Question regarding classes offered

This question is for those parents who have had a kiddo who has participated in either the College Program or the Professional Internship program.

Disney offers classes for the participants of the CP/PI programs. When do they get opportunity to sign up for those classes?

DS will be doing a PI from Jan - June but is unsure if he will have opportunity to participate in classes b/c his work hours will be 8-5 M-F.

Any insight would be great.

Unfortunately, the classes are only for people participating in the college program. Pi's can't sign up. However, if he was doing the cp, he would sign up sometime in the two weeks following check-in.

This is no longer correct. They are doing registration online now and CP's can register before they even arrive.

Spring 2012

Are there any parents with kids starting the program in January 2012. I'm all caught up on the posts. My DD starts in January. She is very excited. I am thrilled for her too but obviously worried too. Anyone else in the same situation?

Our daughter checks in on Jan. 9th. We are arriving on the 6th and staying through the 11th. Well I am going back with her two brothers on the 10th but my husband is staying one extra day in case she needs help going out to buy stuff for the apt. Yes we are very happy for her, but YES we will worry about her too. I still worry about her when she is at college. I think it is normal for parents to worry about their kids no matter what their age. She is 21 now so she is not going down as a 18 or 19 year old, but we will still worry. Our daughter will also have her car down there, which will be good and bad. I will be glad she can easily get to the stores and all, but I will worry about her driving in an unfamiliar area. Even though she has been to Disney 18 times....none of us really know our way around, outside of the magic. LOL When does your daughter arrive?

My daughter is checking in on the 18th. We are flying down on the 17th and I'm leaving on the 21st.

She's only a Freshman in college so this is like starting all over again with the worry of roommates, what she needs to bring, etc. She's excited and so am I... probably a little more than her... or maybe it's jealousy! I do wish there was a meal plan or something though. I read how these kids lose so much weight but my daughter can't afford to lose any! I'll just pray for the best!

No matter where my kids are... I worry. I just hope she has a great experience and is happy. I wish that for all these kids! Be well and happy holidays!

My DD arrives on the 25th, I'm flying down with her to help her get settled in. She 18. She will not be taking her car. Her Roomates are older and 2 of them have a car. I know it will be a great experience for her and I know she will do great, but as a Mom I worry about everything! Thanks for the responses. Im glad I'm not alone.

Same for my daughter--date and job....except she got her acceptance during finals week so we haven't started lists yet. We have to go to her university next week and get everything squared away.

I have so many questions and not sure where to start.

Guess I need to start trying to find hotel ressies for check in.

Lists? Supplies?

So as the mom, I'm the planner... my daughter, doing the CP - she's the dreamer. I love Disney and like to dream too but I'm kind of hoping for some help here on what to bring.

I'm sure it's on her dashboard, etc but she's been having trouble with that and she's been working since she's finished school to have some extra $$ for Disney.

We are flying down but I was thinking since I'm staying at Disney resort I can ship some stuff there if I need to.

So - can she bring her same sheets she used in her dorm at college? Is there a coffee maker? Should she bring a modem? Router?

Any CP'ers out there that remember those 1 or 2 things they wish they had with them when they first got there? I just don't want to go crazy buying things at Walmart that I could have brought with us.

Anyone?

Thanks!

Go to Centura Care

Register at Centura Care, it's a non-Disney health clinic / urgent care. They cater to CPers (they will pick up a CPer). My S completed the program last year (Sp 2011).
Unfortunately, tourist do go to WDW sick since they've paid for non-refundable plane tickets, etc. CPer get sick and it's no fund figuring out how to pay for a $150 strep test when you're on min wage.

I got the call at 2pm in theafternoon and had to provide payment info over the phone (you can set that up there).

If your kid is in Comm College & living at home, this is above and beyond a great exp,
