I am back again because my time for applying is coming quickly. Here are the questions I have right now...

1. I know there are 1, 2 ,3 and 4 bedroom apartments, but are there always two people in one bedroom?

2. Can you ask to work in a specific park? For example, I would LOVE to work in Magic Kingdom or Epcot. Can I request those?

3. Will my boyfriend and I be able to see each other often? I am worried that we will have different work schedules and never be able to see each other.

4. Finally, do employees get a discount on the merchandise?

I am applying for Spring 07 if that makes a difference for any of the questions.

1. Yes there is always 2 people per bedroom.

2. I don't believe it is possible. I believe they have already placed you by the time you check in.

3. That probably won't be answered until you get your schedules, but I am sure you will have time to see each other.

4. Yes you do. I believe it is 20% off.

Question Classes During College program

I was reading the sylabi(sp?) for Disney Communication and Organizational Leadership. Was just wondering how hard the courses were in your opinions of you or people you have talked to that have taken them. Another question is i know they schedule around your classes but do you get more hours if you dont take classses?

Thanks for opinions and help
(only 7 days til my flight)

Hello

Hi there this is my first post. My name is Dan and I am looking forward to chatting with everyone and having a good time

Well I really want to do the program. I was wondering if Disney does any open house event for the CP>? I may be in Florida in August and thought it would be neat to see the apartments and talk to a few CP's ... but would Disney be ok with this or help me... or would I be on my own>? I thought maybe I could meet people on forums and such that are doing the CP and wouldnt mind showing me around (If that isnt too creepy ). Any help you guys can give me regarding Disney's policy on visitors interested in the College program would be VERY Helpful

Also, does anyone know if there are any forums or websites out there dedicated to Spring 07 CP or is it too early Anyone else here possibly doing the spring 07 program>?

Like I said , THANK YOU and I am looking forward to lots of fun on the site.

Auf,

Danny

Hey, I am scheduled to do operations in the fall college program (I leave in 22 days!). I can't wait,but I have a question if anyone knows. I have heard about people switching to character performer after they get down there and I was wondering how that works. I'm a musical theatre major and performance is my passion so I would rather do that if I could. Thanks

Usually people switch after they audition at the end of the CP. If they switch, it's because they are a dead ringer for a character or they are extremely short/tall.

Yes there are characters that tall. And that is a good height. But remember- this doesn't always happen. If it doesn't, just audition at the end of the program.

Another Question

Sorry to ask so many questions............I was wondering if they ever ask you what your preference would be as to where you work. I'm in operations and would really love to work as a guide (or whatever the people who talk throughout the ride are called) on the great movie ride. I love old movies and performance is my forte. Will I have the chance to tell them that that is what I would like to do if possible?

Just reading through this thread is getting me so excited about the CP -- and I haven't even applied yet! But if everything goes as planned, I'll be looking into being down there for Spring Advantage 2007 (Jan-Aug).

I do have a question, though: are admissions big on work experience? I know it's definitely helpful if you know your way around a cash register and how to interact with guests. Truth is, I haven't had a lot of work experience, even though I have done some volunteer work. Do you think, even if I wind up having a stellar interview, that this will significantly hinder my chances of making the cut?

No not at all. The fact is, when I applied for my first CP, that was my first real job-ever. So don't worry about it at all.

Thanks! That's a very big relief for me. Besides, the more you think about it, Disney is all you need as work experience -- just think how impressive that looks on a resume!

Let me just take a survey: between the two, would you rather do the CP during Spring Advantage or Fall Advantage and WHY?

I was wondering if there is any chance of meeting Robert Iger while on the CP or other Disney executives. I think it would be really fun to be able to meet the CEO and talk to him about the company. So far I'm a fan of his and would like to be able to congratulate him on being the CEO and ask him to keep up the good work. Also I hope to be doing the CP in the Spring so if anyone would like to talk my s/n is gqman87 and since i cant post urls yet my myspace is the myspace address followed by /dlaser.

I have done both. I did Spring 2005 (Jan 12-Aug 5) and am currently on Fall Advantage 2006. I would have to definitely say Fall Advantage. You get to be down here for the holidays. There is no better time to be down here.
