February Update: 4 months to go


In exactly 4 months from today I'll be arriving in Florida! Time has flown by and it's incredible to think that it has been 4 months since I was told I'd be working at Disney World and now there's only a few months left.

A few updates: my CRB was sent off and has come back clean - woo hoo! I'm not a criminal. So that's another step ticked off my list.

February is when our Disney information packs are due to come, which from what I understand include an official offer letter, a Disney Look book, and information on completing our Visa.


There's been some talk online about Travel Insurance, which I will be taking out at some point ,but I'm not sure whether to do it through Yummy Jobs or whether I can find a 3rd party that will do it cheaper. I'm going to work there so need some kind of special cover. Medical cover is through Disney and comes out of our wages this year.


So the timeline for things to come is:
- February - get Disney information pack
- March - Book visa appointment towards the end of March
- Mid-April - Visa appointment at US embassy
- May - Get passport back and visa documentation, pay program assessment fee $100
- June - Off we go

I'll be doing a post straight after this one with the costs of the programme so far for reference.

The most exciting update is that I'm now going to be going to LA! After New York, I'll be flying across the country and seeing Hollywood, the Chinese theatre, some nice beaches, Universal Hollywood and the original Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure - including Cars Land and World of Color! I'm very excited!!
