But I rarely saw shifts on the Hub for locations outside of Studios except for Pac and if I did, they were always when I was working. I really wanted to pick up a treat shift for one of the Halloween parties.

That sounds like so much fun! I had no idea you could do that.


My location wasn't super busy most of the time either. We had rushes but it wasn't too bad. The worst really was EMH nights.
Haha, if it was Matt then I knew him. Not well, as he was only there for a little while, while Blizzard Beach was under renovation, and he always got ERs right as I was coming in.
I had the same problem, PAC seemed like it would be so fun! But I never got that chance.

Disney makes it look like sunshine and roses (it's a job, I know it's not going to be all that all the time) and a few sites I've read seem to say that Disney treats their employees like crap, which I really don't want to believe. I'm mostly hoping for someone who's done the program to give me a fair shake on it. That's the biggest thing worrying me right now.
I worked Quick Service foods on my CP in 1999 at All Star Music Food Court. I thought it was going to suck but it was a lot of fun actually in the end & I made life long friends. Your CP is what u make od it really. I didnt find out my location until I was at Vista Way. I have a blog about my WDWCP with stories & pictures in my signature link. Feel free to email me any questions

Ahh I don't know! I didn't really know him that well so I have no idea if he came from Blizzard Beach. I do know he was on the cover of one of the tell-a-casts one week.

Depending on the check-in date, it may be too late to put a request in

I still have to pick my check in date. (Comparing airfare to figure it out. Any tips for cheap ways to get to Disney from NYC?)

Southwest, ohas rarely steered me wrong. I've heard jet blue is pretty cheap out of NY. I also found STA, which is like a student travel site, and they have GREAT airfare, but I've only looked at over seas stuff. I would bet it's the same for domestic.

(Seriously, I say great, it's 1/6th of the price, simply cause I'm a student and under 26 )

Congrats! I bet you'll have a great time!

I found a flight for just under $90 from jet blue, and it includes the first bag. Probably what I'm gonna end up taking.

I second that! I want to say my Mears ticket was $18 (Maybe actually $12 though) to get to my hotel the night before, if you go straight to check in the day of, they usually have a coupon for CPs. They were friendly, helpful, made a bunch of jokes, and my van was full of other CPs. It was a great start.
