Usually you are asked at check-in which apartment complex/size you want, and they do try to grant it. However, I know a few people who were automatically given a complex or an apartment size.

Roommate issues

My daughter has been in Orlando for three weeks now. We just got our first late night call from her -- she had serious issues with one of her roommates, serious enough that security was called and my daughter and one of her roommates are sleeping elsewhere tonight. I won't go into more detail on a public board, but I wondered what experience parents of CPers have had . . . or CPers themselves have had . . . in having the housing people step in to help resolve roommate issues. thanks.

My roommates had an issue like that (after I moved out of the housing a crazy girl replaced me). In this case the girl threatened another's life... she stayed one more night (because the incidint occured late at night) and then was out by 11 the next morning.

Does anyone know how the maingate pass works. Can you park hop? What if my son got us into a park on his maingate, but then had to leave to go to work a few hours later. I thought I had heard somewhere that you could get a pass when you left that park to go to another park.

We are going in 3 weeks and know that our son will be working while we are there, but have know idea how the maingate pass works. It will be me and my husband and our daughter.

Yes. The passes you get from the Maingate are park hoppers. So you can go to more then 1 park in a day.

More questions......

My DD will be doing the Fall 2009 program instead of Spring like she originally intended, so now I have more questions?

1) Do the CP students have to stay at their apartment the first two nights, or can they stay offsite?
2) Does anyone know what time traditions will start on the 3rd day, and where it will be held?
3) Unfortunately DD will be without a car while doing the program, so I was wondering if she will know what type/color shoes she will be required to purchase beforehand? If not- when does she find out?
4) Is the bus system safe- will there be lots of other students utilizing them?

DH or I would like to leave the second day of DD starting the program, but if she will not find out exactly what is needed until the second or third day we don't want to leave her stranded.

Thanks in advance.

Congrats to your DD!

1. She does not have to stay there but she will be charged rent. She may want to stay though. Those first few days are a good time to get to know the roommates.

2. I'm not sure about this one as I was back in Ohio already. I know it was in the morning and I'm thinking it was at Disney University.

3. Most roles require either black or white plain (no big colored logos) sneakers so if you get her one pair of each she'll probably be set. However if you know what role she will be in and can be more specific, some other folks may know about the exceptions.

4. The students are the only people who ride the Disney busses. They are very safe and the few times DD has called them they've been extremely helpful. Now, if she's venturing into other areas on the city bus (LYNX), of course everyone rides those. They are still quite safe though. DD uses them quite alot.

They are held at Vista and Chatham (and possibly Patterson- not sure).

Hopeful future CP Mom

I've been doing a lot of research on the CP. My daughter is going to apply in April for Fall '09. I have a question that I've never seen any info on. Approximately how many students apply to the CP and how many are offered roles? Thanks to everyone for the plethora of information!

it really varies. recent numbers have been 6500-7500ish applicants and 1700 rejections. these are not 100% accurate of course but have been recently recorded. might i ask why she is waiting so late to apply? i would sugguest applying as soon as possible.
