Our Year Working at Disney World:  Two sisters exploring the ups and downs of Disney World!

Caroline: The main writer of this blog, graduated with a BA degree in history and secondary education from the University of Colorado at Boulder in May 2015. She is currently working as a 7th grade Social Studies teacher.

Her love for all things Disney, and desire to grow up to be a Disney princess, is the reason why she did the DCP program. Her role for all three DCP programs was Merchandise at Discovery Island in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Caroline is a Disney Cast Member again!

May 2015 Update:  Caroline has returned to WDW for the 2015 Summer DCP Alumni program! Her new role is back at DAK in a merchandise role again (carts & strollers).

And, she’s written a new book! Look for it March 2018!

A new Disney chapter begins...

May 2015:  A new Disney chapter begins for Caroline…back at Traditions again.

Elly: The main photographer and a contributor to this blog, has completed her masters degree at Colorado State University in Public Communications. She is currently working as a Social Media Manager for national, billion dollar real estate company.

Her motivation for doing the DCP program was the promise of unlimited pin trading! She worked for a year as a Relief Coordinator at Downtown Disney, now Disney Springs.

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.

  21. Caitlin says:

    Hi! I always end up coming to you guys for your advice! If you get one reprimand on your program for attendance; will Disney rehire you in the future? I know it depends on each castember and I currently have 5 four keys cards but does it look bad to have one reprimand if your tying to get rehired by Disney in a year?
