I don't think so. Look, Disney is VERY serious about the whole underage alcohol issue. There are NO second chances. Mess up once and you're gone faster then you can say Mickey Mouse- as in 24 hours. And if you get terminated, you can't work any of Disney's companies (and there are a lot). I know a LOT of people who got terminated because of alcohol. They will find out. It's just not worth it.

Red face

Hey everybody. I have some questions for the alum. Are the apartments single sex or both? If they give you an invitation to be an operator and you wanted to be a lifegaurd is there anyway you can change that? I got accepted for spring program but am having a hard time figuring out if I am going to go. Thanks for any answers.

The apartments are male/female, but the actual rooms are not. Then again, as long as you belong to the complex you can spend the night in any room.

As for switching, it's extremely difficult once you are assigned your role.

This question isn't really too much about the CP, but I didn't know where else to ask it. I was just curious...when celebs visit WDW, are there special exits and entrances for them to use to go to the rides, shows, restaurants, shops, etc? Do they even wait in line at all? I became curious on this topic because my little cousin told me yesterday to "Make sure to get Hilary Duff and Raven's autographs if you see them singing a concert at Disney World!" , lol, kids are so cute. That would make her day.

mara1203- i am in the college program right now. I live in Chatham and its def. the better apartment complex if you are going between Vista and Chatham. If you arent big into partying than Chatham is more your style. I am taking a class down here and would say it has helped in the way of meeting alot more friends. that you dont work with. Disney gives you the hours you work the week before, so its done weekly. Any other questioin feel free to email me...i am also a campus rep. so most of your questions i can answer.

figments407- I think that you are totally correct on the creating magic part. I am working at a wdw resort right now my program is up in 4 weeks and can truly say i have created magic for many people. I dont know what its like working in a park tho, but im sure its pretty much the same.

It is difficult, but possible. My roommate switched roles last month. She's much happier in this role. Although, if you're assigned to something, they do require that you give it a fair chance. I mean, you can't really NOT like something until you've tried it.

Talking

Well everyone I am checking in on the 9th. So I hope to see some of you there but I have a question. How much does it cost to do laundry? I am trying to make out my budget and would like to know. Thank you.

I'm not sure about the other complexes, but at Vista it is a dollar to wash and a dollar to dry.

Is there a limit on how many nights a CP can get a resort discount while they are in the program ? If my husband and I go to visit twice during my daughter's time there, can she get us the discount both times?

Red face Arriving Jan 9th

Hey guys! I'm arriving Jan 9th to work in operations.. SOOOO excited.
That and I turn 21 in a week..

In any case, through the wdwcpinfo boards, i've met a very lovely chickie with the same arrival date & we would really like to room together. i've been told to stand in line with her and such, but is there any reason that we wouldnt be roomates? we're the same age (21), same preferences (3 or 4 bedroom at chatham, non smoking), and same arrival date.

It is said that we must be within the 'Disney Look' guidelines upon arrival at check-in.

Does this include full guidelines for non-costumed cast members, i.e: professional attire ... or is that just for Traditions?

We have to be within the guidelines reguarding hair, jewelry, (men - clean shaven.. if you're not, they'll hand you a razor and show you the bathroom).

It doesn't matter what we wear that day, as long as there aren't bare shoulders cuz we're having our ID picture taken. So girls, if you wear a tank top (keep in mind it's january) just bring a sweater or hoodie to wear over it.

Just be comfortable.. it's going to be a very long day
