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!

thedisneyden:

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

CALLING ALL CURRENT AND FORMER ATTRACTIONS CMs

I’m doing a little research about what it’s like to work Attractions in WDW. All Attractions, too, not just rides.

If you’d like to help me out, please answer the following questions either in my inbox or when reblogging this post. 

1. What is/was your Attraction(s)?

2. Did you like your area?

3. Best thing about working at your Attraction?

4. Worst thing about working your Attraction?

5. If you’ve worked at more than one location, which was your favorite and least favorite. Bonus points for why!

Thank you in advance!

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?

fantasylanded:

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.”

Disney leaves out a few things when you get hired:

They forget to inform you about the long hours, the crappy pay, and the obnoxious guests

They fail to mention your costume won’t breathe and you’ll always be uncomfortable because your pants never fit

They don’t tell you missing the holidays…

This was seriously about to piss me off, and then I smiled so wide it hurt.

One of the greatest perks of working for Disney is getting free admission into the parks whenever you want. But when playing at the parks or resorts, it’s important to uphold certain behavior standards. Here is my list of Do’s and Don’ts for off-duty Cast Members.

DON’T:

  • openly announce the…

recoursing asked: i think its cool that you're not afraid to write about the hard things of working at the dcp too. no one should feel like they have to pretend like everything is completely great to make sure other people will still apply to go there. but the thing about the dcp is the good outweighs the bad so it doesn't even matter! please keep writing about your full experience, the good and the bad, because it's honest and interesting.

Thank you. It was always really important to me to be honest when I was blogging about my program, and I’m continuing to do so now that I’m a permanent CM. Many people don’t realize how much work goes along with the DCP, but that’s what it is. We work while others play. 

Anonymous asked: What transport can a DCP use when travelling to and from the parks?

If you don’t want to bring a car there are (CP only) buses available at the apartment complexes for you to use. They go to all of the parks, hotels, water parks, and Downtown Disney, as well as Walmart, Publix, the post office, and the Florida Mall. Upon arrival Housing provides you with a bus schedule and there’s now a smartphone app that shows the buses current locations and estimated arrival times.

*note that this is for the WDW College Program
