    Hi All!

    So, for the first time in what will be 6 years I will be returning to Disney World!! This time is a little special.. I get to be a cast member!

    This Trip Report isn't going to be particularly regular as I'm not sure when I'll get the time whilst over there, but I plan to update you on my preparation for the trip, including the application process and then start talking about my working life!

    I applied for the program back in September, a few weeks later I was invited to a pre-screening interview which was held in groups of 5 and we where asked multiple questions about why we applied for the program and why we think we'd be successful at it.

    About two weeks later I got an email to say that I'd been invited to the final interview. I had to dress in business attire and take various documents, it was quite nerve wrecking but the Disney reps were really welcoming and made you feel quite relaxed. We got to watch various different videos (which are, by the way, absolutely hilarious) The lady who introduced us to the program, Valerie, had clearly drank too much coffee the morning of filming. Either that or she was some sort of addict.
    (If you want to view them go here Disney eExperience click on 'menu' and then select 'chapter view' and check out the videos )

    After the interview we had a 3 week wait to find out the results of our interview! I found out that I had a position in Attractions from the 24th of May to the 19th of August

    Now, here's my to-do list:


    • CRB check- ?
    • Book flights- ?
    • Renew passport?
    • Visa interview?
    • Buy health insurance?

    I'll keep you updated with how my planning goes :)

    It's so hard!! I'd love haunted mansion or tower of terror as the CM's get to have so much fun scaring everyone I'd also love midway mania or space ranger spin (for obvious reasons)

    We can state a preference but it's in no way guaranteed

    If you want to do HM or ToT then you need to start practicing your serious face. No smiling.
