    Hi! I have applied for the Disney CRP and I saw there wasn't a post here yet about it. So I was just wondering if there were any other people applying for the CRP. Feel free to say hi.

    I'm waiting for the application to re-open as I missed the cut off 2 days :(. As soon as it is I will be applying and I can't wait, I check my emails at least twice a day to hear from yummy jobs to hear I can apply!!

    Hi I'm Adam, I just got back from my CRP… Possibly teasing with idea of applying again but have to keep slapping my wrist to not do it. I created about 12 videos and loads of information on a blog for the whole application process, so if you want to kill some time or get some ideas prior to applying then my channel is http://www.youtube.com/hattantimes and my blog where you can find help pages on your application http://www.hattantimesdoesdisney.com I also hear through the grape vine that applications will be opening in August, no exact day but you can relax and enjoy spring for now. Feel free to ask me anything @adamhattan ;)

    It's been a long wait! :D

    What are you looking to apply for, merchandise or food & beverage?

    It has! I don't really have a preference either way, so I'd be up for trying whatever. How about you? :)

    Wouldn't mind either but secretly my preference would always be merchandise. I always have a fear of dropping the food or drinks tray :p

    I've also worked in retail for 3 years so I'm well familiar with it and love the kind of interaction you get. :)

    Yeah dropping a tray would be something I would be worried about, even though experience wise I'm probably more suited to food and beverage I've never been a waitress so that would be a bit different! I would like to try merchandise for a bit of a change as well though :)

    Honestly I'd do anything just to get the opportunity to go! :D

    Does anyone know what the current hourly rate is? I found it a few months ago and can't seem to find it for the life of me now! I know the Historical Research Center thing is about $8 but you're not working for Disney directly :( Is anyone considering applying for this program? It's in the back of my mind as a last resort

    I dont know about pay for F&B and Merch but I do know that with F&B if you do table service pay drops as you are supposed to make it up with tips.

    As for HCR someone I know through the application process is out there now working in HCR has said that you dont get gate passes for family and friends (you still get one for yourself) , no early release, no pin trade and you have to pay more for rent. Pros you get paid more, smaller group you work with (could be a con if you like a big crowd)and you get the same discounts as cast members.

    Hope that helps you ^_^

    Ah OK, thank you. Well I think I'll stick to my original idea of it being a Plan B if the other positions are not an option :)

    Hi, hope this isn't a stupid question but...
    I've applied to the CRP directly through the Disney website- not Yummy jobs (which I have only heard about through reading this!), and of what I've read of the yummy jobs application form, it seems pretty different to the one I have just completed!
    Does anyone know if this is still a valid of method of application for UK applicants?
    Have I just made a massively stupid blunder?
    Any suggestions will be hugely appreciated!:(

    Apparently Disney will just direct you back to Yummy Jobs. I don't believe you can apply directly to Disney (Unless you're Canadian). Yummy Jobs will start recruiting in the summer, so it's just a case of holding on tight till the applications open. :)
