My daughter interviewed a week ago Friday, and got her invitation today! She is QSFB, and super excited! She is going to be a Fall Advantage start.

She already lives in an Orlando apartment as a student at UCF, so moving her shouldn't be too much trouble. Our biggest problem is going to be storing all of her stuff! Her apartment now is pretty big (3 BR/3 BA), and they have a ton of stuff in the kitchen. We'll be filling up a garage or two, I think :-)

She'd love to hear other experiences, and can be found on FB as Brighid Lora.

Sounds like just more reason for us to visit WDW!

If she already lives in Central Florida and is a UCF student, Program Operations may be amenable to allowing her to refrain from moving into Company Housing and just commute to work on a normal basis. She would continue to be eligible for the other "benefits" of the program (classes, etc.), but wouldn't have up to go through the hassle of moving.

You would just need to contact them and ask.

Yup, that is the Spring Group! I actually created it after the creator of the original group left so we could have a group we could change! haha

Looking for advice.....

Hi all! I am so glad I found you! My son just got his email for the fall. This is a dream come true for him. He starts 8/23 and will be doing something at the park entrances. Anyway we will be heading down for a scouting trip June 6. Don't think we'll be able to find any details out obviously but kinda want to drive around etc. We are DVC members and still have points to use.

Got any advice for us rookies?

PS - anybody on FB?

We were down there in between the time my daughter was accepted and the time she checked in on a trip and we took time to drive over to the different apt complexes. You can't get in but you can see enough from the outside to get an idea of where you might want to live and also see what is availble in the neighborhood.

We also talked to alot of the CMs with colleges on their nametags as we were buying things and standing in line.

He's Main Entrance Operations? I would ask the people working the turnstiles, the parking lot people, etc, what they think of their role. They're probably what he's doing. And yes, always talk to current College Programmers.

And if he wants to get in touch with people he'll be meeting while down there, here is the fall group.

Thank you

ZerotoHero - I will be honest we haven't really talked about what the email said. I'm waiting for him to come home from school. He's at school right now in Boston and will be coming home to Oxford at Easter. I've visited the websit etc., but I am finding more answers here - especially from people like you who have provided this thread with so much information.

I joined the Fall group on FB so look for me.......I think you will be able to find me..........also a DIS unplugged fan etc.

Again please keep the posts coming - I usually don't post much, I am a stalker and find myself reading more than posting.

He will be graduating from AI - The New England Institute of Art - graphic design. The school is on RT 9 in Brooklyn just down the street from Fenway. His dorm is up on Comm. Ave.

Ohh, okay. I know people at New England School of Art & Design, but not Institute of Art.

Not as small of a world as I thought it was.

Wow, I didn't know this! I've been thinking about adding a VERY small contract onto our membership but now I'll wait till DD starts the CP. Tell me, is this discount available to just the Internship Participants or to all in the College Program? <fingers crossed>

Those are one and the same. The Internship Participants also could include Career Start and the International Programmers.
