I would have posted this on Tuesday, but I've been in New York until today on a trip to play at Carnegie Hall!

On Tuesday morning I had my phone interview. I think it went very well, although I can't remember for the life of me what my interviewers name was (kind of a busy week) but I remember she had an English or Austrailian accent. She asked me some standard questions about why I want to go, working indoors/outdoors, teamwork, repetetive tasks. She asked me specific questions regarding photopass and Character attendant, and I told her my top three roles were Character Performer (going to Chicago auditions), Attractions, and Character Attendant. It lasted about 25 mins, though she was about 6 minutes late calling. All in all I think it went well and I've been stalking my dashboard ever since!

Sounds like you might have had Jenny. She asked me a lot of similar questions, including one about Main Entrance Ops which was completely out of left field, since I put low interest for it.

Good luck!

I forgot about that one, it was the "what if you were the first person a guest encountered" or something like that. I thought it was either main entrance or photopass, and I honestly don't remember if I put any interest for main gate or not :/

I just got done with my interview. I had Bonnie (I believe she had an accent). It was 15 minutes early and lasted 15 minutes. I think it went well, I could have answered the questions better but I didn't blow it. I had questions on Attractions, Photopass, Quick Service Cashier and Park Greeter. The one question that threw me for a loop was "What is your ideal team?" First I didn't understand what she said and then my brain just blanked. Later my phone decided to cut out on me so I only heard the end of the tattoo question and the next question I heard none of so I was running around my apartment trying to find better signal. It must of been a sight! So here goes the waiting game!

Hey, my name is Mike, im 20, and i live in the Chicagoland area. Currently at a community college finishing up my pre-reqs for the AAS RN program there. Theres a 1 year waiting list to start the program, and ive always wanteed to do the DCP since i first found out about it as a freshman in high school, so this is the perfect timing to do it!

Im shooting for the Fall Advantage, but I'd be ECSTATIC to be accepted to either!

My top 3 Roles:
-Lifeguard
-Recreation
-Concierge

My first boss I had as a freshman at a local waterpark did the DCP when she was in college...ended up staying and working for Disney for 7 years and met her husband in the program before moving back up here. She planted the seed, and now I want a magical disney story of my own!

I applied online on 2/20/13, completed my WBI on 2/21/23, and just had my phone interview with LINDSEY at 1:30 today, 2/22/13.

LINDSEY called me at 1:28 PM, 2 minutes before my start time, and the interview lasted about 20 minutes. She was really engaging and friendly, smile if you get her!

Now comes the waiting game!

PS: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PERFECT RECEPTION. My house is a deadzone and I had to repeat answers because i was cutting out (stupid AT&T), which I would definitely avoid! She was understanding but it is obviously better to avoid this situation!

Congrats to your son!

If either you or your son is on Facebook there is a group that someone just started for those accepted to custodial for Fall 2013.

Search this on Facebook:
Disney College Program Custodial Fall/Fall Advantage 2013

Hopefully there will be people in that group that can help answers his questions

I sadly can't help jobro, but if you don't mind me asking, was that one of his top choices? For what its worth, I've heard its not as bad as people make it out to be.

touchthesky...it wasn't one of his top choices, however he did indicate interest on his ap, and during his interview. He does have a CM "Job Scout" and he said it is also a great role for networking...have also heard other good things about the role as well.

I had custodial. It was actually great because you have TONS of freedom. It's not hard to deal with trash and most of the time you get to walk around and sweep. and restrooms are easy too especially for guys hah. I wasn't excited for it either but then I ended up staying for a second program.

In my interview they brought up BBB which I put high interest on but not as a top 2 (which I regret) I'm a bit upset I forgot to mention that I danced so I have lots of experience with make up but I said I had experience with kids and always did my niece's hair. I sort of want this more than my top choice now haha so I hope I have a chance.
It was weird that they asked me only one question about 6 roles. I also hope 9 minutes wasn't too short if no one saw what I said before haha.

Does anyone know how many are accepted for each role mostly for the Disneyland CP? I see on the Facebook page that several have been accepted for roles such as attractions, photo pass, and retail but only one each so far for hospitality roles (Disney Desk, Front Desk or Guest Services). My top 2 roles were Disney Desk and Guest Services and so far I've only seen one person who was accepted for Disney Desk.

Hey everyone! My name is Kevin. I am graduating this year from the University of Virginia, and this will be my first CP! I had my phone interview on the 19th and found out today (technically yesterday) that I got accepted for main entrance operations!!!

If anyone has previous experience in this role, I would love to hear about it!

Good luck to everyone that is still waiting!!

So I had my interview about a little over 5 hours ago and I think it went pretty well. Interviewer was very nice and it lasted a little over 20 minutes. I just feel like because I was nervous I talked a bit too fast, hopefully that doesn't ruin my chances of getting in though : /.
