It's really not bad, personally I loved my QSFB role.

Last year my dd and a family friend both interviewed the second week of September and did not hear until December 16. The long wait was hugely stressful.

This year, my dd interviewed Tuesday night and heard back Thursday morning. Much better.

It's really not as bad as it seems. I did QSFB in 2008, and it wasn't bad

Anybody get put on carts in qsfb? I'm used to working in a food stand at a theme park by where I live. I'm prepared for any role, so I think that I'll be happy with whatever I'm given!

Annnnnnnnd exhale! Well I did my interview. My interviewer Sarah was very nice and friendly which made me more comfortable. I think it went well overall but I feel like I could've answered a couple of the questions better. Did anyone else feel that way? I'm still shaking. My heart has this intense feeling in it.

I definently felt like that after mine, afterwards I kept thinking of things I should have said or talked about more. I hope you hear soon and get accepted! What are your top choices?

Thanks! I sure hope so. They don't do acceptances on weekends do they? I really want this so bad. I already got rejected from an Entertainment Internship and from a job at the Disney Store in NYC. So I feel like a failure right now. I need to get this. I'm going to cry. Can't take the waiting.

Oh no, do not feel like a failure! When things don't work out, it just means its not meant to be...at this moment. I know you feel like you need to get this, I've been there. And then I didn't get it. Chin up, good things will happen to you.

Last time I applied I was having trouble with a co-worker and when I found out I didn't even get past the first part I was devastated. I needed to get out, needed a change but alas it didn't work out. So now I just taking things in stride. You cannot control if you get this right now, its out of your hands at this point. BUT, remember this is never the end.

I haven't even interviewed yet, so I am so scared that I am going to just bomb the interview and I don't want to deal with a third rejection. So I am right on the same page with you. I know it can be difficult but try to stay positive. =)

I was rejected twice before I got accepted into the College Program. That makes this semester my fourth application and I'm still nervous! I know it's hard, but please don't think of yourself as a failure. Remember how many times Walt himself was turned down? Don't give up on your dreams.

Good luck on your interview! I'm sure you'll do wonderfully. Focus on how much you want to do the Program, not the possibility of rejection (believe me, I know how difficult that can be). Just think happy thoughts and remember to SMILE.

I wasn't, but my friend was. He was by himself mostly, so he was normally pretty bored until it picked up after a parade and he would be slammed for an hour, and then it would be dead again. On the plus side, it meant that we could go hang with him while he was bored, which we would often do. He worked in AK, and would have no guests for hours on end, so we would chat until he got some. His managers never seemed to mind thankfully, as long as he did his job and we didn't "push" guests away with our presence.
