I know that it is acceptable to have tattoos, but you have to have them covered. My question is, must you have them covered the day you check in? Even if they would not show in the ID photo? Has anyone on here had to cover tattoos, and what works best?

Just so you all know, an email (College Program Newsletter) went out yesterday saying applications for Fall will probably be up in February.

I don't think it would be that much of a problem, the only thing I would be worried about is hearing "Just to let you know, tattoos are not part of the Disney Look" a dozen times that day. Where is your tattoo? A lot of them can be covered by wearing either pants or long sleeved shirts, otherwise you can google and find some good coverup makeup.

From the email I just received:

"Please keep in mind that it is expected that you are in complete compliance with all of the Disney Look guidelines when you check-in. This includes, but is not limited to:
* Removing all body piercings (including cartilage piercings and tongue rings).
* Covering all visible tattoos.
* Having a natural hair style and color. If hair color is changed, it must be natural-looking. If hair is highlighted, the highlights must be very subtle, well-blended with the rest of the hair and distributed evenly over the entire head. If highlights are not well-blended, if 'roots' are visible, or if the overall style or color does not appear natural, it will not meet the Disney Look guidelines. It will be your responsibility to change the color and/or style before beginning work.
* For gentlemen, being clean shaven and fully within the guidelines regarding facial hair.
If you do not meet these requirements, you will not be permitted to obtain your housing ID."

I've got a question for alumni about going seasonal...

I have a one week break (jan 2-jan 9) between my CP and PI, I would obviously like to work that week as a character performer but have run into some obstacles.

I have already talked to my manager and have been approved to go seasonal following my program. He said that he gives all the names to "whoever" that day (jan. 2) but that it could take up to a week before it becomes official.

So here's my problem, in order to work that week I will need an ID to get in and to clock. My CP ID will be expired and I'm told I cannot get my Seasonal ID until it's official in the system.

So now my question: how long does it usually take to get my new ID? Access Control is closed Jan 1-4, so the earliest I could go is Jan 5. Since I'm moving into a PI, is there any chance my CP Id would still work? Do you think I could get my PI ID over a week early? Any other suggestions?

I'll be calling Access Control on Monday, but was hoping for some insight!

I'm not sure about Florida's Access Control procedures, but that sounds like something you would have to talk with Access Control management about, since it's a special circumstance.

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.
Thanks Joanna! Do you get any choice in where you work and what you do? And if you end up in a restaurant do you switch between front and back of house? Do you get any say in the matter or do Disney just place you where they think is best?

with qs f and b, its similar to working in any fast food place, you could be doing cashier work, counter work (handing food/drinks to guest) or bussing (cleaning tables, trash,etc)

hope that's helpful..

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

Thanks!

I worked qsfb during my first CP, and I worked stands at MK, I never had to bus table, and in some places i'd do register and get the food, like at mrs. potts cupboard, or scuttles landing in fantasyland. . .it all depends on where you are placed.

I think so. Just put in a request. It can't hurt to ask. And yes. I had days where I worked in both the front and the back (sometimes more then once).

At Casey's, the tables went to custodial. We didn't have to bus them ourselves.

They can go to Vista. But they can't go around to all the stations. There is a waiting area for family/friends.

In that case, I'll leave them at the Animal Kingdom Lodge Pool and tell them I'll take photos.

That's what my dad does now. He just drops me off at Vista and goes back to the hotel to wait. He hasn't stayed at Vista since my first CP.
