I'm off to work in Walt Disney World...follow my journey!
« on: June 02, 2013, 03:18:21 AM »
Hi everyone,

During Christmas 2011 I was a Cast Member at Disneyland Paris and had a thread on this forum explaining what the whole process was like. Now, 18 months later I'm going to be doing the same but at Walt Disney World!

I've never been to Florida or Disney World before, so I'm super-excited.

Last time I described the process of getting the job, and what it was like while I was there. This time I intend to do the exact same thing.

I'll start off by saying that this was a much more difficult job to get with thousands of applicants going for just 200 positions, this program is much longer - 9 weeks vs 2 weeks, more expensive and more combursome - visa etc, but it's Disney World which is even more exciting than Disneyland Paris.

If you want to know what it's like behind the scenes (Without revealing anything confidential of course ) and about the idea of working for Disney in general then hopefully you'll love my blog.

I have created a trip index here on my blog -  http://http://www.mepipe.com/2013/05/international-college-program-icp-working-at-walt-disney-world-blog.html.

The blog starts from November 2012 when I first got the first interview.

I applied back in August last year, so this is almost a year in the making.

I hope to be doing some vlogs as well when I'm out there.

I leave in just over 24 hours. I'm so excited and hopefully you'll follow my adventures with me and I might even see some of you this summer!
