I was Spring of 2001....Main Street USA, Emporium/Disney Clothiers/Main Street Athletic Club....stayed through the summer working Fastpass and the Jungle Cruise.

I worked BTMRR all the time when I was a FastPass CM....maybe we've met!

I don't know of any way to for sure make it happen, just let the recruiter know it would be your dream job! I was on Main Street on my CP..moved to Jungle afterwards!

I sure did!

Join the club, I went to two seminars...I drove 3 hours to go to an interview because I couldn't make the one at my campus! I'm CRAZY about WDW! I miss it.

I worked in Merch at the GF during Spring Advantage 02, and I was an advanced inntern in the CDS office at MGM in Spring of 03.

The 1st time wasn't the greatest, but the 2nd time was a blast

i guess i am an oldie.....

fall 96.....hollywood and vine cafeteria (it wasn't a character meal back then)

a current coworker now (at my real job!) was also on the program, but even older.....back in 1986 or so (probably when some of you were born!), but he was a jungle cruise skipper back then....

Hey guys!
I am so very interested in doing the internship program, but the only thing that is holding me back is the 6 months I would take away from school. Are there any loop-holes or other shorter options? The reason why I want to do the internship is because my dream career would be some sort of special event manager for Disney! Could there possibly be any other options available? Also, is it ideal to do the internship at Disney if you want to have any sort of chance to have a career there?

Thank you!
