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
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: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
Apparently now we fill out the I-9 at Casting, so as long as everything else says “completed”, you’re good.
Question:I just want to say thank you so much for making this blog! You have so much information on here that has helped me so much as I begin my own college program. Thanks for putting in the hard work and time to help out all of us aspiring cast members :) - katelyngail
You’re very welcome! Thank you! Have a magical time!
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
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.
