You have 10 days to accept the offer, and paying the fees is one step in the process of accpeting

I was wondering if anybody new why attractions, lifeguard, concierge and hospitality have their separate sections when selecting an arrival date?

I'm pretty sure it is to spread out when people with those roles check in. That way there are only a certain number of spots for each role on each date. This would make the training process a lot easier. I'm not sure why for attractions but for Hospitality and Concierge you need to take a week long class at Disney University. Each class can only hold probably 12-15 people and as far as I know they only have two classrooms. In the unlikely event that ALL the hospitality and concierge people wanted to check in on the same date they is no way they would be able to accommodate all of them for training! Same thing for lifeguard as they take their swim test and have to go through the classes to be certified.

Attractions may just be based on operational needs that they would rather stagger them throughout the season.

That's just my assumption but I think I might be on the right track as it makes sense if you think about it.

You have to complete all three steps in ten days from receiving your acceptance email. After you accept, they say you'll get an email "within 24 hours" but I got mine in ten minutes or less.

So here's my theory. I think Disney got everyone's applications and sorted them based on top roles. I think they "pended" those people who were sorted into their specific roles and they are evaluating each role as a whole. Yes there are exceptions, like the first week or so of acceptances people were accepted for many different roles. But as of last week or the week before almost all the acceptances are coming in waves and are usually role specific. I feel better about being pended assuming they just threw me in the pile with my top role and are going to evaluate me against everyone else once they get to my top role. Just a theory and is no way factually backed up, but it makes some sense. Sending good vibes out to everyone else who has been pended!!

I like that logic! But, what if someone's second choice is a category that is chosen/staffed before their first choice? If that happens, by Disney waiting for some people's top choices, it automatically takes them out of contention for their second choice.

Congrats to everyone that has been accepted, and best of luck to those still waiting!

Lego606, Congrats on Disneyland! I'm interested to hear how things differ.

It honestly makes the most sense too, since they're staggered about every other week which gives enough time for check-in, plus an extra week for training.

Attractions would fall under this as well because of the possibility needing extra training, or specialty training for certain roles and memorization.

Have a Magical Day!

Congrats to both of you! Are both of you Disneyland or just you, lego606? What roles were you offered? I hadn't heard of any acceptances today for Disneyland so it was good to hear (I'm pended for DL).

After almost a month my pending status got changed to acceptance this morning! I'll be working attractions in Fall Advantage and I'm so excited to go down there and meet everyone. If anyone accepted for Fall Advantage is interested in photography then they should message me because I would love to have someone to walk around the parks and take photographs with. Good luck to all of those who are still waiting; I look forward to seeing all of you in Orlando.
