First of all: WOOOO-HOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
I am SO excited! Around the beginning of this year, I started seeing some talk on Facebook about the Summer DCP alumni program at Disneyland. I didn’t think much about it because I thought you had to be a DLR alumni to apply. But after I talked to some people, I found out that ANY DCP alumni could apply!
So, I applied on January 28th. The applications link closed in 24 hours because so many people applied!
I had no problems with the web-based interview (I have serious concerns for HOW people could possible fail it…) and scheduled my phone interview for February 11th.
As I was preparing for my PI interview, I saw on the Disney Alumni Association fb page that they were debuting a WDW Summer Alumni CP program!!! I immediately applied for that when it opened on February 9th! It was only open for applications 2 days!
My DLR interview went pretty well. I said some really good answers, but I could tell my interviewer wasn’t really feeling me. She asked me really different questions from the regular CP interview so I wasn’t 100% prepared. That interview was 17 minutes long. (And as of March 1st, my app still “In Progress”.)
My WDW interview was on the 19th, the day after my 23rd birthday.
IT WAS AMAZING! Best interview of my LIFE! The lady was so nice and I made a lot of good jokes! I talked a lot about how great my experience was at Animal Kingdom and at the end, she asked me if I had a preference for any park or resort and I said I would prefer DAK again. I would LOVE to do merchandise at Discovery Island again! My friends are still there and I just love the location and hours! That interview was only 16 minutes. It went by so fast.
Last, but not least – I applied for the Fall 2015 CP program too! (I know, I’m a glutton for Disney interviews!!!)
I applied February 17th and interviewed on the 23rd. This interview I totally bombed. OMG, it was painful. 30 minutes long (the longest of the three interviews) and I still have no idea what we talked about because she was asking me really hard questions. After each interview, I’m normally able to regurgitate all the questions that we talked about. I have no clue on this one. (As of March 1st, it’s still “In Progress”)
But, the NEXT DAY on Feb 24th, I received this email!!! Because I was at work, I wasn’t able to log into the Dashboard to see which CP program this was for. haha I had to wait until I got home.
It was the one I was hoping for! Summer 2015 DCP Alumni Program at WDW!!!!
