I was in training 5 days. The first 2 we were just at AK. Then the third day we were at Epcot with the characters, the fourth day was at MGM with the characters, and the fifth day was at MK with the characters.

Doesn't sound too bad. I suppose going in January means it's a slower time of the year. Or maybe not in FL. I know it is here in CA.
Thanks to everyone for answering the questions even though I ask so many! I don't know what I'd do without having you all to ask!

Oh don't worry about it. Heavens knows I asked about a thousand questions myself before my first CP.

Depends on the place you're working. I've been in some places where the training is 3 days, followed by an assessment, some places have 6 days of training followed by the assessment, some have 1 and assessment, it really depends.

January is slower. It's nice to get started with less pressure.

My training was 4 days & assessment in Fantasyland Ops.
When I was a VP, it was like 2 weeks!

First day (after Traditions) is usually just a park/resort tour-- wherever you're going to be. Then it gets into specific locations or roles. Some roles (including VP) require training outside of your work area. I think QSFB & Merchantainment as well.

Yeah. When I was in Merchandise, we did "Once Upon a Time: Is Now" at the MK. Then there was merchantainment, and in-job training. I much prefered the training for my 2nd CP.

Sounds like it's not too bad. And glad to know that you get into doing things pretty quickly. Being slower and not right into the hotter weather is why I finally decided just to do spring. If I extend then fall and my birthday! But that's way down the road. Anyhoo. Thanks!

I was just poking around and saw that they list the commons as another housing complex. I thought it was only for the international and PI's.

It is. Commons is for the International people.

Hi everyone!

I've been thinking about applying for the college program, and was wondering what the interview is like. I saw something about a Haunted Mansion question before, but no specifics on what it (or some of the other typically asked questions) was. Just wondering what sort of things I should expect if I decide to apply Any advice is much appreciated

My interview just had some standard questions. It almost just talking with someone getting to know them. I didn't get asked the question about the rides. Its was a pretty good interview and I was pretty relaxed because it wasn't serious.

And thanks for the reply on the commons. They list it on the WDWCP website but I guess the international people go there too so that's why it's there.

Hey everyone, I just came across this thread, which I read through and found to be very useful. Anywho I'm considering applying for the Spring 07 semester, presentations are next week....I was wondering if the rate of 6.40 is enough to get by, I understand that rent is about $80 a week, plus the cost of food and personal stuff....How has it been for people who have done the program before, was thing enough to get by. I suppose it could also be a Florida thing, I'm from Chicago and the cost of living is much higher here.

Oh don't worry. If you are smart, and save enough, you will be able to get by. I am currently on my 2nd CP, and will probably almost double the amount I brought home last time.

In my interview one of the first things he was sure to tell me was that starting in January it's going to be $6.67. And if you do some positions like quickservice food and beverage and some others you can get a little more. And as my family keeps mentioning to me there also isn't a state sales tax. Or something like that. I live in Ca so any other state seems cheaper to live in!

Red face College Program Participant

Hey Everyone! I am actually leaving in January also to participate in the Disney College Program. I just had an audition and have already completed my interview and was accepted. I was hoping to meet a few people before I head down to Florida in January. Is anyone else particpating starting this January?
