OMG! I just got accepted into the Disney World International Program!

EEEEEEEEEE! So I just got home from work and checked my emails, and sure enough, there was one in there from the Aussie Disney Rep saying…

Hi Lynda,

Congratulations!!! You have been accepted to take part in the Walt Disney World International Program.

My God I am so excited right now! Too much to comprehend at the moment. I’ll have to let it all sink in. Given that I pass my visa interview, July 18 will be my departure date and Florida will be my home for a year! EEEEEEEEE! I will continue to blog my journey from here on 🙂

      Hi Sofia. I applied by emailing the Australian representative. She emailed me all the paperwork, I filled it out and sent it back to her, and within two weeks she organised a phone interview with Disney for me. I had the interview over the phone yesterday and was accepted yesterday also via email. The whole process took about two weeks. Good luck!

    Congratulations. How exciting!!! Well done, must have been a hard process to break through. Did you see our Dec/Jan issue of the mag because the brand profile was on Disney (if you didn’t I’ll send you a copy)?


    • Lynnie says:

      Oh, Kate, I’d absolutely love a copy! Thanks. I’m hoping to make the right connections there and squirm my way into the Marketing/PR group and do either paid/voluntary work for them on my days off. I’m going to make the most of this program to help secure myself a marketing position when I eventually get back to Australia. If you want anything written up for the mag etc while I’m taking part in the program I’d LOVE to offer my time. I will definitely blog about my experience frequently right here. I’ll be taking a communications and marketing class at Disney University too; so excited!

    Congrats! What an awesome opportunity. Love your feedback on the STA Travel Wire blog too. (lead me to this blog) Cheers! 🙂

    • Lynnie says:

      Hi Audrey. Glad you found your way over to my blog. Hope it can be useful to you as I see you are a lover of travel also. Checked out your blog. You guys are so lucky to have the STA Travel Internship available over there. STA Travel Australia has nothing like that 😦 Good luck with it!
