Check out the facebook group for PIs I know a lot of them have been looking for room mates!
Thank you soo much for the advice! I have been utilizing this for a few days and I think I may find something through it.. Thank you!!!

So I have looked all weekend long and I even though I have lived here my whole life, with the exception of college, I never knew how many apartments and communities there are around the Disney area...

Here are a few apartments I looked at over the weekend, but there are still soo many more to come because I too want to make sure I end up in the right community and place for the long haul!!

The Palms Club - Located off of Kirkman, near Millenia and Metrowest Blvd, and about 5 mins from Universal and about 20 mins away from Disney <--- In traffic this will diffidently be a little more. I really liked the community and prices! One bedroom's are priced from 825 to 975 and two bedrooms from 975 to 1050, but there are several discounts right now that made some of those prices about 25 to 75 dollars less... They did not give any discounts for Universal or Disney employees, so thats a con... The community is humongous and offers every amenity that you could ever WANT!!! BUT, my friend and I noticed a lot of high school students that were being somewhat disruptive while we were there, not by doing anything illegal, but they were all by the pool making a lot of noise! SO this one I will not be choosing because of this reason. Technically apartment complex's cannot disclose demographic information, but if you go at the right time, like I did, you can see really what the apartment complex is all about. I know every complex will have it's pro's and con's, but annoying teenages are very big con for me! LOL

Cross Water at Lakeside Village - Located in Windermere and about 10 mins from Disney... All I have to say is WOW!!!! This was by far the best place I have looked at so far... It is a brand new community and has yet to even open all the units, but construction is on the other side of the complex so it wasn't loud at all!! The amenities are perfect and is on a Lake, it just was soo serene and gorgeous!!! It's a little pricer, with one bedrooms from 960 to 990 and two bedrooms from 1190 to 1300. They do give a Disney discount that is applied to the application and security deposit, which is half off. The complex is running a special for the security deposit at ONLY $50 dollars, so between the application and security deposit it will be ONLY $50 dollars. Bad part there is an Administratve fee of $250 that is non refundable, but I am noticing more and more most apartment complexes are now requiring these so I guess it's the trick of the trade. SO overall this place is amazing, modern, and in the perfect location!!!

Alexandria/Park Vue @ Lake Buena Vista - I know that this was already reviewed, but I thought I would just add that their pet fees are outrageous, so if you have one just beware! I was not a fan of this community!

Falcon Square - This is the apartment complex that will house the professional interns this Spring... I decided to look at it for the purposes of being close to the other PI's, but I was unable to look at anything due to the fact the office staff were out on property for over 30 mins and I didn't have time to wait... The community is amazing! It is located in Independence, very similar to Celebration, and the houses surrounding the apartment complex are super adorable! It's kind of far, but it's really amazing so I am going to go look at it again and I will let you know

That's all for now, but I will give you an update once I go to other places
This a big help and I really appreciate you sharing your impressions. Between you and Disneygirlie I feel that I have to real direction for my exploring. Overall I have six days there, but I do want to spend sometime relaxing. Between work, school and the application process...I am so tired. Tonight it might snow, sigh. However I am so grateful to not a an east coast resident that I will not complain anymore.

As for the teenagers, I am like you, I don't dislike them but I have no patience for that much noise. This is exact why I would not like living in a crowded apartment. I like being peaceful at home and seeking noise and excitement elsewhere.

The PI I am hoping for, stated a decision will be made by the end of the week. I have my fingers crossed, but I am trying not get to excited but because there is one spot and five great final applicants. I have decided either way to make the move to Orlando permanent. This is really scary for me but this information helps the process....THANKS!

I wish I could afford crosswater at lakeside village. I know I can't though so that's why I didn't even go tour it. It would have been mean to do that to myself. Great reviews though!

No news at all. It's giving me an ulcer waiting. They have moved on from F&B MI interviews to other things now so hopefully they aren't going to draw out this process.

I did see that someone on the FB boards accepted a Retail MI. That's the only movement I've seen posted for that MI. So hopefully you will hear something within the next few days.

They just heard and no one else has said anything about retail so he may be the first to hear.

Of course it would be a guy to hear first.

Something tells me that females are more high anxiety. Not fair!

Sorry, guys. My anxiety level is causing me to be irrational.

This is going to sound really bad, but do we know of anyone who has received NLIC emails yet?

I've always heard that no news is good news, so I'm not that upset yet for myself. I'm still in interview stage and haven't gotten a NLIC email yet (knock on wood), but I was just wondering if anyone has gotten one. It seems odd to me that someone has gotten offered a retail MI and we haven't heard anything about people who have been NLIC. I would have thought they would have done rejections first and then gone through and done acceptances. Although, what do I know? There's no rhyme or reason to Disney magic!

I haven't seen anything yet. I checked both FB groups. He's the only person to even mention the retail MI. Other ppl just may not be part of those groups or they aren't posting.

He said he had his interview 1 week ago exactly. Maybe his university was the fastest in replying to the check on transcripts? Or maybe his background check came back the fastest?

Thanks. I would just check the groups myself but I used to be a member of one and left because I felt like the mods were too controlling. I made a post and got reprimanded for it which I thought was ridiculous because it wasn't inappropriate so I left.

And the other one I left on accident in the process of leaving the other one haha.

Do you want me to keep you posted or no? Because I have another update if you want it.

Does anyone know what the DWSS application email is all about? I got one today, no movement on the dashboard. I am waiting to hear from Y.E.S., Guest Relations, and Park Event Operations. All three are alumni only.
