Does anyone have a map image that has all of the complexes on it, and where they are located in comparison to the parks and resorts? I think I saw one on here recently, but I don't remember which thread.

4. The bigger the apartment (and more roomates), the cheaper rent will be. Vista is the cheapest complex, then Chatham, with Patterson being the most expensive.

5. I'm sure things will be online. Then when you arrive, info will be in the guidebook you receive at checkin
Thanks for the reply! I was just curious as a few roommates "heard" a few things about televisions and what have you. It's been recommended by quite a few people that we bring a vacuum since the ones typically rented out are harder to deal with.

Also as far as rooms go, I assume it's the more roommates you have, the cheaper then rent based upon which complex you're in.

Thanks, and Have a Magical Day!

Correct. The more roomates, the cheaper the rent.

Also, rent is also different depending on the complex. Vista is cheapest, then Chatham, then Patterson, then Commons being the most expensive

Actually this time around Patterson and Chatham are the exact same cost, Vista is still the least expensive overall, and the cost for a commons 2br is the same as Patterson and Chatham but more expensive for the rest of the options. I don't know why they had to go messing around with these things. lol

So I've read many times (in this thread, even!) that declining an offer won't affect your chances of acceptance for a future program. I'm curious though, will the fact that you declined get brought up in your interview if you decide to apply again? I'm just wondering because I'm thinking of doing the program at either park after I graduate, but that won't be for at least another year or so. I applied for Spring 2013 for DLR but got NLIC, so I thought applying again between now and my last semester might be helpful for the interview practice.

It would be up to the person doing the interview. If you read up on the interviews, the specifics are a little different about what was discussed. There will be some people say "My interviewer didn't mention my previous applications" and there are some who say "My interviewer did mention that they saw that I had declined".

In either case, it wouldn't matter because they have stated officially on their site that it isn't something that they take into consideration.

Since I haven't really seen it asked before --

What's the best idea when going with a Wireless Router?

I know Router Speed won't matter much as it's set by whatever ISP that the housing complexes have, but I'd just like something well enough to get on the internet. I've heard that housing internet is slow as it is.

Also, I'll be the one paying for it so hopefully something under $100. I'm guessing the connection is in the public living space, and not a room so hopefully something that if it "disappears" I won't be too disappointed.

Thanks!

Have a Magical Day!

When applying is it harder to get in if you have graduated the semester before? (I'll be graduating in December and wanting to do it for Spring). Also is it harder to get in if you aren't living on the Disney property?

I applied this semester (Graduated in May) you will need to apply when applications come out in Aug/September. Not living in Housing has no effect since they won't know that until after you accept your offer.

Pirates League CM?

Hey! I am considering WDWCP Fall 2014 (long way off, I know...) and I wanted to know if one of the roles available on the CP was the Pirates League? I like the idea of BBB, but Pirates League sounds like a lot more fun to me!

On the CP website it lists the two roles together, but does not elaborate at all.

Thanks!

Pay?

How much (generally) do CPs make an hour? I guess it depends on what role you get, I've heard characters make more, but I'd love to have an estimate on what the pay is!

Thanks!

I was offered $8.65 for Concierge, I would assume Vacation Planning would be around the same as there is a lot of training involved. Merchandise, Food and Beverage and attractions should be around minimum wage which in FL I think is about $7.35. Maybe others in other roles can comment.

I got accepted as attractions, and my offer letter said that the pay would be $7.79. I think minimum wage in Florida was recently increased.
