I think I'm gonna go ahead and go for it. People have been posting their pics on myspace to see if they look like characters but I don't know about doing that. If I go it's on Nov 8th in San Francisco. It's about a 3 hour drive. I'm starting to freak about that too. Will I have to wait to till after that to be accepted?

I believe you do. I had to wait a bit after mine to find out. But that was because I didn't get character performer. If you get character performer, you find out much sooner.

Does anyone know of any blogs or journals from someone who has done the CP? I would be really interested to see what people's daily life is like. Thanks.

Joanna i have a question for you. i have read somewhere here(i forget where exactly it was) that you said you were HM. i have been trying all day to figure out what HM stands for. i even got my parents involved seeing if they can figure it out. we have not been able to come up with a solution. so if you wouldn't mind, could you enlighten me? hahaha. thanks.

MissSpooky, how did the interview go?

WeirdPaintBallr, I know there are some out there-- I read a ton before I did my CP but I have no idea of their addresses anymore. Try livejournal or myspace?

It went great, better than I expected. Thanks! It was fun and he told he he usually didn't do this but he invited me to audition character and said that regardless of getting a character or not I should plan on coming to FL in January! I just have to get all my stuff mailing in but I have no address to send it to. I think we chit chatted too much and he forgot to give it to me. Now I have a ton of stuff to take care of to go!

Hi everyone... I would love to do the CP because I would love to go on to do a PI and I know the CP would help me get have a better chance. My uestion is this I am in college, however I am also a single mom, I had my kids first and then decided to go back to school. Would it be possible for me to do the CP since I have kids. I obviously could not live in the apts Disney provides, but I could rent one if that was allowed. Does Disney have any kind of childcare for thier employees children? I know that by working at Disney I would not be working hours that most childcares are open. Like I said I would love o do this if possible, but would like to figure these things out before thinking any more about it. Thanks!

Hi SValencia1! I know a woman who did the program with kids, but they were grown up. I can have her send you an email on finding apartments close to Disney if you'd like. (Just send me your email address through a private message.) As far as childcare, I know there is one on site, but I have no idea of the hours.

i think i already know the answer but ill ask it anyway. what happens for magic hours? can you go to them even though you're not staying at a disney hotel even though you're an employee? im willing to bet the answer is no, but i may be surprised
