Very excited to be taking my DD to check in on June 11th. Are there any family type gatherings planned. Right now just her roommates and moms are getting together for dinner.

There were no family events planned when I brought my daughter in January. When you first drop your daughter off that morning... she checks in by herself. There is an area for parents to hang out, they give you info on the Disney College program and there is coffee and cookies. They also offer apartment tours, will answer any questions you have, and DVC is also there giving presentations.

Good luck!

CP Parents Benefits?

Hey you CP experts: Do you know if the parents of CP's get a discount on Disney Cruises?

Your son/daughter gets a discount, so if you join them on a cruise then it would help benefit you. There are no discounts solely by "relation" except for spouses/partners (which only apply to PT and FT CMs).

Except I'm pretty sure the only discounts are for "space available" cruises, which are released a few weeks out, so you have to be flexible with when you can go.

Good Place to Stay

Hard to believe that my DS has been done with his CP for a year now! We found that the Buena Vista Suites was a good place to stay and close to their complexes. (We rented a car and it was easy to get around the area.) They have suites that include a two bed sleeping area, a bathroom, and a sitting area with pull-out couch, fridge, microwave. Free breakfast every morning that included hot foods(some of which were made-to-order) and lots of selections for everyone. I believe we paid about $79 a night. They have a website that has specials on Wednesdays and Thursdays(they are the sister resort of Caribe Royale) so definitely check it out!
On a side note, my DS loved his program! And the Disney Happy Ending is that he met his fiancee while there and they will be getting married July 2013! Dreams do come true!!

getting excited/nervous the closer my dd check date gets.
I have another question that probally has been answered before(sorry). On check in day, we know the cp goes their way to check in but is there anytime during that 1st day to run to store with cp or is it once they check in they are busy rest of day? BTW she is lifeguard and we know she takes her test that day , but she has heard on some FB sites that some cp ar esitting around after checkin for a couple days.

This is one of the things I found interesting and frustrating... considering it's 'Disney' - you aren't given much information until check in day about anything! If it wasn't for these boards... we would have been going more crazy than we were that day!

For my daughter - she checked in, I waited for about an hour and a half for her, and then we went to her apartment to drop everything off. She only had a window of about an hour or so before she had to head to get a bus to go to a meeting. Some of her roommates had the same meeting, another had one later that day. While she went to that meeting - I finished setting up her room and then headed to Target. I bought some of the stuff she was missing, which fortunately wasn't much, and pretty much bought food and supplies... again... mostly food and snacks! We did go shopping again for some small things the following day.

When she got back to the apartment, probably 2 -3 hours later, with her roomies after their meetings, finger printing, etc... we finished setting up and went to dinner with some of the room mates and their parents... that was about 6:00pm. It was a LONG day!

The next few days, each of her room mates had different schedules... some of them started right away - others had a day off before they started. That was the frustrating part... it was hard to plan beforehand. It all worked out... she's got a few months to go... and unfortunately - she can't wait til it's over. (She's in Quick Service Food and Beverage)

CP for students with Master's degree

When a college student has completed her master's degree, and graduated, is she still able to do the college program, or is it just too late?
I tried looking at the career info about internships, etc, but was unsuccessful in finding anything. I think I have found info before, so may not have been looking in the right place.
I would appreciate any assistance.
Thanks in advance.

CP Park Tickets for Guests

My DD will begin her Internship on August 8th. My DH and I will be coming to visit her during Christmas. Does anyone know if the interns can still get guests into the parks during the blackout dates for the parks?

If her main gate is black out then sadly, no. You would be more then welcome to go to the park but you would need to purchase park tickets :-) I don't know if she would be able to get you a discount on purchasing them or not... I did my program in 2009 and can't quite remember. But Holiday time!!!... so exciting :-) Good luck to your daughter!
