The Disney College Program: What It Is And How To Apply

Let me spread some fairy dust and educate you on the Disney College Program

The Disney College Program: What It Is And How To Apply
Taylor Sipos

So as September of last year I was accepted into the Disney College Program. As I started to tell people I realized not many know what it is but once they know they wish they could have applied so here is all you need to know about the program and how to apply.

What Is The Disney College Program?

The Magic!

Basically, The Disney College Program is a paid internship with the company in which you can work in the parks. Where you can be cast in a number of different roles and work in that role for four-seven months or if you choose to stay and extend you can. While you are there working you can also take advantage of the amazing opportunities that Disney provides for CPs or College Participants. Education offerings on a number of different topics including guest services, hospitality, Disney company secrets and many more events that are a once in a lifetime experience.

How Do You Apply?

You Applying For The Program

By clicking on the link it should take you to a page that has loads more information about the program and also lets you apply. There are about four application periods in a year and sometimes you are able to apply for summer but usually if you have done the program before you can do the summer alumni program. There are Fall or Spring terms and depending on which term you get in on there will be a short four-month internship or the extended program which is what I am currently involved in and it is about seven months.

Why Would You Want To Join In On The Magic?

So I have been on my program for a little over two weeks and the time that I have spent here I wouldn't trade for anything. I have met some amazing Disney loving, goal oriented, and fun thriving people. I have gone to the park more times than I probably ever would have in my life. I have spent more time going and doing fun things. I have met a few guests and seen a few magical moments already. I am apart of the magic that I experienced as a child. While my role may not be as interactive as most I have found my own way. My favorite part of the work part is walking out on stage with a smile on my face. It is simple, any cast member can do it, but to me, I feel it makes a difference for the guests.

If you have loved Disney the way I have since you were a child this program is for you. If you just want to work for Disney eventually this program offers you the ability to get into the company and start climbing the ladder to get to where you want to eventually. If you are not really sure what you want to be when you grow up, this program is for you. I feel like the awkward girl who started writing has burst forth from her shell in this program. In fact, my roommate asked how I am awkward. As though it was an insane idea that I could be an awkward little potato person would be inconceivable. This program will push you, work you, encourage you, and will teach you. So if you are up for creating a little magic, join in on the fun and apply.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
