I can't answer about Disney specific, but I can tell you that as an interviewer, I would much prefer hearing the answer, "I don't know myself, but I do know where I can find out" versus something made up just because the person felt that they HAD to supply an answer to the question.
i have a interveiw at the park coming really soon and was just wondering if anyone has any tips for me
Dont be shy!!
Ask questions.....lots of them. Write em down and memorize them if you have to. I had two interviews with Disney. One in '87 and one in '89.
I blew the 87 one because I just sat, listened, and nodded like a robot. I said next to nothing. GIANT mistake. The 89 one landed me the job because I interacted with the interviewer, asked questions, and showed a genuine interest in the park, its history, how things run. I'd say have at least four or five things to ask about once the interviewer gets done with what he/she is saying. Don't interupt, and most important of all - look your "Sunday best".
Bring a pad and something to write with and write down stuff that you know you'll remember anyway. Give the unmistakable impression that you are INTERESTED in working for them. Good luck!!!
I had an interview just last month, and posted quite a bit about my experience. I gave an overview of how the process went here. I also wrote some interview tips in my eHow article.
I'm not even an employee yet, so I'm not in that great of a position to give advice, but here's what I got out of the interview which may help: don't hold back. When I finished my interview, there wasn't a single time where I thought I could have tried harder to answer their questions or demonstrate my social skills. And as Space Mountain said, my interviewer seemed to enjoy answering my questions. I wasn't "trying" to ask questions though, I just asked them as they came up.
I could tell she enjoyed answering them from the way she would pause whatever we were discussing for a moment, and then spend a minute or two giving a very intricate answer, giving me time to continue the question if I was still confused. When I asked her how the bump system worked, I'm pretty sure we spent quite a while just talking about that.
Be yourself. Don't lie and make up things. Be outgoing and really friendly. They like those are fun. I went to the job fair when I got hired and we had group interviews. So if you do have a group interview make yourself standout.
