Question: I have a roommate in mind for Fall09 already and I was wondering- when you get offered a role, can you accept it and then pick an arrival date (so we can make sure we both have the same date) later? And, if you use roommate notification, does it matter if your dates are the same?

What would be my time frame if i apply? would i be able to get into fall semester if i started a spring semester at a community college? sorry for the annoying questions - im clueless
You must be in college at the time you apply and they assume you'll complete that semester. So yes, if you are enrolled at the community college in the spring, you would be able to apply for the fall program!

If you just graduated high school in May 08 then you may be qualified for the career start program! The CS is nearly identical to the CP, you just have fewer role options. Look into to that one if you're interested as well!

Once you receive your purple folder you will have two weeks to accept your offer - you MUST select your arrival date in order to accept. In order to be roommates you must have the same arrival (and they prefer the same departure) date. If you and your preferred roommate apply on the same day, then there's a good chance you'll receive the purple folders around the same time too!

I've read the role description etc, but what do you ACTUALLY do?

Thanks!
That is correct. I worked at Casey's last summer. For QSFB, you can work in one of two areas: ODF (which is the carts, snack windows, ect) and the restaurants (like Casey's, Cosmic Rays, ect). For Casey's, there is 2 parts to the restaurant. There is Back of House (you prep the food, clean, cook, put everything together, some stocking, and so on), and Front of House (you work the registers, filler which is getting the order together for the person on the register, stocking, cleaning the topping bars, greeter, and so on). Now, this can vary for every location. Hopefully this helps somewhat.

When I applied for Fall 08, the apps were up around the start of the Spring semester.

I would imagine they would go up in January for fall. Applications for Spring '09 were up like August 20th before anyone even started classes.

My Spring semester starts up the 12th of January, and I know the Fall applications go up soon. When exactly is the deadline for the Fall CP applications and is it the type of thing where the sooner you sign up the better? I ask because I want to sit down with my counsoler and figure out a few things before commiting to the program, I just want to know the exact time limit I have when I start back up again.

Also is there a sample application I can take a quick look at to gather a feel for the process. Ha ha I think I might be taking this a bit far, but as far as Im concerned, this would be a dream come true.

Thanks again for the great replies!

I would apply earlier rather than later. I applied late this year and did get in, but not without my share of nerve-wracking nights and stress-filled days! It took a full month for me to get my offer and I got my 2nd choice, mostly b/c of my experience and b/c my first choice was full . You have 2 weeks after receiving it to accept, then another 2 weeks to pay your program fee, so it could easily be 8 weeks after your interview before you have to make a final decision. Some students waited much longer than I did. To be honest, if the economy keeps going the way it is, I think the CP is going to be V-E-R-Y popular, more than ever, so the early bird may have a better chance at the worm.

I don't recall the application being any different than a standard work app. Name, social, previous employers, etc. Pretty standard stuff.

The application was easier than any work application I've ever filled out.

There really is no deadline, as Disney will be recruting for the Fall program at least into April. However, like Gray said, it definitely is better to apply as soon as you can. The CP has gotten extremely popular and the later you wait, you could run the chance of the roles you most want being filled (or not being accepted at all). Hopefully the applications will be out early. I can't wait to apply!
