hello all! i have a couple of questions.....i've been reading through the CP website, and correct me if i'm wrong, but the CP is open to grad students as well, right? also, would that "must have completed 1 semester" requirement still apply? because a grad student's first semester can be a lot shorter than an undergrad......i know at my school, i only have to enroll in one class to be eligible for financial aid, which is usually an indication of a "full time" status. also, if doing the CP, do you have to stay in the disney-provided accomodations or can you rent elsewhere?

i'm totally kicking myself for not trying harder to do this while i was still an undergrad.....it just never worked out for me! i've always wanted to do the college program, but i've also been wondering if the internships are a better way to go....although it seems like it's going to be difficult to snag one of those w/out going through the CP first.....yalls opinions/advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

Also, you can work extra hours. There is some fun stuff on the portal for extra hours. I did parade control last CP for extra hours, and it was a lot of fun. And use the discount for buying stuff if you can. The holiday discount is very nice.
Well no worries with the partying thing. I don't really drink or anything a lot. I plan to use the discount at all times and I have a AAA discount to for disney. I was just wondering with the entertainment because this girl on webshots that did CP entertainment was Belle and in the parades and different things. I suppose you have to be really good to get it. I like to think I'm a good performer. And I always work as much as I can. Thanks!

Not necessarily. I know a lot of CPs who do parades, and my best friend is getting trained for CTS (a Christmas show). So it all depends on what they are looking for. So good luck.

Well that gets my hopes up a bit! I don't even know if I have the right look but 2 girls at school thursday said I could be little mermaid. It made an unbearable day a little brighter. I wish I could just fast forward two weeks!

I'm worried too because I'm not exactly a make-up expert. I usually have had someone else to help me out. I don't wear too much of it on a day to day basis....

I hear you. The wait from before the audition to the audition, and then from the audition until when I found out, were the longest ever. And I would love to be a performer someday, and get to be in the parades.

It's a dream since I was a little girl. I marched in a parade with my high school band in Disneyland down main street. I would just like to do it now as a performer of Disney. I hear it's competetive though.

I think it depends on certain factors.

Well I don't want to think too far ahead but if I got an entertainment role I think I would extend. Unless I was really unhappy with how it went. What are you thinking about factors?

I would love to extend, but as this is my 2nd CP I can't extend. But I am going to go seasonal, and then go full-time as soon as I graduate. And I plan to keep working until I can become a performer (my next audition will be my third). And by factors, I meant factors factoring into entertainment/parade performers.

I plan to do the same thing. My family is already telling me that I might end up liking FL and staying there. I still would like to work at Disneyland though. I figured you were talking about the factors in entertainment. I figure it depends on who is already in the positions and personality and all. I seem to get along with everybody so I'm not too worried there.

That's good. I have never been to DL, and would like to go there someday.

Alright I am back for more questions, by the way I decided I am going to do this and leaving in January. FIrst how does the bus system work and do you have to pay for it. Do you get to pick the apartment complex you want to live at or do they pick it for you. ALso is there a desk in the bedroom. Since I will be graudating and this will be count as my internship my advisor said that I need a signature from the people i will be working for, since I wont know till I get there do you know who I can contact with about this. I am also wondering how the traditions class work is it an all day thing? Thankyou in advance.

The bus system is free. There is a bus schedule with the times for all the parks, DTD, Walmart, ect. You can ask to be placed in a complex, and the # of bedrooms, and they will try to place you in what you want. There is no desk in the bedroom (at least not at Chatham), but there are nightstands that could work for a laptop. As for Traditions, it is about 6-7 hours long.

Hey, I was wondering about after check in. If you get placed at Chatham or Commons, will the bus be there to take you to your new apartment or do you need to get a ride? I really want to stay at Chatham, and I'll have my suitcases and computer with me, but I won't have a car.

Thanx!
