I had sooo much fun! I'd love to go back for another program. I wasn't really even interested in performance stuff before I did it. During my first program, I fell in love with the characters, auditioned, got the role, and found that I really loved doing that. As a consequence, I've had a job as a costume character (SeaWorld) for the last year and a half here in San Diego, and even branched out into followsopt and stagehand work!

Not to sound stupid but what is the college program? I have heard about it but i don't know what it is exactly.
The college program is a program WDW does by going to colleges around the US.. (usually forgetting about where I am..) and recruit.. it is a semester where you are housed and payed.. (they take some money away for basic things..) You work somewhere in WDW in one of "many" positions... you could be a character in MK.. or working an attraction at MGM, or even performing in some show.. It is a great program... or so i keep hearing.
^There are 2 complexes for the College Program (1 for the International Program before anybody jumps on me). 1 to 4 bedroom apartments are available, and with double-occupancy that gives you 2-8 people per apartment. Each apartment has a kitchen with oven, stove, sink, dishwasher, fridge, cookware and untensils. Each apartment also has at least 1 bathroom. The living area is furnished with a couch, a chair, dining table and chairs. Each bedroom has a dresser and closet, with a locker to lock up any items.
