Check in procedure?

Just was wondering if someone could explain the details of check in for the college program and maybe give me some tips for the fall move in.
thanks to all who respond
Jim
p.s. i do have one specific question.... Can you pick how many people and where you live?

You can pick whatever roles you want to apply for. For example: when I applied for Fall 2006, I put down character performer, character attendant (my role for Fall Advantage 2006), and ops. For Spring 2005 I put down character attendant, operations, and merchandise (my role then). So it is all up to you what you pick. Good luck!

Check in takes place at Vista Way. You arrive there, and fill out paper work. You get your housing assigment, do a background check, get your photo ID (this is for housing) sign up for the Cast Member portal, get a sticker for your car (if you have one), and there is a housing welcome meeting that night as well.

Just wanted to add- you can request the number of roomates and bedrooms in the apartment, but there are no guarantees.

Honestly, it's whatever you make the program to be. People go down there and expect to party without realizing there is a job to do and you are expected to complete it. Every job has it's ups and downs. Sign up for areas you would like to do and try to keep a positive attitude.

i agree. if you love disney and are willing to work it's great (even in qsfb), you've just gotta have a good outlook on the program- also, have fun on your day off, don't just sleep the day away and when you get off of work, make friends with people, hang out, party, go shopping- the more you are willing to make it work (no matter what role) the more fun it'll be!

I'm going on my first CP in a week, but I've noticed that all of the negative things I've heard came from "people who knew someone who knew someone who had the worst experience ever." And then if I ask a little further, every time they've told me that the person didn't really like WDW before going or had never been. No one who actually has done a program that I have spoken to had an overall negative take on it. I'd rather listen to anyone who's done it.

I loved my CP. Then again, I got some pretty cool stuff: Haunted Mansion, then Entertainment. There are a few things I didn't like ie the housing and having to room with someone else.

I did my first CP in spring 2004, I did an AI in Fall 2005 and this summer I'll be doing a CP summer alum. I can't wait I check in on May 22.

I have a quick question for all or any Disney CP Alum. I was wondering, if you're under 21, do you need a parent/guardian to be with you when you check in to sign papers? I was planning on coming down with a friend who got in, so I was wondering if we’ll need to alter our planes slightly.

No, I don't think so. I was 19 last time when I checked, and I went around by myself. My dad was there, but just to help me move in (he stayed in the waiting area).

Nope. Because you are 18+, as required per the CP requirements, you are responsible for yourself so you do not need them there. However, they are welcome to stay and help you move in, ect. They just cannot stay in the complex past 1am

Good question, you beat me to it. I am doing the same thing. Me and a friend are traveling down and we are both only 20. Glad to see I won't have any problems. I leave in 8 days so i'm glad we don't have to change plans at all!
