The Interview...

So just a few minutes ago I got of the phone with danielle my recruiter. She seemed very nice, I was really excited about the fact that I didn't have to answe the classic. Why do I want to work for disney? lol. But I totally made notes about why I wanted to work for disney.

So these are some of the questions I got asked. She also took the time to tell me that it normal to hear silence or typing in the background which I didn't know last time so it made me so much more relaxed and by the end it made me feel like I was having a conversation and not an interview.

-What my choice roles were.
-what was my favorite role.
-If I minded working outside,
-Why did a want to do the C.P.
-What I thought the role of a concierage was. (And I was honest and I really didn't know)
-Why I was intrested in Vacation planner.
-If i had experience with computers and cash handling.
-My past job good and bad things.
-If I've ever had a roommate how'd i handle it.
-disney look

And, just for the record the question I decided to ask was what are the possibilties of extending and she told be about possibly become full time, or part time, seasonl, and that there are interships available. In the past I've heard you can stay on a CP up to one year. But, she seemed to think that wasn't true unless you weren't advantage, Also said there's the option of summer alumni and stuff. And, everything depends on recruiting at the time. She also was like you never know maybe youll end up transfer schools down here. lol. Cause I was saying about how I had or or two semester left depend on how I did my class schedule like after this semester.

So anyways she said I'd be hearing back from us real soon after I asked the question but before that she said 4-6 weeks. And now the waiting begins. Oh and she had to confirm my email like 10 times. lol.

This is Never to be Shared with My Dad

So, I was playing the 20 Question Disney Style. And used Mickey Waffle and it came up as an answer. Which to me is really funny. So, I'd figure I'd share this story with you.

Now we have this huge inside family joke about Mickey Waffles, with I believe strawberries and ice cream. They were supposedly sold in Disney MGM Studio which is now DHS. I believe the year they disappeared was the year they changed the name.

Supposedly there was this place in between where the fountains/water around where the green dinosaur was that sold these mysterious dessert waffles if you will.My first trip to Disney was in July/August 1997 and my last was Chrsitmas 2004 over these years my dad ate these "waffles" everytime we went on Star Tours up until our last trip that is. We spent 24 of 25 trips hearing they exist, for at least half my mom didn't believe they existed either until one day she didn't want to go on star tours....let me say that from that day on she rode less often. Once my dad even kept the reciept to "prove there are mickey waffles."

Let's just back up a bit. I am 100% aware that if you get breakfast in disney you can get Mickey Waffle. In fact I've had a breakfast mickey waffle. But supposidly these are bigger and you get toppings on it and all this stuff.

So, on our last trip to disney my dad like fine I'll take you guys to get a mickey waffle so your stop saying I'm lying. Conveniently they had disappeared. So, to this day as far as I'm concerned the Mickey Waffle Stand does not exist.

Now I've been doing some research...and so far I've only found these reference to the Mickey Waffle...

"One snack you must have above all is a Mickey shaped Belgium waffle which can be found at any buffet or breakfast place. " Joe T.

But that says buffet or breakfast so obviously it's not my daddy's waffle.

"The Sleepy Hollow stand, tucked in a corner in Liberty Square, has funnel cakes and Mickey waffles, two guilty pleasures."

That's in Magic Kingdom. And, this was specifically MGM.

"I’ve always got to get a waffle from norway at EPCOT. warm waffles with strawberry jam. instant sugar coma, but so worth it."

That's in Epcot.

So, as of right now I'm STILL convinced there are no mickey waffles in MGM.

P.S. Good luck to everyone on there interview and application for the Fall 2010 Disney College Program I hope we all get in and have a great time.

10 things.....aka 10 picture

So I'm like totally bored and have nothing better to do. SO I took the idea of 10 things from the vlogs and made 10 pictures...ya. But I used my cell phone to take them so my cells not include but it's a verizon allias 2nd addition. that's the one that flips both ways.. But I didn't count it in my 10 cause it would have been hard to do. lol.

Picture Number 1

This is a picture of my wall. There the little stick on things for your wall and I absolutely love them. These are what made the theme for my room I have all different color butterflies and flowers.

Picture Number 2

These are my to very good friends Mikey the doll Full name Micheal Jazzy...I was really into Jasmine from aladin when I was little but my doll was distinctively decided to be a boy. Better yet you had to figure out if his name of the day was Jazzy or Mikey or Michael.

P.S. the monkey is my dance monkey he holds two of my ribbon and a metal and his names Petey.

Picture Number 3

This is my door shoe holder that does not hold shoes. It holds stuff and I will hopefully have something like this in Disney if my roommate doesn't object. Oh and my leis. I'll probably bring one of them too. It was from one of my old room themes but they still fit in this room.

Picture Number 4

Milk Crates!!!!In bright colors. I use them for my hoodies cause I technically don't have a closet in my room. My closets the coat closet so it's not really convenient.

Picture Number 5

My television. I absolutely love my television. I bought it all by myself.

Picture Number 6

This is my butterfly binder. I use it to hold scrapbook stuff. I want to make one like this for disney. Disney style though.

Picture Number 7

My coin sorter. Each of them have a name on them. I got it for Christmas I really wanted a change counter but my mom found this and it's 10 times better.

Picture Number 8


IPOD ALARM CLOCK!!!! It eats the i pod and is absolutely amazing. Plays great quality of music. Oh and it has two alarm setting so theoretically if I bring this to disney we wouldn't need to alarm clock. And the beeping is so annoying...you can wake up to music to if you want to...and you can beep one and music the other.

Picture Number 9


My DVD. I like DVD cause I'm as bad as a two year old and can watch the same movie 50 times and it doesn't bother me....actually it tends to put me to sleep.

Picture Number 10


My pillows. I have 1 body pillow, 4 regulrs, 2 queen, and 1 kings pillow, and one reading pillow. I can guarantee I will have several pillows. My other sleep requirements is that my beds next to a wall.

Well that's 10 things in my room. Hope you enjoyed.


So my interview is scheduled for 8:30PM on Tuesday night. And, i am really excited that I got a night time time because that is so much better for me then mornings which is what I had last time.
