    I plan to apply as well!
    From what I've been reading in other forums, applications for fall will probably be up in the CP website on late January/early February. Can't wait!

    Yes, you can't apply for the Fall 2010 semester yet because they are just finishing up recruiting for the Spring 2010 right now. Late January/early February will be the time to attend a presentation (or watch an E-Presentation) and then apply. Good luck!

    For Fall 2009, the application went up Jan 20 (and from what I heard, went up the same for Fall 2008). I may end up extending one more time, so I would be on the CP until Aug 2010.

    Fall Advantage starts late May (and sometimes there are early June dates). And Fall starts in Aug.

    Re: College Program Fall 2010

    If at all possible and your college participates with the college program (not all do), I'd apply when Disney comes to your campus. Having two of my daughters do the college program so far , I'd say it was well worth it. Though I'd warn you ahead of time, it is not a walk in the park. You will most likely work your butt off (my kids normally worked 12 hour days, on New Year's eve one of my kids worked from 4pm to 2am New Years Day, got to bed around 3:30am, then had to be back to work at 10 am, which means she was up and to the bus stop around 8am.

    For warned is for armed, it is not a 6 month party with Mickey Mouse.

    The amount of hours worked will depend on the location. For 4 of my CPs, I never worked more then 8 hours a day. It was only on my first half of this current CP (at Toy Story Mania) that I had 12 hour+ days.

    Re: College Program Fall 2010

    It depends on the school. For some schools, you might be able to get credit for doing the CP (mine gave me credit for doing 2 of my CPs, so I was able to remain a fulltime student). However, for others, you might not get any credit from your school. I do recommend talking to someone at your school though.
