I applied in January but they did not have the dates available for 2013 yet. I also requested a date after January 2013. On Monday we were offered jobs for the dates for the first 6 months of next year - mine is the latest I've heard of though from our facebook group! They are only doing the applications once a year at the moment so that may be why!

Congratulations. Well done on getting through

My daughter had her application all ready for June, then yummy posted applications are not opening until November for July 2013 onwards.

So she has a few more months to wait yet.

Have a magical day

I am SO jealous I did the summer programme this year, so only had 3 months there. I would have LOVED to have stayed for a year - I miss it so much! Still, there is a chance of me perhaps taking a year out after uni to do it - but update us all, I want to live vicariously through you haha!

I can only speak from the 3 months I spent working at Magic Kingdom; but you're going to love it. Some days you get fed up, but I can honestly say it was the greatest experience of my life.

Good luck :D

P.S Am I right in thinking you applied January 2012 for a June 2013 start date? Thanks
