I'd hate for someone to steal Jess's thunder and announce for her. Let's just say she received some VERY good news today regarding her College Program application!

CONGRATULATIONS! You must be so excited. I saw the news just after you posted, but didn't want to say anything!

Do you have a spot you'd like to work as concierge?

I am slowly catching up one here. Working down here has been crazy. I would have loved to heve met you when you came down, but theres always another time lol. I really hope you get accepted onto the CP. It has been one of the best things that has happened to me. Your interview seemed to go really well and a lot similar to mine and I was still given one of my top roles even though I wasn't asked a lot of questions about it. I think you will be great and get a role that you really love

Anyways, can't wait to hear about it and I know you're gonna get it!
Aww that's so exciting!! You definitely should! I have heard so many positive things. Thank you!

Aww thank you! It seems like she was! I hope you enjoyed the live updates! I think we are putting our DLR trip on the back burner too, so I know how you feel! Thank you, we did! Thanks for reading!

I am sending good thoughts your way that you get accepted and that you don't have to wait too long to find out.

Have such a super time in Disney! Can't wait to see the tweets/instagram posts on your trip... gets me excited for my trip... which is in 36 days and 18 hours (but who's counting?!)
Thank you so much! Yes, it was tricky but I had it planned out and it worked really well! Haha I actually DID find out in Disney, so I am quite excited to share about the whole experience! Thank you so much!

I had an amazing time - I hope you enjoyed the updates! Your trip is soon! Have a magical time!

I'm sooo excited for you to experience F&W and I can't wait to hear how your whole trip went! Ahh I am going so soon and you going is like the perfect thing to tide me over. :P hahaha.
HI!!!!!!! Ahhh oh my God that meal was so good. Thank you so much - it really is! It's definitely the right thing to do! I am THRILLED.

IT WAS SO FUN OMG. I love F&W! I'm so excited for you to go in only A WEKK AND A HALF. eeeeep!

You are so sweet! Thank you so much! Those are such kind words!

That is kinda sad that the interviewer would not be very personable. I think if you ever had her job you would remember what its like to be interviewed and would be very happy and excited for the young person being interviewed. In my opinion you are exactly what Disney employees should be. Someone who wants everyone to be happy and have great Disney experiences. Its all in your attitude.
Anyway. Everyone who reads your reports knows what a sweetheart your are and that you deserve to be accepted to the program and be at the top of the list for whatever position you want.
Princess Jess!
You did so great remembering the interviewers name and asking her about her experiences with Disney. Nice Job!!!!
I'm glad you can live vicariously through my experience!
Exactly! But maybe she just was being monotonous not to get me too excited. Who knows! She did a good job assigning me to a good role though
You are too sweet! Thank you so much for those kind words!
Haha thank you! A nice Disney touch, right?

All I can say is WOW!! I'm only on page 20....it will take me forever to get all the way through it.

Thanks for the great ideas I am getting from your TR.

That is totally fine! Better late than never!!
Aww thank you so much! Feel free to skip through the comments and just read the chapters if you want. That's the important part!
You're welcome! Thank you SO MUCH for reading! I'm glad I could help!

You sound like you were confident and articulate in your phone interview - thanks for sharing all of the details. My first thought when I saw that you were pended was that they definitely wanted to put you in a role that is perfect for you so are awaiting that position since you are a keeper!! If you must await a response why not do it while at WDW?

Have a great trip and let us know the hightlights, low lights and all the fabulous details!
I had an AMAZING time! Thank you!
Aww thank you! I got my acceptance letter and that definitely seems like the case! I will post my announcement soon. Thanks for all of the positive thoughts.
Will do! Thank you!

Hey you know what? You should come join the Dis Diva's in Disneyland in Feb. Lots of us going and sharing our love for Disney.
Thank you! I can't wait to share the results!
I had an AMAZING trip! Thank you!
I would love to... but I'll be on my College Program in February Thanks though!

Woah, I can't believe I just caught up on all of that. I need to take a breather now lol I'm so glad though I caught up before baddabing this was done. :O Well, I love all the Disney facts you rambled off in the MK update, and just an edit, the effect used in the ballroom scene at the Haunted Mansion is called "Pepper's Ghost" not Magic, but I knew what you were talking about so that's all good and Little Leota at the end of the ride has a different voice... okay, I'll stop being a Disney know-it-all for ya.

Sorry to hear you didn't get into your school's show, I've heard great things about Urinetown But INTO THE WOODS!!!! OMG so jealous! Stephen Sondheim <3 Huge theater geek right here, no shame. It really is a great show and a VERY big cast so I'm sure you have a good chance at getting in. I recommend for songs, "Children Will Listen" since I think the Witch is a soprano and same with the Baker's Wife both great roles. "Last Midnight" is also another good song if you are looking to play the Witch, but I'm not sure if either of these are soprano, but Bernadette Peters played the Witch so I have a feeling. I do recommend watching the filmed on Broadway movie with Bernadette Peters, it would probably help. Good luck with the auditions when the come up!

Can't wait to read more and hear about your most recent trip!

P.S. Didn't know if you saw my tweet, but since I don't want to spoil anything... Congrats!
