Look forward to maybe meeting your daughter in person when we're all down there!
When do you start again Disneygirl3919?

Thanks. I do wish I could be working in my old role, but this will be fun.

I found out at the audition that I was offered a role. Then I received my acceptance packet 12 days after the audition. I hear that character performers in the College Program start out by doing meet and greets in the 4 parks.

When you are accepted to the CP and you go to log on, there is several arrival dates to choose from.

I know it's totally up to the school, but I was just wondering how most of you handled financial aid and insurance. It's all just so confusing to me. I guess in order to keep my loans and insurance, I need to be declared as full time, which means I have to have 12 credits. And to get credit for doing the program, I need to have a signature from my supervisor. And I'd still need to take 2 or 3 classes. Has anyone else had to go through this?
Thanks!!!

I'm curious if anyone has used the weight rooms at Vista Way or Chatham. There's a picture on the website, but does anyone know how large/clean/busy they are? And are there cardio machines, or just weight lifting equipment?

I've been inside the one at Chatham. I think there is both there. I will know for sure in 2 weeks, since I will be using it this time.

Just reading this thread gets me so excited about the high possiblity of being a part of the Disney magic! I've already scouted out apartments in case I get offered a FT job!

Sorry, I'm really random, but sometimes you get so excited you just can't hold it in!
good luck to you. to tell you the truth though, they have everyone send in all the original signed pages of their application, so that doesn't mean anything. it takes about 2 weeks, sometimes longer. but for the most part its two weeks.

hope this helps. I really hope you get in! Good Luck!

I believe so. They do the sewing at MK, MGM, and I am pretty sure DTD.

Getting credit, financial aid, and insurance are usually up uour school. I was able to take as many credits as I wanted (1 credit up to 20 credits) through my school when I went down this past Fall. They were all counted as elective classes and they were intern credits as well. All I had to do was take one class through Disney, go to work, write a 10 page paper when I was finished with the program, and interview 2 full-time employees.
It just totally depends on your school. I was very lucky to be able to take as many credits as I wanted and not have to do a lot of work. The credits were based more on the experience.
