Fall 2012 Disney College Program Applicants

So I saw a thread for Fall Advantage, but not one for regular Fall 2012! I figured I'll start it with applications coming up very soon!

A little about myself: I am yellowlabforever (or YLF), 20 year old Sophomore (will be turning 21 right as the program begins) and have been a member of the Disboards since about 2009. My favorite Disney movie is Lilo and Stitch and my favorite Disney television show is Phineas and Ferb. I also love Team Starkid. Joey Richter's my favorite, closely followed by Lauren Lopez

I am a music education major, and I play the bassoon! I am also in my University's marching band and orchestra. I play in my first real pit orchestra for Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutti in February.

I also just got back from a few days trip to the Grand Floridian, and I'm working on my trip report for that as well

So with applications opening soon, I'll start this off with a couple of questions!

Quote:
Why do you want to do the college program, and what are your top five roles?
I'll start!
I want to do the college program because I feel it will be a good first step into the Disney company itself. I noticed that there was a Music Education Professional Internship only available to college program grads a while back, and of course I love WDW, so it seems natural to me to apply (it's been a dream of mine since high school)! Plus it will give me the work experience with people I need in order to further myself as a music educator, and best of all I get to work at WDW, my happy place

On top of that, Fall 2012 is when I'll be having my 21st birthday. What better way than to spend it in WDW itself, possibly working in one of the parks!

As for my top five roles, they are
1) Attractions (preferred: Soarin, or anywhere in Epcot/DHS would work)
2) Main Entrance Operations
3) Concierge/Hospitality
4) Merchandise
5) QSFB
(and possibly I might audition for Character Performer, will wait for audition lists to be put up)


So here it is! Introduce yourself, say hi, answer the questions, say how excited you are to apply for the college program, anything really! This is a thread for us Fall 2012 applicants to completely enjoy ourselves as we go through the process!

I've heard that they'll be up around the 23rd, although I've also heard the 20th. It seems like the general consensus of the Facebook group is around the 20th-23rd or so, but these are just rumors.

I just want to apply! I'm really excited to go through the application process.
