Hey howdy hey! I'm Andrewjason, and I applied for the Disney ICP on August 1st 2012! and was accepted for June 3rd Operations!! xD Yupp!!! that means I'm a Cast Member now!! well... sort of... :p This blog is where I'll be telling y'all about my entire COllege Program experience from start to finish!!! Have a magical day everybody!!! :D
DAY 2: One more dawn… one more day…. one day more!
I Arrived at the airport today! because I’m staying at the Hilton so I don’t have to wake up early tomorrow morning. So I explored the airport tonight (because I kinda like airports) and got dinner there. And tomorrow morning I’m up bright and early to cathc my flight to Orlando! I can’t wait!! I’ve been waiting for this for so long and now that it’s finally here, it almost doesn’t seem real! Bring on tomorrow’s transatlanticism!! :D
Day 18) A magic moment you wish you could a part of
Oh my gosh you guys have no idea how badly I want to make these- for anyone :D Well there’s the usual ones like giving free stuff to people but then there’s like the really deep ones you read about that make the kids so happy that the parents start crying and you can really tell why it’s called a “magical moment”. One of those. I want to be a part of something that makes someone happy…. :)
oh my gosh, if you follow me and have made a magical moment, prettyyyy please share it! :D:D:D
I have DOZENS of these!!! And most of them are secrets ;)
One of my not-so-secret ones though….Would be Cinderella’s wishing well at night… maybe after the park’s closed, it’s so romantic and quite and the lights on the castle project such a warm, radiant, almost transcendental atmosphere… it’s just perfect… and not to mention where I’m going to get down on one knee and propose… maybe… one day…. :p
I’ll let you know when I find out where I’m working.. ahar ahar ahaa *ahem*
The past few years I’ve been going into guest relations at the end of the day (when it’s emptiest that is) and asking for advice on applying to the College Program and honestly it’s where I’ve spoken to not only the best cast members but some of the best, nicest people on this earth.
Don’t expect to be accepted first time round. The program accepts a lot of people who don’t deserve to be on it and rejects a lot of people who do. That’s just how it is. BUT if you endeavor hard enough and long enough you will get in eventually… you know… if you wish upon a star and all that ;)
Hey howdy hey guys! SO with you’re help I finished coming up with a Disney College Program 30 day challenge so here it is, since TODAY MARKS 30 DAYS!!!
Day 1) Thing you’re looking forward to the most about working for Disney?
I’m probably most looking forward to making magical moments for the kids, well to be honest, not just the kids but everyone :D When I was a small boy I remember having my whole life made by “magical” gestures from Cast Members, and it’s all I can hope for to be able to return that gesture to the next generation of guests!
Anyone who’s been/going have any tips for those first three days? xD
First you go through the whole process (im not even sure how much i can tell you) it pretty much takes all day. At one point you will be fingerprinted to see if you have a police report. Then you meet your roommates. And you have the option of taking a class. I suggest taking one because they will give you an extra day off. If you take one you get two days off instead of one. They do have a meet and greet party by the pool. Thats pretty much all i remember about the first few days.
Sounds fun! Thanks for the tips! I can’t wait! :D:D:D
