Interview at the Disney Store

So excited and I REALLY want this job. It's for weekends and holidays when I'm not at Sixth Form. My interview is next week, has anyone ever had one with them before and know what they might ask? I would imagine they follow quite a strict routine question wise and I don't want to be erm-ing all the way through :P. Surprisingly, google hasn't brought up a great deal so I'm hoping someone will have had an interview with them before . Thanks

So I know this post is really late, but I'll post it for future Disney cast members!

I went into my first group interview today. The location that I applied for is brand new and has not opened yet, so they held the interviews at a nearby hotel.
~Expect to be there for at least an hour.
~Arrive at least 15 minutes beforehand so that you can fill in the application. ~The dress code is quite strict if you're actually working there, so try to dress close to what they expect of you if you were working there. No piercings, tattoos, brightly coloured hair, too much make up, only nude/clear nail polish allowed, black or brown shoes, etc.
~Possible Questions: Since it was a group interview, everyone got different questions.
~Tell us a little bit about yourself and why you'd be a good fit at TDS.
~How do you handle a very busy day at work or school?
~Who is your favourite Disney character?
~Think of a scene in your favourite Disney movie and act/sing/dance it
out.
~If a girl walked in wearing a Cinderella costume, what would you do?
~How would you make our guest feel the most special?
~If you had to entertain a child for 30 minutes, what would you do?
~If a kid walked in wearing a Grumpy shirt, how would you approach
them?
~A mother walks in pushing a stroller and holding the hand of another
child, how would you approach them?
A lot of these are scenario questions, they really pride them selves on "entertaining" kids. They're also looking for really outgoing and fun people that don't mind acting a little kooky just to put a smile on people's faces.

After the questions, they just fill you in on what you need to know, dress code, black out dates, what "call in to work" is (basically you calling in to ask to work if you're not scheduled and they can say yes or no), basically stuff like that. They also ask if you have any questions at the end, so make sure you ask anything that's on your mind!

Hope this helps

I hope I get the job as it sounds like a very fun working environment!
