Thanks a lot! Have a magical day!

Hey, Kaitlin. I can't speak for the regular college program but I just got a position at Animal Kingdom as an Education Presenter. Basically, I get to play games with kids and teach them about conservation. You may want to look into that or something at the Disney Learning Center. I think they have professional internships in their youth programs area. If you go on the Disney Careers webpage you can search for internships like that. Make sure you check which ones require you to be a CP alum.

Talking Am I crazy?

I came down for the College program in January and when it got to the point when i could choose to extend, i did. For a whole year. People keep telling me that I am crazy so let me know am I?

Amanda,
Thanks for the info about the Education programs. That's interesting. I will look into that for sure! I am just wanting to make sure that if I do the WDWCP, I will be able to Learn, Earn, and not fall behind in school.

Also to anyone with CP experience, I was wondering if they ever place CPers in locations such as the Neverland Club for the duration of the program? I think that would be a perfect fit with my goals!
Thanks again,
Kaitlin

No of course not! I would extend in a heartbeat, if I was allowed to by my school. So the next best thing is returning back for the alumni program next summer.

I was accepted as a merchandise Cast member I actually got my letter on Monday, so about a week ago. I got it exactly two weeks from my interview. I'm either checking in on the 21st or the 23rd, but I'm pretty sure it will be the 21st. I haven't quite decided. I'm so excited!

no one's crazy for wanting to stay longer! i've already thought that if i like my location as much as i do in 7 months, i'm gonna looking into transfering down to a college down here and going parttime (or full time)

I would transfer, but I only have 2 years left and I don't think I would be able to get everything to transfer. So I guess I will have to be content with the alumni summer program. BTW, I am also in entertainment and am loving it.

Phone Interview

I finally had my phone interview today. It went well! The lady was super sweet and we chatted a lot and talked about the program. She complimented me several times on my answers to the questions, and even my personalilty. I hope that these are good things! All she told me to do was send a signed copy of the role check list to the Disney address that she gave me and that I should hear from them in 2-3 weeks. I am SO nervous that I wont get in! But thanks so much for all the responses to my questions!

ok so someone please help me with this whole discount thing. i'm currently a college program cast member at mgm and i'm having issues with the disney portal discount website. so i want to make reservations at a hotel for other guests (my parents and my sister and her husband) but the website only lets me click on "reservations for: myself" and not "reservations for: other guests"...i saw the "other guests" button one time, but then an hour later or so it disappeared and i haven't seen it since...so i'm just wondering how i can get the hotel discount, like is there a phone number or other website i can go to? thanks for any info you can share!
