Little Things You Appreciate During Your DCP Internship

Here’s a random list of things we appreciated every day at WDW:

Seeing the Cinderella Castle all the time


Cinderella Castle in the morning sunlight.

Really, how many people have a castle at their workplace?

Seeing/hearing fireworks every night

Seeing Wishes never gets old!  Or, if it’s 9pm, that noise must be from Epcot’s Illuminations fireworks.

The Music of the Parks


The Little Mermaid ride…great music!!!

Whether you’re at a Park or a Disney resort, music is playing everywhere.  ♪ ♫ ♬ Under the sea… ♪ ♫

The Monorail

Can’t think of anywhere else where you can ride a monorail all day…for free!

Disney Smells

Are those sugar cookies I’m smelling???

There is just something about the way the all the Parks, attractions and Disney resorts smell…so good!  If you’re ever able to be on Main Street during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party with the smell of cookies baking or peppermint candy canes in the air…yum!

Runner ups:  The smell of oranges while riding Soarin’ and the smell of Rome burning while riding Spaceship Earth.

Ahhh, smell the oranges....

Ahhh, smell the oranges….

Ahhh...the smell of Rome burning...

Ahhh…the smell of Rome burning…

Disney Snacks

Dole Whip, Mickey Waffles, Mickey Bars, churritoes, decorated candy apples, French macaroons, and any Mickey bakery snacks…need we say more?

We love WDW cotton candy!

Water Rides on a Hot Day

Pirates of the Caribbean, Splash Mountain, It’s a small world, Kali River Rapids Run, Maelstrom, and even Living with the Land.  It’s all good!

Self-Flushing Toilets

Enough said.



The minute you graduate and leave the DCP program, we guarantee that you will miss it all, so enjoy it now!:)

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We 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.
