Its my Birthday!! woop Woop!!

I got a letter from Disney the other day. Exciting! It was basically one of those "Thanks for your interest" letters. It also told me the time, date, and location of my audition. It did say that I am a "strong candidate" but they might say that to everyone. lol. Maybe not though, perhaps I am special. :D

I have been getting the run around with my school and possibly taking classes. However that is food for another post.

My interview was about and hour and a half ago. I think I did really well. I really tried to be honest and show my bubbly personality. I was asked what were my top 2 roles. I said Character Performer and attractions. I kinda wish I had said Bibbidi Bobbidi Botique but quite honestly it slipped through the cracks of my brain. I am relatively sure that once I find out who my recruiter is I can call and place that as my second fav. I am not positive about that but in the end it doesn't really matter. I made sure to only check things that I would actually want to do so as long as I get something that I checked I will be happy.

On a positive note I asked what are my chances of getting a role I want if I don't pass my audition and my interviewer, Susan, said that because I checked such a large amount (9 roles) that I would be likely to get something I would like. Or at least that is what i interpreted from her answer, which was a lot less concrete and more if-y.
I must say that all of the preparation I did helped SO MUCH. I browsed through several different threads on several different forums to get an idea of what type of questions I might be asked. While it varies from interviewer to interviewer there was definitely some overlap and if nothing else answering the other questions put me in the right mind frame.
So now comes the wait. I have to wait till April 19th to do my audition. After the audition I have 3 weeks to wait before I get my purple folder :D Basically just as school is ending, I will find out if I am accepted or not. Which is perfect because then I have to worry about the stupid school post office. Oh Joy.

Disney or Bust!

So I thought I would try and record my Disney College Program Experience. I watched the online presentation on Friday. I finished my application and role checklist on Friday too. I had to wait til today to call and set up my interview time. I ended up choosing to interview tomorrow at 7:20pm. Can we say short notice? I am wondering if that was the best choice but I can't exactly do much about it now. I really want to get that part over with anyway. I don't think I could stand the anticipation of waiting any longer.

Unfortunately I am going to have to wait anyway. I recently found out that Disney now has a character performer position for Tinkerbell. Tinkerbell has been one of my favorite Disney characters for so long. I decided that even though I am going to be so scared and nervous of auditioning if there is even a small chance that I might be able to be Tinkerbell I had to go and audition. So that is what I am going to do on April 19th at Ballet Austin. I know that it is not very likely that I will get to be Tinkerbell but maybe I will and if nothing else perhaps my short stature will help me be chosen to be a fur character.

Even if I don't get chosen to be a character performer as long as I get accepted into the program I will be happy. My wish list for roles are as follows:
  • Character Performer
  • Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Hostess- I hear that this is a very competitive position and that it is possible that salon experience is preferred. :( so who knows
  • Attractions
  • Merchandise
  • Hospitality
The last three are all ranked very closely. I also know that Attractions and Hospitality are pretty popular

Lastly I am very worried that I am going to be at a disadvantage because I am applying late and attending a late audition. I am scared that if I don't pass the audition all of the roles that I really want might be filled. I just have to to hope that in the chance I don't pass the audition (which my positive visualizations say won't happen-- I am going to pass my audition :D) my luck will hold out and I will get a role that I want.

So that is it for now. I am now going to send out emails to the registrar and my financial adviser so I can go talk to them about how I could work everything out with the College Program. BLAH!
