So my program ends in 4 weeks. WHAT? I know. For me at least, it feels like I was accepted yesterday. With that being said I have a few regrets. Hopefully I can complete some of these things so I don't regret them forever...

1. Not going to Victorian and Alberts: So dinner at V&A's is like $300. I make good money at Le Cellier. I could "justify" this experience. It's a once in a life time experience, and I LOVE food. So why didn't I do it? Because I am too frugal and I had no one to go with.

2. Stay Club Level at a Deluxe Resort: It disgusts me how much it costs for one night at the Deluxe Resorts with the cast discount, let alone with club level. But I did want to try it and I don't think I will have the opportunity.

3. Stay at More Disney Resorts: I only stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge and Riverside. I wanted to stay in way more hotels.

4. Go to the Parks More: I'm so lazy! I wish on morning shifts I went to the park after work, and not home to watch Netflix!!!!

5. Go to Nashville: Nashville was everything I dreamed of and more. When I came down here I said I would go again, and I am sad I didn't!

6. Doing Things That Made me Unhappy: I attended many events and parties I didn't even want to be at. I wish I didn't go to those things because I felt obligated. This was my year! I should have done more of the things I liked, and less of the things that stressed me out.

7. Staying at the Grand Flo / Senses Spa: I told myself as a reward for getting into service I would stay at the Grand Flo and get a massage at the Senses Spa.... I didn't... but I deserved it! Should have :/

8. Cared about Sections: It's so easy to get caught up in the "good" and "bad" sections in the restaurant. If I stopped caring a long time ago, I think I would have enjoyed work a little more.

9. Send Postcards to Family: I didn't send one. Oops.

10. Go to the Dentist! I'm paying dental, I better get my teeth cleaned before I go home ... (OR ELSE HEATHER!)

Whether you've done a program before, or you are applying for your first, consider the things that aren't "bucket list" items that you might regret not doing if you leave.

  2. As someone who has done a program before in 09-10 and is currently applying for his 2nd I can sympathize with some of your regrets, but know this.. In 5 years.. You won't regret a thing because you were able to live a dream life. Enjoy your last 25 days as much as you can.. Leave your legacy and never leave the people you met! Congrats!

    1. Wow thanks! That makes me feel better. Some of my regrets I feel like I will be sad I didn't do, but I also did things that I never planned on doing as well! Like I'm going on a cruise in two weeks! So it does balance out! Good luck applying :)

  3. Hey Heather!
    Thank you so much for all of your videos, they have helped me immensely in this process. Just like you did a year-ish ago, I'm flying to Toronto for my face to face interview from Kelowna, British Columbia! I've been stalking all of your videos because I know you said you we're going to post the 6 questions you had prepared for your interviewer, but I can't seem to find them anywhere and I'd love to know! I'm having a bit of a hard time figuring out what to ask myself! My interview is in 6 days to wish me luck.. :^)

    1. Hi Noah!

      Thank you so much! I am glad that you like everything and that I have been helping. I am sorry I never posted my questions. I didn't want people thinking that those should be the "standard" questions you should ask, because it should be personalize and things you generally are inquiring about.
      My memory is a bit fuzzy but I remember asking
      -If we can move up in the company and try different positions in food and beverage?
      -If theres leadership roles available
      -If we can extend our one year stay
      -And I believe the final question I asked was what Kiki's (the lady who interviewed me/now my manager), favourite part is working for Disney

      Hope this helps! Again try and personalize them. The last question I did not have prepared it just came up naturally in the conversation. So take the current conversation and maybe pull questions from there... BUT HAVE SOME PREPPED TOO!

      The interview is nerve wrecking, but it truly is a conversation about you and why want to be at Disney. Let your personality shine, and make sure you dress in the Disney Look attire! Good luck :)

    2. Awesome! Thank you so much I'll be sure to keep that in mind when I'm being interviewed! Enjoy the rest of your program! :^)
