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.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
