As you’ve guessed, I have a question. I kinda sorta want to take a class while at Disney, but I also kinda sorta don’t want to. My big problem is, I don’t know what classes they offer. The only one I’ve heard about was the “Marketing You” which is about learning how to network right? What are the other classes offered? Thank you everyone! You’re all the biggest helps!!

Glad to hear I'm not the only one on the six year plan. I only recieved 6 hours of credit for my stay in Spain, but it was WELL worth it. I think...

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 can ask them to put to non-wellness apartment if that's what you wish. It doesn't cost you a dime to change if you're 21 year olds, but it can take sometime to have staff switch you over another place.

2) The transportation that Disney may be providing you to get you most of places, but NOT everywhere. Personally, I was glad that I brought my own car.

if you check into the program within 15 days of turning 21 they will automatically put you in a non-wellness apartment (unless you ask to be in a wellness apartment)- i've done fall advantage both programs and it's amazing! the regular program isn't enough time down there to have fun!

I got my letter today! It took two weeks exactly! I will be working in merchandise.. Just have to select my arrival date.. Would it be better to come the date in early august, or the end of the month? Both types of dates are available.

Costuming Role

Hi everyone! There is so much great info on this board...thanks! I want to apply for Spring 2007 when the time rolls around. The costuming role is definately what I want to do but I can't find any info on it other than what is on their website. Has anyone had this role?...knew someone whos had the role?...know anything about it at all? Any info would be great! Oh...and I'm mostly interested in working with the characters and their costumes if that makes any sort of a difference. As long as I'm doing more than just cleaning the clothes I'd be happy!

So I was wondering... I have a tattoo on the top of my foot.. it doesn't show if I wear socks, I know it will have to be covered while at work and class and that is no problem, but I was wondering if I will be able to wear flip-flops around the apartment, and apartment complex?? Also if I decide to go to the parks on my day off???

That is fine. You can wear flip-flops with it on your day off.

I have been going back and forth on if I should do this or not. The thing is I can only do after I graduate and complete my college education, which throws it a bit off for me. Part of me says I am going to have over $25,000 in loans and I could get a good job after I finish and begin paying those off. The sooner the better. Plus, what if I get offered an AMAZING job but they say they will give it to somebody else if I go? The other part of me says that I will work the rest of my life, and this is the only time EVER I will be able to go to WDW for 6+ months. So it's tough.

What is the 6 year thing? Haven't heard of it?
