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.

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 a local 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.
