I've pretty much given up now. Just emailed Hannah to confirm I need at least four week's notice now since I'm out of my probation period at work but it was just a half hearted attempt really and this week all the excitement has completely gone. There's too many of us on the waitlist still, and I just feel like all my luck's run out.

Just got back from a lush walk on the beach with the dog followed by some tea, scone and jam. Mmmm. How very English of me. It was freezing but just what I needed to blow away some cobwebs. My phone's ran out of charge and I haven't got a charger yet so for once I can't check my phone every two minutes on my day off, which is actually going to make a nice change! X

I'm really getting down now. Everyone I talk to is so excited, so busy planning and booking tickets, and I'm still stuck in the same routine that I've been in since October. I try and get on with my life but every so often I remember and my heart skips a beat a little bit as I check my phone, and of course there's never a missed call there. Mondays, I think 'maybe they'll sort out dates this week, maybe today I'll hear' and although I've done it a thousand times I calculate that 2.30pm is the earliest I'm likely to hear, since Disney will be 5 hours behind and, of course, they need to have at least half an hour to email yummy with my name. Half four inevitably arrives and my heart sinks because that's what time yummy's office hours are over, so I know I'm probably not going to hear after that although I only really stop looking at my phone at about 6pm, when I have to admit defeat. I then tell myself 'well maybe they've sent the email this afternoon, so yummy will get it in the morning' and so on and so forth. Thus continues my week until the weekend when I actually have a couple of days where I don't panic every time I realise I haven't checked my phone for at least 10 minutes. Of course, Sunday night it all starts again with 'It could be this week!'. It's draining me. I had a nightmare last night where Disney wanted me to go in two weeks time, and I remember just crying throughout my dream because after all the hard work and waiting I didn't think I could get everything organised in time. I woke up this morning feeling awful and it hasn't really left me today.

I have the most amazing family in the world. I love them so much and they do so much for me, more than I ever deserve. But sometimes, that's not a good thing. It's so easy to sit back, get into a routine and always stay as the little girl that gets looked after by everyone. I can't do that much longer.

Many thanks for attending the recent interviews for the Walt Disney World International Programs! The Disney Recruiters and the Yummy Jobs Team were very excited to meet you, and had a great time getting to know you and your reasons for wishing to work at Walt Disney World.
Disney was very pleased with the amount of interest we received from applicants across the country wanting to participate in Disney’s Cultural Representative Program. Your qualifications, along with those of other applicants, made their decision a challenging one. Participant selections were made after much evaluation and deliberation.
The standards were extremely high and at this time the Disney Recruiters are not able to offer you a position on the Cultural Representative Program. However! The Disney Recruiters did feel you were a GREAT applicant and would like to keep your file for their Opportunity List! This list is put together to enable great applicants, such as yourself, the opportunity to go to Walt Disney World when additional positions arise, and the best news is that Disney is now looking to fill positions starting all the way into to September 2011 allowing the possibility of even more available roles!
Your application is currently being considered for a program start date between February 2011 and September 2011 and we will be keeping your details on file until the end of March 2011 by which time we WILL have contacted you and all available positions will be filled.
If Disney is not able to find a suitable role for you, we will also notify you by the end of March 2011.

Many thanks for taking time in the pre-screen interview for the Disney’s Cultural Representative Program. We were impressed by your performance and are delighted to invite you to the final interview stage.
Your interview will be held on Saturday 2nd October 2010, at the Disney Attractions Office at 3 Queen Caroline Street, Hammersmith, London W6 9PE. Please see the link below for a map
Transportation to the interview is at your own expense.
You will need to arrive at 9.30am as the Disney presentation will start at promptly at 10.00 am. 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.
followed by some other general information about the interview and what I need to bring. I can't wait! I'm going down the night before and staying in a hotel nearby, and hopefully meeting up with some of the wdwip forumers the night before to get to know everyone. It's going to be so scary but I'm mega excited!
I need to keep reminding myself that this is still just an interview, and they still need to turn some people down at this stage. So I just need to do everything in my power to make sure it's not me: work on my speaking skills, interview skills, answers for interview questions, smiling, eye contact, Disney knowledge- everything! The more prepared I am, the more I will be able to relax during the interview itself and not be taken by surprise.
But I can't believe it! I'm down to the last 150 out of over 1000, which is a major accomplishment in itself. They usually offer places to around 60-80 people, so I'm in with a chance as long as I don't mess it up. I'm going to work as hard as I can during these three weeks, and since I have an interview for a job in Sheffield (which I don't want!) a few days before, I can use that to practise! Wow :D Today was a good day!! xxx
