There'll also be a tonne of people there who have never been to WDW before - some of my best mates from my prog were first timers to Disney when they arrived to start the ICP, but it's safe to say that they're 'fanatics' now!

There'll be a massive mix of people there on your interview day - you'll have a blast Jack!!
As a first timer, I was not going to let that get in my way
I'd been to DLP 3 times and that's when I realised that that's what I wanted to do, I'd never been to America before either so I had no clue what to expect.
I did my homework before the interview and remembered what it was that made me want to work there and it paid off!

The best year of my life and I soon found my feet when I got there!
I made some of the most amazing friends who, even though now live all over the place I still see a lot!!

Fingers are crossed for you!

Okay update time!

My interview on Monday went really well I thought. We had interviews in groups of 10 and basically you just had to make your voice heard or you would be stuck as obviously working at Disney you need to be able to talk. Well lets just say I made sure I said my part. I needed to make sure my points were across without interfering or being rude to others.

We found out today whether or not we would progress to final interviews. All day waiting, then at 6.11 tonight, the email came.


So right now I am on cloud 9 as this is just mad, I can't believe it at all. I am 1 interview away from the dream summer job. So next Monday (22nd) I am off to London again but to Disney HQ for my interview!! To say I am excited is an understatement. This is just a dream and I hope that I can get everything across in my interview to show that I would be perfect at this job as I know I can be!

I'll keep you all updated with how things go and such as this is a huge thing for me. I could have cried tonight reading that email so lets just hope now.

All your thoughts and wishes mean so much. This truly could be the most amazing summer in my life.

Thanks again

Thank you all so much for the wishes.

I will cry either way!! I want this so bad so hopefully I get to show the actual Disney interviewers that I would be perfect in this job.

And Wayne - I messaged him the other day as I saw he got into uni which is great!! And definitely! If I do get out there we will have to make sure to meet up at some point!

Keeping positive thoughts up and just going to give everything I have next week.
