Suzy,

The IP people actually get their own complex, so you'll be near all the hot French guys. The complex is near Chatham Square, one of the CP complexes. Plus, you get your own washer/dryer, while everyone else has to use pay washers and dryers.

Question A couple of questions

What have you heard about Vista Way v. Chatham/where do you hope to live?

Are you planning on taking any of the classes while down in Disney?

I've been accepted as a resort hopper for the spring advantage program. Originally, I was going to take classes, but I think I might just have fun in my free time. I'm a bit indecisive like that. I'm also having some trouble figuring out which the pros and cons of each.

I had originally planned on not taking classes because I wouldn't be getting credit for them...but I think I might try to do one now (might is the key word here ), probably the Marketing You course. They're only one day a week (for 3ish hours? not sure) for like 8 weeks or so I've heard. So that's not too bad. Might as well try to get in on all that Disney has to offer. But I don't know, we'll see.

When will you be arriving down there?

My school requires me to take at least 2 classes while I'm down there, that is, if I get get accepted (my interview was on Thursday and the waiting is driving me nuts already). I'd love to stay at Chatham because I heard its much nicer and a little bit calmer than Vista Way.

I lived in Vista Way, and it wasn't as bad as all the rumors say it is. My apartment was pretty calm, and in reasonably good condition.

I stayed at Chatham during the Spring 2004 program and it was really nice, like a dream. I interviewed last wednesday over the phone and Im going insane too waiting for the response. I hope I get Chatham again, but Id be ok with Vista Way. Either way works for me. Its all Disney, I will just be happy to be home in Florida again. I miss it real bad

I just wanted to say hi and see if anyone had information on the interview for the CP...I don't interview until next week and I would really love to work in entertainment as I've been acting ever since I was little and am working on a degree in it at college now.

Who else is going?

Lightbulb interview tips

hey there allie! I was super nervous about my interview because I have never really had a job before. but anyway, the most important thing to remember really is to be yourself. i was asked questions specific to the work I wanted to do: with the vacation planner job i was asked how i handle a stressful situation. i thought i did horribly on the question but i answered honestly. then i was asked a genertic question about what you would do if you were working at space mountain and you noticed a child wanted to ride that was too young? so, you just need to be prepaired to show tact and knowledge of the areas you want to work with. lastly, i think most people are asked about a rewarding work experience/volunteer experience....this is your place to shine! show them how truly enthusiastic you can be about applying yourself to a job or volunteer situation! good luck!
by the way, my name is Janet, I am from Maryland and I will be checking in on January 9 and I am a Vacation Planner. If you need any other info feel free to IM me on AIM: JtotheG84

Hey Allie. I just got back from my CP in August so if you have any questions feel free to ask me. BTW, if you want to be in entertainment as a character, you have to go to one of the auditions at the schools listed on the www.wdwcollegeprogram.com website. My AIM is joanna71985 and my email is joanna71985@hotmail.com.

does anyone know how disney does there scheduling? Is it weekly, bi-weekly, monthly?

I realize that they're probably just going to stick us in where they need help, but I was just wondering how it was done.

My son is going off to Disney College

My son has been accepted into Disney College and he needs to check in on January 9. My question is... what needs to be done at check in and how long will this take. I'm assuming we'll be getting his room assignment and be able to get access to the room to set his stuff up. He'll be bringing his car from home so I'd appreciate any suggestions of extras he should bring with him. He's so laid back and I haven't gotten much feed back from him as to what we need to pack. How many day should I plan on using to get things set up, ie bank accounts, groceries for the room, etc.

Any suggestions you have will be greatly appreciated.

Check-in is a very LONG day. You have to fill out all the paperwork, get housing assignments, finger printed, a whole lot of stuff. I recomend getting there as soon as possible to get it all done. Since he's bringing his car, that's good. Make sure you bring some cash. You don't get paid for awhile. I brought around $300 and I was fine. Tell him congratulations!
