    Wait till I am 21?

    Well I am hopefully going to be doing the fall 2009 program, but I was wondering if it was worth it to wait until I am 21? Are there going to be a lot of things I will not be able to part of, on the CP website there was talk of clubs ect... any thoughts on this? Thanks!

    I have a friend down there right now who's not over 21. She does just fine, and enjoys it very much! I really don't think there's a lot of reason to wait until you're 21.

    Everything that is listed on the CP website is for everyone there is no age limit or requirement for the activities. So you will be fine!

    Thanks, if I can get accepted I am just going to the fall semester! Do you think it would be worth while to bring my car? I love in Arizona though... pretty far

    If you think that your car can make the drive, I would bring it. It will give you more flexibility on your days off. if you want to.

    I think it's up to you. If you think you will be doing a lot of stuff outside Disney (going to the beach, Universal, ect), I would bring the car. But if you think you will just be sticking to Disney stuff, I don't think I would. It is possible to survive without a car. But the choice is up to you.

    Re: Wait till I am 21?

    I was wondering the same age question! But I mean, we'll save money not buying alcohol and have more to go do anything else. I'd just like to go to Atlantic Dance Hall or Jellyrolls, but other than that, I decided I'm just going for it for Fall '09. Hope to see you there!

    Re: Wait till I am 21?

    the only thing i'd say about whether or not to wait until you're 21 is how much self control you have. i went while i was 20 and, while i was fine, i saw countless people getting termed for drinking, so you never know. alot of people don't look at the big picture when they decided to crack open a beer, or even be in a room with people drinking, you have about 24 hours to leave once you've been termed, and if you came from far away that could definitely end up costing you a lot, not to mention you now have the rest of the semester not in school, not in disney. i thought about this every time a roommate went to a party or some neighbors invited us over for a drink, so as long as you do too you'll be fine.
    a dream is a wish your heart makes, when you're fast asleep.
