Ok so I am terrible with facebook, but if I were to look for roommates on there where would I do that. Also, can I make it so my friends will not see that because I am friends with two of my co-workers and I am not letting them know I am leaving til about a month beforehand.

For a group that big, you would all have to be there together at check-in. Just be aware- there is no guarantee of getting everyone into the same apartment (as you are only guaranteed one roomate).

I like Chatham best myself. I stayed there for 5 of my 6 CPs.

I got accepted for Spring 2013 attractions and I've already been in contact with 4 other girls (5 including me, but we want to have 6 roommates). All of our arrival dates are January 8th. I've seen/heard that you have to have the same arrival AND departure dates in order to room together? How truthful is that, though? Others in the facebook group have said you only have to have the same arrival date. I've been thinking about emailing the recruiters but I figured I would come here first.

I'm like 99.9% sure it's just the arrival date that has to be the same :]

I'm 100% sure that both arrival dates and departure dates have to match.

https://disneyprogramsblog.com/?p=3226
"all participants must be the same gender, same age group (all over or under twenty one years of age) and have the same program arrival and departure dates."

https://disneyprogramsblog.com/?p=2466
"Participants must share the exact same arrival and departure dates and be of the same gender to be matched."

https://disneyroommate.com
"If you are eligible: You will be matched with someone else who has the same base criteria (gender, age, arrival/end date) as yourself. "

Erika,
Information on here and on FB can be incorrect. Don't be afraid to go to an official resource for clarification on anything.

DD took her chances with room mates.... And in her words "I hit the room mate lottery." They all got along and had a BLAST!

Good luck!

Disney's room survey

Ok, I have already found 2 other people to live in the house with me. So now we are looking for 3 more. But I honestly don't wanna just stick with the people i've already seen for 2 months on facebook. So the plan was for all of us to individually do Disney's survey when it comes out. I think it's a good plan mostly because I don't like picking my roommate. So if any alumni have done the random roommate, how did it work for you? Thanks!

Spend time getting to know people before you room with them.

My daughter just found out she got accepted today. We need to go on line soon - not sure for what or any other details. How do we go on this FB to find room mates?

TIA.

The thing is though is it is still online. You won't get to know them that well and could easily end finding something when you're living with them you don't like. No guarantee for a "perfect" roommate. No one is going to honestly list if they're messy, at least not usually if they're looking for a roomie.

If you don't want to use Facebook you can find roommates on tumblr. I just had my phone interview this evening so I haven't personally started looking for a roommate.

I got accepted on Friday!!!!!!!!!!!

Like a couple of people who posted already, my arrival date is January 15th (through August 2nd) doing Custodial.

Feel free to message me up and chat or whatever!!!!! I swear, I don't bite

I also am trying the tumblr avenue (and eventually FaceBook). Here's my tumblr roommate survey.
