Our Year Working at Disney World:  Two sisters exploring the ups and downs of Disney World!

Caroline: The main writer of this blog, graduated with a BA degree in history and secondary education from the University of Colorado at Boulder in May 2015. She is currently working as a 7th grade Social Studies teacher.

Her love for all things Disney, and desire to grow up to be a Disney princess, is the reason why she did the DCP program. Her role for all three DCP programs was Merchandise at Discovery Island in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Caroline is a Disney Cast Member again!

May 2015 Update:  Caroline has returned to WDW for the 2015 Summer DCP Alumni program! Her new role is back at DAK in a merchandise role again (carts & strollers).

And, she’s written a new book! Look for it March 2018!

A new Disney chapter begins...

May 2015:  A new Disney chapter begins for Caroline…back at Traditions again.

Elly: The main photographer and a contributor to this blog, has completed her masters degree at Colorado State University in Public Communications. She is currently working as a Social Media Manager for national, billion dollar real estate company.

Her motivation for doing the DCP program was the promise of unlimited pin trading! She worked for a year as a Relief Coordinator at Downtown Disney, now Disney Springs.

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 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.

  42. Jeffrey says:

    I am going to Magic Kingdom in November 2017 and will be using Disney Employee free passes. I am concerned that we cannot use fastpass is this true?


    • No, this is not true!
      But, you have to hop on and book your Fast Passes as soon as you can.

      I’m assuming you’re not going Thanksgiving Week.
      The Magic Kingdom will be blocked out for using guest passes and might be blocked out for self admission for cast members.
      The 2 weeks after Halloween and before Thanksgiving are actually slow times (relatively).
      You should have no problem getting the Fast Passes that you want.
      Have a magical day!
