I've got a question about when Disney informs you about whether or not you've been accepted into the program. I already did my interview and they said that it typically takes about two weeks for them to get back to you. However, I plan on going to the entertainment audition in late october/early november. Will I still be informed that I've been accepted into the program, though my roll is still pending, or will they just wait till after I audition to tell me whether or not I've been accepted into the program, even if I don't get picked to be in entertainment?

You'll probably find out within 2 weeks after your audition because they won't assign you until your application process is complete. They used to tell the people who get cast in Entertainment at regional auditions the night of the sudition, but I don't know if they're doing that anymore. Anyhow, don't expect to hear anything until after you complete the application process which if you're going for entertainment, includes the audition. Hope it goes well for you!

You won't find out until after your audition. I didn't find out that I was accepted until late April, more then a month after my audition and several months after my interview (I interviewed in Jan, I believe).

I have a question about scheduling an interview after you attend the presentation. I plan on attending a presentation on October 12, and the school I have to go to is about an hr and 40 mins away from my school. Then the next day I have a mid-term at 11:15 at my school. So I'm going to need to go from my school to the other school to attend the presentation on the 12th and then go back that night take my test and go back to the other school for the interview. So I was wondering if its possible to have an interview either after 2 or 3 or early in the morning. If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

No it's not unfortunately. They only do the interviews during normal hours.

Thanks for responding, so what are the normal times for the interviews, the presentation on October 12th is at 5 p.m. so when would they have interview times for the next day. Also how long do the interviews usually take because if I could go to my interview and then leave straight from there to my school depending on the time I could probably make it back to school in time for my interview.

Well, the interviews are usually done over the phone. So it would be during hours like 9-6, or something like that. And it usually would be the day after the presentation.

Have they switched to only phone interviews now? The group interviews were so much fun! I do believe that the phone interviews are much more professional though...at least mine was.

question

Hello. I had a quick question about language proficiency tests for foreign languages. Are the tests to see if you are conversational or fluent>? I know a lot of French and Italian and a little German... so I was wondering how hard the tests were Thanks

I've never taken the exam myself, but my roommate on my last program did and she said it was conversational. It's really not that bad I guess, cause she wasn't even close to fluent, but she knew enough to get by and still got her badge.

I would assume that it would be enough to be able to speak conversationaly with people. And the interviews are done over the phone (except the ASL one, obviously).

No, but I'm wondering too because I'd like to try for a couple of them! I love languages...
