Well that is good to hear about the sales tax and wage increase. My first choice of work would be Vacation Planner.....my second would be food service so I would be elegible for that little bit more. Anyone know what sort of requirements they look for in a vacation planner. I have read plenty of WDW guides and I'm well aware of the different types of tickets, resorts and options a guest could have, I'm also bilingual so I hope that would be helpful. And would that job be in the call center taking calls and making reservations?

Hi! I'm also in the same boat. I had my interview earlier this month and was told to plan to come down to FL in Jan. I'm waiting to audition. Did you sign up for spring advantage or regular. How did the audition go?

Thumbs up

Hi DisneySam,
Welcome to DISboards, and congratulations on being accepted! There are several people who are starting this January. If you read "The Official Spring 2007 CP" thread and browse around other ones, I'm sure you'll find many people who are starting when you are. Also (I'm not sure what thread it's on), but I know there are some blogrings (?) and MySpace groups of people who are starting in Spring 2007.

Hope everything with your audition went well, and best wishes to you!

Congrats on getting accepted! What roles did you want to get? I was just poking around on this thread, and saw your post and someone else who got placed in custodial...is there a possibility then that you will get put somewhere that you didn't necessarily choose on your application? Because I think I'd be pretty disappointed if I got put somewhere I didn't want to.

Well anyway, I have my advising meeting this afternoon for next semester, and I think I'm going to ask more about possibly doing the CP next fall!

I was a Vacation Planner! I think they just look for responsible people (since you will be handling a lot of money). That seemed to be the #1 requirement. I had already done another cp before I applied for that role, so I think that helped me. It would be good to tell them if you have ever handled large amounts of cash and that you're aware of the different ticket types? Also, if you have any sort of sales experience, that might be helpful. Being biligual will certainly help you get any role you want. You will be working in the ticket booths in the front of the parks.

I have not taken that particular class but I can give you some info..
The classes are held at the housing complexes- either Vista or Chatham. There are like 4 (?) classrooms at each location. I do not remember any penalization for dropping the class.. but I also took it before they cost anything..so maybe someone who has taken classes more recently can fill in the gaps here..

Just how large is large amounts of money? In my job I sometimes work as a cashier and my deposits can range from 200 to 1000 in a day, so I'm kind of used to that. And actually I would love to be in the ticket booths in front of the parks, I thought that was under "operations" so I had not considered it. *So glad I found this forum!

I was just reading about the "proper attire" for dressing up for traditions and classes on another site. Is it true that heels aren't allowed. I just bought 2 pairs of totally closed toe and back heels for when I have to dress up or to go out and I'm afraid I can't use them now. I'm short and wear heels all the time it helps so I don't drag my pants on the ground everywhere. If anyone has the answer help. I can still take them back I think.

Wait time

Its been seven days since my audition- should I expect an email? They did say it would take less than a week. How long did you wait until you heard back from the auditions- either way.

If I dont get anything today, should I write my recruiter?

Ahh!

Miss Spooky, you can wear heels to traditions, as long as they meet Disney look requirements. They don't even have to be closed heel -- slingbacks are allowed, too.

Oh yay! I have been mulling over it since I was scared I wouldn't be. So we can then wear them to class too right? Or is class a little more lax on the business wear look?

Kay I totally got it wrong. I was confused. There is no state income tax! It was a long day and I shouldn't be allowed to post after a certain point!

Are the lists of the regular cast member auditions around the country updated well on the website? I've been trying to figure out if there will be people other than CP at my audition. Just a thought. I've been reading about people's diff auditions one girl on myspace in the group is a dancer and she got a phone call that she got it. It seems like a lot of people are finding out rather quickly by phone call.
