Her name is Teresa. She was on the Spring Advantage 2005 with me, and then switched over to the DLC in June. She mostly worked at the MK DLC.

summer program 2006

hi all!
i was just browsing this board and i see these references to the "standard" and "typical" interview questions. what exactly are these questions?? (or is there another website i should be looking at to find them?) any help would be appreciated.
i am interested in applying for the newly formed summer program for this summer 2006. does anyone know anything about this program or have any experience with it? since it is so new i cannot find too much info about it, besides the basic stuff on the WDW site itself.
another question, i know that you probably are working a lot of hours there. do you ever get a few days off to possibly do side trips? i know it probably depends on how they schedule you, but would you ever get a chance to like fly out for a weekend or few days or anything like that?

thanks for any and all help!!

Costumed Character/Actor

Okay so I just really heard about the Disney College Program and most of the informational meetings have came and went. Do u absolutley have to attend one of the meetings in order to even apply for a costumed character and if anybody has worked in that part of the Disney program please e-mail me at eternalsunshine86@yahoo.com

Do you end up saving a lot of money, or is it more for the experience? Does the cost of living down there in their apartments keep up with your pay?

sugahappy: they are typical job interview questions. Just answer them to the best of your ability and you'll do fine. Never heard about the summer program, you'll prolly have to talk to your campus reps/recruiter. As for days off, you'll get two and then when the business picks up, you'll have one. You can always request days off but since you're at the bottom, you'll rarely get a requested day off. Better to have someone pick up or trade shifts. I never counted on a getting a day off when I needed it unless I had someone pick up.

Sawyer 86: You can watch the presentation online and do a phone interview, but you must attend a character audition in order to be considered for entertainment (unless you want to be a character greeter). I'm in entertainment, so you can send me a PM if you want to talk about it.

jennaissill: You're guaranteed 30 hours so you can at least pay rent and have some spending money. How much you work depends on how much you want to pick up shifts or extend while in your role. Keep in mind, you can save a lot of money, but you won't be eating out, going to local attractions, buying stuff to take home, etc. It all depends on how you normally spend/save your money.

Are you considering doing the CP in the Fall? That is program that the presentations are for right now. I did the online presentation, and my audition is next Thursday. So, I hope you decide to go for it.

I think I may do the Fall Advantage in 2007 so that way I am down there for my 21st birthday. Do the character auditions ever come to Minnesota?

That's good. I hope to be in Disney for my 21st birthday (which just happens to be in July). As for the auditions, they change location every CP (for example: for Spring 2006, the one closest to me was in Conn. For Fall 2006, now it is in Boston). So good luck.

Just wanted to add something. You mentioned that most of the presentations are gone. There is an online presentation at www.wdwcollegeprogram.com. It is very handy. I did it myself. That is because my school's presentations are after the audition. So that is something to consider.

I went to talk to my school's Off Campus Program Office because I have to have the approveful of the school before I can go. They told me that I can't go until Spring 2007. This made me really sad! Has anyone else had problems like this with their schoo?

The summer program is an Alumni - Only program. This means you must have previously completed the Disney College Program to participate in the Summer program. It's setup for those who want to return to Disney - yet not go through the full program due to school, ect. The reason it is not offered to first timers is that it is such a short time period there, that you would not get the full "College program" experiance just in the short 2-3 months.
