Accepted for Fall 2009

    I have my on-campus presentation tomorrow, so I'll probably end up doing my interview sometime this weekend. So I'm guessing I'll find out in about 3 weeks. haha. I've never been so nervous about anything in my life. I HOPE I WORK WITH Y'ALL IN AUGUST.

    Also, if you don't get in, do you receive anything letting you know you have NOT been accepted? Or do you only get information if you are? This is nerve-racking!

    You get a letter either way (the acceptance letter comes in a big white envelope, and the rejection letter comes in a small white envelope).

    Re: Accepted for Fall 2009

    I had my interview, and I think I aced it! haha I hate to sound overconfident, but we were both laughing the whole time and the conversation flowed really well!

    My girl asked me a lot of fun questions, like why I wanted to do the program ((So I got to sound Disney obsessed)), what my favorite park is, and my favorite ride.

    She asked about my work experience, what I liked and didn't like about it. I was a camp counselor for 4 years, so it was cool to be able to talk about my experience with kids.

    Of course, the Top 3-4 role question was asked as well. I listed my top 3 as: Attractions, PhotoPass, and Custodial - Not really in a particular order, though.

    For Attractions, she asked me how comfortable I was memorizing long speeches and delivering them over a microphone. She also asked if I was comfortable with 1-2 pages or maybe 20 pages for something like Jungle Cruise or Kilimanjaro Safaris. haha. I was like, "Well, it's going to sound cheesy, but honestly - for Disney, I would absolutely be able to memorize 20 pages of information." Then I ended up saying how I already knew some of the information from the safaris and stuff because I watch "nerdy television like the Discovery Channel" and the poor girl cracked up for a good 5 seconds before agreeing with me and saying how she loves TLC. It was awesome. haha.

    For PhotoPass, she asked me if I'd had any photography classes or if it was just a hobby and something I did for myself. She also asked how I felt I could do in taking excellent portraits of big families in front of the castle and avoid getting a bunch of other people in the photo.

    For Custodial, she was like, "Really, when I tell people this is probably one of the most fun jobs to have, they don't believe me, but you are really just given a list of things to do for the day, and as long as they get done, you are good. So about 70% of your time is spent cleaning, and 30% is interacting with guests." I told her how I personally know a few people who have done the CP and they actually said the same thing - how it was awesome because you just get to talk to guests, play games with them while they're waiting for the parade, etc. She was just like, "Exactly, there is a ton of guest interaction, so do you feel you are a very outgoing person?" Then she asked if I was comfortable cleaning bathrooms.

    When she asked if I had any questions, I was just like, "I was wondering if I mentioned a preference for where to work if that would be taken into consideration." She said, "Absolutely! Do you have a preference?" I said the Magic Kingdom. She took it down and said how it's necessary to be a separate question, because some people have a different favorite park than somewhere they'd like to work.

    It went so well! But I'm talking too much, so here comes the nervous waiting period....... Let it begin.

    Talking Re: Accepted for Fall 2009

    I'm in!!!! I just found out early morning yesterday, so less than 10 days after my interview. They loved me! haha. I'm doing Custodial, because I think it's the best job to have, and that's what I've heard from everyone. I love talking to people and interacting with guests, not to mention I am a hippie by nature who picks up trash around town all the time, haha. So I think I will LOVE it. I hope I'm in the Magic Kingdom, and I'm pretty sure I will be. SO EXCITED! August 10-January 2!
