I will be off to college in a bit and I'm wondering if anyone on here has done the Disney College Program? Is it worth it? And will it help if I want to work for the company?

My daughter did it last semester at WDW. She was in entertainment and LOVED it!! She worked a lot of hours, learned a lot and had a GREAT time meeting other college students from around the country. Some extended their semester, others went part time...some plan on going back to work there forever :). I would say if you love Disney go for it!  You only live once and if you're given the opportunity to do something that not everyone gets to do, take advantage of it! 🎒🎠 - brittandkell  487.3 #436 7:58PM
Thank you so much for the insight! - tiffairydust  19.8 #7376 8:16PM
I did the CP and LOVED it! It's an excellent opportunity, and I learned so much! I connected with so many people and made a lot of friends. Feel free to let me know if you have any specific questions about the program, i'd be happy to help :) - msflashie  18.3 #7705 8:33PM

DM Baseballmickey_CM. He did the college program and has been working at DL for 2 years now. He has a lot of good info on it too - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #162 9:21PM

The Disney College Program is a great way to get into the company. Since it does require a lot of hours and work, I would not recommend taking it while you are also taking classes at your own college ( I did that and I was burned out by the end). So I would highly recommend either applying when you're about to graduate and do it after graduation or take a semester off for it. Other than that, it was a great way to learn about the company from the parks to TV networks to the services we offer around the world and a chance to work and network within the park and your workplace. - BaseballMickey_CM  7560.9 #11 10:57PM
Good to know! :) thanks a bunch! - tiffairydust  19.8 #7376 6:35AM
I did college program in both WDW and DLR. I loved my expended in both parks. It's a great way to get started and after the program ends you can choose to stay (provided you weren't horrible and your department has openings πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚). The college program website has the best info.  - lostgirl7988  697.8 #278 11:06PM
I just got accepted into the Disneyland program! Just did WDW and I currently work at the Disney store, if you want to succeed in the company start here! Plus credit for school!  - DisneyTrueLove  8.1 #12685 11:57PM
