Tell everybody, I'm on my way
And I'm loving every step I take
With the sun beaming down, yes I'm on my way
And there's nowhere that I'd rather be




Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome!

After a long hiatus from the Disney World side of the boards, I have returned for my biggest endeavor yet:

Documenting my 8 month endeavor known as...


:goofy::donald: The Disney College Program! :donald::goofy:

To be precise:
Fall Advantage 2019


If you know me, you know this is not the first time I had taken on an endeavor like this. Check the TR title again for a hint ;)

Oh! And where are my manners? Who am *I*, exactly?


(Those are Iron Man socks btw *sniffles* that I've also had to recently throw away *openly sobs*)

I'm Timmy. I have been the righthand man to a famed orange pup, a figment of your imagination, a princess hiding amongst monsters, the less glamorous Cinderella on both coasts, a mermaid yearning to be part of that world and now...
I shall be a Genie in disguise, selling the wares of a mouse as a

~Merchandise Cast Member~
and telling you the story of those many many months as your TR writer.

Aside from all that, I'm a newly evolved 23 year old with a Bachelor's degree in Management & Business in one hand and my dreams of glory in the other skipping off happily, avoiding true adulting, into an uncertain future. Think the end of The Graduate starring Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft, but less melancholy and more exciting and magical. You'll find me on that path staying up ridiculously late watching Turner Classic Movies and gushing over all the cute manses of old Hollywood, quoting the golden years of RuPaul's Drag Race, singing showtunes or Lady Gaga and being the most endearing little sassafras you love to hate.

BUT Above all I'm a MASSIVE Disney fanatic which is what brought me here.



I first discovered the DISBoards about 9 years ago following my first Disney trip EVER. To give you some perspective when I first went to Disney, Jiminy Cricket ran a nighttime spectacular duo for the ages, we went back back over the falls thanks to trolls instead of letting it go with Elsa, the special kingdom of animals only stayed open until dusk and Catastrophe Canyon was not getting taken over by ewoks. There's so much more that no longer exists of that time, but we're well aware what can happen in a decade's time at Disney even after two trips. Likewise, I wrote my first TR about that time and have now increased that number to SEVEN total trip reports with this being my FIFTH WDW joint on the boards. Add in 3.5 pre-trip reports (long story) and it all culminates in a total of TEN (and a half) TOTAL Disney writing journeys. I don't know how I did that but somehow I did.

In that time, I also managed to conquer none other than the aforementioned
~DISNEY COLLEGE PROGRAM!~



My journey with this program has been an interesting one. I first applied for Fall 2015, which was earlier than I originally intended but I thought why not? Unfortunately, my application never moved beyond the submission phase and I was NLIC'd (No Longer in Consideration) on the last day. That wasn't gonna stop me as I applied again for Fall 2016 and made it all the way to the Phone Interview and a month and one day later, I was accepted to my first CP (College Program or Programmer) as a Lifeguard Cast Member. Most of you reading are probably thinking "hmm, lifeguard? weren't you Custodial?" And you'd be part right. I did start as a lifeguard, something I had done for the past four years prior and even in the days leading up to the program I was lifeguarding. However, Disney's standards are a bit higher and alas I wasn't physically or mentally acclimated for that role and got to transferred to Custodial at the Magic Kingdom!

I spent a lovely five months sweeping up Tomorrowland and Fantasyland in which I truly fell more in love with a company I knew I'd have to work for full time some day. I knew I had to get back, however college called and I had to finish that up. Don't worry, it's done now anyways.

Of course, college couldn't totally stop me and I applied again for the Alumni program last summer at Disneyland (of which I've ALMOST finished documenting if you are interested in that story: https://www.disboards.com/threads/it-takes-people-to-make-the-dream-a-reality-dcp-summer-2018-highlights-trip-report-new-3-5.3705606/) and I was accepted within FIVE DAYS for that, working as Custodial once again but this time at Disney's California Adventure. I might be jumping the gun on this one, but that was easily the best summer of my life and I won't long forget it.



