Hey there I've been lurking the forum for awhile but I figured now would be a good time to start posting since I got accepted.

My name is Dylan, I'm 20 Y/O. I live in Tucson AZ, going to pima for my general education courses with no major in sight. I'm pretty excited about the whole aspect of working and living at Disney.

Tell me about it! We had SNOW here in Pennsylvania yesterday. SNOW! I can't wait for FL, though I know once I'm dying in the FL heat I'll be wishing I was up North again.

Have you gotten an acceptance email yet? I didn't get my folder until about 2 weeks after I got the email

Wow, snow in April is ridiculous! We've had more snow than I can remember ever having so I'll welcome the heat. Nope, still waiting to be accepted. it still hasn''t even been 2 weeks yet so I'm not worried.....yet

Hi, I'm Vera.

I'm 24 and from Charleston, SC. I'm doing the Summer Alumni Program this summer and my role is Housekeeping. I did my first program in Spring of 2008 and I was in QSFB. I'm so excited to get back to Disney World as I haven't been since 2008!

I never properly introduced myself. I just got excited and started posting :P

My name is Brittany! I'm 20 years old (21 in 3 days). I live in Texas and I'm studying Theater. It's been a goal of mine to work for Disney and after years of sending my application to the Disney Store and not getting interviews I just applied to the park itself and got accepted into the College Program.

I will be arriving one June 13th to get my Fall Advantage started!

I'm looking forward to meeting new friends and all of the experiences (good and bad) that I will have.

That is about all I can think of to write. Any questions :P

Hi all,
My name's Ebz, I'm originally from New Zealand, currently living in Paris, France. Erm, I'm 24 and I have 2 BAs, one in French and one in English, working on a Post Graduate Diploma in French at the moment. Love travelling and learning other languages! Also love Disney Couldn't forget that!
I worked for the Mouse from Jan 2010 to Jan 2011, first 6 months as a Lifeguard at both Typhoon Lagoon and Crescent Lake (Yacht & Beach Resort/Boardwalk Resort), then the second 6 months in Attractions at Innoventions in EPCOT (Sum of All Thrills, Piggy Bank Adventure, UL, Papermaking, IBM Runtime, Velcro's Slapstick Studios, Information Board).
Would be happy to answer any questions you might have (especially for ICPs not working in the Pavilions)

Reintroducing myself, because I haven't been around in a while and I've decided to change the term for which I'm applying.

Hiii! I'm Emily! I'm from the NYC suburbs, but I go to school in upstate New York. I'm 18 years old and I just finished my freshman year as an English major with concentrations in creative writing and global studies, and a minor in theater. I'm planning on applying for Fall 2012, so I'll be applying less than a year from now! I am SO insanely excited! I always wanted to spend some time working for the mouse, but never thought I would do a CP. Then I started doing a ton of research on the program, and I realized just how perfect it was for me. I'm an absolute Disney NUT (my vice is actually DCL... but living/working/learning at WDW is a dream) and I know that here, I'll find other people to be a freak with!

Amy Simpson here. 22 years old. Originally from Manchester, England, but have lived in various US states for the past 14 years. I currently live in the Seattle area on Washington, but recently graduated from Grand Valley State University near Grand Rapids, Michigan. My degree is a Bachelor of Social Work. I'll be arriving to check in on August 31st, and I'll be working attractions though I have no idea which one yet - my mum thinks I'd be great at the Haunted Mansion because I can keep a straight face through most anything.

Speaking of, one of my favorite Disney memories was just last summer when two little girls in line at Haunted Mansion conspired with their father, and when the cast member opened the doors to give her spiel they jumped at her to give HER the fright. She nearly lost control and was barely able to stop herself from laughing, couldn't recover well enough to do her bit, and instead just glared and pointed. It was bloody brilliant.

Canuck here

Hi Peeps,

I'm 25, from Ottawa Canada. I'm studying at Carleton University in Ottawa, a double-major in Classics and anthropology.
I love the super old disney movies (bambi, panochio, dumbo, etc), although these days I prefer some of the newer ones like Mulan that actually support cool females character who don't wait around for muscular males to rescue them (yes it is hard to reconcile disney and feminism. But I'm trying, I'm trying)!

I love many things (see my profile for details) and would be happy to chat about all of them!
