I hope someone can answer a few questions for me regarding resort discounts. My niece just started the program a few days ago and I was wondering if she would be able to get a room for us at a discount. We would probably be going the end of June for a few days. Do they offer discounts at all the resorts, or only certain ones? Are the discounts available to all of her family members or only immediate family. Thanks for any help you can provide

Will she still be working there in June? If so, then she can probably get you a discount. My DD is currently working there and got us a room for March. She must come to the resort within 10 days of your arrival and verify her CM status.

When she goes to the CM reservation page, it will show her the resorts that are available for the dates you have in mind. Not all resorts may be available. We wanted to get a room at ASMo, where DD works, but settled for ASMu because there were no rooms at ASMo.

Good luck!

I said no the QSF&B question. My first choice is operations, but I also applied for merchandise, hospitality and full service food and beverage. Now I play the waiting game, I'm not gonna be able to concentrate.
I'm planning/hoping to do the CP next spring or fall 2007. Some questions (in no particular order):
1. What was your normal schedule there like?
2. binigrl417 mentions the "normal questions" that they ask during interviews. What questions were you asked? How did you answer? Would you change your answer now that you have worked at Disney?
3. I'm planning on doing the Disney Half or Full Marathon Jan 2007. Will I be able to do the with doing the program? How do arrival dates work?
4. What are essential things to bring? What didn't you need to bring?
5. Are there internet connections in the apts?
6. Is there carpeting or tile in the apts?
7. Can you work for the Disney Cruise Line in the College Program?
8. How are the classes? Which are the best? Are they worth taking?

Thanks

Hey lilouisianagal. Welcome to the boards. Let's see if I can answer your questions.

1. My schedule was pretty much the same throughout the whole CP. I worked in merchandise in Fantasyland at the MK. I always closed there. So I usually got to work about 5 in the evening. I would usually work the registers, although sometimes I would stock. Depending on the fireworks, we would close the stores either an hour early or at closing. Then we would re-stock the stores and clean up. I would always come into the MK before work to play.

2. I got the usual answers like "Why do you want to do the CP?" and the space mountain question and others. I think I would still answer the same way, even after doing the CP.

3. You could do the marathon while on the CP. Don't know when they are, but if they are during the CP, just make sure that you request those days off for the marathon.

4. Make sure you bring money for the first few weeks because you don't get paid for about 3 weeks after you start. I brought about $300 and that was enough. Of course you need personal items like toothbrush/toothpaste, alarm clock, clothes for both warm/cold weather. Don't worry about work shoes until you arrive. There are a LOT of different styles/color shoes that you could wear. They will tell you what they want. There is a Walmart nearby that you can get just about anything there.

5. I brought a router down for my apartment. Everyone was able to get internet connection from it.

6. There is both. Most is carpet, but there is tile in the bathrooms and kitchen.

7. No unfortunately. The DCL is something totally different.

8. I liked my class. I took Hospitality Management and it was good.

I hope that these helped. If you have any more questions, feel free to email me at joanna71985@hotmail.com and AIM at joanna71985.

It's like something along the lines of "there's a kid who wants to ride Space Mountain and he's too short. What do you do?".

So, people who have interviewed already- what questions did you get? I'm just curious to hear the questions and how you responded.

* You could tell the kid about another good ride that they could go on.
* You could tell the kid that next time he would be able to ride.

I did the CP last spring. My role was QSR F&B in the Magic Kingdom, Stands West. I mostly worked in Adventureland at Aloha Isle and Sunshine Tree Terrace. I lived in Chatham. I am now a campus rep for IU and would love to go back down and work there again.

I got deployed to Adventureland several times during my CP. I found that the Adventureland merchandise costume was one of my favorites. It was just like wearing PJs at work (of course, the worst one HAD to be the Liberty Square dress. So heavy, and I almost killed myself going up/down stairs! ).

Puppeteering?

I'm hoping for Disney 2007, also! My question is- does anyone know anything about puppeteering? I looked on the website, but the info. is pretty vague. I'd love any info. you have! Thanks!

when I did the auditions for entertainment, they asked people to stay to do a puppeteering exercise to gauge your aptitude for for. I didn't get it though.

Hey everyone! Here's a small question! I'm hoping to take the CP Fall of next year (was accepted for last fall but didn't go), and I'm aiming to work in Operations.

My question is: Are CP people able to do the speaking roles on the Great Movie Ride and Kilimanjaro Safaris? Ideally I'd love to do that, but I'm not sure if anyone gets placed there.

Thanks for the info!
