WDW College Program
My name is Veronica and I'm 17. I'll be going to college next year and I've been dreaming about being in the Disney College Program ever since I heard about it. I've been a huge disney fan ever since I was really little and its been my ultimate dream to work there. Now I have a question. Hopefully in college I'll be able to major in english and minor in dance. I was just wondering about the different opportunites I would have in the Disney College program. I would love to be in performance or even be a character but besides that what else could I be qualified to do? You're answers are much appreciated and I look forward to hearing from you!
Thanks so much!
operations, food, custodial, merchandise.
You can do entertainment if you audition and make it, so go for that. It's the closest thing you can get to dance haha.
It's not what you're qualified for. When you go the interview, they will ask you what areas of work interest you.
To work in Entertainment, you need to pass an audition, and then later pass more. It's SO worth it, though. I loved working Entertainment. :)
I was a CP for most of 2006 before having my son in 2007 (couldn't fit into the costume anymore with my belly, and I had to leave Face when I started showing) and it's definitely loads of fun. I will admit that I miss it.
ive been dying to work for disney for years. I've always wanted to be a character but I think I'm too short. I'm like 5'3. I've always wanted to be in the Beauty and the Beast show too.
I'm so jealous of you haha.
...I'm 5'2" and I weighed about 115lb soaking wet.
hahaha really? I'm thinking I'm 5'3 but I'm not sure and I've never been over 110 lbs. During the school year I'm usually 100 since I dance every other day. May I ask what character/princess were you?
Alice/Wendy until I started showing. I trained for Alice but did mostly Wendy.
That works, as long as you can fit into the costume. To do face work you just have to look like the "type" because they need to be interchangeable.
After I found out about the height restriction I figured I would be qualified for Wendy or Alice. I think Wendy would be so fun. The one that I met in June was precious. I just hope I have the face and body type.
i'm still not sure what i'm going to do, i'm holding out on attractions!
