Thanks so much for any info you can provide. Also, can he wait til he gets home for Thanksgiving before filling out the roommate matcher form, or is this something he should do immediately?

Again, TIA!
If you go to wdwcollegeprogram.com you will be able to look around a bit. There is a family member section as well as a student section. There are lockers in the apartment, he would just need a combination lock. The roommate matching form doesn't have to be filled out, but he can wait to do that if he wants to.

Some more questions from a mom

I also posted this on the regular college board because I think some of the questions can be addressed to the students and some to the parents, so thanks again for any info!
My son's check in date is 1/10/11. Where is check in? Is it the same place for everyone? Where is Traditions held?
Where will his training be for Bell Services/Dispatch? Will he need his car to get to and from training or is it mandatory to take their transportation for the training days?

He's bringing his car, we are driving two cars down to get him settled. I was thinking of renting the second car instead of taking ours to drive down and move him in, and then return the rental in florida so my husband and I can fly home at the end of our stay (we will be there for a few days). How much will he need to use a car in the first week that he's there? Is there a lot of running around to be done, besides the supermarket or to buy shoes?

Just trying to get a feel for that first week. I know we won't see him much, and my husband and I do plan to have a couple of days in the parks for ourselves, but I also plan to be "on call" if he needs us to run errands with him, or for him while he's doing his training.

Anything thing you guys can share with this mom to help me from a parents point of view, to prepare for the first few "settle in" days?

TIA!

Check-in is at Vista Way, and yes, it is the same for everyone.

Traditions is at Disney University.

Training will either be just at his resort, or at Disney University and his resort. You don't have to take the transportation offered, but if you don't know the way, it might be safer to take it, so you don't get lost the first day.

My roommates and I only needed to go out to get stuff the first two days, and it was just going to Target for groceries and anything the apartment needed. After training starts (or sometimes at Casting the first day, depending on your role) you'll find out what type of shoes you need, but you have plenty of time to get them.

Does anyone know if it's problem to mail a box down a few days before my dd arrives? Will they hold it for her? Thanks

No they won't hold anything so sending stuff down early isn't possible

you have to have professional wear for Traditions and Discovery Day (or whatever the park orientation day is called. Epcot is Discovery Day). I started training right after that, so I only needed two professional outfits. I'm not taking classes here however.

She will be issued a costume for work - everything but the underwear, socks and shoes (shoes and socks will have to be a certain color). For other work events there is a "Disney Look" that needs to be maintained...its basically nice clothes (somewhat nicer than business casual) and will be explained in detail.

There are black outs. They are available on the HUB and are released a couple months at a time

DS is going down in January and I have a question about banking. How can I set up a bank account for him down there with an atm card and deposit money into his account up here in NJ? He has an account at a local bank that his Disney Store paycheck is being direct deposited into but there are no branches of this bank in Florida.

Can't her just use a bank/check card if the branch is in your hometown? Also it is possible to deposit money into his Disneys Partners bank account through Western Union. But that's a whole other story.
