Updated for 2016!!:  2016 DCP Weekly Housing Rents

As we correctly predicted in October 2014 when WDW raised the DCP pay rate for interns from Florida minimum wage ($7.93/hour) to $9/hr.**, Disney has announced housing fee increases for January 2015.

**Some DCP roles, like lifeguarding and attraction positions, get a $1/hr. wage premium.

May 2015 Update:  Minimum pay rate for CPs is now $9.50/hr.!  In July 2016, it goes up to $10.hr.!!

The current fall 2014 housing costs range from $78 to $109 per week depending on the size of the apartment and which apartment complex a participant is assigned to live in during his or her DCP program. Apartments have two to four bedrooms (with two or three participants in each bedroom).

Housing costs are automatically deducted weekly from cast members’ paychecks, so they don’t have to worry about turning in a check at the beginning of the month. This cost includes all utilities such as electricity, cable hookup, waste disposal, recycling, and local phone service; as well as the various resort-style amenities, such as pools, gyms, etc. featured at each complex.

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

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’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.
