I was curious as to who still keeps an eye on the community. Where you worked, where you lived, what happened on the experience, where you are now, and generally where you've been since starting your WDWCP journey.

Thanks!

question [14 Nov 2006|07:54pm]

kskanzer
hopefully someone can remember and then help mei'm accepting my enrollment for the wdwcp 2007 spring, currently I'm filling out the job interest form there is a section that says:
"Please indicate below the one or two courses you may be interested in attending during your stay in the Disney College Program. Courses are optional and are not mandatory as part of the program. Please note that this does not guarantee enrollment in the course(s), but only shows interest."


Only there are no incdicated course listed.
Only an e-mail address for sending e-mails to regarding questions.. which i did send a notice too about this problem i'm having. Is this the way the form is suppose to look or are there suppose to be options i should be clicking??

And because of it i can't submitt my form. :(

any ideas?

Anyone work at a pin stand? [27 Mar 2006|11:47pm]

xstellarhurtx
Hey,
I have a favor to ask. I work at a Disney Resort and don't have any access to Disney Merchandise at work. I collect the Disney "Piece of History" pins and was wondering if I could pay someone working in merchandise base value + some extra to get me each when they come out once a month. The markup on Ebay is just too crazy, and I can't always make it to the parks on my days off.
Much appreciated,
Susan

question about transportation to Vista Way [16 Jan 2006|05:56pm]

missy1007
This question goes out to anyone who has traveled from the airport in Orlando to Vista Way - what is the most convenient way? I was planning on using Mears, but now I see you need to make a reservation and it costs $18. I thought it was free, first of all, and nowhere on the College Program website did it mention needing to make a reservation. Do you really have to do that, or can you just show up? I'm not entirely sure as to when I'll actually be ready to pick up transportation - the whole baggage claim, getting to baggage claim, etc scenario can be tricky. If I make the reservation and I put a certain time down and miss that time will I be able to take the next bus? Sorry if this is all confusing, but I guess I am a little confused to say the least:) Hope someone can help - thanks to those that do!

The Disney website will not let me log in and I've been trying for a few days.

I mainly need to get on for 2 reasons:

1.) To make a reservation for a van from the airport to Vista Way. Does anyone have the website bookmarked by chance?

2.) The documents you need. Is it just social security card, birth certificate, driver's license, and transcript? Is there any other official documents needed?

I feel dumb asking but I'm kind of freaking out that I can't log in to find these things out for myself. :( Now I'm regretting all the times I've looked around on there and didn't get done what I needed to get done.

Remember the magic … [12 Jan 2006|10:29am]

chucktreading
Lately, I have been feeling down because, I am not sure I can be a face character- I started thinking – gosh I am just not pretty enough- or talented enough. Then Last night I …remembered why I am truly doing this internship at Disney. It isn’t to be any ‘one’ character –This opportunity isn’t for me. Of course it is my dream but I got my dream I will be performing at Disney world. I am doing it because; I want to create magical moments for people. The characters at Disney are so amazing; they quickly make you forget their people under those layers of fur. They love everyone, no matter your size or age. I know, no matter how low I thought of myself those characters always made me feel one of a kind. They took you to a place where you could still play and pretend. I recall Joel (a casting director who took me under his wing for a day when I was 15) telling me a story of a guy who was about 70 years old- he ran over to and started bouncing , telling his wife “ Honey! I am bouncing with Tigger!” I have three large pictures in my house of me with Chip n’ Dale at different stages in my life. My Mom made them for my graduation – I loved those characters – other people must two or they wouldn’t wait hours in lines to see them everyday. I can’t wait to give that special magic to someone else …

The lesion I learned was that we can’t lose track of the Disney Magic we all have the power to create. No matter what our role is we can touch someone forever. I once, met a young lady at the American Adventure in Epect – she worked at the ride and was going around to invite people in. (She was eager to get people out the heat and into a great ride) we had a good half an hour conversation about how she started working at the parks and how much she loved where she worked. We had a big group of 10 people and if she would not have asked us to go on the ride I know at least half of them would have gone and for 5 of them the ride ended in tears. The girl A) made us all feel like her friends B) she made it seem like a big deal to her if WE went. C) she created magical moments for a bunch of people.

I will admit for the last couple weeks before my arrival I lost track of why I wanted to go – the politics of it all started getting to me. I hope , none of you ever lose sight or feel caught up in the politics of things…

A dream that you wish will come true. [06 Jan 2006|04:14pm]

So... I had posted awhile back about how I was excited about going to Disney and everything. It turns out that through the past month or so, I've dealt with so much... all the way up to getting put into Academic Suspension at my school. We're talking a major hurricane (not in the past month, but the backlash is still bad), and two sisters of mine dying.

But... I called my recruiter, Julie, and she went to bat for me with my school's Career Services Office. Today I found out that through everything, the bad, the good... I'm still going on the College Program. And I'm thoroughly excited! We did have to change my arrival and departure dates... so that's fine.

So let me go ahead and redo that survey. :D

1. Name: Amber
2. Age: 21
3. University/College: Southeastern Louisiana University
4. Is this your first time to do the program?: Yes
5. What Disney theme parks have you been to?: Disney World, 14 times, Disneyland, 3 times
6. Favourite Disney ride?: Tower of Terror and Mission Space
7. Favourite Disney movie?: The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, and Mulan
8. Favourite Disney Character?: Ariel, Mulan, Cinderella
9. If you already know your role what is yours?: Operations
10. If you already know, what is your arrival date?: January 18 - June 2
11. Tell us something about yourself that you find interesting or that you just want us to know!
I'm one of the biggest Disney fans ever. Well... at least my friends say that. I wear a Sorcerer Mickey pin on my Target uniform... totally not allowed, but I don't care. :D My friends call me a Disney Freak... I know so much random Disney trivia that it should be illegal!

So I'll be there soon. :D
