Also, I don't do very well standing in the sun for long periods of time. I'd be better off working indoors or in a well shaded area. If I were to mention that in my interview, would it have any effect on whether or not I get accepted? Thanks.
As long as you mention the sun thing to your interviewer they should be able to tell you what your options would be, however from what I've read and heard the interviewers can be very understanding as long as you mention it to them.

Regarding when you can interview they are currently doing presentations in schools across the nation. If a presentation is not scheduled to come to your school you can always watch the e-presentation at disneycollegeprogram.com and then schedule a phone interview after.

So i'm kinda bummed that i can't do it this year but i will wait and do it try again next fall..or next spring..so who knows.. THanks for all your help
I am a firm believer that you are the creator of your future. If you want to do the CP in your second semester it is up to you, not the advisor (they are only there to "advise" not to tell you what to do. However, I am not certain of the level of impact the school may have on you actually getting in. If this is something you truly want to do, there is no reason why you couldn't do the CP and come back, then go again. Ask Joanna She has done it 3 times now. All it does is set you back on your graduation. (I think)

I'm talking to my adviser and the head of my dept about doing CP in Fall of 08 and trying to get credit for it and had a quick question that hopefully someone will know here ...if you do one of the advantage programs, can you take more than one of the collegiate classes, like the Hospitality Management, HR, etc? Thanks!

I hope this isn't a dumb question, but how do I schedule a phone interview? Can I do it online? You'll have to forgive me, I've been looking into doing the WDW college program for a year now and have been to two presentations, but I kind of put it on the back burner for a while so I forgot a lot of details.

Well, if you go to a live presentation it gets taken care of there. But if you do the online presentation it will tell you what to do after you watch.

Help??!!!

Okay here's the situation. I'm driving down from PA w/my dad for the CP, we are leaving friday and hes flying home on Monday. I emailed my recruiter and she said we have a meeting thats from 1230-2:30 and if you don't get moved in before you leave at 11:30 then you do it when you get back. Here's the issue. My dad would like me to take him to the airport for his flight but it can't be an afternoon flight due to the meeting. His main purpose for going down with me is to help me drive and move some stuff in.

So what should I do? He didn't want me to have a Wed move-in date bc of missing work so what should I do? See if he would like to take a nite flight or leave the next morning? Any advice? What time are all the meetings done on move-in day??

So I don't know if this has been answered already but this thread is super long...I was wondering if Disney has a policy on calling in sick. I've never called in sick when I wasn't actually sick (or had an infection from bones left in my cheek from wisdom tooth surgery and I couldn't really talk) and I would never call in if I actually wasn't. I rarely get sick but I was wondering if they require doctor's notes for sick days. Getting a doctor's note sucks for me because I have bad health insurance so my copay is really high. Thanks

To be on the safe side, it would be good if you booked a morning flight for your dad for the following Tuesday morning. I had my first day housing meeting at 12:00, and it lasted till about 2:00. If you check in later in the morning, then you will probably have the late afternoon housing meeting. I'm not sure what time that starts though, but it should last 2 hours as well.

ya, i dont really know what to do, we plan on checking in as early as possible but i have a feeling he may be taking an early flight out the day of check-in. I guess this is something we will have to talk about over the weekend. I know he does not want to miss a lot of work so I dunno? If I get him an early tues morning flight would I be able to take him to the airport then??

Thought I'd ask this too, what kind of reasons would they NOT accept people?
(Since it was said it happens rarely) but when it does, what are the usual reasons?

If you plan on being at check-in very early, then you would have the first housing meeting, which would be over around 2:00. So it might be possible to book a late afternoon/evening flight that day (after the housing meeting), but you should plan for possible delays, just in case.

If you got him an early Tuesday morning flight, you might be able to take him to the airport. It would depend on how early the flight is because Day 2 of check-in starts at 8:30 AM.

1) Sounding very unenthusiastic about working for Disney.
2) Having a criminal record (I think?).

Ok thanks. I was nervous during the interview, so I'm worried how I sounded. I didn't sound uninterested or bored with it or anything, I was just really nervous, and I talked about how Disney was my dream job and how energetic I am. But ugh I wish I wasn't so nervous T_T. I wanted to be all excited like, but the fact my phone had issues before the interview didn't help. Sorry folks for all these questions, I'm just really anxious ^_^;;.

Yes. Each time you call in it is one point. Then 3 points= 1 repremand. After 4 reps (I think) you get terminated.
