I believe that the people in navy Anon was asking about are known as PAC (parade audience control.) :)

Thanks! If that’s a role choice, then that’s the one you would rate. If it’s not there under all of the Roles then that means it’s under another Role and, sorry, I do not know what Role that would be.

pinkpassiverogue said: Hey! Applications just came out this morning(8/20) and I was wondering. I applied this morning and immediately I got a message saying (move into the phone interview!) but... I haven't taken the web based interview yet... Is that okay? Is that bad? Or does that happen all the time? Thanks for your help! And good luck everyone!

If you’ve applied for Disney and have done the WBI the last time, that might be why you didn’t have to do the WBI this time. If this is your first time applying, that might be a glitch unless Disney changed things around and we don’t know about it. Once you talk to your interviewer and you haven’t done the WBI if your situation is the latter, then I would mention it to your interviewer just to be on the safe side.

Anonymous said: Hello, I was wondering what the job title is for those that work during the parades, with the navy blue outfits? Usually guarding the area during the parades and if they have any other tasks to do as well? And my friend was wondering if she could apply for the water parks? (Does she have to be cpr certified before she applies?)

We had someone ask this question before and I went back trying to find the answer and I couldn’t, sorry. It might have been under Attractions for Main Entrance Operations. They usually entertain the kids until the parade starts and makes sure guests don’t get in the way of the parade.

Disney will place you where they want to. Your friend can request to work at one of the water parks but it is ultimately Disney’s choice on where they want to put people. Don’t quote me on this but I think your friend would go through training with Disney and can get CPR certified then.

Anonymous said: Does the college program check your credits/grades/gpa when you apply? And I'm worried bc I see that many people have volunteered and I've never done such a thing, so is that going to bump me down?

They do verify that you are in school but I’m not sure if they check your GPA. It is a requirement to be in good standing with your school to do the Program. No, you not volunteering is not going to bump you down. People who have no job experience have applied for the Program and gotten in.

Anonymous said: For a lifeguard role, what are the requirements on footwear? Also, will they really send you home if you fail the swim test?

Sorry, anon. We don’t know what the requirements on footwear for lifeguard are. I don’t think they will send you home. Hopefully they will try putting you in a different role instead before sending you home.

Anonymous said: Hello! I was wondering if Disney made special scheduling accommodations for religious reasons. I know the cp schedules are pretty inconsistent but I'm hoping to still attend church every sunday morning. Any ideas? Thanks!

Yes they do. You have to talk to your scheduling manager to see if it would be possible to accommodate you.

kbelle14 said: So I actually went to my school today to ask them about DCP and they had no idea it even existed. I go to a state college in MA and I feel like there must be some people who have done it via one of the state schools. They way they explained it to me was I would probably have to ask my advisor and if they didn't know I'd have to sell the powers that be at my school on why I should go and how it applies to my business admin major. Do you know of anyone who has done the DCP from a MA state school?

I don’t but hopefully a follower here will be able to help and contact you.

Anonymous said: Hi!! I have heard there are all kinds of things behind the scenes at the parks for Cast Members like a Subway Restaurant, a cafeteria, a bank, and a hair salon. Is that all true?! Ha Ha! If so, what other things are there for Cast Members only? Thanks!

Yep it’s true! It’s really hard to list everything because it’s so much. Once you get into the Program, you get a Program Guide that has some Cast Member only places and then you’ll be able to go on the HUB to see everything.
