I think I'm gonna go for it!

I've been reading all the posts on this thread and am still a little confused as to how the housing works. Is there a section on the application where you can list your preferences?? What's the difference between the number of bedrooms?? Thanks!!!

They ask you your preferences when you get down there. It won't help with the complex (that depends on which one they are filling first) but it will help with the number of roommates you get. There are: 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, 3 bedroom, and 4 bedroom.

Is there like a website or something to see pictures of the apartments the CPs get to live in?? I've heard a little bit here and there about them but haven't really gotten a good idea of what they are like.

I'm gonna be there January 25th to August 11th

Another Question
I know on the website they said "natural looking makeup" I'm trying to get an idea of how this looks so does anyone have any "Disney Look" pictures so I can see the make up? And I know they are really strict on hair and piercings but is there any leverage with makeup? I know not to go extreme and stuff.

i don't much wear makeup, so i dont think it's too much of an issue for me. But I'm going to say light brown eyeshaddow, pink blush, and a light pink, peach, or nude lipstick along with your natural shade of foundation.

I honestly can't say I've heard of anyone being asked to tone down their makeup as any sort of Disney Look violation. You will get a handbook and pictures when you arrive, but they really aren't all that strict. Stay away from anything too dark or too bright, and don't wear glitter. You should probably not wear fake eye lashes or stuff like that either. As long as you look normal, and people don't stare at you when you walk down the street where you live now, you should be okay.

I don't know for sure, but I've been told that Australia is not included in the International College Program. I know we were supposed to get a whole boat load of Australian ICPs, but there was some issue with the visas and they couldn't come. The recruiters scurried to fill the spots and we got a whole bunch of Brazilian and Peruvian CPs instead.

You should be able to find the information on wdwcollegeprogram.com

good luck?

Okay, so I am a total home-body and going from Cali to FL scares the crap out of me. I told my boyfriend all about the program and he got excited to go too. We see eachother all of the time. I have a few general questions for you alumni.

1. I read there is a way you can be in the same apartment as someone of the opposite sex, but not share a room. Is this true? How hard is it to really be in the same apartment with someone of the opposite sex? It wouldn't be the end of the world, but we'd really want to be in the same complex. Standing in line is the best way to get in the same building?

2. Are there adults around watching everything or is everyone on their own for the most part? Like there aren't any RAs are there? It doesn't sound like it.

3. Do you get a few days off here and there where you can enjoy Disney World for yourself?

4. I know on the website it says no overnight guests, but if you live in the same complex is that a big deal at all?

Thank you so much for answering my questions!

There's no way you could live in the same apartment as someone of the opposite sex. They've recently made it even harder for married couples to live together. Its kind of just luck about buildings, but its better to be in line together. You can be right next door to him, but you won't be in the same apartment as him. Getting in the same complex is easy. If you're in the same complex, they can't tell you where to sleep, unless your roommates throw a fit.

There are no RAs, and no adults watch what your doing...but if you are in a complex you shouldn't be in, if you're drinking when you are underage, anything like that...security watches. You will get terminated if you get caught, but there isn't someone in charge of watching each building or anything like that. Its pretty much only noticeable when you're noisey or annoying.

It a pretty adult area. They know that college kids will act crazy, but they pretty much let you take care of yourself.
