Your posts keep making me laugh, you are just too sweet! But yeah, my interview was a week ago today and I think I have already went way past crazy! I keep checking all the time then I have to focus back on my school work! Then I have my two little sisters acting like I don't check it often enough, but I can't complain. They're like little helpers for me <3

I have my phone interview next Thursday night. I am so excited and nervous at the same time. All my life I've wanted to work for Disney, and I'm so glad I'm finally getting the chance to maybe do it.

I have my audition for character performers on my birthday, the 12th. I really would love to be Rapunzel, but I'll take anything at all.

My top choices are character performer, character attendant or boutique.

Awwww oh my gosh that's so nice!!! That is so awesome that you have your little cheerleaders!! When you get in they can come visit you and go to the parks for free and you can inspire them to do the DCP when they're old enough!!

Thank you! I'm just worried about the questions they are going to ask me! I sometimes know what to say but it never comes out hahaha!

What kind of questions can I expect?

Oh yeah I know what you mean! I definitely had some awkward-sounding answers to the questions she asked me.

Just make sure you're ready to answer questions about like your previous work experience (if you have any) and like why you want to do your top roles (what are your top roles again by the way? haha) Mine were Photopass, Vacation Planner, and FSFB... so like for Photopass she asked me if I have any photography experience, and what my favorite photo is; for Vacation Planner she asked if I had a problem handling large amounts of money; and for FSFB she asked what my favorite restaurant in Disney was (I said Sci-Fi ) and she told me about how big of a responsibility they have because they're the ones who decide how to place people at their tables and stuff. She also asked about if I had any tattoos or piercings and stuff (that was one of my awkward ones because I was like "Oh no! Well, except for my ears! Well, only one 2 holes. Well but like 1 hole in each ear!!" haha superrrr awk.) but that was just me babbling

Another question that I stumbled on a little was "If I had a job where I was repeatedly doing the same thing over and over again (which most jobs are like), how would I keep myself interested in what I was doing and how would I treat each new guest that I helped?" This is actually an easy one to think of an answer, but I guess I just wasn't expecting it so I babbled again!

I hope this helps!! (Sorry for the novel)

BUT! CP's do get discounts at WDW restaurants and they have the "Grocery Bingo" at the residence halls. Not really sure how it works yet, but it sounds both interesting and beneficial!

Hahaha that's okay, it's very helpful! I also want to do FSFB what other questions did they ask you for that? My other choices are character attendant, hospitality and attractions.
