    I realize this is still quite some time from now, but I was wondering if anyone else is planning on doing the CP for the fall of 2007?

    I am! I was planning on going down this Fall, but it didn't work out with my school. So now I am going for fall advantage 2007 hopefully, right after I graduate in May. :cloud9:

    Any preference on a role for you?

    I wish I could do it Fall 07, but I'm going to have to wait until Spring 08 :(.

    I am going to apply for operations, and transportation. I will be graduating next spring as well. I am wanting a career with the company so I figured doing the CP right after graduating would allow me to just stay down there after the program is over. What about you?

    That's what I am planning on doing as well. :D I am hoping for a role in recreation (for the children's programs) or maybe hospitality. When I was accepted for this fall, when I couldn't go, I got operations, which was my third choice.

    Yeah, I am in the same boat as you (wanting a career at Disney) except I'm going really out there and planning on transferring to UCF (Uni. of Central Florida in Orlando) this Spring just so I can be down there. Hehe, I know thats crazy but gotta go for your dreams right? I figure I should do at least 2 semesters there before I go off to CP but I figure actually living down there will open up a lot more opportunities for me.

    What type of career would you like at Disney?

    UCF is a great school, that is where I plan on eventually getting my bachelors. I go to FSU and live in the Florida panhandle right now so it will not be a big move for me. I would like to get an operartions management type role. Although to start off I will pretty much take what I can get and work my way through from there.

    Just a suggestion but if you are going to be down there for school, maybe consider picking up a part-time job with them. That way you already get a feel for the company and how things are ran.

    Oh yeah definitely, I'll be looking into that. I'm willing to start anywhere also, as much as I love Disney I know starting out working for them won't be Magic Kingdom lala land :lmao:. Ideally though when I gain experience and get my degree I would love be an Event Coordinator for one of the parks planning seasonal attractions/parades stuff of that sort.

    Just wanted to wish everyone thinking about doing the CP good luck (even though it isn't for awhile. :teeth: ). It is a great program.

    I'll be down in the spring, but I'm planning to be there in the fall and beyond. Good luck to all of you...maybe I'll see you around :)

    Yeah, I do have a facebook. I will also PM you with my info. :)

    Thanks SweaterInJune! You found out already that you were accepted?! When did you interview? I didn't think theys starting recruiting until the beginning of September for spring. Did you do the e-presentation?

    I am considering it...I'm an elementary education major so my program is 4 1/2 years, so I'd be student teaching next fall. But I'd love to do the WDWCP rather than graduate midyear (I know I could do it after I graduate, but I'd much rather do the CP in the fall for some reason!). So we will see!! The program sounds like so much fun!

    I always wanted to do the fall program. I think it would be so much fun to be down at Disney World for the holidays. :D

    Will your school let you do the program?

    I was accepted a few weeks ago. I got a call from my recruiter. I did do the E-Presentation because I had already been accepted for Spring '03, but I couldn't go. Anyhow, I felt I had a good handle on what the CP was so I just did the E-Pres and phone interview. It was great and easy... :)

    Exactly, that's why I think the fall would be so much better!

    I don't see why they wouldn't let me do it...I've mentioned it to my advisor several times now, and she said it sounds like a lot of fun and I could do it after student teaching. I just don't know if it would be easier doing it after I student teach so I wouldn't have to worry about going back to school.

    SweaterInJune--congrats on being accepted, you must be so excited!

    I am, thanks! I look at this as a first step in the line of one of the 2 careers I've always wanted, so it's a very good thing... :)

    That's awesome! I did the E-Presentation for when I interviewed for Fall 06, because I had already gone to a live presentation previously. I didn't find out until I got my packet though. Are they making a habit of calling people now? How long did it take you to find out?

    wdwgirl03, that's good. I thought I could do the program, but then my school changed its mind and I was told that I esentially had to take a leave from the school and then apply to be readmitted. I decided then that it was just easier to do it after I graduated. Plus, I wasn't going to get any credit.

    I definitely have my sights set on Fall Advantage '07. By sheer dumb luck, I was able to work it into my six-year plan! :hyper:
