Waitlisted.

So as some of you may know, I have applied for the Disney College Program internship three times now. On April 14th, it was supposed to be the last possible day to hear back from the recruiters at Disney as to whether or not we had been accepted. In the past, I have waited until the last possible day and just been declined.

Of course, Disney has teased me once again, and put me on a waitlist. So I have neither been denied or accepted just yet. The email that they sent me was very generic. They basically said that I will continue to be in consideration for two more weeks, until April 28th. It also includes the line saying that they anticipate more openings to happen and so I don’t really know how to interpret that.

I am trying to be hopeful that more openings will come about, but I am also trying to be realistic and make plans for next semester. What are the chances that I get accepted now? I have zero idea and it is driving me mad. I really want to be in Orlando next semester instead of school, but Disney is dragging this out and making it difficult to plan. Hopefully, good vibes will be coming my way and I will be able to get in soon. I don’t want to be given hope from this email just to have it taken away again.

Disney Phone Interview

I have been trying to get accepted into the Disney College Program for an entire year now. After 2 failed attempts, I really hope that third time is the charm like they say. I feel good about it, but I am very nervous also.

It has been a dream of mine to work for Disney ever since I was little. I went on my first vacation to Disney World when I was 11 months old. Since that day, I have been hooked.

The internship is a good networking opportunity, it looks good on a resume, and I get to run around the parks FOR FREE. What college student wouldn’t want that?

The application process has a couple of different parts. I have now made it to the final part, the phone interview. I have scheduled it for this Thursday at 11 am. I am freaking out just a little bit. I only have about 20 minutes to make a great impression to the recruiter. I have been racking my brain thinking about my answers to potential questions. I hope that I am exactly what Disney is looking for.

But after the phone interview comes the worst part. The waiting. I could possibly have to wait all the way until April to find out if I am accepted or not. I honestly don’t know if my heart can handle that. I will have to find ways to keep my brain occupied, or I will have gray hair by the time April rolls around.

Wish me luck, and I will let you know how it goes! Faith, trust, and pixie dust.
