Question

apryl-does-disney said: In attractions, it depends on where you're placed for whether you work multiple attractions. For example, I worked at Splash Mountain and only Splash Mountain. However, in Fantasyland, if you work Mickey's Philharmonic, you also work the Carrousel and Princess Fairytale Hall. I know the question was for Disneyland, but this is how it is in WDW and I can't imagine it would be terribly different in DLR!

Thanks for helping!

Question

Anonymous said: kind of a morbid question, while you're on your program if a family member dies, how much time do you get to come home?

That’s up to management so you would have to talk to your managers if an event like this does happen.

Question

Anonymous said: Other than check in/move in and Traditions, what happens in the days between when you arrive but before your first day working?

The one day between check in (day 1) and Traditions (usually day 3) is a free day for you to get settled and get into the Disney Look if you’ve been told to change your hair or whatever at Casting (day 1).

Anonymous said: hiii (: I just got my acceptance into DCP, and I will be going to Disneyland, I know most people go to WDW and so its probably easier to meet people to room with before you go, do you have any advice for meeting people to room with prior to getting there?

Congratulations! Facebook, that’s how I hear a lot of people find and meet roommates.

Anonymous said: Just got accepted for Spring Advantage 2015 in Disneyland for attractions. Just curious whether I'll be working at just one ride or moving around to multiple rides throughout the semester?

I know you would move around to different tasks within an attraction. I would think you would move around to multiple attractions as well but I am not too sure on that.

Question

Anonymous said: do you know anything about the 2015 career start program? my sister did it about four years ago and I'm thinking about doing it after I graduate high school, but the website is down & you can't submit applications for it. no one's really talking about it online so i'm getting a bit worried that it's not available anymore.

I’m not finding anything on the Disney Career Start Program, just Disney College Program which applications are still open.

Anonymous said: If I applied immediately after applications opened up and still have not received an invitation does that mean I'm likely getting rejected?

No. You have a 50/50 chance just like everyone else.

Question with 1 note

Anonymous said: Hello I recently got accepted for spring 2015 and I am wondering if I can ask to extend my program to do the spring advantage? I think I heard of people doing that but I wasn't sure. If so how do I go about doing that?

Yes you can. You’ll get an email during your Program on how to go about extending your Program.
