UPDATED RENT INCREASES JANUARY 1, 2017:
The DCP apartments at Disney World have one to four bedrooms, with two or three participants in each bedroom.
Rent costs are automatically deducted weekly from each cast members’ paychecks, so you don’t have to worry about turning in a check at the beginning of the month. (If you don’t work enough hours in a week, you can call the Front Office and pay your rent over the phone.)
The apartment rent includes all utilities such as electricity, cable hookup, wifi (S-L-O-W!), waste disposal, recycling, heat/AC, and local phone service; gated security; free bus transportation to and from work; as well as the various resort-style amenities, such as pools, hot tubs, outdoor grills, gyms, basketball, etc. available at each housing complex.
Sign up as soon as you’re accepted to the DCP for what type of apartment size you want and where you want to live like I did: Filling out my DORMS form. (Be aware, there is no guarantee…I literally got my last housing choice!)
Bonus Tip: Disney Housing offers a free monthly Housing Event social for all residents. Lots of free food, music and dancing, and fun character meet and greets!

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program 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.
