    I don't have any advice, since I'm not in the College Program. But, I hope to be in it some day!

    When anyone asks me about my program I say it was amazing and the best thing I have ever done with my life. Haha. Seriously...I had the best time ever and I love the company so much that now...I am a campus rep for the disney college program. Tah dah! Meaning I recruit students from my school to head to florida and have an amazing life changing experience. I will note however...its what YOU make of it. And trust me...I made A LOT of my experience.

    The CP is such an amazing experience (and I am not just saying this because I have done 3). You get to work for one of the best companies in the world, and you get to go play in the parks for free. How many people get to go play at work? There are so many different roles to pick from too. So I highly recommend doing the program.

    As for stories, I have so many I don't even know where to start.

    WOW, where to start? For me, it feels like forever that I was on my CP. I worked merchandise in the MK at the Emporium. I was part of the Emporium Expansion team, which was when they brought all of the stores on that side of the street be connected as one. I had so much fun during my program. Where else can you work and have fun at the same time? And you get to play in the parks for free!!! What can be better than that!! I totally recommend it to anyone who loves Disney. You can't get any closer to the magic than this.

    If there are any questions that I can help you with, please let me know. I am more than happy to help you.
    Can't wait to go back !!!

    I did the spring 1999 program. Had a great time. Some of my friends were in food and beverage. They worked pretty hard, but not a single one regrets their experience. One piece of advice. If you can drive down. Trust me it makes life a lot easier. Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions. Good luck down there.

    I am hoping to get into this program later on in my college experience. I think it would be amazingly fun....hopefully I can meet some people on here who can give me some helpful advise to help me prepare to apply to the program.
