I GOT A FACE TO FACE!!!! AHHHH!!! this is soooooo exciting! soo sooo exciting! i check my email every morning hoping for an email, and today there was one there. all the title says in Walt Disney World so i was nervous opening it. Here's the email:
Thanks so much for taking your time in the recent telephone interviews for the Walt Disney World International Programs.
It was an absolute pleasure speaking with you and getting to learn a bit more about yourself and your unique culture. I was impressed by the enthusiasm and personality that you had for this program and would be delighted to invite you to the final interviews sometime in late October!
Currently we are still working with Walt Disney World to verify the exact locations we will be holding the final interviews this fall and next spring. No matter where the interviews are held, we will still invite you to come, as I know many people have expressed interest in traveling. I will be contacting you in the upcoming weeks with more information about the interview locations as well as cities we anticipate to interview in, to assist in easing the travel distances.
Along with the interview city information, I will also be inviting you to submit your email address to share with others interviewing, so please do keep an eye on your emails and if your contact information changes please do inform me.
Once again, congratulations on reaching this stage of the recruitment process and I very much look forward to contacting you with more information in the very near future!
Have a Magical Day,

So as you can tell from the title I just had my phone interview!!!! I had woken up early because I thought Kristin might call and was lying there waiting and she did!!! I had been working on what to say and praticing all the day before (and for a while before that!) and finally it was time. I think I did alright, I know i was smiling the whole time:) So she asked routine questions like my email address, age, if I had a passport, where I'd heard of the program and if I wanted to work in food & beverage, attractions or merchandise. I said food and beverage. Then she asked why I wanted to work for Disney, and to tell her something about Canada and then my hometown. I think i didn't answer the best on Canada as a whole but that my hometown answer was good. It's hard to tell someone about Canada as a whole in 3 seconds. the Conversation went super fast !!! and it wasn't as scary as I had thought. She asked if I had any questions and I asked how many people they were looking for and she said that it's actually just that you are competing with yourself nothte other people and that it's based on your own merit. If Disney likes everyone they will take everyone and then just put them in different programs ! So that was kind of cool, I just have to be me and no matter how many other super disney kids there are we could all make it:) Also I asked about the face to face location and time and she said that they were still deciding on which side of the country to have the interviews first, and i said that i would go to either because i go to school in ontario and she said that lots of people had been saying they were willing to fly (or take a mini-break as Kristin said). It's cool that there are other people as eager as me!! But here's the thing, she never really said that they wanted me to go to the face to faces. She said that they would be in touch in the next while about the next steps of the process and that when i move to ontario i should send her an email with my address in case they want to send me some post. Which sound super positive and good, but she never right out said it sooo....we'll just have to....wait! more. again. wheeeeeee
