Okay so drum roll……I got accepted!!! The wait has come to close, 44 days after initially applying, finally i’m in! I couldn’t be more excited; I got Fall Advantage, Merchandising! I arrive May 23, 2016 and will be there until January 7, 2017!!
I got my email saying i was accepted while sitting in the waiting room of my hand surgeon about to do my pre-surgery appointment for my pinky surgery tomorrow. Yes, I said pinky! This will be pinky surgery number two! I was stressing out about surgery and I was completely surprised when I got the email! Yay!
I was able to complete all three steps rather quickly. In the initial “Congratulations” email, there are instructions on how to accept your offer.
I found that these steps were very easy to follow. I was able to complete the steps without any difficulty. Although, many people on the Facebook site were experiencing issues with log in usernames and passwords, and with the disney system not registering that they paid there dues. I suggest, if possible, accepting your offer as soon as possible. This allows for extra time in the case that you were to experience any issues. Also, save your passwords for dashboard and anything else that is Disney related! It would be a bummer if you weren’t able to accept your position because you couldn’t log in. After completing the three steps you will reach the confirmation page below!
In the weeks before arrival, i am to expect a few different emails from Disney. The first of which was this one which features my new boss, Mickey Mouse!
This email prompts you to dig into the DCP website, where there is information about many of the different aspect of the program. From the Disney look, to the apartment complexes and more it is all here.
Following that email, there was an email that requested more information for work purposes.
The whole process of accepting your offer is exciting and daunting at the same time. I was nervous i was going to skip a step or make a mistake. But if you follow the directions, it is relatively an easy, painless process.
Currently I coach gymnastics at a local gym, this is something I am going to miss a lot, and I had to tell them that I will be leaving which is rough. I have been there for four years, and prior to that I did gymnastics throughout my school years. That part of my life will have to come to a halt as I start a new chapter. I will definitely miss being in the gym and those kids. But now I get to begin planning for my Disney College Program adventure!
