This question may have already been asked...

I am interested in the CP, but I know I will want to do it more than once. Are you allowed to go through the program more than worse? Or is there a different program?

Yes, you are allowed to do multiple college programs. You just won't graduate as quickly.

Amen to that! I did my first CP in 2005 and now I applied for Fall 2006. This is going to set me back (I may have to take an additional semester or 2), but I don't care. This is what I want to do, so I am doing it.

I want to do the CP in Spring 2007 which is my sophmore year, but I also plan on transferring to a different college for my junior year, so I was wondering if anyone knew if this would cause any problems for me. Since I plan on attending one college when I go on the program and going to a different one when I return.

I just sent in my online application. I am going to set up my phone interview tonight. I had a couple more questions though. Is there any disadvantage to doing a phone interview? Also, I have problems with extreme humidity. Heat I can usually handle. This is because of a medical condition I have. Will Disney take this into consideration when placing me if I am accepted? Also, for the people that have been there, do you think that the heat and humidity is bad in the summer? I really want to do one of the Advantage Programs, but I don't know if I would make it.

I don't feel that there is a real "disadvantage" to doing the online presentation. I did the online presentation for Fall 2006 and it was pretty much the same info as given at the live presentation (I did the CP Spring 2005). I believe that Disney should be able to accomadate the issue with heat. Just make sure to tell your interviewer. Good luck!

About how many people participate in the college program at once? ...just to get an idea of how many people you live around and can socialize with.

I believe there can be around 5,000 CPs at a time (though I could be wrong).

Hiya!

If you are at uni and inbetween academic years you can apply for the WDW International Program. It runs for 3 months over the summer.

If you aren't a student, you can also apply for the year long WDW International College Program, as a Cultural Representative in the UK pavilion in Epcot.

Check out these websites for more info:

Official WDW International Recruitment Website

WDWIP.com - WDW International Programs Discussion Boards

If you have any more question, feel free to PM me. I did the program in 2003 - 2004.

Well, it couldn't hurt. I went to the presentation (and did the CP) after 1 semester at school. Just as long as you do well in school and be yourself at the presentation, you have a very good chance at getting in.

she can attend the presentation, but won't get accepted until after the first semester. However, I did get accepted a year in advance of my program, so you can get accepted early, just not actually be in the program.
