Two Girls

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

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.

    Hi!

    Just wondering if there are any DCP blogs or vlogs that you particularly like and/or follow.

    Thanks!

    • Our friend was accepted into the Disneyland DCP program (Fall 2015) and we follow her blog as she is getting ready to move to CA next month.

      We follow a few non-DCP blogs, especially the Disney Food Blog and Inside the Magic.

      As a videographer myself, I haven’t found a good DCP vblog…the posts are generally way too long (7-10 minutes!) and need serious editing, better lighting, better audio, less camera jumping around, etc. That’s too bad because I think there’s a real niche if someone would post 30 second (or less) blogs of what’s new or what’s going on.

      Even someone doing a 15 second daily video post of “Crowds Today at Work” would get a huge following!
