That's probably why so many are 'pending' because they do not know how many more CPs will be needed until all of the PI jobs are filled. Also, if they pull 6 from retail and only 1 from attractions for PI's, it requires time to decide who goes where.

The PI jobs are extremently tough to get and those applicants apply for their 2nd or 3rd CP to ensure they have a job. Previously working in the CP does not guarantee a Professional Internship.

It seems long, but they have 'thousands' of applicants. Good Luck to everyone and know you still have a great chance!
I didn't know about the PI jobs, actually. This gives me a bit more hope! haha It's good to know there's still a good chance.

How soon the PI's usually find out? Is this why it can take up to the deadline date for the rest of us to find out if we've made it or not?

It has been almost two months already since my interview. Absolutely nothing has changed. I've lost all hope. My heart is completely broken at this point.

Unfortunately, it can take some time to find out. Don't give up- there is still time

So my wait finished today, sadly it wasn't the answer I was hoping for but I still have my chin up and ready to be more prepared for when I apply for Fall 2013! Disney always has a reason for what they do and I'm ready to see what it is! Maybe when I get accepted I'll find the love of my life xD Who knows!
But for everyone else who is waiting or got a rejection, do NOT give up! And for everyone who got accepted have an awesome time!

About the PI they told me that we would know by Thanksgiving. So if you are pending for regular CP that might be a date to look forward (?) to.

I don't know why they find it necessary to send the same "We're still working on your application" email 5000 times. I just find it more and more discouraging. I really don't even care anymore at this point.

I received another pending email today so I'm guessing a lot of others did too? I applied for Disneyland CP and today just was offered a permanent position at work (I've been working as a temp) but my heart is still with Disney so hopefully I'll know something soon (and not have to wait until Dec 14th!)

I am hoping for a hospitality role - has anyone else on here been accepted at Disneyland in guest services/front desk or similar roles?

So people don't email and call them non-stop asking them for an update.

Well the day I have been dreading has come. They didn't take me. I honestly wish I knew what I did wrong. It's not fair at all. They don't seem to really understand how much this would mean to me. I'm not giving up on this. I want it more than anything. I personally think that if I did it in the fall, it would be better mainly because I would get to see the parks on Halloween and Christmas which is something I've been wanting to do.
