How lovely of you, so kind. If she mentions that she is missing some type of food nearer the time I will definitely let you know. Thank you again.

Sorry
Hilarious! I have sent her a photo of this and sent it to her. Thanks so much again for trying.

No problem at all. Someone showed us kindness in 2018 when we went and I'm happy to repay it! If u wanted to send a small parcel of stuff next year I'm sure we can squeeze it in our case!

I'll give you a breakdown of her journey and you can take from it what you like.

She has applied 3 times but didn't get past the first stage the previous 2 times, but she was 3rd time lucky.

This is the job agency Disney use for this type of vacancy, so that's your first port of call. It's a great website and gives you lots of useful information:

yummyjobs/work/disne...ntativeprogram

I believe there is a Summer placement from the UK but she didn't want to do that so I'm sorry but I can't help with that route. There are 2 other longer contracts, both based in Epcot, the CRP (Cultural Representative Program) which is 12 months and the HRC (Historical Research Centre) which is 15 months.

The CRP cast members work in either merchandise in the shops, or food and beverage. Again, she didn't take this route so I'm not 100% but I think they can put in a preference, but it's not guaranteed. She applied for the HRC, again lots of information on here:

yummyjobs/work/disne...ve-program-hrc

This position is based in a historical research shop:

m.facebook/Historical-Re...6708899256528/

DD loves History, so it was a very easy choice for her to make tbh. This may help him decide which one to apply for as there are slight differences between the 2 programmes, in perks and wages, because the HRC shop (the Crown and Crest) is on Disney property but not run by Disney:

missdanielle/disney/hrc-or-disney/

The first stage was a written application to Yummy Jobs, usual stuff, why you want the job, about you and your experiences. This was a year and a half ago so I really can't exactly remember the questions. She didn't get past this stage on 2 occasions. But it was to be 3rd time lucky. She did later find out that her previous retail experience helped plus having completed a History degree was a massive bonus, also having lived abroad already and speaking German made her stand out.

The second stage was an interview at Yummy Jobs, it should have been in person, but as she was living and working in Germany they let her do a Skype interview. The 3rd stage was an interview at Disney HQ in London, with Disney HR staff from Epcot, very daunting she said, but also very exciting! The final interview (this 4th one was only for the HRC route) was a phone interview with Disney HR staff, the owner and the manager of the HRC shop.

This was last November I believe and she had to wait a nerve wracking 2 months before Yummy jobs phoned her to tell her the good news.

Sorry, that ended up being a very long post, but I think I've covered everything!

I hope she is having a fantastic trip. My DD did ICP in The Seas and Turtle Talk a few years ago and had an amazing experience. Lots of lovely Brits on the Dibb help the ICPs feel appreciated as they are the worst paid of any staff members as there is no minimum wage requirement for them!
