Drug Testing

Hey everyone!

Great forum you guys have here. Great community with a lot of advice and support. Anyway, I was recently accepted into the Spring 2013 Disney College Program term with the job of Bell Services. My question is this, after I pay my program fees, is there an initial drug test? Or do they only test on the job if there is suspicion?

Thank You

When I did the program in 2010, there was no drug test.

My son is currently on the CP as a lifegaurd. He was drug tested day one right after he left casting. His roommate who is working in transportation was also selected for drug testing. Not sure how or why they were chosen, there were other roles being tested too.

I have no real answer, but judging by whats been said it seems that if your role has a direct involvement with customer safety you're more likely to be tested.

If you drive vehicles they'll drug test you. Or lifeguards. I don't know if they count the bell hop pargos as vehicles or not.

They do random drug testing. No drugs . . . No worry.

If it's prescription drugs, let them know in advance and they'll add it to your file. CP's have been sent home for drugs and/or alcohol violations.

Good Luck and Enjoy your time as a CP!

I did 3 programs and was never tested. My friend, however, texted me the other day that security stormed into their break room the other day and tested every person in there (all in attractions, but a shared break room).

Unrelated note.. Since you'll work in resorts, you don't normally go through bag check at work like you would at the parks, but they do check randomly when you're clocking out. I saw many CPs get termed on the spot for stealing toilet paper from work Don't pull anything stupid

Security doesn't do drug tests. Drug tests are done by leadership in the department. Usually by calling the people in, and then they're taken to CentraCare, on the clock. And then returned to work. I've never heard of security being involved unless somebody's being terminated.

This is all great information. The role I was offered was Bell Services Dispatch/Greeter. Can anyone tell me if that role requires a drug test? And if so, is the drug test required after submitting the program fees?

Thank You

I haven't been drug tested at Aulani and in all honesty if you're not doing anything you really shouldn't worry about being tested.

Did a CP and PI, nothing involving guest safety (i.e. driving a tram, etc) and no drug tests.

Just don't do drugs, and then you won't need to worry about whether or not they do drug testing.
