would love go hear from those who have taken the non credit classes?
thanks!
I took Disney heritage on my first program and it was a lot of fun!!! There's only a couple days where you go to the parks but the class days are awesome cuz you learn a ton about the history.

Disney heritage would be number 1 on my list of classes to take. Is it hard to get into this class or any of them? Is it first come first serve or are you selected for something like Disney heritage based on your academics or something?

How long?

Hi! I'm sure this question has already been asked but I can't get through all 3,000 replies to check, haha. So my phone interview is on Wednesday, and I was just wondering how long it usually takes for them to get back to you on whether or not you've been accepted after the phone interview. They said it would be a few days between my online survey and my next e-mail if I made it through that, but it only took about five minutes. But I'm sure that's more automated than the phone interviews. Should I expect to wait days, multiple days, weeks...?

I took it after being extended so I went into the education office and signed up the first day I think. It's all done differently now so I don't know how hard it is.

They will usually let you know how long it may take during your phone interview. Normally you will hear something within two weeks(whether that's acceptance, pending, or rejection)

I know if you do fall and extend into spring, you get another set of main entrance passes. Is it the same if you do spring (or spring advantage) and extend through fall? Or is it just because fall into spring is a new year?

For QSFB, you're given shoes to wear.

Hello!

I applied for the Disney College Program on the second week applications were open, and then pended. I just attended auditions two weeks ago, in hopes for the character performer role. I did fairly well, and told I would hear on April 20th.

Anyways to my question - The presentation for the DCP is coming to an in-state college, and I am wondering if it is worth going. I did go to a presentation when I was applying for Spring 2011, which was informative. Is it worth attending the college presentation for the Disney College Program again?

Thanks, and Have a Magical Day!

I say go! Then you could maybe ask about the pending thing in person (also I went to the audition and got cut first round)

I'm definitely going to think about it, considering it is a 1-2 hour drive away. I know the folks running are a somewhat judgmental bunch, and I have been before.

(Sorry to hear you got cut, at least you tried your best! )

Thanks, and Have a Magical Day!

So I just found out that my program was accepted for extension until August. I'm switching roles to Merchandise and I have paid my fees. Now I really wanna know where I'm going to be exactly. They said I would find out after I paid my fees but I haven't heard anything. I see people in the facebook group know where they are to be. Is there an email that is sent out? Do I look on the Hub? Do I have to call? I'm really impatient to know where I'll be!

I'm not positive since I didn't extend my program, but I think if you go to your training schedule on the Hub, it tells you where you'll be. I wish I could remember exactly where that is but I think it's the Development tab on the right side? And if I remember correctly, some people's training took longer to show up on the Hub than others.