This brings us back here. Immediately following that program, I applied left and right for Professional Internships and more College Programs to fill the empty void of unemployment that would soon follow me after college (I had quit my lifeguarding job the summer following my first CP and would be leaving my work study once I graduated, which only paid me enough for food). While I was at school applying for all that, it didn't go so well, meaning no employment for me in the spring, so I waited until the next application season after a h-e-double hockey sticks of a semester (and not in a good way). It went well at the start. I applied to many Professional Internships, managing a phone screen then an actual blue jeans interview for one in Guest Correspondence at Disneyland (the difference btw is a phone screen is an interview with a recruiter and the blue jeans is with a manager and the final step before acceptance). However, I didn’t end up getting that, DARN! I applied for some jobs back home including the Disney Store where I made it through two interviews where I was NLIC'd not long after the second, probably due to my mentioning of other applications. I applied to American Eagle too. However in all this not-so-great news, I got a glimmer of hope when I applied for another CP. It all happened just as quickly as my last two CPs, except I didn't feel too hot about my interview (we love a self-critical queen). Nonetheless, five days later and I got my acceptance and after two CPs worth of cleaning up Code H’s, Code V’s and Code U’s (take a wild guess at what all that means), I was moving on to Retail aka Merchandise.

In other words, Disney Store... you could've had me haha

Whatever though, instead I will be working at…


Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

SPECIFICALLY

Sunset Boulevard!



Catch me over here in my Walter Elias best at your favorite little shops such as Sweet Spells, Legends of Hollywood, Once Upon A Time (Carthay Circle store), Tower Hotel Gifts and many others. You know the best stores on property? *wink, wink*

To answer your real first question: Yes, this means I’m going to be in the thick of the opening of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge.



*screams internally, not sure if out of fear or excitement*
(Happy Opening again to Disneyland's own portal to Batuu!)

BUT FOR NOW we are here, the day before I fly down with my dad to spend a day of fun before I'm moved into FL in a final move out from home. No turning back. I'm ready to be independent. Before I do really hit that point, I think it important to get in my greatest story yet being a member of the Disney College Program. Jess (PrincessJess508) documented her legendary adventure 6 years ago and I'm about to do the same (just in my own way and maybe... a little better).

Yes, you heard me right. This will be a (mostly) LIVE recount of 8 months in Florida!



My family and I leave June 2nd and my program officially begins on the 3rd. The program officially ends on January 9th, but I don't plan on that being a return home. However I will conclude my story there for my own sanity and you'll be bored hearing about my millionth hug sesh with Pluto anyways (hey, you're about to sign up to read all of this? I need to be as honest and over-exaggerated as possible).

Sooooo you ready for this? Eight months. Four parks. Two water parks. One massive shopping district. A certain "enemy" park. Over twenty-five resort hotels. Two mini-golf courses. Fourth of July. Halloween. Thanksgiving. Christmas. New Year's. The Opening of the Most Immersive Land in Disney Parks History. Pure joy. Imminent depression. Stress. It's all gonna be happening at the Walt Disney World Resort and I'll be keeping all of y’all there with me every step of the way.

Cast of Characters

*This will be a routinely updated list to help keep track of who will be appearing in this TR fairly regularly. I will try my best to include everyone and have pics with everyone, but no guarantees*


My Dad

He'll only be around for about two days helping me move in but I thought I would introduce him. The member of my family who doesn't like Disney bringing me down for my DCP, who would've thought? Honestly though, I think he does enjoy it. He just misses Pleasure Island a lot which I'm sure most can relate to.


Will

One of my roommates in the Fall group. He worked in Entertainment primarily at Magic Kingdom. He also was initially the only person in the apartment under 21 until his birthday at Epcot. He's a huge fan of the new MiSi.


Carlos

Another one of my roommates in the Fall group. They also worked in Entertainment primarily at Magic Kingdom. They mostly ran into me while I was out with other people. Highly social person and a fantastic dancer, was really trying to get the apartment into shape. They currently still work for Disney as seasonal Entertainment.


Sonnet

One of my first friends on the program. She was a Seater over at SciFi Dine-In. We bonded very quickly over both of us being competitive swimmers at one point and we stayed good friends through both our extensions.


Claire

One of my first friends on the program and one of Sonnet's roommates. She worked in Quick Service Food & Beverage at Pinocchio's Village House. She left before the Spring extension.


Caitlin

One of my first work friends after we met during Merchandise Core and stayed in training with each other on Sunset. She also made the jump with me over to Galaxy's Edge and was one of the few people left over there that I worked with post Spring extension.


