dell1862 asked: As for the anon asking about their gay friend I can assure you that it's fine. Many of the guys that go there are gay and just because WDW is in the South doesn't mean that he will get picked on by haters. Nothing to worry about and if something does come up just tell Disney about it and they'll sort things out.

We agree :) Most of my guy friends were gay and they had a wonderful stress free time.

Question

Anonymous asked: I am doing the fall program and have been thinking of buying a motorcycle this summer. Do you know if Disney treats motorcycles the same as cars for DCP cast members? Do you remember anyone having motorcycles down there? Do you think it would be worth it to bring it down?

I did see motorcycles in the parking lot at the apartment complex so I’m sure they do treat them the same. It’s up to you if you want to bring it with you. Just remember Orlando will have more tourists driving around than usual and you do have to go buy groceries and stuff but if you can make it work with just your motorcycle and you’re safe, go for it :) The weather is amazing, I always wished I have my convertible when I lived there cause it’s so pretty lol

Question

Anonymous asked: I know if you do the DCP you get special deals and discounts on resorts, disney cruises, etc. How long do you get these discounts for after your program ends? Because you can't go on a cruise while on your program lol...

Once your Program ends, that is it. You only get the perks while you are a Cast Member.

Question

Anonymous asked: Ok so I have a kind of personal question, that either your or your followers can answer. I want to do the program with my guy best friend. Obviosuly, the living situation is handled, but he's gay and is worried he will stand out in the program because of it and it's in the south. Are there a lot of people like that in the program?

This is Disney. Never have I heard of nor seen someone who is gay “stand out” in the Program. He’ll be fine. Besides, Disney will not tolerate anyone bullying anyone else so if a problem arises, all he has to do is say something and he shouldn’t be scared to do so.

Anonymous asked: How many credit hours did you receive for being on the program?

None. I didn’t take any classes because they wouldn’t have transferred to my college. I did the Program for fun.

Question

Anonymous asked: I know April 18th is supposed to be the date Disney lets people know if they've been accepted or not, but is that everyone or just people that got an interview? I applied March 15th and it has been in "submission" status since then. Thanks

It should have been everyone.

Question

Anonymous asked: This has probably been already asked, but if you go to DCP do you still pay for tuition at your current school? Like how does that work

You only pay tuition if you’re signed up for classes with them. If you aren’t taking classes with your school, by distance learning, I don’t think you have to pay tuition.

Question

Anonymous asked: When you applied for the program, did you put your address for school, or your home address? Thanks so much

We both lived at home so we put our home address. Your address is the address where your mail goes to
