Anonymous asked: are we supposed to print out our new hire paperwork and take them to check-in?
They will have the paperwork there for you but if you want to make the progress faster and smoother take it all with you. The worst thing that can happen is you have to redo them there, no harm.
caitrosebishop asked: Hi! I'm sure you've answered this before, but what was your job in the DCP? And also, were there a lot, if any, college freshmen doing the DCP?
Freshmen, I’m not sure. I’m sure they were there.
We both worked merchandise. My home was Mouse Gear in EPCOT but I also worked at Everest in Animal Kingdom and at World of Disney in Downtown Disney.
Jasmine worked on Main Street in Magic Kingdom and she moved through all those shops on the right side if I remember correctly.
Anonymous asked: Is it possible to get a role in the Great Movie Ride attraction as a DCP cast member? If not, is it possible to get any character attraction role, i.e. Tower of Terror, Haunted Mansion, or GMR?
Yes, many DCPs work in the Great Movie Ride! And all the other ones you have mentioned

Anonymous asked: Hi! So I was accepted for the role of custodial in Spring Advantage 2014. I'm nervous about doing this role just because I've heard mixed reviews on it. I was just wondering what you heard exactly and if you would recommend this role.
I actually had one friend who did the Custodial role and he loved it! Yes you are usually always cleaning but whenever I was playing in the parks, most of the Custodials seemed like they were having fun. Unfortunately, I don’t know much about the Role in general. Hopefully you will love it though! Enjoy your Program and have a magical time!

Anonymous asked: Hey I'm planning on applying for Fall Advantage 2014 and I was just wondering how popular Concierge is? I'm quite good with working with people and I was either thinking that or Attractions would be a good fit for me. But I know attractions is very popular.. So I thought that maybe it might be a little bit easier for me to get into the program if Concierge is what I wanted the most? Thanks so much :)
I don’t hear about too many people doing Concierge. I think a lot of people would rather work in the Parks than at the Resorts so you could have a great chance of getting that Role when you apply. If you are good with people Merchandise is also another Role you could potentially rank as one of the ones you’d like to do.
Anonymous asked: In your opinion or experience with friends or people you know, how often or likely is it people stay on after their program and work with the company either in a field related to their cp role or just in general?
A lot of people choose to stay after their Program ends. Some stay on as seasonal in the Role they did as a DCPer and some choose to train in a different Role. If they are able to move to Orlando they wait to become regular Cast Members. I had one friend who was seasonal in Merchandise and became a regular Cast Member in an entirely different Role.
