Ok, I've got two pretty unimportant questions but they've been bugging me for awhile.

First... awhile ago when I was looking up information I saw something about a Disney Choir that the CM's could join in. Was I wrong? I'm thinking it could have been the DL program where I read that. I don't exactly remember.

Second... I heard that some of the CM that come from other countries to work in the World Showcase also do the CP and live in the same apartments. Is this right? Are there a lot of international people that do the CP? I think it would be very cool to be friends or live with people from other countries!

Ok, that's all for now. Thanks!!

I have another question. After your initial seven month working period at Disney, is it possible to get a job in the entertainment field there, say as a musician? The reason I'm asking is because I'm an experienced guitarist and I was wondering how the players in the old Tarzan Rocks show got their jobs doing that. That'd be so cool!

Disneyland may have a choir, but I know for a fact if you are on Fall Advantage you can be part of the Cast Choir for Epcot's Candlelight procession. Rehersals start late in the Summer, but before the Fall peeps arrive.

They are on their own program that is similar to the CP. It is a lot longer, though. They also work at Animal Kingdom.
Info on this program is here:

The musicians from Tarzan Rocks were part of a group called Equity. You have to audition for that as well. And yes, you would have to wait until after the CP (CPs can't be in Equity).

If I remember correctly (as having done Spring 2005) I believe you can start applying mid-Fall of 2007 (probably late Sept, early Oct).

Pleasure Island is a collection of clubs/bars located in Downtown Disney. The last time I was there, most of the clubs were 18+ and only one or two were 21+.

Actually, if I am correct, all are 21+ now.

Ok I was just wondering becuase I've never been to WDW yet, and so I'm trying to get myself aquainted with some of the stuff there, and so I was reading the unofficial guide to WDW book and they said they didn't think that Pleasure Island was going to last and would probably be closing soon..since that was published in 05 I wasnt sure if it still existed..Guess they were wrong!

Does anyone know, do you get the same discounts no matter where you work? Or if you work in a store, do you get extra discounts there??
Thanks

Nope. The Adventurer's Club and The Comedy Warehouse have no age limit, but you must have supervision if you are under 18.

Wow...I'm glad I went when I did...we were 18 and were able to get into every club except Mannequins. Not that it matters, anymore (since I'm well over 21)...LOL
