    He probably would have lots of years to go.....he was looking at getting into teaching but he's burned out on school right now. (Which was part of the reason he was looking forward to this program....you don't actually go to school....just work) They offer a few classes that can qualify for college credits but I don't think he did them.....did this for more for the experience.

    Ahh. I never knew how the college program worked!

    I wasn't either, I had imagined that they transfer for a term or two at a nearby college or did college courses at one of the Disney buildings that earned them credits while taking a hiatus from school. But from what I've seen, it seems like more of a chance for the kids to get away from home and be worked to death. :confused: Not sure Derek has earned any credits or not (by choice or that's just how it is) I know Derek isn't a fan of Florida and can't wait to be done.....I also know, he wasn't thrilled with his job assignment and once assigned.....you're pretty much stuck. Was really hoping this was going to be an amazing experience for him........ :guilty: I think he's had some real highlights and has made some good friends......but overall, I'm not sure he'd do it again.

    I haven't started packing......I did go pick up suitcases from my mom over the weekend. The only bag that is starting to be packed is the diaper bag that will hold not only diaper bag stuff, but also cameras, batteries and all our important paperwork. I did a small photo book to keep our itinerary, dining ressies, hotel ressies, wax museum tickets, etc and that will be kept deep inside the diaper bag. I'm not even taking a purse this trip!! So all that important stuff is already in the bag and ready to go. Since Michayla will use the stroller most of the trip, the diaper bag seemed like a good way to go since we can hang it on the handle of the stroller and it will go on rides with us.

    As for the clothes......we need them.....so I'll be doing laundry the Weds before we go and sending the kids to school on Thursday in rags...... :rotfl: I don't have enough clothes for our entire trip, so I know I'll be doing a batch or two of laundry at the PPH.......otherwise we'll be sleeping nakey :scared1: and going commando and sockless for half of the trip......... :sad2: No Thanks!! :lmao:

    Tons of excitement right now because of the trip AND because it's all decorated in the house for Christmas!! :santa:

    How excited you must all be!!

    Me... I'll be on the road tomorrow to go to DL! For a whopping day and a half lol! But I scored a hotel using Priceline for $36/night ($89 with taxes) and it beats sitting in my room alone for 2 days. I just hope I can stay awake once I get to DL to enjoy the few hours I will have there and not end up falling asleep as soon as I reach the hotel.

    Hi Laurie, just popping in. I have been catching up on you pre-trip report. I won't be at DL for the holidays this year, so I am living vicariously through your trip report ! :cool1:

    My daughter Kim had some similar observations to Derek's on the CP. I know my daughter wasn't real thrilled with Florida either. She described herself as "A West Coast type of gal" after going through the program. She did make some great friends that she is still best friends with through the CP. She too wants to go back and work for Disney but in Anaheim instead of Florida. Anyway, I hope it all works out for him. I feel like he will have a good chance at getting on at DL since he has worked for Disney already.

    You are well under the two week mark now! Wahoo! :thumbsup2

    Nice to see you!!! I think they over work those poor kids but they're young and can handle it......lol I think he'll be able to find work at Disneyland.....but he may need other work to make it work down there......super expensive to live down there. We will see!!

    :rotfl: I'll be here all week!!!! :rotfl2:
