The application process:

Step 1:  Fill out the simple online job application. You’ll have to provide school info, previous work experience, and rank the Disney CP roles (jobs) from No Interest to High Interest.  Be honest! If you have No Interest in Lifeguarding, don’t mark it as High Interest!

STOP:  Learn more about the DCP roles first!  Fun DCP Roles to Consider

Step 2:  You’ll be invited by email, sometimes within the hour if the Disney servers aren’t busy!, to take a web-based interview (WBI).

This step is actually pretty easy and typical of all job applications nowadays.

It’s simple ‘what would you do’ personality questions, and asks you about your work ethic. It’s actually a lot of the same questions repeated, just worded differently. Our advice is to be consistent!

WBI Tips:

  1. Be consistent in your answers.
  2. Try to only answer “strongly agree” or “strongly disagree.”
  3. Relate all the questions to you in work situations, not personal ones.
  4. Don’t rush!  Disney says that it will take 40 minutes to complete the WBI, but it should only take you about 20.  However, be sure of your answers as you can’t go back and change them!

Example WBI questions (rate Strongly Disagree to Strongly Agree, scale of 1 to 5):

I am lazy

I always finish tasks well before I need to

I tend to get along with others

I work better by myself

I am always on time

I sometimes get mad for no reason

All people are dishonest

I am dependable

I don’t mind a messy work area

People look to me for guidance

I like group projects


dcpOur Simple Advice:  It’s very easy to see what kind of future cast member Disney is looking for.

Hint:  Happy, hardworking, neat college students! 

If you consider yourself an angry, lone wolf person who likes to sleep in and skip work…well, guess what…Disney has NO job for you!

It amazes us that people actual fail the WBI – sometimes many times!

If you fail, you won’t be able to apply to the DCP again for 6 months!!

Good Luck!


The next step…

Congratulations…you’ve passed the WBI and been invited to a Phone Interview (PI)!!

Our advice:  Prepare, Prepare, Prepare!!!  Take the call while standing with a smile on your face!

    1. This is not good.

      We recommend that you apply again using a different email address, i.e., start from the very beginning with a new logon username and password.
      Take it slow, make sure that you have a good internet connection.
      You should get a WBI within 60 minutes after submitting.


  1. The two questions that I would say I would have no idea how to answer would be: I work better by myself and I like group projects? Any advice? Thanks!!
