I just think its beneficial. Not a necessity. If she can get experience with serving or pub/bar work that would be great.

Again maybe I am wrong but lots of people worked for McDonalds, boots, pubs, Starbucks. Not saying you need these places but theres a recurring theme.

I applied four times. Some people had applied up to eight. Some were lucky first time. Show passion. Talk about your culture in your cover letter.

What Disney want most is authenticity. If you live in a small town. Research it. Find an interesting story. The managers at the Rose and crown want you sharing this with guests as most will never get the chance to go to the Uk.

In your cover letter make sure you put what you can bring to the role but also what youll take away from it.

Hope this helps!

Is she on the crp?

I booked off ADOs and theres a Facebook group where we would all post to see who can take that shift.

Id always ask for extra hours and usually worked 6 days a week for four weeks then take four days off so I didnt miss out. Id ask for days off either side of my regular days off.

Im not sure how it works for other programs

Thanks for posting - just sent to my DS whose plan is to go to Drama School next year, as he wants to act, and doesn't have a back up plan ... this might just work!

Thanks for posting about your adventure . My dd is going to apply next year. We've just got back from a Disney cruise and she wants to apply there too, but you have to be 21 years old and she is only 18!

I was interested to read about your salary/tips etc. Hope those who don't tip read your thread too!
