Hi! Yeah it needs to be a UK university course unfortunately, UK college courses aren’t accepted, I think it’s just Ireland colleges which (I think) are their version of our universities which is why is says uni/college! Hope this helps x
Hi :) sorry but I don’t really remember too much from my original application and for some reason I am unable to access my account to look at what I had written! I’d say just try and show your passion for working for the company and you’re interested in the cultural aspect of it - meeting people from all over the world and sharing your culture with them & vice versa! I don’t think I did a ‘motivational letter’ so couldn’t say what would be suitable to put in that unfortunately but I hope this helps :)
Hi! This is covered in my FAQ section under ‘Interview FAQ’ .. an application followed by 2 interviews within the UK if you are successful! Hope this helps :)
Hey, no exams are involved. I did a post on it here: http://carly-mcintyre.tumblr.com/post/24850313997/traditions
I also talk a bit about what is involved in the class in one of my YouTube videos - the link is in my sidebar! x
Hello! :) the accommodation costs vary from each apartment size and also the complex (of which there are 4) I paid around $86 a week on my first year there and $101 a week on my second year there. The price varies from around $86 to $105 (approximately as this may have changed). It cost around £1000 for everything (flights, visa, medical & travel insurance, travel expenses to London for visa appointment etc.) I basically broke even making around the amount I spent getting there and took home $200. You could probably take home more money if you saved but I didn’t have the mindset of making money I was there for the experience over anything else.
I was there for 2 months & 2 weeks in my second year and just under 3 months in my first year (from the beginning of June to mid August).
I only had waitressing experience prior to applying and was given an Operations role as I stated I didn’t want to go out there and do the same job I have at home and I wanted to try a new experience.
Personally I haven’t applied for Dofe so I wouldn’t say it’s essential but I’m sure it would help :).
I didn’t have to change my accent although sometimes I had to tone my accent down as some people couldn’t understand my Scottish accent haha but it’s not a requirement.
I loved all my flatmates in 2012 and 2013! I shared with 7 other girls in 2012 and only 1 other girl last year and we all got on really well. Usually you barely see each other though as your work schedules are all different!
Hope this helps, feel free to add me on Facebook if you want any more info via message! You’ll find me under Carly McIntyre :)
Hey! Yes as long as you will be 18 upon arrival in Orlando then you can apply :) that’s what I did on my first year there! Best of luck with your application x
Hi :) it depends on how much training is required for particular rides, for example as you are only working for the summer you wouldn’t be put somewhere like Rock’n’Roller Coaster or Splash Mountain as it requires too much training. I didn’t know of anyone who worked on a roller coaster or any of the ‘big’ rides on either of my programs. Hope you enjoy your program wherever you end up working :) xx
Congratulations! :D you will be doing one or the other :). Attractions includes all of the rides and shows (except big rides that require a lot of training like splash/space mountain/great movie ride/rock n roller coaster etc) and Main Entrance Ops includes being on Parades/Audience Control, Park Greeting (these two are combined if you are at Magic Kingdom but it’ll be one or the other if it’s any other park), or you may be on Autoplaza which is in the parking lot assisting with traffic/in a booth. You won’t find out which park you’re in until around the 3rd or 4th day of your arrival in Orlando. Enjoy your program & hope this helps! :)
