Two Disney Sisters

Two Disney 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.

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 Digital 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.

    Wondering if you might be able to help. My daughter has done 2 CP at WDW and is now graduating in May and has recently applied for Fall Advantage. She applied when the app came up but the site kept crashing and now her app is just sitting in “received” for days on end. She’s really frustrated and upset and trying to figure out any way to contact to make sure they see it as she knows it usually doesn’t take this long for a response. Any insight as to what’s happening or how to contact someone? Seems like very little contact for DCP kids.

    • Yes, I’m going to recommend she do something that DCP hates when applicants do….
      she should consider reapplying using a different email address.

      And reapply using a PC computer to submit her app.
      Not her phone (especially an iPhone), not an iPad, and not a Mac computer.

      DCP uses several different servers and it sounds like it got hung up on an old server.
      It still might process, but as the days go by, it becomes more unlikely.

      She should have gotten her WBI within an hour of applying.
      It is possible that based on her being a former cast member, somehow she gets to skip that step.
      If she applies to the Summer Alumni program in early Feb, that will be true.

        Thank you so much for your help!! She will try that. She didn’t appy for the Summer Alum because she wants to stay longer so she applied for the alumn Fall Advantage. She’s hoping to have that parlay into a PI, and then ultimately a full time job. That’s why this is so heartbreaking for her.

  24. My sister did the summer alumni program and loved it. She got assigned to her old merchandise role at DAK and got to work with her friends again. The summer alumni program app opens in 2 weeks.
    She should apply.
    Yes, you can then extend into Fall.
    Only difference is that the summer program has limited roles available.
    We’ll post a new blog when the app opens.
    Here’s the 2018 info: https://collinsrace1.wordpress.com/2018/01/28/2018-dcp-summer-alumni-program/
