No need to apologize, I don't think I said it. But yes, I got pended yesterday afternoon. Five days after my interview.

Just curious, because I haven't been looking at Facebook pages, but are there many instances where people have been waiting a long time only to get pended/NLIC? Because from what I've seen, people are getting pended/NLIC pretty quickly. But, I know there isn't a pattern, so I was just curious.

Also, to those trying to find patterns, I had my phone interview last Wednesday, my top choices were attractions and merchandise, and I haven't heard anything back.

I haven't seen anyone on Facebook who has been waiting this long be pended. But I mean it still could happen.

I'm trying not to loose it. Haha!

I just hope we hear good news soon! :
Glad I'm not the only one!! Like I said above, I will gladly wait until the last day if they will give me one of my top choices!

Puts my vote in just a very very random sequence of notifications.
I have no idea how it works. I have heard there is no pattern for roles, but it seems like a lot of the people who have been accepted on Facebook are for Merch and QSFB.

I'm just so nervous and I want this so much! If I don't get into the CP or a PI I don't know what I will do I know this is everyone's dream too but I've really put all my eggs in this basket. I guess I better start applying for jobs around home so I wont be unemployed when I graduate

Congratulations to those who have been accepted! To everyone else, I hope something great comes of it!

Ah, that most definitely makes sense! I've had theatre experience, but not much ride/operation experience. I'm more of building, designing, and constructing sort of guys that builds what you're then paid to operate! I think you'll find transportation, quite similar but still unique.

I'm quite interested to see what location you're given as it really sounds awesome, and I really wish I Would have applied for that position!

You definitely chose more-open and available roles, as from what I've figured Custodial, QSFB, and Merch have pretty high capacities. I'm sure something excellent will come of it since you're so willing!

Kate, this has happened before, mainly for those folk who apply for both the DCP and Internships as I could imagine where they're trying to place you. Just finding a best fit is all. I expect you'll hear back sometime soon since you're alumni and a previous CM. By the way, did they happen to ask anything in relation to being a CM for your CP interview?

Lyanne, I hope you hear back SOON too!!!

Luck, and Have a Magical Day!

I know how you feel. I graduated in December and did not get into the Spring program so I'm taking one class just so I could try again. I don't have any backup plan at all and I'm just counting down the days until I can reapply. I also haven't been looking for a job just in case I get into the DCP.

Good luck to you and everyone else waiting to hear back and congrats to everyone that was already accepted!

I was thinking about doing that if I didn't get accepted. Do you mind me asking how its working out for you? I'm just wondering if it might be more trouble than its worth. Having to get accepted to the school and everything again...

I just learned in our FB group for Disneyland CP that they aren't accepting any more people in Guest Services, Front Desk or Disney Desk. From what I understand, people are being told this in their interview. This is very disheartening since those are my top 3 roles.

Has anyone else heard anything like this?

Not at all! It really wasn't bad because I was still considered a student, even though I graduated, so I didn't have to be accepted to the school again. So I simply signed up for one class just like I would have done before. I am taking a digital photography class that I had wanted to take but never found the time. I love it and is a little different only having one class, but I think it's definitely worth it especially since it means I get another chance to apply. I'm also hoping that this class will help me get a Photopass role.

On my CP interview she didn't really ask too much. She asked why I wanted to do the program again but she wanted to know how my experiences outside of Disney have prepared me for the roles I chose. I tried to talk about my previous CP in front desk as much as I could by mentioning it here and there. I felt uneasy after my interview as she was very formal.

On my PI interview we talked a little bit about my previous roles as well. I think that interview went so much better than the CP. She told me if I am offered the CP to accept and then if they offer me a PI I can switch over, so I was under the impression that I would hear back about the CP first.

So I am just trying to wait patiently until I hear something!

Does anyone know if you would be able to switch from a PI to the college program? I've got my heart set on the CP, but I also applied for a couple PIs that I don't really think I have a shot at, but who knows. I figured I'd hear about the CP first, but now that I'm pending I'm not sure about that.

Does arrival date affect apartment choices?

Does anyone know if choosing a later arrival date will mean fewer apartment choices? I really want to live in Patterson, so I don't want to choose the later date if that will hurt my chances. Thanks!

I'd like to know this as well. Because my school semester doesn't end until the 24 of May (My last class would be on the 22nd) so I'd have to do a later checkout but I really want to live in Chatham.

I don't think it makes a difference, they have a set number for each day. How many at each complex available depends on the spring advantage people leaving.

I'm one of those "this is my only shot" people, and it makes me feel a tiny bit better to not be alone. I think that's why pending is so frustrating--I didn't attend my school's recent career fair because I had such high hopes for the CP.

As far as apartment choices go, it's hard to say. People are coming and going all of the time, so it really depends on what's available. I had a super small check-in day, arrived at 9 am, and was only given Vista as an option (my date was June 14 on my last CP because I did the Quarters check-in). I heard there weren't any Patterson spots offered to my group, and only a few Chatham spots. If I get accepted, I'm hoping for Chatham so I have a new experience, but I really didn't mind Vista the last time!

If anyone is interviewing today, Heads up! The system has been down for an hour now. I just got the call at my interview time that I will need to reschedule it. Then they gave me a number to call later. So don't be surprised if you get a call like that!

Honestly, it all depends on who is leaving when you arrive and what apartment complex they are in. I'm arriving Mon May 13th so If the people who are leaving Fri May 10th all live in Chatham and Vista then those are the only places that will have openings. Getting there earlier on check in day does improve your odds of getting what you want, but there is no guarantee that what you want will be available in the first place.
