October 21, 2010


So I was sitting on the bench by the water fountain in Strauss and noticed that I have three unread emails, thanks to my Google Chrome toolbar extension.  I clicked the icon and as I waited for the page to load, I literally crossed my fingers and said aloud (to Kadina and Megan V sitting with me), “I hope this is it, I hope this is it..” Kadina was like, “What?”

And then my inbox loaded.

From:  Disney College Recruiting

Subject:  Disney College Program: Your Invititation

I opened up the email, saw the purple Congratulations, and quickly skimmed the first couple of lines.

Dear Kaleigh,

Congratulations! You have been selected to participate as a Merchandise Cast Member on the Disney College Program in the Spring 2011 Season.


So I was simultaneously omigod-ing, informing Kadina who might be worried about my current state that I’ve applied for a Disney internship, and dialing my Mom’s work phone number. It was a busy thirty seconds or so, haha.

I had a quick-ish phone conversation with Mom about a few things.. 1. How friggin excited I am!! 2. I’ll go over to her house later and get things sorted out, and 3. Omg omg omg omg omg!!

I’m having a little spazzy freak-out every few minutes now, haha. I’m just like.. I can’t believe I made it in!!

I’m going to Walt Disney World in a few months. To live there.

Five days since my interview.

October 19, 2010

As the title suggests, today marks five days since my phone interview. I know of a few people on the Disboards who got accepted on their sixth and seventh days post-interview.. I’m starting to freak out each time I hear an email alert.

It’s gotten to the point where I haven’t thought much about what I’ll do if I don’t get accepted. I’m reading so much on the Dis and on the Facebook group about everyone’s travel plans and looking for a roommate, etc.. I have the super dangerous mindset that I’m going to get in, and the acceptance letter is just a formality.

I mean, I looked on my bank’s website today to see if they had any ATMs in Orlando.

It’s that bad.



Welcome to my blog!

October 19, 2010

So I’ve applied to and interviewed for the Walt Disney World College Program :]]

My interview was Thursday, October 14, 2010. Four loooong days ago.

This blog will serve a few purposes, I think.

  1. If/When I get accepted into the College Program, this will be an awesome way to keep in touch with all of my family and friends at once.
  2. This will also be a sort of journal that I can look back on as time passes.
  3. Hopefully, some future CPers will find my blog useful and whatnot, as I’ve found many CP blogs super informative.

I still have quite a few days to go until the projected 3-4 weeks until you’re supposed to hear back.. But a lot of people on the Disboards have heard back in about 10-14 days post-interview.

So we’ll see what happens. :]
