I am so excited! My DD (19) got into the college program. She checks in on May 20th leaves on Jan 3. We have so much to do to get ready... only month away!

I see more trips to WDW in my very near future!

DD wears a medical necklace will there be a phone number available there for her to add to it? We have seen the medical accommodation form but that really doesn't cover her needs if she has an asthma attack, she just needs a contact really.

I'm not sure what you mean by phone number? If you mean as an emergency contact Disney will be no help. It should be you. She will have a phone in her apartment but the chances if her roommates being there to pick it up are slim.

Also I will say that if she is at work at one of the parks and has a severe attack the EMS team can be there within 1-2 minutes. Response time to resorts is a little more.

Thanks, I'm in the UK so it would be difficult, she doesn't have them often at all so hopefully all will be okay

I'd honestly just recommend your mobile, as any EMT/Paramedics/First Responders will check her medical tag before anything else.

In my case it's iffy since my parents turn off their phones at night, but if there's that possible concern leave your phone as the primary contact in all situations, and on her medical tag. Just plan on leaving it on 24/7, as that's what I would do in any circumstance.

By the way, thanks for reminding me as I still need to order mine too.

If you're arriving Sunday, I'd recommend at least Sunday/Monday. Just realize she'll be busy with check-in, unpacking, and casting which will leave little time if you're planning on helping her out. With the new check-in system though, things should run quicker but begins later at 9am. Depending on what time you're leaving, Tuesday might be possible too. It just depends on what you're up for personally, as she won't have park access until Wednesday at the earliest.

Thanks, and Have a Magical Day!

My Daughter got her Arrival date as May 20th and the email to complete the preboard documents which are all done.

Now the Dashboard has a link in the communications titled WDWCP Food Service QSR H/H which says: The job posting you are looking for has expired or the position has already been filled. If you are interested in one of our other opportunities, please visit our career site.

Is this normal after you are locked in or should she call and checkup on this?

Also - I'm driving her down in two weeks. If I could bring her single twin matress in my truck would you recommend it? I've heard the matresses are pretty hard and I do have room to bring it.

Never seen the communication. Unless she ha the application saved in her dashboard.

On the bringing your own mattress I would call housing and ask if that is allowed. I think I recall that we weren't allowed to bring our own furniture but I'm not sure if a mattress would count. Also the storage for the CP housing mattress would be unfair to the other roommates because it would take a lot of room out of the closet.

I would have her call and check that out...something doesn't sound quite right with that communication...

And regarding the mattress, you need to leave it at home. Your bettter bet is to invest in a good quality mattress topper. Your not allowed to bring your own and honestly there is no guarantee that she will stay in the same unit with the same girls for her entire program. And if she has to move, it's not always with a lot of notice! So that would be my suggestion...a quality mattress topper. Kohl's sells some for a reasonable price on sale and then use the bonus 30% off. I got a NICE twin sized one for about $30.

Thanks all - we'll check on a good matress topper then.

Are the offices open on the weekend to check on the message or will she have to wait until Monday morning?

Not sure how to feel...

Well... after all the excitement of planning for the CP, doing the interviews, going to WDW to audition for a character/mover role (first cut based on height, and she is 5'6"), accepting a role in attractions, "meeting" potential roommates online, starting to make plans and schedules, etc., it looks like DD might not be doing the CP after all. Many things come into play, but the big ones are (a) her inability to fit regular dance classes into the work schedule, (b) some really excellent classes her major and minor are offering on a trial/one-time basis during fall semester, and (c) failing health of a beloved grandparent. We talked about it all last night, and she keeps coming back to reasoning that the original idea was to audition to DANCE at Disney, not just take off a semester to work at WDW. I know that I'll be supportive of her final decision, because it's her life, but I admit to feeling a little sad around the edges, that DD might not be doing the CP next fall! She is still weighing all the options, but really... Do I have the only kid in the world who'd choose to stay in school rather than work at Disney World??
