Definately had fun.

Would go back, and already have gone back ( did the CP twice ).

It didn't mess up the magic. It made me learn more about the parks, and yes, I know what it looks like "downstairs" - but I kinda laugh at that thinking "below me now is...... "

I cooked food.

I just really like the idea of working at WDW, but I don't wanna get my hopes up if I think I would be uncomfortable...Oh..another question that I just thought of, if you take classes, do you get credit for them? Thanks
Only one for the month. It's your choice if you wash it. I generally washed my one costume once a week. I just sprayed it with Febreeze the rest of the days. :lol

kidding aside, yes. You can take out up to 5 costumes. You don't have to wash them yourself - you can just turn them in for a fresh set. Or if you find a set that you want to keep throughout your CP, you can wash them yourself. It doesn't matter.

You can get credit - but that is up to your college.

I did operations, and I worked at Pleasure Island Admissions, Disney Quest Admissions and Cirque Ushers and Tickets.

Okay...so it would be really helpful if everyone who has done the CP to post their role(operations, merchandise, etc) and a detailed description of a day at work. (what you had to do, how long, etc) Thanks everyone! Oh, I was just thinking about the parades, so I have another question Who sets up for the parades?

i concur

This is a good idea. I was just about to ask if anyone has done custodial before or known anyone who has done custodial, and if they enjoyed it and any other juicy information!

I did the CP spring 2005. I worked in merchandise in Fantasyland. I always closed, so I would come in around 4-6 pm and leave by 12-1 am. I would usually work the registers, though sometimes I would stock the stores as well. Usually I worked about 8 hours a day (though longer for summer/busy times). As for parades, they are done by operations people. I would pick up a lot of parade control shifts (and they are the best). If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask. My aim is joanna71985.

My son is in custodial right now. He is on in the MK on Main Street. So its a tough job. He works very long hours (71 for the last two weeks in a row) and always the closing shifts, sometimes until 4am. There is a lot of heavy lifting, cleaning up puke, poop and the likes... So if you don't like hard work, I'd stay away from custodial. It bugs me that they don't get paid extra for that role. But thats the way it is, I guess.

wow

wow! 71 hours a week is a LOT. is he signing up for overtime hours or are they just assigned to him and required? does anyone know if workers are guaranteed at least one day a week off (even during the busy seasons) or they might be working 7 days a week? thanks.

Hey guys. I have a thread on this question, but it may be better to ask here. Would you happen to know when and where auditions for the Disney Collegiate All-Star Band usually are? (I couldn't find an audition schedule for the band, if there is one) Same question about the Disneyland Band?

Has anyone dealt with dreadlocks and getting accepted? I'm guessing it falls under this?
