hmm.. I was kind of wondering about Gasman61's question too.
Instead of PMing can you possibly share the info?

Thanks!

Should I plan to fly home Report Day or the day afterward?

Thanks.

My DD started in the program last Aug. she was in photopass then she extended to Character attendant. She is having a great time. We took her car down and I flew back to NY. The first day I dropped her off and shopped in the area. I was able to meet up with her and get her settled in her apartment. Most but not all have the next day off. I enjoyed meeting her roommates and there families. I would stay and fly home later the day after check in. I fly down May 8th and she is done with the program on the 10th and we will head back to NY. I know the apartment that she was in was not CLEAN. We thought we took everything she needed but we we got there we made a few shopping trips. Dollar stores are a nice place to start.

Congratulations for your daughter (and you)! I know how excited I was when my daughter was accepted for the Spring program. What area will she be in? My daughter is in attractions - Kilimanjaro Safari - and loves it. She recently got accepted to extend until Aug. 2nd.

Thanks!! She will also be doing attractions, but she doesn't know where yet....

My friend was in the program a few years ago and he was on KS and he really loved it too! He actually stayed on as a seasonal there for awhile after that.

My S22 did the program Spring 2011:
When your off-spring checks in, parents can sit around and sip coffee, eat cookies, and talk with some experienced CPs. I would advise you to get their key and move them in. They will be busy. Later in the day, it will be a dash to Walmart. The sooner it's done, the sooner all of you can relax.

Hi karen,

I thought I answered. I would fly home the next day. Check-in day was super busy. We dropped my dd off actually at 3 am and went back to the resort. There were at least 50 people already in line. We went back at 7 am and stayed at the parent's welcome center. When dd was done - it was moving in time and then like pp poster - trip to Walmart for shopping and back to the apartment. We stayed a few days and glad we did since she had two days off (well a quick 1 hour housing meeting the next day) after that. Then Traditions, off two days again. I would definitely leave at least the next day.

Is there an ATM close to where the ICP cast members are staying and if so how much is it to use? I really don't want DD taking a lot of cash for day to day expenses and would rather she withdrew smaller amounts more often. I did read somewhere that chase are charging $5 per use which is scary if she's only withdrawing $40

There should be an ATM at each housing complex

I don't know (as I used the Disney bank, which is the ATM there). However, if I had to guess, I would say most likely
