  • Question: I've been hearing mixed answers on this but do we really need to bring in a check at Casting or can we just give our account number for our bank? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    If you fill out your bank info online on the New Hire forms you should be all set, otherwise yes, being a voided check.

Answer
  • Question: Question about the new hire paperwork we're to do online, how long do we have to complete it? I arrive August 11, and I've been trying to do it for like two weeks and for some reason when I "sign and submit" the forms, it just keeps saying "pending". Any tips? I've tried using the browsers they suggest, and have the required operating systems to run it. Thanks! Btw, your blog is great. Super helpful. Thanks for taking the time to answer all these questions! - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    I check in August 4th and I literally just finished it yesterday. Sometimes you have to play around with the routing info for your bank info. I would call the recruiting office because sometimes they can go in and help - that’s what I had to do because I tried using five different computers and still had issues!

  • Question: Hey sorry if this has been answered already, but is our "scheduled arrival time" just the time span shown on our dashboard? - Anonymous

Answer
  • Question: So I was reading all of the Pre-Arrival posts and I9 information that you had on here but I just want to make sure. I submitted all my forms and they all say "completed" on the new hire portal. There is not an option for the I9? Did I miss something or do they do everything at check in? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Apparently now we fill out the I-9 at Casting, so as long as everything else says “completed”, you’re good.

Answer
  • Question: Okay so I really want to go to the Mickey Christmas Party cause I've never been and I'm obsessed with Christmas and its my birthday then. Do we get a discount when we get there or how does that work? I was going to go ahead and buy a ticket because they are already selling out for December! Also, for Halloween we get discounted in September right? Thanks! - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    You can get discounted tickets once you get to Disney but discounted tickets for the Halloween and Christmas parties are only for certain dates. So if you really want to go I would just pay regular price. That’s what I usually end up doing because it’s just easier and less stressful.