Blakely

My training buddy over on Sunset and eventually one of my good friends. I unfortunately left her behind on Sunset when I got pulled for Galaxy's Edge, but we still remained in touch. She has since left the Company and works for a connecting third party.


Sydnee

My work bestie Galaxy's wide! We became friends while working on Sunset and then eventually became the only two CPs from Sunset to work in Savi's workshop. We remained pretty good friends through it all and are hoping to still remain with the company.


Zach

AKA @AMusicLifeForMe who I hung out with on many occasions inside the parks. We first hung out when he was still a regular guest, but now he's a FT cast member who was part of the Opening Team for the Skyliner. We bonded a lot over our love of musical theater and the parks in general.


Nam

One of the ICPs I worked with on Sunset. An absolute sweetheart who shared my love of Duffy and friends. She did leave fairly early on but made quite the impact. She is from Thailand.


Jenny

Another ICP I worked with on Sunset. We just enjoyed each other's energy and I vowed to go see her in Thailand and at the Asian parks too.


Alan

A friend I made through the Facebook pages and who eventually worked with me when both were sent over to Galaxy's Edge. He has a strong affinity for Big Al if you couldn't tell as well as the Magic Kingdom holiday parties. He currently is seasonal in Galaxy's Edge.


Erin A
One of my coordinators in Galaxy's Edge that I immediately hit it off. There was a lot of ABBA belting. Nuff said.


Robbie

My other gay half on Sunset. We didn't work together too much but became good friends that bonded over our love of singing, Disney and having horrible posture. He now works Full Time in Animation Courtyard merchandise.


Eric

A mutual friend of Sonnet and Claire's who I ran into often as he worked at Oga's, who shares a breakroom with me and we did hang out once or twice. He stuck around for the Spring extension.


Alexis P

A friend of Eric's who I hit it off with as a CP alum as well as a horror movie buff. She originally worked Quick Service at Port Orleans Riverside but during her Spring Extension she worked Park Arrival merchandise at Epcot.


Ginger Alex

A friend on Sunset and in Galaxy's Edge. We spent a lot of time at certain Halloween events and hanging out at Universal going nuts over Harry Potter and ET. She left at the end of the Fall program. She's also a two-time CP.


Courtney

A former DISer friend of mine who has worked FT at Disney for the past few years and who I spent ample time with. We both love Star Wars and share so much interests within Disney.


Cassidy M

My Disneyland sister that worked with me on Sunset. She was a Spring CP and left fairly early on but our friendship ran fairly deep for the short time we knew each other.


Cassidy T

One of my first friends on this program who worked at Cosmic's Ray. She left at the end of the Fall program.


Dana

One of my first friends on this program who worked at Slinky Dog Dash. She left at the end of the Fall program.


Dina

A good friend I made over at Galaxy's Edge who worked with me in Savi's Workshop early on. We are both huge musical theater buffs and astrology lovers and that played into a lot of what we talked about and did while hanging out. She extended into Spring with me.


Taylor

One of my buddies in Savi's workshop who enjoyed many nights with me at Wendy's and at HHN. She left at the end of the Fall program.


Jenna

Another Sunset co-worker that followed me over to Galaxy's Edge. We spent some fun days in the parks together. She left at the end of the Fall program.


Morgan S

Another Sunset co-worker that followed me over to Galaxy's Edge. We spent some fun days in the parks together.


Emily C

One of my friends from my first program, a former roommate of my friend Kaitlyn's. She worked at Contempo Cafe on her first program and for this program, she was a seater over at Tony's Town Square. She extended into Spring.


Adam

A neighbor of mine in Vista Way who I met preemptively through the Facebook page. He worked as a driver of the Disney Springs Sassagoula boats. He extended with me.


Cassidy K

A co-worker of mine in Galaxy's Edge at Savi's Workshop who spent a lot of time with me at Universal and the parks. She extended into Spring with me but ended that extension early and now works at Ollivander's at Universal.


Aspen

A co-worker of mine in Galaxy's Edge who lived near me in Vista Way. She eventually moved out and is still living in Florida. She extended into Spring with me.


Kaitlyn G

A friend of mine from my Disneyland program who shared a deep love of Disney history. She came down for her professional internship with WDI.
