Just got my acceptance letter! Main Entrance Operations Fall 2013! Wooooo


Have to admit, I am a bit worried that I'll be driving a tram or stuck out directing people where to park. I'm a bit bummed that I won't get to see and experience as much stuck at the front but I'm going to make the best of it.

Is there anyone here who has done Main Entrance Ops? What's it like?

Does anyone know how to ask about switching a role for medical reasons? Because when I did custodial before after about 5 months I got a horrible breakout of acne, like the cystic kind and I had to wait until I was home to go to the doctor and get a prescription but it's not totally gone still and my mom thinks it's from when I was there. My skin before was normal and no one else in my family ever had that happen. I wonder if that's enough for me to switch. I guess I'd probably have to get proof or something though?

and I'm not meaning I'd lie or do anything to get out of custodial because I did have fun in it anyway but I definitely don't want to deal with a horrible face again haha.

Congrats!

I am so sorry, school as been crazy this past week due to spring break next week, so I haven't been able to get on in a while. But I just wanted to say congrats to everyone who has been accepted!! I am so happy for you and I know that the experience will be wonderful! I am still pending, but staying positive in the process. So for all of those in my boat, good luck and stay positive! We will all hear something back soon!

Just a quick question, has anyone been accepted that was pended? Sorry if this was posted earlier and I just missed it!

Once again, congrats to everyone!!

Oh, sorry, should've clarified. I got in about a week or two ago with the first DLR Attractions wave but only posted just now. That said there were a few QSFB Restaurants, PhotoPass, and Vacation Planners at around 10 AM EST this morning

Congratulations to both!

My roomie from my last program work MEO but not in the parking. She worked MK turnstiles and also did Parade Audience Control around the park.

Also, if I'm not mistaken, MEO in MK are the ones who handle the fastpasses and the queue at Town Square Theater to meet Mickey and the princesses but I don't know if they train all the CPs for that.

This thread about MEO should be helpful:

Nope. The pending email states that you will hear back by April 19th. You are still in consideration otherwise they would have just told you were "No Longer In Consideration". Hopefully they are just trying to find the right spot for you!

If you're not NLIC then you have nothing to worry about Just know that you could be waiting until April 19th to hear anything back. Around the 3rd-4th week that you're pending you should receive an email stating something like you're still pending and we haven't forgotten about you. Hang in there!

I'm trying my best to hang in there! The waiting is so hard haha. I check my email like every 5 minutes! I just have to be patient! It's hard because I have talked about this program for like 2 years! Now, it's here and I'm freaking out! I really hope I hear something soon!

Do you have an iPhone? If so, you can make the Disney e-mail address a "VIP" and set a special ring tone to it. You can even customize what the vibrations do if your phone is on vibrate. That's what I did.

Congrats to both of you! I checked my Dashboard this afternoon and got NLIC'd. This was my last time but I'm still in progress for one PI so hopefully that will work out.

I got my acceptance email today as an Attractions CM! I still plan on auditioning for a character performer role March 17. If I were to decline this position before my audition, would it hinder my results for that?

If anyone could answer that, that would be great! Congratulations to you all!!!!

Hopeful future CP performer!

If you decline the attractions position and you don't get a character position then you won't get a position at all. I was told to accept whatever position I was given then go to auditions and they will move you.
Also, if you get placed as a character and you change your mind about wanting to be a character, you also lose your position; I may be wrong about that but that's what I was told by someone today.
I know the first part is correct though, that's what my phone interviewer told me.
