    i will defo keep applying. no doubt about it, but i just cant help but think about it too much.

    this is the only thing i have really ever wanted!

    i never grew up thinking, "i want to be a doctor/mechanic/musician ect" or never really had any ambitions in my life.

    the only thing that i have ever reallyyyy wanted is to work at Walt Disney World. It's all i have ever wanted and the have refused me that :( and the next 6/7 months or how ever long it will be are gonna be awfull for me, i seriosly have no idea what i will do.

    i missed the jan applications by only a few days or so of having founs out about the CRP and was gutted, but to wait untill now, apply, then get rejected. now i dont know how much you guys REALLLLY want this, but when i heard i was rejected, my heart just broke in two!

    i really dont know what to do with myself now :(

    Only one answer for it... get the right job so that they won't turn you down next time. Don't let this break you, think pro-actively. Think "What is it that I'm missing that they want from me?" Go out and get it, and try again.
  3. Well said Gary! But we do know what to do with yourselves. We get ourselves sorted. Have fun in 22 days!!! and book our holiday :)

    Hospitality is always a good start. I worked in a hotel since I was 16 and left in december ( with university and WDW in between). My Application, I didnt do a cover letter and 'Disney'ed up all of the like 'motivation' bits. Seriously, never ever give up... the experience when you get there is just amazing and so you just have to pick yourself up and re- apply! Have you thought of applying for the Disney Cruise Lines also? A few of my friends from my last program work on DCL and although say its v hard worrk, they love what they do?! So maybe in the meantime you could apply for that also.

    My good friend from Vista Way :) came back to the UK after the J1 and just wanted to go back to WDW but got rejected in the January. So he emailed YJ saying how unhappy he was at not being given a chance. In March he was offered a last minute position and was out in Fl by the end of March.... so you really never know!!!

    All I will say is this whole process is worth it.... completely... and for those of you that get through and go to Disney.... the only thing you have to prepare yourself for is the leaving bit.... it is awful- I have never felt anything like it. I have now been back in the UK just over 1 year and somedays i still find it very difficult not being with my Disney family, working at the Caribbean Beach etc....So that is my word of advice... be prepared for the heartbreak!!!

    I know this is a different topic but does anyone know why the J1 int prog got cancelled? very strange?!

    I hope your all well and I hope you dont think I am some know-it-all.... because I am not and I doubt I will get past my phone interview....but i just want to share my thoughts and past experiences with all you lovely people! :).... if anyone wants to add me to face book my name is alex wallington and i am on the kent network.....what a div... you can see my name is alex wallington already....durrrr xxxxxxxx

    Honestly, like Holly said, I think a lot of it is just luck. From looking at those who got interviews as opposed to those who didn't in January, and again this time, there really doesn't seem to be much of a pattern. Some people with loads of "relevant" experience don't get interviews, whilst some people with very little experience do get interviews (and get offered positions)
    I don't think anyone really knows what the secret to getting an interview is (but I know plenty of us would pay good money to know what it was!!) All you can really do is put your best effort into your application and hope for the best.
    Don't let rejection this time get you down guys - it's not the end of the road, only a slight detour.

    Hi everyone, I had my phone interview this morning and I hope it went well :) But its hard to know exactly what they are looking for so no point stressing about it. I am off to Florida on Monday for a 3 week holiday so I am sure that will make the wait for the next email go quickly ;D

    Still waiting on a reply from YJ. I can't believe how nerve wracking it actually is, every time my phone beeps or the mail icon on my mac has a red dot next to it I keep thinking "this is it", but it never is lol
