I haven’t been keeping up with anything online lately, so I missed this announcement. That STINKS.
I just heard some people talking the other day about renting places for a week or so. I’m sure with all the tourists that visit Orlando there are some decent options like that.
However, I also heard that if you sign a lease in Orlando (and maybe Florida in general?) that is for less than 7 months, you pay some kind of tourist tax, which is not cheap.
This is all hearsay. Just passing things along in case they might help. :flowers: Good luck going seasonal! Let us know as soon as you hear something![/QUOTE]
I know! I was so extremely bummed when I heard they canceled the program… did I mention they canceled it THREE DAYS BEFORE APPLICATIONS COULD GO IN! :sad:
But yeah, as for finding somewhere to stay during my seasonal positions. I was thinking of a couple different options, I mean obviously I don’t know what will work out or not. I was thinking maybe craigslistings for temporary housing (renting), etc. I know there’s a lot considering a lot of snowbirds own homes down there and rent them out while they are still back at home.
I was thinking of looking on disboards (since they have a more active CP/Seasonal forum) maybe I’ll find someone other seasonals who are looking for people to room with while there. Or maybe I can get advice from former seasonal CM’s on how and where to stay. If I even get the position!
Lastly, I was thinking depending on how long I’m staying, I could just stay at somewhere like POP. I’m assuming seasonal CM also get the 50% off hotel room stays that all the FT and PT CM’s get. So I think for sometimes that could be a reasonable solution. I wonder if places like POP does any specials for long term stay? (like long then 2 weeks?)
Dixie, you stay at the resorts for a long length in time, do you happen to know if they offer anything along those lines?
