    Re: Disney college program

    Disney's College Program is a chance for students to work and learn at one of the most successful business in the world. Depending on what program you choose, Fall, Fall Advantage, Spring, or Spring Advantage, the amount of time you're there varies. The regular fall and spring programs are August to December and January to May respectively. I think Spring Advantage is January to August but I forget what Fall Advantage is.

    The program itself is set up in a way where you gain working experience as well as credits that can be transferred back for your school. You work probably around 40 hours a week, and you take 4 classes as well, though I don't know the schedule of the classes or how often you have to go to them. You live in an on-site apartment with I think 4-6 other people. You gain freed admission to the park whenever you're not working and you can also get one guest in free for, I believe, 5 days. There's also 24 hour transportation to off-site malls and grocery stores.

    In terms of what happens after the CP, you can continue working there by simply applying as if it was a regular job, but they wouldn't provide housing or transportation to you. The alternative is either returning to the CP again, or applying for the internship programs. The intern programs are a bit more serious as you get far more important jobs that put into more real world situations. Of course if you do well with these, there is a good chance you could apply for a permanent job there and be given the job.

    Hope this was informative!

    Fall Advantage is May-Jan.

    The CP is a great experience. After doing my programs, I was lucky enough to be able to go Fulltime, and I am still working at Disney

    Re: Disney college program

    just in case that wasn't enough info, there's a wikipedia style site called WDWIP - Walt Disney World International Programs that has more information and discussion boards so you can talk to other people who've done the CP/ICP/CRP.

    but just so you know, it's not run by disney, just some people who did the programs...

    There's already a HUGE thread here on MC about the College Program. Just use the search feature and you'll be able to find it.
