    WDWCP General Information

    The Walt Disney World College Program is a U.S. national internship program operated by The Walt Disney Company, stationed at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. The Walt Disney World College Program recruits students (18 years and older) and all majors for a semester-long paid internship program working at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Walt Disney World College Recruiting actively schedules program presentations at most major universities and community colleges across the United States and Puerto Rico. The philosophy behind the program is further broken down into its three main concentrations: Living, Learning and Earning.

    For more information, you can read about this on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WDWCP

    To those DWT members that are from Canada or overseas they have a program for us too! WDWIP(International Program). Same idea. Ages 18-25, It used to be a 6,9 or 12 month program. They provide you with a place to stay.

    It has been 15 years now since I worked there but anyone interested can PM me. Also check out the website on the post below.

    LONG LIVE VISTA WAY!! Party in #1702!!

    Just a note that that's a (very useful but) unofficial website. The Official International Program Site is also available...

    That is a better site. It must be fairly new. I couldn't find an International Program site through Disney for the longest time.

    All you need to do is go to a school with a presentation, or watch the online presentation. Then you need to fill out the application and schedule an interview with a recruiter. It is really easy. I am currently on my 2nd CP and loving it. You can find more info at www.wdwcollegeprogram.com.
