Late applications

Hi guys! I applied on Tuesday, got through the web interview, and had my phone interview this morning. I came across these boards while researching about phone interviews and it helped me A LOT so thank you all
I was just wondering if applying so late would keep me from getting rejected. I felt like my interview went really well. I had the person interviewing me laughing and saying how much she loved Chick Fil A (my job right now). My top roles were QSFB, Merch, Character Attendant, and Attractions. QSFB was my first. I REALLY hope applying so late doesn't keep me from being accepted. I've wanted to do this since my brother got accepted in 2007.

WHEN you apply doesn't affect your standing with the company as much as you might think. Disney puts people on a pending list specifically because they don't want anyone who applies later and is a great candidate to be left out. Because you put down a lot of different roles, I would say you have a fair chance of getting in. Hang in there.

I'm sure this has been asked before, but I just want to confirm that DCP participants have to buy tickets for MNSSHP and MVMCP. My family is starting to plan their trip to visit me in October and I just wanted to know the details so they know if they should get my ticket when they order theirs. Thanks!!

Yes, they do. But, you get discounted tickets for yourself and three people on certain dates. So I would wait to have them buy the tickets until the dates are released for the discounts, then you can buy them.

I'm hoping to do the program the semester after I graduate from college...would I be able to extend my program since I'll have already graduated?

If you're on the CP you can apply for an extension.

So its been about a week since my phone interview, and I am waiting very IMPATIENTLY.!!! Ive applied for the fall program 2012. Ive read through a good portion of this board and I still have some questions.

1. What is the social life like down in Florida between and for the CPs?
2. My best friend also applied around the same time I did and for the same program. How do we make sure that if we both get in that we can be roommates? and what do you think the best number of people to live with in the apartments is?
3. With the passes that we get for our guests to the park, i understand the 6 days of three passes. But do they get in for free or do they get a discount?

1) The social life is what you make of it. I know a lot of CPs got out to House of Blues or Buffalo Wild Wings for nights out. But that's not my thing, and I still have friends; we just hang out at the parks or at each other's apartments.

2)You should be able to request each other ahead of time to ensure you are matched-this is done online. If not, show up together for check in and you can ask to be placed together. I live in a 3BR/6 person right now, and that's a good size, but we don't have quite enough fridge space. However, each bedroom gets its own bathroom. In a 4BR/8 person, there are two fridges, but only two bathrooms. If I were to do it again, I think I would go with a 2BR/4 person, which gets you two bathrooms, and enough fridge space to go around.

3)They get in for free. You bring them to the special turnstiles at the first park you visit that day, and each person (up to three) is issued a 1 day park hopper valid only for that day. However, if you only bring in one person, you don't get to save those other two people for another day. For example, I used four days where I only brought in one person, so I only have two days left, but I could bring in three people on those two days.

Good luck!

Do a google search or take a look at some blogs (Like the one in my signature ) for more information on the types of questions they ask. I think there is thread on this board somewhere that also has some helpful interview information.
