This is a blog dedicated to my adventures as a Disney cast member!
Cultural Rep: March 2011 - March 2012
Cultural Rep Hopeful 2013!
This post is being written from my bed in the Disneyland Hotel and guess what!? I’m thoroughly enjoying the fireworks display happening on the head board!
A big congrats to everyone that’s got a date, here’s hoping I hear something really soon!!
Ugh. Midterms still. My Door Tech 204 take-home test is destroying me. I’ve written everything I know about hinge history — and i still have 1200 words to go. Kill me noowwwwwww!!
the best thing that ever happened to me was the MU grumblr.
Sorry I haven’t written anything about it, but I spent a whopping 14 hours downtown, came home, passed out, and flew out Calgary the next morning, and am just home now, so I haven’t had a chance to discuss it whatsoever.
The presentation at the beginning was amazing, and filled with a lot of familiar faces (always weird to see someone pop up on a big screen whom you haven’t seen in a year and a half!!), the trivia was great (I won a Disney International Programs luggage tag - which came in handy for the next morning!), and poor Jill, who did all the interviews by her lonesome, was such a sweetheart.
I was scheduled a 2pm interview time (most of my fellow re-applicants were scheduled for 5), however interviews were running behind, so by the time I ended up having mine, it was about 330. It was really laid back, and Jill and I shared some laughs, so I thought it went well. The only thing that was of concern to me and I thought might hurt my chances are my tattoos (which I know they shouldn’t as I’ve worn the Canadian costume before, and have picked my tattoo locations so they wouldn’t be visible), and my nose ring, which wasn’t even in for the interview, and I would remove for my program, because it’s way too much work/pain to take it out and put it back in every day.
Anyways, the reason why I remembered to write something about the interview was because I got my answer from Kristen, and just like my first contract, I’ve been waitlisted, or in Disney terms, “opportunity listed”. I’m going to assume the reason for this is because I hadn’t served during my first contract, and was honest with her about, and told her that I had failed my assessment, but then went on to assign which was my favourite role, aside from training of course.
I told her I wanted to serve this contract, and was currently in a serving position so I could build some more experience with it, and when she asked me what was going to motivate me to actually serve this time around, I said it would be so I could save up the money to put myself through school as Disney helped me realize that I wanted to pursue something in hospitality.
So now that all that is all said and done, and I found out so early, I may have to take my old roomie up on her offer and become her roomie once again!
But I would like to say a GIANT CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!! to all the applications who were accepted right away!!!
And do those who were opportunity listed as well, don’t worry, there’s a reason why they refer to it as an ‘opportunity’ list. More likely than not you’ll find yourself down in the sunshine state sometime soon!
I filled out my online application yesterday! Just need to print off my role checklist, photocopy my visa 100 times, and I’m set to go for the interview!
It should be a good day! A few team BC alumni decided to get together after the interviews for dinner and perhaps some dancing! Then, if I can afford it, I’ll be jetting off to Calgary the next morning to see my old Disney roommate, and hopefully my bff as well!
PS if anyone is reading this who is applying, fill out EVERYTHING with black ink. :)
Is this normal? I can’t remember, it’s been so long! I’m getting antsy!! Which I know I shouldn’t because I don’t have to arrange any travel plans or anything, but still!!
Oh, and here’s a picture of me with some Storm Troopers. I miss Hollywood Studios!
