There's a limit on Friends & Family rooms - I think 5 or 6 per year. As far as I know, no limit on rooms where the CM is staying in the room.

My sister and I took my niece about a month ago.. On check in day she went by herself and met up with her roommates. After the apartment assigment, they went to casting. We met her at the apartment after that and all of us went to Walmart. We went back, unpacked the girls kitchen items, checked to make sure everything that was supposed to be in the apartment was and my sister and I left.

We flew home the next day. You dont need much time. If her grandparents live close by, they can drop her off and go home or they can wait int he parents area. It can be a very long day of waiting depending on what time they get their apartment and go to casting.

Very helpful everyone thank you. She had her phone interview today. Went well chatted for over half an hour. They asked her alot of questions about custodial so she was a little nervous that they planned to give her that, but it went well. Her top 2 were attractions and full service.

My daughter is in custodial and absolutely loves it. She has the freedom to move around and not be stuck in one location and gets plenty of guest interaction.. If your daughter happens to get custodial let her know it is considered one of the best roles. Hope she gets the role she wants but if she ends up in custodial she just may end up loving it.. Good Luck!

If she's custodial in a park she'll get lot's of guest interaction. BUT my DD got a resort and is miserable! It's empty and boring and she says she only has about 2 hours worth of work for all 8 hours. She's sorry she agreed to take custodial. She wishes she hadn't listed it as a choice as she never thought about being at a resort. So far the only interesting thing that has happened at the resort is George Kalogridis (the new president of WDW) came over to talk to her personally!!! Apparently he is staying at her resort while waiting for his home! LOL!! She's making it work but it's not 'fun' like she was hoping it was going to be...and she's worked other jobs and realizes what working entails so she wasn't totally clueless.... But she had just hoped it would be better than what it is especially after travelling SO far away from home to be at the Happiest Place on Earth. She wanted to pay forward what other CMs had done to make our trips so magical but doesn't feel like she really can hidden away where she doesn't really ever see a guest...

Fingers crossed for you! My DD didn't even tell me she applied, 'cause she knew I would drive her crazy with questions and nervousness!

Hi again...
Well I have been talking to DD pretty much every day at least by text and on the phone a minimum of every other day. She seems to be doing better. She told her roommates that she was thinking of leaving and most of them when crazy telling her she couldn't!! They would just miss her too much!
She seems to have connected with a pair of other CMs at the resort. When they are working, it makes her days much more tolerable! LOL! She did have a really cool guest interaction the other day. She spent quite awhile talking to an older lady and that lady told her how much she reminded her of her granddaughter who had recently passed away (they even had the same name!) The lady came back an hour later w/ a cupcake for DD saying how much more special she had made her day and she was the sweetest friendliest CM she'd ever met!! I think that really made DD feel equally as good! because that's what she wanted to do!! She wants a visit. She's still missing family, so I am headed down in exactly 4 weeks!! She's excited and so Am I!! I'm proud of her for trying to make the best of a not so easy situation!! She's taking things one day at a time!

Aww well done to your daughter and its lovely to be appreciated by the guests. I can feel your worry though my daughter is coming over from the UK in the summer. I'm sure she'll be fine especially now she know the other CMs think well of her and don't want her to go. You'll feel so relived though when you see her .

I haven't been on the boards for quite sometime. But I wanted to say congrats and good luck to all the new prospective CM'S. My daughter started in August 2012 in the CP as a Photopass Phtographer at HS. She loved the job and HS is her favorite park, however she roomed with 7 other girls. 2 termed early and were replaced and they had one from he*# as the other girls would say. She made almost every girl in the room cry at one time or another. But over all she loved the experience so much she extended her stay and is now a Character Attendant at MK until the the middle of May.
As a parent there will be ups and downs. My daughter had several family members from NY visit a few times but she really needed to come home to see everyone (mainly her dog and cat) She came back to central NY a few weeks ago for a week and with the cold and snow she's glad to be back in Florida and informed us she plans to live there some day. I can say a car is really nice if possible. You can get around without one but travel time is much longer. Like yesterday she worked from 8:45 - 7:30. it's nice not sitting around waiting for a bus. They are allowed to put in for no more than 10 days off in a stretch so they can come home if approved. Discounts are great she took full advantage of the holiday discounts and most food places in the area also give discounts to CM"S. Any questions I will be glad to anwser and good luck....

I've been reading back through and I can definitely relate to quite a bit of this...

I've yet to tell my Parents either, given that it's my third time applying for the Program. I think it's just finding a way to calmly break the news subtly.

Keep up the excellent work, and Have a Magical Day!

This is how my parents found out...

Mom: "Gerry, I'm thinking of planning a trip to Disney this June for Star Wars Weekends"
Me: "Awesome! I should have my maingate by then so I can get you dad and my sister in and I can use my discount for your hotel!"
Mom: "....Excuse me? What do you mean you'll have your maingate by then?"
Me: "Oops. Surprise mom! I'm going back! "
Mom: "YOU'RE GOING TO MISS MY BIRTHDAY AGAIN????"

She's still not too happy with me right now haha.
