The others have been answered as well as I can answer, but for number 3 I just want to note that one of my roommates was a lifeguard at Blizzard Beach, so it's definitely not uncommon for CPs to get it. Another roommate was QSFB at Typhoon Lagoon, if that helps confirm it any. They were FA CPs, but just so you know, it isn't entirely unheard of

I have a question for the future, not this year sadly. I was at college a couple years back before I took off to go work overseas and also in various places (I was in film then). I'm going back this next year, but would I have to wait for a semester before I could apply for CP?

Also, I am wondering how things work with religious issues, and how accommodating Disney is for such?

My understanding of the rule is that you must be currently enrolled at the school in order to participate in the program. So, you can apply during your first semester back for participation in the next semester.

Okay, thanks. I'm hopeful of doing so, since I am going back to work on a business degree, even if I would rather study hospitality (though there are no schools nearby that do hospitality programs). I think I'd take just about anything though in order to get to work at Disney.

The only other concern I have is whether I'd be able to keep up with my own private things like religion, without causing too much of a problem.

I'm not sure what type of religious accommodation you would need. But there is a religious accommodation form where you can request accommodation. Whether it be a certain day off to attend services, or if you cannot handle meat or example. I do not have any experience making such requests but I would assume they would do their best to accommodate you.

How common is it to find people ages 25+ doing the college program?

*Raises hand* I'll be 25. By far those 25+ are in the minority, but they are out there.

I will be 26 when I start the program and will turn 27 in September.

So, I've got a question.
I've recently been accepted into the college program for the fall. However, on my dashboard it currently says "Post-Offer Stage" and I got an email about something that says request for additional information. So I used the link provided and it just asked for my birthday again and that was it. And now when I try to return that page it says "This form has been completed for this candidate." However, nothing has changed on my dashboard. Is it supposed to, or did I do something wrong?

Nope that's all it asks for! About 3 weeks from your arrival date they will send you a link asking for more info again!

I applied for the Fall Advantage program, and I'm still "pending". I was wondering do they normally make you wait 50 days then reject you? I'm so stressed about this waiting game

Unfortunately, yes. That does happen, and it is very likely that the majority of the people still pending will not get an offer.

If you do not get an offer this time and you are still eligible to apply next time you should do so. In the mean time try to get some more work experience if you have very little and research more about the program and types of interview questions they ask.

If I haven't been accepted yet should I assume I won't get in?

Not at all! I knew of several people on my program who were accepted on the final day. Just gotta stay positive!
