    For those of you who are going to take classes when you're doing the program, I'm confused about where it says Disney talks to our schools to verify everything.. Do I personally have to do anything, or is all handled between Disney and my school? I looked at the website from a link in another thread and on the site where educators log in to see their students, but does my school/advisor get his login information from Disney, or do I have to tell him that I'm doing it so he can see?

    I went to my career center a couple of weeks ago and right off the bat I was told the school doesn't accept any credit for the program, but that it still may be useful to do on my own. Do I have to go back and let them know that I'm doing it? Since they aren't accepting credit, I decided to go for it and take the Spring semester off, so I didn't register for classes or pay for housing or anything, because I won't be there..

    So is there anything that I myself have to do? Any forms to get filled out or anything, or do I just go to my advisor and get the leave of absence form signed and that's that?

    disney does not actually call schools. this would be a confidentiality breach and against the law. for example have your parents ever tried to fix something for you at school? Or pay a bill? Schools can not even confirm that you are a student. There is no way that disney calls so you are all set. you'll find out that many kids lie about being students- or why you see 55 year old cps

    I would tell your school that you are taking a leave of absence so that you can easily come back in the fall and you'll need to sign up for classes in the spring!

    Yeah I agree with people here - after talking about enrolling (and doing it) just to do the CP I heard tons of stories about people not being students during application or even within a year of their application.

    If you think about it, it makes sense. Disney doesn't care if you're willing to accept pay lower than their part-time/seasonal employees to work the same jobs. You just aren't eligible for the same credit as most people and it's on you if you're caught lying.
