Hey there looking at applying for Spring Advantage or even regular Spring 2013 (I'll take either if it means I'm in) also! Looking at Character Attendant, Attractions, or Photopass. I would prefer to do WDW but I don't mind doing Disneyland (will be applying for both resorts). Mostly the same picks for Disneyland but looking at a Resorts option for my last choice at Disneyland. Also a first timer.

Hello Everyone! Glad I found this thread, thought it was too soon!

My names Melissa and I will be graduating this winter! I plan on applying for 2013 as a PI as well as CP for a fallback. I'd like anything in the theatrical stage production areas, including costuming!!

I've done one CP already in 2009 as a MK Bus Ops Resort greeter. I had a wonderful time and I was the happiest i've ever been in my life... and I really feel that Disney is my home! I hope to get to know some of you a lot more over the next couple months!

Feel free to chat

I'm getting so excited about the Spring 2013 College Program too. I already graduated from college last year so I am going to take a class at a local community college this Fall so that I meet the requirements and will be considered a part time college student. I just registered for the class and let me tell you that I have never been this excited to take a class.
My sister and I recently got FL Resident Annual Passes and we have been going to Disney World a lot. I now find myself watching the Cast Members and looking at their name badges to see if they are in the CP. I told my sister after our last trip that I could really see myself living and working at Disney. Applications for Spring 2013 can't come soon enough!

Hey everybody! My name is Christina and I am just wrapping up my freshman year at UCONN. I will be applying for my first CP ever (woot!) for spring 2013. Of course, I've gotta be at WDW! :P As much as I love MK, I am not a night owl and hope I don't end up working super late shifts like that, though I know to expect it lol. I am not sure what roles I would like do. I may end up extending my program, if I like it. Feel free to chat with me!

I didn't want to work super late on mine either I ended up at DTD getting off at like 11 or 12 was normal for me! I think MK might be the only park that keeps you around until 3am

Welcome by the way!

Hi and welcome !!! Would you lifeguard? The water parks close about 5-6pm(ish) every night so their shifts aren't too bad...Just early mornings. Also, I'm not sure if the role I did is still there...it was a "CP Pilot Program" when I started there was only a handful of us... It's called Resort Bus Greeter, it may be under transportation when you apply, but I worked 6-2pm every day and always got my 2 days off a week. It was super fun and you can pick up shifts at other resorts if you want!! I can't think of any others right now that would be "early" mornings...Maybe BBB, since I don't see how children would want a fairy makeover at 9pm? Hope that helps you

It always tickles me when people only take one class! Good luck hopefully we can all get in! (Since there aren't many of us...yet)

Hi everyone!! I saw this thread and I read through just to make sure this wasn't JUST for Spring Adv hopefuls. I'm planning on applying for the Spring 13 program. I actually just applied and got denied for the Fall 12 program. But all is well because I wasn't even initially supposed to apply for fall. But I've known about the DCP for a very long time and I'm so excited to apply again in September . And since I've been reading around the board, I'm flip flopping in my mind whether I want to do the regular or adv program. But I'm a junior at Kent State and I really want to apply for merchandise, character attendant, attractions, and maybe hospitality or vacation planning

Well either way you're def welcome here! I hope you decide to do spring adv since you still wouldn't actually miss but one semester. Unless you were going to make that semester up in the summer or something.

That's the only thing. I'm graduating next spring and the only thing I would ask from the program is about 3 days off so I can fly up and graduate and then come back and finish working. But things will work out

Park Preference

Just curious, if anyone wants to work in a park, which one do you want to work in? I think MK would be nice, but I know you would be working basically all day and night. I think Epcot would be really nice, plus it's my favorite park But I don't think I would mind working in AK.
