Unhappy Depressed DCP Alumni FA 2011

Hello DIS Boards!

I completed my DCP 10 months ago (still feels like yesterday) and I am STILL going through the Disney withdrawals! I had the most amazing experience in the WORLD! I find myself missing it every single day. I'm sure I'm not the only one! I'm just hoping to connect with some people who can feel my pain. I'd also be more than happy to answer any questions that any first timers may have! I know I had lotssssss of questions in the beginning and I was so thankful for all of the tips and advice I received!

I'm sorry you're feeling depressed! I have a quick question about discounts/getting time off. I know you have to be given access to The Hub but my question is about the DCL discounts. Right now me and my friend are supposed to be going on DCL March 10-14 and I was wondering how much of a discount I would get and how hard it is to get the time off.

As for the time off, it depends.....I worked at a resort, so I had a one on one relationship with all my managers. They go by how many other people in your work location requested off for the days that you requested. If for some reason you get them denied, go talk to your managers!! Most of them will be more than happy to help you if they can. You can also try to trade your shifts with other cast members. I never had a problem getting the days I needed off between all of those options. People will be happy to help you if you help them . As far as discounts for DCL, I'm actually not sure how much you get. I know they sometimes offer veryyy low priced cruises to CMs, but I'm pretty sure they are SUPER hard to book! Wish I knew more for you

Hope this helps!

Oh that must be sooooo hard! I'm so jealous of all the people preparing to check in, but still so happy for them because I know how much their lives are about to change! Hopefully I will be back too one day (sooner rather than later)!

I'm in the exact same boat. I wasn't able to make FA this year, but many other wonderfully interesting things have happened that wouldn't have otherwise.

My question is, what tips do you have for someone wanting to work Attractions or one of the more popular roles?

Also, what were your top three choices, and how did your interview influence these?

Thanks!

Have a Magical Day!

OHMYGOSH I MISS THE DCP SOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!

I talk about Disney EVERY.DAY. with my boyfriend.

My first DCP I went down by myself in the Fall of '09 and then in the Fall of '11 I went down with him We drove all the way from Minnesota to Florida and listened to tons of Disney songs as well as "The good life" by One Republic and wrote on the back of our car "We're MOVING to Disney World." It was amazing. We had SO much fun and both miss it and all of our friends terribly.

I'm also available to answer questions. Before both of my programs I basically lived on Disboards.

If we were allowed to go down and to the cp more than twice...we would.
