Okay, so as you could see on my last post, I haven't settled on what my top 3 role choices are yet. Hospitality or concierge are most definitely my number one choice, but I'm having trouble deciding on the other two.
I think vacation planner sounds like a nice role, and I already know a ton about WDW tickets. I have experience in merchandise and after reading Bethany's Fall '09 blog it sounds like a good choice. Attractions is exactly what I used to think of when thinking of working at Disney, but now I'm not so sure. I think you might get more guest interaction in a few other roles. Plus, counting out guests and pointing and telling everyone to 'have a magical day here at Disney's Animal Kingdom!' might get a tad bit repetitive. Which role do you think has the most variety?
Don't get me wrong, I am absolutely giddy at the thought of being a smiling CM telling people to have a magical day and pointing with two fingers, but still...you know? 4-7 months is a long time to be doing the same things day after day. Variety is key to happiness in my world. :)
Next on the agenda is to decide on a term. Fall or fall advantage?
Pros for fall: This would give me a chance to potentially work during the summer and save up extra money for the CP, so I won't be broke all of the time. Also, I could take a couple classes. Plus, I wouldn't have to endure the heat of the summer, which would happen with FA.
Cons for fall: Shorter time. This term only lasts like 3-4 months, so maybe JUST as you were getting into a routine and had a good group of friends...you'll have to leave. I mean, I could always extend, but a lot of the people I've already met would leave. And I'll have to buy health insurance if I'm not in college at 19.
Times like this is when I'm glad I still have a month and a half before applications go up and I have to decide!
Anyway, here's a list of all the roles I'm interested in. I need everyone's opinions please. :)
1. Hospitality/Concierge (they're seperate now though, right?)
5. Vacation Planner
7. Character Attendant
8. BBB Hostess
10. Photopass Photographer
11. Main Entrance Operations
I doubt I have much chance with BBB or Photopass because I have no experience with hair or photography, but I don't think it will hurt to check them off anyways.
