For anyone who's done the web interview, what are the questions like and how much time do we have? I've heard it's timed.
Anyone?

I haven't taken it myself but was in the room when my friend did it. Not all of it is timed, only a certain section. It asks questions about how you work with others and your work ethic. Some of the responses go from strongly disagree --> strongly agree, but others have specific responses to choose from. For example, the questions might say something like, "If you see another cast member doing a job wrong, you..." a) approach and correct them b) tell a leader 3) ignore it 4) show by example. That's not the actual question BUT the questions are along those lines. The other types of question were along the lines of, "I am easily stressed out" -SD, D, N, A, SA.

I think the response times were around 40 seconds for some, 20 seconds for others, but don't quote me on it. My friend passed with no problems but made sure to put strong answers (SA or SD) for most.

Hope this helps!

Thank you so much!! Ah the example you gave freaks me out. I'd better start thinking of what I'd do in that situation. I'm going to be so pissed at myself if I don't get a phone interview.

If I say that I've never been to Disney, will that be a big factor?

Personally, I don't think that it would be a big deal. You should put a positive spin on it. You will be seeing all of the Disney magic with wide eyes, taking in the excitement and joy just as a small child would have.

I don't think that would be a factor at all, a few friends that I met on my first program had never been to Disney before and they turned into regular disney experts in no time.

Just got done, I think it went fairly well! She didn't ask about me visiting Disney, but did want to know about my past work experience (how I dealt with a challenging customer, how did I make a customer's day) etc., which is pretty limited since I've only had one job at Subway. But other than that, I didn't get too nervous, she was so friendly!

I'm glad to hear your interview went well. I have mine on Saturday. I'm actually really nervous because I haven't worked in like 6 months since I left my full time job to return to college. I think my biggest concern is the rooming situation because I'm 27 and don't want to be roomed with anyone under 21 mainly because I don't want to be held responsible for anyone drinking or anything if they shouldn't be. I assume they do their best to try and room people within similar age ranges together. Anyways, I really hope it goes well because I love Disney World and feel like a kid still whenver I go. I actually called into work sick last summer to take a 3 day trip down to visit my family when they were there for the week...lol. Cost a pretty penny but I have no regrets.

They'll probably ask you more about the living situation because you're a little older, but she only asked what I would do if I had a really messy roommate.

Unless you want to, Disney will automatically put you in an apartment with other 21+ people. If you're accepted and still feel awkward about rooming with others much younger than you are, you can try to find your own roommate online; who is about the same age as you are. But 27 doesn't old to me at all!

Thanks, well I'll be 28 at the end of October, not that it makes a difference really. I read on different internet forums of some people saying they got roomed with men or women that were in their 30's and 40's and it was a little weird. I'm not even in my 30's yet so I think I'm probably just over thinking it....lol. I do that sometimes. Age isn't much of a big deal. When I was 26 I worked with a young guy who was 20 and we actually became pretty good friends before he went into the army.

I believe kind of like the other roles like BBB and lifeguard they just want to know about you experience. They probably ask about what you've done with photography etc.
