This is so great! The biggest stress of the day is trying to get there with everyone and even then it usually doesn’t work out. Awesome job, Disney!
Hi! I'm interested in the DCP and had a few q's. 1. Pros/Cons of the DCP? 2. Whats your role/job and brief description of it? 3. Pros/cons of job? 4. Favorite part of program? 5. Means of transportation and getting food? 6. Roomate/living situation pros/cons? How did you find your roomies? 7. Any other possible advice or tips you could give to a hopeful DCP?
Hello! This is a lot of questions haha so I will do my best to answer! I’ll make sure to keep it short and sweet.
As a head’s up, I did my college program Spring 2011 from January to May.
1. Pros/Cons of the DCP
Pros: Meeting new people, getting to enjoy the parks essentially every day, making connections and overall just having a great time. I could say so much more on this but I am so very thankful that I got the opportunity to participate in my program.
Cons: The hours- I didn’t mind working 5-6 days a week, but I was always closing if I was on Main Street. Which I’m also going to say is a pro as well because everyone else in your CP closes, too, which gives you the opportunity to get to know people your age and that’s how I made most of my friends!
2. What was your role? & a brief description of it?
I was in Photopass during my program. At Disney we refer to it as, “Disney Photo Imaging”. And after my program was over, I went seasonal and stayed in that same department and park. Basically, my job was to capture the memories of the guests as they enjoyed their vacation, and even got to get candids of them as they met the characters. I also answered a ton of guest questions because I was on the streets a lot, and we’re usually the first cast member they can find if they’re lost or confused.
3. Pros/Cons of Photopass?
Pros: I love taking photos, so there was that. I got the opportunity to be trained in a really cool area with Rapunzel and Flynn, and that was amazing. You also get to be so involved with the guests that you get to converse with people from all over. I loved that.
Cons: Being outside all day! I love the weather but during the summer it can be really tough. Especially since you’re sweating, but you get used to it eventually.
4. Favorite part of the program?
So many great memories from my program, this will be tough! I loved getting to hang out with my roommates every night, it was fun getting to come home and everyone would yell your name when you walked in the door. When it comes to work memories, definitely getting to be a villager in the garden with Rapunzel and Flynn. That was by far my favorite area to photograph and become a part of.
5. Means of transportation and getting food?
I drove my car down from Seattle! So I had my car. I never took the CP buses except during traditions when we were told we had to. I would usually go grocery shopping at Walmart on 535 or go to dinner at Downtown Disney (EARL OF SANDWICH!).
6. Roommate/living situation pros/cons? How did you find your roomies?
Pros: I got to live with some really amazing girls and we all hung out together. There was almost always someone home so you were never bored. Kayla and I also pushed our beds together (apparently that’s not allowed haha) and wore the same size every thing, we got to share a lot of clothes and food.
Cons: In every apartment there’s going to be times when someone doesn’t clean up, or someone buts heads, but I can’t really remember any certain instances. I think the biggest con is that you don’t have your own space, so it’s really hard to get any alone time.
We all met online in the Facebook group, and used to Skype EVERY DAY. Seriously. Kayla and I instantly clicked and we decided that we were definitely going to be rooming together. We all decided on the January 10th day, that way we could all go in together and get an apartment together. We had 6 girls all together.
7. Advice for a hopeful DCP?
If you get cold feet before coming, that’s normal. But don’t back out of it. It’s going to be an experience with lots of ups and downs, but if you make an effort down here the benefits will be worth it.
Don’t be discouraged if you get rejected. It happens, I’ve been rejected for a PI every time they come around, but I still keep applying and getting further each time! You never know what will happen.
Smile during your interview and show your enthusiasm Come down here knowing you’re going to work but put time aside to play.
Hope this helps! :)
I finally am off. This whole week. Which means…
I can finally begin my vlog! And do lots of homework…
That being said, any particular topics you want me to discuss?
