If I got MK I would like to work park operations there. Work in the ticketing booths and park cars. But as far as where I want to work! Hollywood Studios for sure!

Park Preference

Just curious, if anyone wants to work in a park, which one do you want to work in? I think MK would be nice, but I know you would be working basically all day and night. I think Epcot would be really nice, plus it's my favorite park But I don't think I would mind working in AK.

I worked at Studios and absolutely loved it but if I get accepted this time, I hope I get either Epcot or Magic Kingdom.

Hey all, I'm Brandon!
I'm hoping to apply for the spring adv program! I haven't really thought about what I'd like to do... I think I want to work in the parks, can we work in gift shops? I've worked at old navy for about six months now and I love retail and customer service! I'm graduating high school in the next month or so (one of the joys of home schooling ) and am going to take a college class in the summer so I can come down for the first cp I'm old enough to take! I'm so excited!!

Hey y'all, I'm Emmy Kate
I'm going to be applying to Spring 2013 advantage too I'll be a sophomore then, and it'll be my first experience in the DCP.

When will they start accepting applications? I'm so nervous I just want to get my application in so I can stop worrying about it.

The list of roles I'm looking at is longer than my arm, but merch and attractions are pretty high on the list.

If I get in, I can't wait to meet all of you in person! Fellow Dis-ers unite!

Hey! I have decided to try to go back to WDW in Fall 2013! I have done a cp in fall 2011 and absolutely loved it! Also, my family has never been to WDW and I think this will be a good chance for them to come because of the discounts. And I think my friend who has done the cp before might do it to

It's called Resort Bus Greeter, it may be under transportation when you apply, but I worked 6-2pm every day and always got my 2 days off a week. It was super fun and you can pick up shifts at other resorts if you want!! I can't think of any others right now that would be "early" mornings...Maybe BBB, since I don't see how children would want a fairy makeover at 9pm? Hope that helps you
Thanks for the suggestions. Don't you have to be trained in CPR or something to be a lifeguard? But anyway it wouldn't be the best fit for me because I have very fair skin. DX I will probably just suck it up and work another role lol!

And I think I'd most like working in Magic Kingdom because it's my favorite, or in Animal Kingdom since it closes at 7 LOL. Or even Epcot. Heck, I don't know!

Hey guys! My name is Lauren and I did the Fall 2010 College Program in Attractions at The Great Movie Ride, and will be applying to go back for Spring/Spring Advantage 2013! I am a current Campus Rep for my college. My top three roles are Vacation Planner, Attractions and Merchandise! I will be graduating in December, so I hope this will lead me into a Professional Internship in communications!

I saw this on the list of options, what exactly does the job entail? I might be really interested, but I wanted to know more about it.

It's a ticket sales position! A Vacation Planner is the person at the booths at the park entrances selling park tickets and media. You have monthly/weekly goals you have to meet for sales, but I've heard from friends who are VP's now that they are not difficult to reach!
