Walt Disney World Summer Alumni Program Packing List


May 26, 2015!!!!

I have barely had a minute to stop and think about everything I need to do before leaving for WDW. I was super gung-ho about everything when I was first accepted. I immediately got out all my Disney summer shirts and I bought a bunch of black socks….and then didn’t touch my suitcases again. For two months!  Haha.

Unfortunately, I gave away my twin sheets last year when I left Disney.  My current plan is to steal my brother’s sheets before I go. Dark grey isn’t really my style, but I think I can live with them for 2 months. Also, I still don’t have a comforter. Frankly, don’t have room in my two suitcases for that, so I might just bring a small blanket to use instead.

The one thing I KNOW I’m bringing is my Snuggie! I can’t nap without it! 😉

Mom thinks I’ll be too hot to use it (Florida summer – I know!), but I can’t go without it!

Feeling some Snuggie Love

I keep remembering and packing random things in my suitcases. I don’t want to forget an extension cord or a small nonstick pan for eggs!  Packed those items away last night.

The most important thing I MUST remember for this program is that I will only be there for two months!

It’s not like last time where I could justify packing up half my bedroom and closet to bring for 6 months. Frankly, I didn’t need 3/4ths of the crap I brought down last program. (Mostly because I bought a lot of new stuff and clothes last time using my 20-40% Disney merchandise discount! Haha

2 suitcases (50 lbs. each) + 1 carry-on.  :(

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