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

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

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?

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.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
