Info Post #7: The Waiting Game.

 

I watched the e-presentation, applied as soon as the application was up, prepped for the interview, and then interviewed as best I could. And now... it's all out of my control. 

This is the hard part. The Waiting Game. Luckily, there are a multitude of distractions available to keep you occupied until you find out whether or not you'll be heading down to Florida soon!

  1. Do homework. Lots of it. OH WAIT, THAT'S JUST ME AND MY RIDICULOUS SCHEDULE. LOLZ.
  2. YouTube. I LOVE YouTube. A lot. The sheer number of hours I have wasted away on that site.... I don't think I even want to know. Between vlogs, attraction ridethroughs, parades, fireworks, and meet & greet videos, there's virtually no end to the time you can waste.
  3. Watch the E-Presentation. Multiple Times. Tara gets less annoying with each view, somehow.
  4. Facebook! Join the facebook group for your program (like Fall 2010 for me) or creep on past groups.
  5. Chat! There are currently two meebo chatrooms for the Fall 2010 CP. Comment with your email if you want the info.
  6. Podcasts - there are a bunch of these out there if you're into that sort of thing. I'm not a huge podcast person myself, but I know a lot of people who enjoy Inside the Magic.
  7. Download Google Earth and browse the 3D rendering of Disney World.
  8. Order the Vacation Planning DVD from disneyworld.com.
  9. Read! David Koening (Mouse Tails 1 & 2, Realityland) and Mousejunkies by Bill Burke are two of my favorites.
  10. Another good thing to read... blogs! Which you are currently doing. Two more to follow if you haven't checked them out already: PF Wait Watchers and Fantasyland Fashion.
Any other suggestions about surviving The Wait? Leave a comment!

I hadn't even thought about watching the Planning DVD!! Tomorrow evening I'll try to find mine and enjoy it while I wait.

I'm dying to start my own WDWCP blog, as a Fall 2010 hopeful myself (I'm on the DIS but not on the Facebook group as much), but I'm terrified of the whole "Don't count your chickens..." sentiment. :-/ Maybe I'm just being a pessimist.

So far I'm really enjoying reading your blog, as well as some of the other CP ones I've found!

Thanks. And I think you should go for it! But I get that - I'm always like "pending acceptance!" because I'm afraid of jinxing it. :)

Who are you on the Dis, out of curiosity?

I'm tink774. I tend to lurk more than I post, but I'm on there a bit more these days while we're all anxiously waiting!

I have a suggestion on how to survive the wait.... there's this show that has 47 episodes so far.... it's a good 4-5 hour time killer.
