The uniforms have this special place near the left breast that has two holes for the badges to go through--kind of like a small, rectangular patch. But with your own clothes, yeah, they make big holes.

at Company D you can buy a kit that'll convert the name tag from a pin on to a magnet.

Cool. I make them when they come in for the university so maybe I can just bring some to convert it myself. It can't hurt and if not then I know where my first stop is going to be. I would hate to have holes in some of my good tops!

I have a couple of quick questions (If they have already been asked and answered I'm sorry but I don't have the time to look through 61 pages).

First the role that I recieved is operations. Online it says that most people have to wear a pair of solid color shoes. They also recommend that you don't buy them till you get there. I was thinking of buying a pair of black or white shoes before I left. How many people brought shoes with them?

Also I am checking in on January 22. My question is on the 23 will that day be a day that I attend Traditions or could that be a free day with just like a meeting in the morning. The only reason I'm asking is because my parents are helping me move in and they might leave on the 24th if they can still have dinner and take me out on the 23. Thanks

Traditions doesnt take up the whole day. Its only 4-5 hrs. You should have plenty of time to visit with your parents afterwards.

First, you don't know what kind/color shoes you will need. So I would wait until you arrive and find out your area. And second, Traditions happens on the third day. The 2nd day after check-in is the day you find out your location.

Will someone tell me when the last day was that you could apply for the CP for January. Was it back in November? Just wondering as one of my classmates applied in November but hasn't heard anything. I don't know the process, but would they have had to schedule an interview themselves? Just checking as I know you all would be the first to know

Thanks!

K another question from me as I kill time from studying for my finals this week and I was browsing on ebay. I know that we get to shop at the company D store and what not for all the discounted stuff. Are the things where just from WDW or would I be able to find DLR merchandise and some of the other resorts? I have a few pins and things I was thinking about ordering before I get down there but if I can get em cheaper there I'll wait. Thanks! 1 month nad a week to go!!

Okay, this is going to sound crazy, but I just applied for the college program for the spring. I have my interview tomorrow.

I was surprised they're still interviewing for the spring 07 program, but I recently decided that I want to switch my major, and quite possibly switch schools, and taking a semester off while I apply to new programs seems like a good idea.

So I guess question one is whether this is crazy of me. I mean, if I'm accepted I'd be going down there...the fifth of January or so? Less than a month!

Also I've seen people ask, but does this really help a lot in getting a Professional Internship? (Have any alumni done Imagineering internships? That's really where I want to go...)

Last question - being a character attendant isn't like being a character actor, right? Unless I'm mistaken, they're people who are in charge of an area and help guests find out showtimes and where things are and all, right? The role sheet says they have a separate interview process. What is that like?
