My last two weeks working as a CP at DTD were a lot of work. I tried to put in for time off because my parents were coming and we were moving out of our apartment, but Disney Scheduling denied it. I worked 7 of my last 9 days!
I was scheduled for a mix of working Tren-D merchandise at DTD, and also as a Zone 1 Coordinator at DTD.
The Spring 2014 DCP program officially ended on May 9th and thankfully Scheduling didn’t schedule me all the way through until then. I worked with another CP who also had been there for a year. She had a plane ticket to fly home but couldn’t get out of her last night of work, so she got “restricted rehire” status for not working her last 6 hour shift…after being there a year! 😦
But, I did get a chance to say goodbye to all my friends and coworkers. It was a fun year.
We’ve written a book about our year working at Disney World in the Disney College Program: Two Girls and a Mouse Tale. It’s filled with advice about the DCP program and how to get the most out of your internship.
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and wrote about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney. We give advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship at Disney, 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.
