    Good luck- sending pixie dust your way! Hope you get in :-) Don't know how regular DCP applicants can wait that long! I *officially* heard back two days later.

    GOOD LUCK! You so deserve this! If you do not get into the DCP, something is seriously wrong. I mean, your middle name is basically Disney! But in all seriousness though, you deserve this and I honestly think you'll excel at it.

    YAY!! Am sure your interview went fantastic!!!

    I LOVED all your info from Haunted Mansion. You talked about the ballroom is one of my favorites as well! We lucked out on our last trip. The ride stopped right as we were in the middle of that scene. So for about 8 minutes we got to stop and take every detail in. It was so neat to see things I had never seen before!!!

    Jealous of your Disney Trip coming up!!!

    Real Life Update #3: DISNEY TOMORROW!
    October 4th, 2012

    Hello, everyone! I wanted to do a send-off before I go to Disney World TOMORROW! Wait a minute.... actually... TODAY!!!!! :banana:


    I feel like I haven't posted a lot of trip details... so here are a few to tide you over until I get back!

    I am going on this trip with my Mom! MOTHER DAUGHTER TRIP #4! Woohoo!

    We are staying at Caribbean Beach!

    The purpose of this trip is for me to go visit my friend Miranda who is currently on her DCP! She's doing Quick Service Food and Beverage at Rosie's in DHS. I haven't seen her since May and I am SO excited to be reunited!

    I also hope to run into my friend Alicia (Leasha_Loves_Disney) who is also on her college program!

    We are going to MNSSHP on October 5th! And I'm dressing up.... but I'm not telling you who! ;)

    FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL. Enough said. This is my first official experience with it. I am PUMPED.

    Every single table service meal is an ALL NEW RESTAURANT FOR ME. Either I haven't been there ever, I haven't been there since middle school, or I haven't been there for this specific meal. GUYS, I'M SO EXCITED.

    We leave tomorrow and 3 pm and get to stay until Monday! WOOHOO!

    Basically, that's the important stuff. We don't have a very solidified plan, so I am excited to see what happens! And I am SUPER excited to get a break from this beyond-stressful school year!

    I WILL BE LIVE TWEETING AND INSTAGRAMMING FROM WALT DISNEY WORLD. That's right, LIVE. Please follow me - PrincessJess508 is my name on both of them. Any instagram shoutouts would be greatly appreciated, too. :goodvibes I want to get the word out there!

    So I hope you'll be following along on my first FALL Disney trip in over 6 or 7 years. I AM SO EXCITED! TOMORROW IS THE DAY!!!!!!!


    Also, I'm sure you guys are all very curious to hear how the Phone interview went! I posted all about it in my tumblr, but I will copy and paste the entry over here so you can read it. If you would like to follow me on tumblr as well, it's the same username - PrincessJess508. I am planning on keeping track of my DCP progress there!

    Here are all my notes ready for my interview! I spent lots of time researching questions and thinking of the best possible answers. They were SO helpful!!


    I posted this tumblr entry within a few hours after my interview:

    So, I felt really good about it overall! There are some things I wish I would have remembered to say, some moments where I wish have felt more confident and more clearly stated my points... but overall I was satisfied and I hope I did a god job.

    Then.... I got pended. ONE DAY AFTER MY INTERVIEW. This is the post I submitted on tumblr last night.

    So fingers crossed that everything works out and there is something big in store for my DCP experience! I am excited to get my answer!

    Alright everyone... I need to get some sleep! Tomorrow/Today is Disney day! I WILL TALK TO YOU SOON! Have a wonderful rest of the week and Columbus Day weekend! princess:

    DISNEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!! :banana: :banana: :banana:

    Oh my goodness! This is so exciting! I remember going through this with my friend Jenelle. Oddly enough, I happened to be with her when she received her email and then when she was hired full time! Too precious :) Not gonna lie, I have already pretty much made up my mind that I'm doing the College Program too right after I graduate! Anyways, can't wait to hear about it and I know you're gonna get it!

    I'm certain the CP interviewer was blown away by your Disney knowledge and preparedness! Yay for the trip. So looking forward to live tweets and instagram! I need it, especially since our October DL trip got put on the back burner because of my son's school and swim team schedule. Hope you and your mom have a blast! Thanks for sharing.
