As others have put before it is a rewarding experience but it ...
I bet you were relieved they got sent home. Did you have the place to yourself for a while? That was probably pretty nice..

I agreeMy CP'er is still there until Jan. 4th. They have 6 in their Vista Way apts. They are still together as are their friends in other apts., my guess is as happy as they will be to go home/back to college and see their family and friends it is going to be difficult to leave their Disney friends that became their new family for 6 months.

I am a senior in high school right now, but ive been interested in the college program for a few years now....working in WDW is something that I have always dreamed of doing, and this seems like the perfect opportunity to do so! I dont think Ill apply until im like a junior in college, which will be in like 2011, because I want to go in the spring, but I CANNOT wait until the time comes for me to go! From all your stories, it sounds like it was just as great as it sounds!
DCP Fall 2012: Strollers/Main Entrance Merchandise, Magic Kingdom
Vacations to WDW: 20
Vacations to DL: 2
well if you lived in Florida you could try to be in the Headstart Program. it's set up for highschool students, and i met several great kids from that program while i was there. i hope you get the chance to live your dream, i remember that first time walking onto property and thinking "I work in Disney World." you'll never be quite the same again after that.
I second that. That is true. It will be different when I go next year a total guest again...
