If your main role choice is hospitality, you can expect quite a few questions regarding Guest Service...things like, "What would you do if a guest requested a room in this building, with these amenities, and it was absolutely not available..." etc. Also, if you are planning on doing an Advantage season, be prepared for them to ask you if you would be willing to be a resort hopper, where you would do half of your program in the front office, and half of it in housekeeping...that's just something else to think about

For merchandise, I would have to say:
"what would you do if someone wanted an item, and the shop was out of it?"

Yeah, I did merch my first program, and got, "What would you do if a guest wanted a specific item that you did not carry anywhere in your park?"

What kind of questions should you expect for Character Performer or Hospitality? (My top two)
Hi Disney Chick-

I just had my interview and here are all of the questions I got (nothing for Hospitality so I can't help you there).

First we did a recap of the questions from the application.
Why do I want to do the CP at this point in my life?
Why do I want to work for Disney?
How would I interact with guests - good guest service?
What would I look for in a CP applicant?
Describe a situation where I've had to work with a difficult person, boss or professor.
How open am I to people from diverse backgrounds?
Being married, how do I feel about the living component?

Then we talked about the roles I checked off and my reasoning for selecting each of the roles.

Attractions-
What would you do if a 4 year old girl wanted to ride space mountain but she was too short?
In terms of a spiel ride (I said I was interested in GMR)- talk about a situation in which I have talked in front of a large group of people.

Character Performer-
How would I act as a character performer?
Talk about my experience with entertainment/theatre.
What would I do if a child was scared of me?

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Hostess-
Do I have salon experience?
(My answer was "no," so we stopped there - I will not be getting this role )

Berlioz70 Thanks so much! I'm so excited. My interview is tomorrow at 10:20 am! Last time I did a face to face interview, so a phone one is going to be so different for me!

I know what you mean. I'm not a big fan of talking on phones.
