Moving to The Commons

Moving to The Commons
The Commons.  So nice!!

Yeah, got the call from Disney housing this morning and we’ve been assigned to a one bedroom apartment in The Commons!!! Move-in day is Monday, January 6, 2014! So lucky!!!

And, our boyfriends are here to help us move from Chatham Manor over to The Commons!

The complex, built in 1998, covers several acres with clusters of buildings housing about 1000 participants, lakes, and amenities galore. Each apartment features a washer and dryer, fully-stocked kitchen, private telephone line, full-cable TV, and one bathroom. The bedrooms are each shared by two people.

Security is provided 24 hours, and residents must show ID to enter after 10pm. Guests are only permitted when signed in by a resident, and can never remain on the property past 2am – this is VERY strictly enforced.

Transportation is available to work, the theme parks, and Wal*Mart, of course.  The Commons is the first bus stop on the work route, seating is always available. Plenty of parking is available at your doorstep.

Rent is deducted from your paycheck on a weekly basis, $109 weekly per-person for one and two-bedroom units. This amount covers unit rent, utilities, phone service, cable TV (with Comedy Central and MTV!), transportation, recreation, and many other services provided. This amount is automatically deducted weekly from your paycheck.

Two Disney sisters.

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 in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
