    Hey everyone. It looks like now is a good time to start up a new thread. I can't believe how fast the other one went (it almost tripled the first one). This is a good place to ask questions, share concerns, and talk about your experiences.

    A little bit about myself: I've done the CP 4 times. They are Spring 2005 (Fantasyland merchandise), Fall Advantage 2006 (character attendant), Summer 2007 (Epcot WS custodial), and Summer 2008 (QSFB-Casey's Corner/character attendant). I've been a Campus Rep for 3 seasons, and I will be applying for Fall 2009.

    Let the new thread begin!:banana:

    Not all do. But some managers do (especially in food roles).

    I'm still in the "it's all so surreal" mode. I check in 3 weeks from today for Spring Merchandise. I'm the 3rd member of my family to do a merch CP, following in my 2 daughters' footsteps, which makes it even WEIRDER! :lmao:

    Thank you, Joanna, for all you do for CP hopefuls. You have been a real help to me making the decision to apply and answering all the silly little questions that haunt me late at night.

    I wonder who the oldest CPer ever was??? :rolleyes1

    I couldn't say, but I know we had a couple Canadian Cultural Cast members working in Food and Bev that were mid 40s!

    I talked to a woman at Epcot doing research who told me she was 57 when she did her CP....she then went full time.

    You're welcome. It's no problem at all (and is why I became a campus rep). :)

    Hey guys, just thought I'd say thanks to everyone who gave me their congratulations on the previous thread :goodvibes

    I'm gonna be doing QSFB which I understand you've done before, Joanna?

    I've read the role description etc, but what do you ACTUALLY do?

    Thanks! :thumbsup2

    Question: I have a roommate in mind for Fall09 already and I was wondering- when you get offered a role, can you accept it and then pick an arrival date (so we can make sure we both have the same date) later? And, if you use roommate notification, does it matter if your dates are the same?

    You must be in college at the time you apply and they assume you'll complete that semester. So yes, if you are enrolled at the community college in the spring, you would be able to apply for the fall program!

    If you just graduated high school in May 08 then you may be qualified for the career start program! The CS is nearly identical to the CP, you just have fewer role options. Look into to that one if you're interested as well!

    Once you receive your purple folder you will have two weeks to accept your offer - you MUST select your arrival date in order to accept. In order to be roommates you must have the same arrival (and they prefer the same departure) date. If you and your preferred roommate apply on the same day, then there's a good chance you'll receive the purple folders around the same time too!
