Being a character attendant is a fun role. This is I am currently doing on the CP. You assist the characters, answer questions for guests, take pictures for them if needed, stuff like that. And there is no seperate interview process.

Because you'll get your acceptance probably within a few weeks of your start date, you won't have too much time to be anxious/nervous/whatever. But you will have just enough time to prepare yourself and get ready to have a great time. Good luck.

• Frequently Asked Question: Why do we call giraffes "giraffes?" Answer: Because when they came to Earth they asked us to.

• Rarely Asked Question: How fast can giraffes run? The giraffes have tried to phase out running from their lives but if they had to, they could still run much faster than you. Let's say, for the sake of argument, that they can run 780 mph."

hello!

Hey there. Do the one bedroom apartments have the same layout minus one bedroom as the others at Chatham or are they smaller kitchen and living room? It may have been asked before but what do they allow you to use to hang posters and stuff? Tacks. Staples?

Thanks! Getting excited Just 18 more days until I leave for Florida!!!

well I have a ton of tacks that i can't use here so i guess i can get some use out of them there. i would think they wouldn't want all those holes in the walls but it's there prob i guess. I just had my walls done and I have been told not to have them all "holed up" as I was told!

Question

I'm new to this forum and was wondering, if anyone is doing the spring program? I'm leaving on January 6th....I'm real nervous about check in. Is it really hectic, or am I just worrying too much?

Also - I'm flying from Pittsburgh. Any suggestions as to what I should make sure to pack (eh...like toilet paper?) or something essential I may forget? (*insert funny stories here* haha)

I'm leaving from Pittsburgh too! I arrive on the 15th and I'm semi-frantic about the packing thing too. But I always worry too much.

Hey everyone,

I dont know if these questions have been answered yet, and if they have, feel free to direct me to them. thanks.

In this college program, can you be a princess or is that for a more experienced applicant (ie: someone who has been through the program once before)? If you can be a princess, and you go for an audition, what sort of thing do you do. Do you come prepared with a monologue or do they give you a cold reading to do or what? Also, in order to be a princess, do you need to be a theatre major? Thanks so much. Any details you could provide would be wonderful!

I figure what a good place to ask one of the questions I don't recall seeing answered anywhere...

How many tv channels are there? Not that I'm planning on watching a ton of tv but I may take along my tivo or something and watch in my few moments of downtime. I love project runway but have a feeling they won't have bravto.

Can you be in community college and apply for the College Program or does it only work for 4 year colleges?

I have a few questions...
1) Are there closet in the bedrooms at Vista Way or Chatham? I've been looking at the pictures of the two apartments on Disney's website, but I can't really tell.
2) Is there a place to put a desktop computer and a television? Anybody improvise?
3) Does anyone know if there are BP/Amoco gas stations in the general area? I know there are Hess stations on Disney property, but what other stations are nearby?
