I'm incredibly excited! I applied yesterday, and received the ability to do the web interview almost immediately after, and then I was told I was a strong candidate and scheduled a phone interview on the 22nd.

Hi, I'm Rebecca, I'm 18, going to be 19 in March, and I'm in my second semester at Daytona State College. I'm majoring in Creative Writing and minoring in English with a Creative focus.

I'm really jittery and nervous right now because my phone interview is in less than fifteen minutes so please excuse any typos or errors.

Hey all! My name's Anna, I go to Kalamazoo Valley Community College, and I applied for the third time in my life this weekend. The first two times I applied I got denied, but I'm really really confident about getting in this time! I've grown a lot since the last time I applied. I'm so excited that I got through the WBI this time! My phone interview is scheduled for Sunday the 24th at 4:45 so I have quite a while to practice interview questions and be unneccesarilly nervous about the whole thing. :D

I'd really like to do attractions, but I'm worried I'd be excluded from consideration in that area because I don't have a driver's license. :/ I'm really up for almost all of the roles, so long as I get to work at Disney, since I've dreamed about working for Disney since wayyyyy before I was even in college. The only roles I really don't think I' be fit for would be Lifeguard, Recreations, (I'm not the strongest of swimmers, and both those are described as needing that) and Transportation (because of the no-license dealie).

Good look to everyone, I hope to see you all this fall! :D

I won't get a break long enough to take it until 12:30, and if they sent the email originally at 11, I'm worried!

I appreciate everybody's help! This is way more stressful than it was 3 years ago!
Ahhh that sounds so distressing! I would get up early and call them ASAP to explain the situation. I wonder why they only gave you 24 hours for it the WBI; I got three days, and that confuses me. Have you possibly taken it in the last 6 months? I think the answers carry over and maybe you don't have to take it? I'm just trying to guess things and be helpful, sorry if that's not at all.

Oh! You're fine! I haven't taken the WBI in 3 years since I applied last (And got in, so it did work). I applied for the program right before that, in August 2009 for the Spring 2010 program, and actually failed the WBI which caused for a little bit of an IT headache when I went to apply for the Fall 2010 program. But that was something that was fixed through email and not a timely matter at all. I'm just so confused as to why I would get an email saying I only had 24 hours to take the WBI, and if I didn't take it within that time frame then it would be assumed I wasn't interested anymore, especially since I'm an alumnus. And why would I get an email but no link anywhere to the WBI?

My sisters seem to think I should just email my professor and let him know of the situation. He seems like a really reasonable guy, but I hate trying to pick between school and Disney, especially when it's for the only class I need to graduate.

Have people heard of this happening? Or am I a crazy case?

Just wondering, how much time do you have on the first day to settle in? I live out in Utah so it would be a too far of a drive for my old car so I was just going to fly. I won't be bringing anyone to help me so I'm just a little worried.

There is a lot of time to settle in during your first day. Depending on how many people are in line ahead of you at check-in you'll have time to at the very least drop your luggage off in your room before heading to casting. If you're not on the first bus to casting then you'll have maybe an hour or two to unpack your luggage. After casting you'll likely have a housing meeting at some point in the afternoon so again here is more time, at least another hour or two, to set things up. After the housing meeting the rest of the day is yours to do whatever. It should be plenty of time to make your bed hang clothes in the closet or whatever you need to do. If you can, catch a ride to walmart or target with someone who has a car because after a day like check in day, you really don't want to try to fight all of the new arrivals on the J bus on their way to walmart.

So I did my phone interview on Sunday, and I was just wondering if there is a possibility that I will hear from them before two weeks? I'm very anxious to hear! haha! For all of you people that have done it already, how long did you have to wait until you heard if you got in after the phone interview??

Was that a bad idea to put high interest for most of the jobs?
Hi Christine! I'm Rexburg, Idaho, so we're kind of neighbors! it's not bad to put high interest for most jobs. At least when I had my phone interview, she told me that no matter what rank of interest you put on the roles, you were going to get considered to every one equally (except the ones you put no interest in.). Which I thought was a little weird, considering I freaked myself out as well when I was deciding how high to rank things. Haha!

I wish I had known that! Then I would've put more no interest haha if they give me custodial I'll be pissed. It's a great role but I had it for 9 months I don't want it again haha.

just because you are in that role doesn't mean you can't pick up shifts on the hub. for example I worked housekeeping last time and I picked up holiday parties, screaming fan shifts like all the time.

Some people on the Facebook page are starting to get notifications. Last night pending went out and today accepted went out as far as I can tell.

That is weird. Especially the 24 hour thing cause I am pretty sure it is 3 days. I would call and see if you can get an extension because of what happened so you can still go to class and then take the WBI later.

Mine still says in progress. Does that mean pending or does it mean that I just need to relax and wait until I get a real answer?
