disneyallure asked: Hey there! i know you're pretty familiar with the dcp! and i need your help on a decision sooo there is an audition for face character look alike on the 19th of this month for Disneyland! And I kinda want to go because Disneyland rarely has face character auditions, but the only thing is I haven't been accepted (pending) into the program yet and also I don't know if I can be a face character and be in the disney college program. Any advice?
Go to the audition! They’re fun and it’s a good experience where you can meet new people.
If you’ve applied to the Walt Disney World College Program and this audition is looking for CPs, if you are cast they would simply place you in Entertainment rather than another role. The Disneyland College Program, however, does not allow CPs to be in Entertainment.
For now, just audition. If you’re cast then think about if Entertainment is something that you really want to do and go from there. Good luck!
You move to a new one for your extension and your extension goes through your CP so housing and disney work together on it.
Thank you so much! I didn’t extend my program, so I wasn’t sure what to tell her. Have a wonderful day!
Another DCP Housing Question!
My friend from back home has one more question concerning extensions:
When a CP extends their program, does Disney contact Housing and arrange that extension, or is it up to the CP? (I feel like it’s Disney…)
Does the CP usually stay in the same apartment for their extension or do they move to a new one?
DCP Housing Question!
I have friend from back home who was just accepted into the Program. Yay!
She was wondering if you still have to have the same program dates as the people you live with. As in both move-in and move-out. I don’t know if it’s changed since my program, so if someone could help her I’d really appreciate it!
I think the funniest thing ever is when distant relatives try to explain what the CPs in their family do at Disney.
"Oh my niece interned at Disney. She worked in Costuming. I didn’t even know she could sew!"
Male guest at Studios: “She works in the Minnie Mouse ice cream parlor. Where is it?”
Me: “Sir, there is no Minnie Mouse themed ice cream parlor here.”
Guest’s wife: “Harold, no, she sells Mickey Mouse ice cream bars at the carts.”
"My cousin’s daughter didn’t enjoy her [program]. She said that she had to work with strollers a lot. Can you imagine? Only moving strollers for months!"
Anonymous asked: Hi, I applied for the DCP Spring 2015. The other day it sounded like a lot of people got an email saying they're pending, myself included. I was wondering if you can tell me what that means!
I can! Pending means that you haven’t been accepted yet, but you also haven’t been denied either. It’s kind of like the DCP “Waitlist” so to speak. I do believe they use those who are pending to fill the spots of the ones who were accepted and deny their invitation to do the program (they could do this if they’re not ready, don’t have the money, school issues, etc.). It could also mean they just need more time to consider you for the program. I can’t guarantee that this is fact, but I do know that pending is essentially a wait list.
Hope this helps! Good luck!
As a bit of reassurance, anon, I was pended for ten weeks before I was accepted into the DCP. It may take a while, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. Best of luck!
Super excited to wear my new #DisneyCP alumni shirt around #Disneyland last night! Someone even recognized me from my blog on Star Tours…that was cool.
I… I kind of want this shirt

Anonymous asked: Hey I was strongly considering applying for the college program. Is sounds like so much fun but before I commit to applying I was wondering if there were any downsides to it?
you’re gonna work your butt off, just know that going in. you’re going to get the shittiest, longest hours, and sometimes you’ll be so tired you’ll fall asleep on your crappy little cot bed in housing still wearing your costume.
but when you’re working those long hours, you make the best friends. there were nights on my cp where i thought i would die from laughing so hard. i would go to waffle house at four am with my friends and somehow forget how tired i was. and people i hadn’t even known existed a few months beforehand became some of my greatest friends in the world.
even though i’ve fallen out of touch with some of my friends, i think about them all of the time, and whenever we talk we just cry over how much we miss each other. it’s like summer camp.
i highly suggest it.
He is talking about Vista Way and there’s nothing you can say to convince me otherwise.
As soon as I read the first one I was like, “Vista Way. It’s Vista Way.”
