    Hi! I am doing the dcp this spring and I am super excited. I’ve been checking the block out dates and I saw that hollywood studios is blocked out all of January. What is the likelihood that we will get blocked out during Easter/spring break? That’s when my family is going to visit and I’m worried I won’t be able to let them use the comp passes.

    • Easter is on April 12, 2020.

      Phase 2 of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – The Rise of the Resistance – isn’t opening until Feb 2020 at Disney World.
      (At Disneyland, it’s opening January 17, 2020.)
      This means that DHS will be blocked out all of Feb – March – April at least.

      But, the other parks and the water water won’t be blocked, except for MK which is always blocked for using guest passes Easter Week.
      Congrats on being accepted into the DCP!
      You’re going to love it!
      Have a magical day!

    Do you think Disney will call back the CPs that were let go so abruptly when the parks closed? My daughter was days away from putting in a transfer to stay on as an employee and was heartbroken. She’s not eligible for any more programs as she has graduated and already did a few. She decided to stay down there and ride it out but wonder what her chances are that they will give those kids a shot.

    • We wish we had good news for you. We don’t think so. CPs are temporary employees. Disney hasn’t called back all the full time and part time cast members that were furloughed in March. We think the Spring 2020 and Fall Advantage 2020 CPs are out of luck. If they are in Good Standing with the company, they can apply again for the Spring 2021 program. We encourage your daughter to apply for the Spring 2021 program if she’s interested. It’s worth a try.

        Thanks..unfortunately, she won’t qualify for any more programs since she already graduated. They had them fill out a survey and told them they would be contacted to return, so it just seems kind of unfair to bring in new CPs without giving the ones termed a chance to come back first. Thanks for your input. She moved down there with the intention of staying on so she’s just waiting out her lease at this point.

  43. Because of all the turmoil, I’m expecting the DCP will change the “must have graduated within 6 months” requirement to “must have graduated within the past 12 months.”

    ICYMI:
    As reported by The Orlando Sentinel, Local 362’s union leader Eric Clinton says furloughed cast members will be called back to work starting mid-June.
    According to Clinton, “Beginning in early June, all Disney full-time attractions and custodian workers, as well as a significant number of part-timers, will get called back to work.”
    There is a new need for cast members who will maintain social distancing in wait lines while guests wait for their temperatures to be taken prior to entering the parks. Also new is the need to clean ride vehicles between guest loading and also the areas around ride queues. This cleaning will be done by attraction cast members, not custodial.
    “There’s going to be a massive need for attractions workers across property. There’s going to be a lot of work that needs to be done.” Clinton said.
    The Disney College Program and Disney World’s cultural ambassadors program at Epcot were canceled this spring and reportedly aren’t likely to resume anytime soon according to Clinton. With travel restrictions in place around the world, it may be hard for some of these cast members to return to Orlando this year.
    He also mentioned that the cultural ambassadors will be replaced by local cast members at theme park reopening.
