I'm not sure what the cheapest way to get your stuff to Florida. As for what to expect at check-in, you will have to be at Vista Way apartments on the morning on the day that your program starts. Once you are there, you will do ALOT of paperwork and background checks. Then you will be assigned an apartment in a complex. Then on day 2, you will find out your exact work location and what day "Traditions" is for you, which is your first official day of work. The complex will depend on what size of apartment you want and what they have available. Roommates are randomly assigned and you can find out who one of them is through the roommate matching thing that they have online. Which I did before my program and the person never checked in once I got to Florida. As for the amount of money, you will just need money for food, since you will have access to CP transportation that is covered by your rent. Hope that this helps.
