    So it sounds like you didn't get your first choice. That's why I put operations first and merchandise second. I'm a Disney Store CM... where do you THINK they will put me! I did ask for a pin location if possible though, so that's a plus. I'm glad to hear you had a bunch of fun roommates. I plan to do exactly was you did-- learn about business from the program. I have learned so much from my store alone, I can't even begin to ponder the parks! Where do you go to school WDWFan75 and what do you plan to major in/do? Is it Disney related?

    Well, I started out as a business major, but by the time I came back from the College Program (actually, even before I left), I knew I had to get out of that. I'm now majoring in Professional Development, which sounds fancy, but really means "whatever I feel like taking." So I'm diversifying, in business buzzword terms. I have some wonderful Disney people on my side -- managers, of course -- when I finish school and want to go into management (or whatever opportunity arises . I went to a small school in Texas (now I'm in their distance program instead of on campus) -- so small, in fact, that I had to drive 90 minutes to get to the interview, which I did at Baylor University in Waco.

Thanks so much!!
    I just got my letter yesterday. I wanted to let you know that I was accepted in the role of Operations. This suprised me that I wasn't placed in merchandise as most Disney Store Cast Memebers are. I will won't get any other details until I get there. I haven't picked my specific dates, but I will be there this fall, Aug-early Jan. I hope to meet a lot of MiceChatters. Thank you to all of the alumni for your support and advice. You are all amazing!!

    Also, if anyone is currently going through the application process for this upcoming fall, please let me know! I'd love to meet you and possibly house with you. Just PM me.

    UPDATE: I will be there Aug 17th - Jan 3rd.

    Hi all,

    I'm going on the CP as well -- I got the role of Vacation Planner. And yes, believe it or not I actually wanted that role. I like helping people plan vacations and doing everything possible to have them enjoy themselves. I'm leaving the last days of May to Disney for the Fall Advantage session. I'm from Texas by the way. Anyone else here going on the Fall Advantage for '05?

    Congratulations to all those who will be CP's!

    It'll be great to have some new talent here in Orlando, and look forward to meeting you all at some point. If you're not used to two seasons (one hot, and the other hotter), brace for impact now!

    But, there's never a lack of things to do here!

    And all of you who are coming down had better come and see me -- I got the AI for Disney Learning Centers, so I'll be in one of those locations starting June 15th. I have also have two friends who'll be down doing management internships, one in rooms and related at Coronado Springs, and another in merchandise at Downtown Disney.

    I found out earlier this week, but I've been busy with finals and getting ready for graduation tonight.

    (They're actually giving me a degree and letting me leave! Suckers.)
