    So we all have got the amazing news that we are on our way tot he magical place on earth, but when are we all going? And to do what!?
    Like the CRP's we too should get organised (well ish as we are students) and start making lists so things are easy to follow.

    I have been accept for Attractions on the 2nd and planning on flying from Gatwick.

    Anyone else?:)

    I'm also starting Attractions on 2nd June, haven't thought about flights - but Gatwick sounds as good as any! (is that the best of the London airports to go from for Florida/Orlando?)

    Was attractions your first choice as well Chris?

    Hi, it was my first choice yeah! Really excited now, it would be good to know which attraction, but that we will probably not know until we get there.
    Well any london airport is good, but I think most (if not all) flights to orlando go from gatwick.

    There's quite a lot from Manchester, and there certainly used to be quite a lot from Heathrow!
    I'm nervous now - what if I can't cope with the volume of people????
    Also - QS F&B wasn't my first choice, wonder how they decided on what role we got?
    Feel free to add me on Facebook (katie james) - just say you're from wdwip!
    It was a really nice (late) birthday present!!!!!!!!!!
    :D :D :D :D

    You'd better gt them a nice card to make up for it!!

    I'm so jealous you all know, I still have 2 weeks to wait for my interview
  12. Custodial wasn't my first choice either for summer 08 but I ended up loving it. They really are a good bunch of people! Just remember the guest interaction that you are going to have, more than anyone else in the parks! Take advantage of the good parts of the role not the cleaning up etc.

    Just realised this morning that the 21st June's Father's Day.
    Usually there's something called 'Waving Goodbye' in the Chaplaincy Centre on the last Saturday of term - which would mean I'd have to go straight to the airport from there if I went. Hmmm, decisions - cos many of my closest friends are final years!
    Well, I have almost 6 months to try and convince them to change the day!!!!!
    Got the email confirming my confirmation - it wasn't a dream!!

    Haha same!!
    Now just have another wait for this phone call. Although it isnt such a bad wait :)

    A positive breeze compared to the others!
    Trying to work out if I can afford a holiday there at Easter, or if I should just wait till June!!!
    I wish they'd tell us when they're going to call, I have a rather erratic timetable, and a rather erratic phone, so I don't want to miss the call!
    I think we should all have a meetup at some point, celebrate getting in!!

    I was going to do somehting over easter disney related, although now I am hitchhiking to morocco for charity with some friends - as you do like.
    If i get any call from a london number during any lectures, I am leaving the room, no questions about it. They might not like it, but tuff. :)
    We should definately all have a meetup! But location might be an issue.

    There are direct flights from Gatwick with British Airways and Virgin Atlantic - 1 or 2 a day, plus direct flights from Manchester with Virgin. BA use a 777, Virgin use 747's. As far as I know both still use older multichannel entertainment systems (e.g. 12 repeating channels, not on demand movies), so not much between them. One of the bigger differences is that BA let you carry 2 pieces of hand baggage, Virgin only one, plus one small extra like an umbrella, book, camera or handbag, but whether they check is another matter.

    On the major departure days all these flights are likely to have many ICP's. If you go from another airport you'd have to change planes on a connecting flight at another airport, e.g. New York or Atlanta, and have less likelihood of other ICP's on the flight, put perhaps a cheaper ticket.

    I'm doing Custodial from May 26th. Looks like fun. I'm getting my plane ticket as my christmas present this year, but I have no idea where to go from, or who to book it with.
