There was some interesting information in this week's CP email that was sent out today. As of August 1, Price Management will no longer be the group in charge of the apartments. Lincoln Management will take over the responsibilites. I don't think anyone knows if this will bring about changes in anything, but I thought it was interesting. Time will tell, I suppose.

I saw a couple of posts whose kids are going to the CP on August 8th. My daughter starts that day too. Was wondering what your kids will be doing while there? Mine is merchandise

Yes - our daughter will be starting August 8th, too. She will be in attractions. She's flying out on the 7th to meet her roommate - and we're excited/nervous/sad to see her go.

My daughter hasn't found a roommate yet so she will get the luck of the draw which is a bit scary too. We are driving her down and staying for a few days after she checks in.

Help!

Hi All! I'm sure some of my questions have been addressed in previous posts, but here goes! My daughter is checking in for the CP on 8/20. I am flying down with her and staying for a couple of days until she is settled. I feel clueless as to what the process will be once we arrive. Does anyone know what happens after we check in? I don't know how much I'll be able to participate in with her. I am trying to decide how long to stay ( I can change my flight) but I'm unsure of what she'll be doing the first couple of days. Can anyone walk me through some of the process so I don't feel like a fish out of water when we arrive? I greatly appreciate any help!

Hi!

So the first day is check-in, they'll be shipped off to Casting to do paperwork and stuff. That'll last a few hours, and then after she's done with that you can help her move into her apartment. Then she'll have housing meetings, general meetings, etc on the next day (I think) which will tell them all about housing rules and regulations, etc. That'll take up a few hours and usually they go alone.

Next is Traditions, the orientation for new Cast Members, which is a lot of fun and where they get their nametags and IDs, as well as go through the extremely exciting process of learning the ins and outs of becoming a Cast Member. They may or may not have already gotten their training schedule, and a day after Traditions will be Park Orientation. This is a more detailed orientation for the park that she will be most specifically working in- mine was MK so our park orientation had us walking around MK with a trainer.

Then she'll start training for her location. She'll be pretty busy the first few days but she'll have evenings free (usually) where you can spend time together. Her schedule she receives will tell everything in advance, and may include a lot of early mornings (I had to get used to getting up at 5:30 for meetings at check-in and Traditions!)

They will take any major. Major is irrelevant, you are eligible if you are attending classes at the time you apply for the CP. Also, there is only occasionally a summer program, and it is usually for alumni only. First-time CPs have to pick from either Fall/Fall Advantage or Spring/Spring Advantage- the summer program is for those who have done it already.

thanks! that helps a lot. at least i know they accept nurses! i would love to do the fall advantage program. but with nursing, my classes are kind of on a strict schedule:/ but i have 18 hours of college credit from dual enrollment and will be considered a sophomore my second semester of my freshman year... so maybe something could work out..

When we were in the family waiting area on Aug. 8th we were offered the opportunity to sign up to receive info emails I believe weekly which I did. I have not received any emails. How do I get on this email list? I'm not sure who to contact.

I signed up for those same emails at the family waiting area on the same day as you. Have yet to receive one either. Did they give you any copies of the employee magazine? I will look thru to see if I can find contact info on there and let you know if I find anything.

By the way, where does your son/daughter leave and what are they working at? My dd lives at Chatham and works in merchandise.

I'd be interested in that email address, too. Our dd is in Patterson.
