We were excited to see Woody and Jesse from Toy Story over at critter country by Splash Mountain.
Our very first DCP housing event at Chatham Square was with Woody and the gang too!
At about that time (August 2013), a meme went viral that shouting “Andy’s coming!” to Toy Story characters at any Disney theme park would cause them to stop and drop.
From a CP working at the time: The characters USED to drop to the ground when someone yelled “Andy’s coming.” As of the last week or so, however, they no longer do this. This is because EVERYONE found out about it at the same time (when that meme went viral) and now people are shouting this about 50 times per hour, as opposed to hearing it once or twice a day, like before. The characters would spend all their time on the ground if they continued to do it!
Disney says that for ‘safety’ reasons, the characters will no longer drop to the pavement. But, that doesn’t stop people from yelling it at them!
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.
