i think even if you are making it for other guests you still click "yourself". i know what you are talking about, how they used to have the other guests button but now its gone. when it was still there there was something you could click on that explained the difference between the two choices. it made it sound like the "other guests" choice was for when you werent even like at WDW. but since you will be here you can click "yourself" because technically you are supposed to be with them there at check in in order for them to get the discount. plus you can always say you are actually going to stay in the room, then it is for yourself. it doesn't have to necessarily mean yourself, by yourself.

but i could have very much so misinterpreted this!!! i dont know??

how do you like the studios? where are you working?

The one i found to be the cheapest is the holiday inn sunspree resort and my advisor tells me its right across the street from the check in point at vista. being this close i wont have to call a cab to get there which save some money as well.
also, if u book this hotel and are flying inn they will shuttle you from the airport if u ask them to.

Was curious if anyone has a estimation of when the '07 summer CP applications will be becoming available and if selected, the approximate starting date for the program is?

Thanks Everyone In Advance!

The applications for the Spring 2007 come out approx. in early fall, so about late September. And the dates vary, but for my CP last year they started about mid-January.

Just a quick question for someone that is alrdy working on the Cp: How far in advance can you book hotel rooms right now? I'm just curious if its a 3,4,5,6 month window.... I don't come down until September 4th but my parents want to come done in October and December and I just wanted to know the odds of getting discounted rooms. Thanks

Simba, in general you can book rooms pretty far in advanced, but I don't know how much. My dad booked a room for my and my sister for Christmas, and he booked it in March, although we're DVC so that might make a difference. If you're trying to get the CP discount, you have to wait until you're actually at Disney with you ID and all that. I know there's an exact way to go about it, but I'm not sure how exactly, just that you have to be working for Disney before you get the discounts.

I have two questions...

1) I'm thinking about doing the extened Fall 07 college program, meaning I would be moving in sometime mid-May. I will be turning 21 on May 30th of that year. My question is that is there anyway possible for me to be put into a non-wellness apartment, seeing as how my birthday would only be a few days away? If not, how hard would it be to change apartments during the session?

2) I know that Disney offeres transportation pretty much anywhere, (the parks, downtown disney, grocery store, movies, etc) but how convenient is it? Would I be better off just bringing my car down?

1) You have to be 21+ to be in non-wellness- no exceptions. If you are not 21 when you arrive, you will have to go into wellness and then transfer. I don't know how long the process takes, but I am pretty sure that you don't have to pay the $50 transfer fee you would normally have to pay if you were to switch apartments.

2) I would definitely bring the car.

Hi! I have a question for former CP'ers. I'm kind of on the six year plan for school. I took a year off to work at an art gallery in Madrid, and now that I'm 22 and back in school I'm REALLY interested in the CP program. Will I feel like an old lady at the age of 22?

Anyone else on the six year plan?

Heck no! I know people who are a LOT older who have done the CP. I say go for it, and have a good time.
