    CP programs for the summer, to the best of my recollection:

    Spring Advantage you'll work Jan - Aug
    Fall Advantage....I'm not sure the dates, but iirc, it starts in June and ends in Dec
    there is a summer program, but it seems that program is for CP Alumni only, at least according to the email I got
    All the people will look up and shout: "Save us!" and I'll whisper...'no'.

    Who watches the watchmen?

    There are 3 different programs.

    Spring/Spring Advantage- Spring is January-May and Spring Advantage is January to August.

    Fall/Fall Advantage- Fall is August to early January and Fall Advantage is May/June to early January.

    Summer Alumni- This is May- August, and is for people who have done the CP already.

    There are also some Advanced internships such as the horticulture internship that are for the summer only. And no you don't always have to have done the regular college program first. I'm not sure which other ones are just for the summer.

    New to this forum.. I was just cast as a CM for the summer only (and im not alumni). It's a very small group (i think only 200 or so get in) and you can only work in Quick Serve Food and Bev or Custodial. The dates are the same as alumni's dates.



    dont quote me on that number thing, i just thought i heard that number.. but i could very well be wrong!!

    If you are talking to me, yes there are. Besides this one and www.wdwcpinfo.com, there also are:
    www.disneyalumni.com
    www.stupidguesttricks.com
    and other boards that have a section for the college program.
