no don't worry about the email, mine came a day later and April 26 or 29 is the last day to hear back. I waited about two weeks before I heard anything

My confirmation email for completing the interview didnt come until the next day so dont worry!

As far as housing goes though, I picked my arrival day (only 2 available) but how does housing work? I thought u had a choice when you got down there but on my dashboard it shows my arrival day and then under it says Vista Way Apartments. So do I not get a choice (I was gonna try for Chatham I think)?

Hiya everyone! I'm entirely new to this whole pre-DCP experience and have a quick question.

I've been pending for a little over 2 weeks now, and after the Merchandise and QSFB wave, I'm getting a little worried, haha! (They were my 2nd and 3rd choice) However, I haven't seen anyone accepted into Costuming yet and that happens to be my 1st.

So, I read through these posts and saw that the college board won't wait to choose you for a position, but is this something that only counts for Character Performers or for all positions? Are the positions handed out in a particular order?

(Hm.. Guess that's a little more than a quick question.)

Check in is at Vista Way. Everyone gets their housing assignment once you check in. So you can ask for Chatham at that time.

In regards to Character performers it means they will offer you a position they see you as a good fit for and then pending your audition switch you to performer.

There is really no rhyme or reason for how people are accepted and what roles are given out. Don't stress about trying to figure out a pattern because their isn't one lol. Also just because people have gotten accepted for Merch and QSFB doesn't mean that you won't be offered one of those roles. Hang in there, I'm sure you will hear something soon!

My first Disney experience thanks to the DCP

Hello all,
My name is Jae. I am a Spring '12 graduate of Florida State University and I am currently working to complete my second degree with FSU before going for my masters.

I've been accepted to the DCP Fall '13 and I am beyond excited! Although I am a Florida native, I have never had the opportunity to have the Magical Disney Experience, so this opportunity not only means a lot to me professionally but also personally.

I'm coming in as one of the "older" students (I'm 25), which makes me a tad bit nervous but I felt this would be perfect for me in preparation for a future professional internship. I am really just looking forward to all that the DCP has to offer.

Time to cover up those tattoos and take those piercings out, darn!

Funny thing is I haven't received the Disney Look message, but probably because of several reason...

Hello, excellent name Xion! Definitely stay positive, and keep busy so time goes by quick! Pending is definitely on the better side of everything!

As far as departments for roles go an their acceptances, there's not really a reasoning behind everything. The way I've figured things is that they're giving more available roles out simple enough, whereas lower volume roles are given out sparsely. I haven't heard of many costuming, but again there could be that one person who doesn't go on the internet.

Since Character Performers (Entertainment) roles are per audition, they are the one exception to the rule. Nor are positions handed out in a particular order/fashion as it's on an as-need bassis, really.

You've got pretty good hopes since you chose Merchandise and Quick Service Food and Beverage as there's typically a good amount of availibility for both! Keep Positive!

Have a Most Magical Day!

^^^ This. Don't call 24/25 older. I'm turning 25 in September and my younger sister loves to remind me how old I am and I think I'm still pretty young
