Wow. Thanks for the fast reply! I'll be sure to check out that site and thank you for you're information. I'm so excited!
Oh and if anyone has worked at Rockin' Rollar Coaster, I'd love to hear you're stories.

Thanks again

Nicole

I have a few questions, excuse me if some have already been answered:

1. Since I'm student in Canada, I was wondering if this is also open to international or other than Amercian citizens. If so, will we be treated differently as in given other jobs and such?

2. This is a little off topic but if any Canadian GTA area students are reading this, does anyone know of any good colleges that Disney hires from in Canada herself?

Thank you all so much and please, continue talking! I want to know as much as I can about this topic!

Hi Nicole!
During my research of the CP I stumbled across this forum. It is labeled International Program and has people from all over that are just as excited as Americans in being able to participate. Hope it helps!

Cool site. A lot to read, I'm afraid. But I'm still so excited even though its such a long way away.
Has anyone worked at the Canadian pavillion in EPCOT or any other countries?

Does custodial count? I'm not international though.

Hi, I'm Ashleigh, and I feel like I know a lot of you already, as I've spent all day in my chair reading this thread. I feel as if I'm in a whirlwind - I made the decision to apply to the program on Thursday, got my presentation completed and application in on Friday, found this forum and signed up today, and have my interview tomorrow. In case it doesn't come across, I'm pretty anxious!

My main concern is that I have diabetes, and I'm afraid after holding other summer jobs which really put my blood sugar control to the test that my doctor may not want me being directly in the sun all day. I'm hoping I haven't made a mistake in applying - is needing to work indoors or in the shade a reasonable accommodation or am I expecting too much? Should I bring it up in the interview or wait to see if I'm accepted?

I would bring it up, but it shouldn't be a problem. On my last CP I had a roomie that had to work indoors because of a medical condition. Good luck!

I would DEFINITELY bring it up in the interview, that way they know what roles you can and cannot be put in, I think its a more than reasonable request, but once they put you into a role it will be harder to accomodate you. Good luck with the interview!!

You can bring it up but it won't hurt you - there are medical forms to fill out and send in for specific problems and they have to adhere to those - my daughter had a corneal transplant and has trouble with bright lights (think fire, fireworks, that sort of thing) and we filled out the forms with her doctor and she was placed appropriately.

Thanks for the advice, yall. I finished the interview about ten minutes ago and I didn't have the opportunity to ask about health and placements. In general, the interview didn't go as well as I had anticipated.

I can't see them having a problem, after I was accepted on the international college program i was involved in quite a serious car crash, and have now got a bad back which makes lifting and bending a big no no, and the recruitment team have been great in insuring that i can still go this sunday coming up, only thing is i won't know what role i def doing until i get there. (i'm supposed to be doing QSR)

I wish that were the case. I am usually nowhere near so pessimistic about things, but something occurred during the interview that threw me off for the final two questions. I ended up sounding completely dumb; I couldn't quite recover from the thing that was said. My goal is to focus on getting my information in and hoping that the rest of me speaks for itself!
