Roger and Leeg its lovely that you've both been back/are going back to do it again, I'm sure DD will do too, its all a big adventure for her and she's really looking forward to meeting others who are equally as excited about Disney as she is.

Yes, good luck to all the CPs applying.

My dd is there now. She is working at CBR in custodial. So far so good. She comes home in May. She does not have a car. I keep forgetting to ask her how the busses are. We are getting a new car for her when she comes home - was not buying one and taking it down. So far she does not plan on extending and that was the plan from the beginning.

Hi!

Just posting to say hi and am excited about dd's CP application - she just received an email with more forms to fill out - any ideas if this means something? I'm just thrilled that she applied and had her phone interview - can you tell my family loves Disney!!

DD's BFF was pended for almost 5 weeks for spring '13 and ended up not getting in. Personally, I think it is a crap shoot with being pended. I think it depends on how popular the roles are that you selected, how many kids they let extend... every kid they let extend keeps one from getting a new spot if I understand how the system works. At least it keeps them from the shorter 5 month program because that is as long as they can extend. I wouldn't give up all hope, but I'd say it's probably a 50/50 shot. You'll just have to wait it out. Sorry! :/

She's still not too happy with me right now haha.
That sounds about right. My Mum's birthday the day after check-in so I'm most likely getting the same talk. Surprise!

She'll really love it and meet people that have the same interests as her! How soon until she applies?

Have a Most Magical Day!

Wow, many congratulations to her! It will be nice to run into a few people from the UK since that's where I'm originally from... Oh, how I miss it!

Ditto for Merchandise!

Have a Magical Day!

With respect, I think your experience may have been a few years ago, before Obamacare. Under the ACA all children are covered on their parent's family insurance plan until they are age 26. It does not matter if they are students, it does not matter if they live at home, it does not matter if they are married.The new law says the insurance carrier must keep the on the plan until age 26 if you have a family policy.

The only exception is if they have a job that offers them health insurance . In that case, even it it is worse coverage, they must accept it and they insurance company has no obligation to keep them on the parent's policy. .

[QUOTE=Traveliz;24660684]Not true on the insurance and that is why its a subject parents might want to discuss on the boards -- it really depends on the parent's insurance policy.

In our case the child has to be in school full time (and that is determined by what the school says is full time) == which would be 12 hours each semester so my daughter did not qualify for the insurance she had been previously covered under. This varies greatly from one company to the next, from one insurance policy to the next. That meant we had to look for alternative insurance (or not) and I could share with other parents what we ended up doing.

With all due respect right back at you I made the post you quoted of mine on 4/23/2008 so almost five years ago and I am aware that things have changed. At the time it was relevant information.

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.
I'm sure I know her then (I'm a CA at MK too)!
