I know it would be tough, but you could always go off-site. You don't have to stay in their designated apartments. I believe that is possible. Don't let it discourage you from the program!

Thanks! I should do more research on it because I wasn't even sure you could stay offsite. I really appreciate it though and I'll definitely look into it more. I really want to do the program and my boyfriend wants to try to get a job in security down there if I do. So, we'll see! Hopefully it works out!

as long as you and your overnight visitor are from the same complex, they won't kick you out.

The problem is when you check in people not from your complex. They keep a list and will find out where they went if they don't see them leave. They don't do bed checks.

I know that I don't mind it! If it means it cuts down on huge blow outs and people that aren't supposed to be around. It is a bummer though if have friends that are in a diff complex. I suppose though there isn't going to be much down time...

Exclamation What is the process for requesting time off?

I already asked this question on "The Official Spring 2007 CP" thread, but I'm hoping to get some help on this one too.

How exactly do you go about requesting time off? Has anyone asked for time off on their CP before? I'm doing the Spring 2007 CP, but have a religious conference that I previously committed to. I need to be able to go for at least one day of the conference in February.

I'd figure I'll ask for Feb. 9th off, because then I would have been on the CP for 30 solid days by then. I think they really can't say no since it is for religious purposes.

Thanks.

Hi all, I've been lurking on this board for a couple of weeks now. I'm in total shock , I just got an acceptance packet for Spring '07, and I was sure I completely bombed the interview Any way I have a few questions before I hear back from my faculty contact and officially accept.

1.) I know you can't leave at all but do they make exceptions for family emergencies, like allowing you to leave for a few days and then come back? I'm not expecting anything to happen, but I do have some elderly grandparents.

2.) This might be kind of a dumb question, but: How do you cash your paychecks? Can you do direct deposit?

3.) I was accepted for Housekeeping. My # 1 choice. But since applying I've seen a few people on this board say that housekeeping( hey wait isn't it supposerd to be "Mousekeeping" ?) is bad. What makes it bad, and/or is it only bad if cleaning isn't your thing?

Thanks
Julianna (or Jules)

I was originally accepted into housekeeping, but called and got switched into merchandise after talking to someone who had done it the year before. I'm sure if you like cleaning it won't be so bad, but she had problems with all the constant bending over to clean toilets and make beds and such, and I guess all the chemicals were really bad, and hurt her eyes and dried out her skin. You have to do a lot of rooms, and I wasn't looking forward to having to clean the gross messes some people leave behind, and the chemicals tend to give me headaches.

I have another question for people who have already gone about drinking. I'm under 21 and in no way would I risk doing anything that would get me thrown out. But what if my roommates sneak in alcohol? Would I get in trouble just for being there even if I didn't drink? Because I don't want to be a jerk and report them and make them hate me, but I also don't want to be seriously penalized for their mistakes.

Yes, you can get in big trouble. Disney and the CP does not mess around with underage drinking. So if you have a roomate who is sneaking alcohol, I would ask them to get rid of it.

Well, if you turn them in, then they'll only be around to hate you for twenty-four hours, because they'll be terminated.

You do have a good question, though. Obviously the only way for someone to find out if there is alcohol in the room is if someone tells. But, of course, some people may have been told that there would be alcohol, and someone else might tell authorities about the alcohol--word spreads quickly.

If you know they're only going to be drinking on one night, and after that they'll destroy the evidence, then you could just leave for the night and if anything were to happen, then you were gone and wouldn't get in trouble. If they do this habitually, though, you will probably want to report it, because it's really not worth the chance of getting terminated.

1) If something comes up, talk to your scheduler. If it's a family emergency, they'll do their best to be accomodating. Hopefully some of your co-workers would be able to take your shift.

2) Yeah, you can do direct deposit. I think that's definitely the easiest thing to do. You can set it up on the Cast Portal website during your first week of the program.

3) One thing about housekeeping is the lack of guest interaction. You interact with guests' rooms, not the guests. Also, the housekeeping employees are generally older folks (who may be of another nationality), which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but if you want to hang out with your college-aged mates during breaks at work, then you could be out of luck.

As soon as you get to work (or thereabouts), ask your trainer who your scheduler is and talk to your scheduler about having that time off. They do schedules about two weeks in advance, so as long as it's before then, you should be able to get the time off, provided it's not more than a few days or so.

You can use the cast entrances, though. Just make sure your ID is never scanned (eg front entrance admission, using your ID for a cast discount). That's bad. When you use the cast entrance, the security guards will just look to see if your ID and photo ID match and then you're good to go.

I would not do that. If you are going to not go to work one day, don't go into the parks- period. If you get caught, you can get fired.
