31 days 13 hours and 40 minutes

Until the face to face starts!! It's on October 28th in Toronto. I'm pretty pumped that I finally know when it's all going to happen. Here's the email that Kristen sent:

Greetings Kathryn!

Many thanks for confirming your preferred interview location of Toronto. During the interviews you will be able to attend a presentation about all about the Magic known as Disney, and gain information about the Cultural Representative Program and the perks that come with it. After the presentation, you will have the opportunity to experience an interview like you never have before with the Walt Disney World recruiters!

Your interview will be held at:

Wyndham Garden Hotel in Toronto
185 Yorkland Blvd.
Toronto, Ontario

Telephone: 416-493-9000

You will need to arrive at 9:00am as the Disney presentation will start at promptly at 9:30am. After the presentation your interview will be scheduled. You must be prepared to spend the whole day and will be required to dress in professional / business attire.

It is essential that you bring the following items to the interview:

3 Photocopies of your main passport page (picture page/passport number)
Your Passport
An up to date copy of your resume
A black pen to fill out application forms

If you have any questions about the location, please do contact me immediately.

Once again, congratulations on reaching this stage in the recruitment process and I look forward to meeting you as I will indeed be there bright and early on the 28th to meet you!

The whole thing is a form email, except the last two lines I think because I did ask if she was going to be there. haha. Anyways, that pretty much sums up what I'll be thinking about for the next month. I'm actually starting to believe that this is all actually happening and I may really be living in Florida for a year. Crazzy! I'm going to have to start brushing up on my interview skills and my disney knowledge (hard to believe i know, but a lot of other things have been crammed into my brain lately). So I may post once or twice between now and then but really the big news will take place two weeks after the 28th of October! Yikes! If it were any later I wouldn't be able to study for exams.

Update on Face to face

Hey! So it's been a while, but news seems to take forever with Disney. So Kristen (the yummy jobs lady) sent an email giving all of our email addresses to the other people who have applied and that was cool, i have a bunch of them on facebook now and they seem pretty cool. Plus it's nice knowing other ppl are waiting and excited like mee. So every fall before this the interviews were always on the west coast, so I've been expecting to fly out west for the interviews then spend a week at home with my family and friends and stuff. Then they have the spring interviews in the spring. However this year, due to the switch to Yummy Jobs from Cast-a-way perhaps, Kristen emailed and the face to face interviews are in Toronto at the end of October. So alas I am not flying anywhere, just taking the train to TO for a couple days to see the aunts and have my interview. It will be good though, and obviously i should be excited to save the money, but there were some people i was very excited to see back home. So i'm actually kind of dissapointed about that, but more just really pumped that it's actually happening sooon!!!! In two months i'll know the exact date that I'll (hopefully!!!) be leaving to fly to Orlando to start my year in Florida actually working for the mouse!!! Its unbelieveable, even though two months is pretty long. I applied June 1st, over 3 months ago, so what's 2 month right? I'll post again when i have the exact date!! yay:) it's all in the works of becoming reality after soo long. i'm pumped.
