The Disney College has so much to offer, program wise. Not only do you get to work at The Happiest Place on Earth but you get to make and meet some of the best friends and people that there are.
The program offers so many fun events too. You can expect to do anything from playing at Typhoon Lagoon until all hours of the night, to celebrating Cinco de Mayo with Donald and the other members of Los Tres Caballeros. One of my favorite events that the Disney College Program offers is called Night of Stars.
Night of Stars is a talent contest made specially for Disney College Program participants. This competition takes place in Disney’s Hollywood Studios in a special and secluded theater or at least a theater I knew nothing about. The entrance to this theater is at the end of Streets of America, in between Streets of America and Lights Motors Action.
Prior to entering the theater you had to show your Disney ID and your housing ID to prove that you were a Disney College Program participant. Once you have showed the working Event Cast Members your IDs you are then given a colored wristband to wear into the theater to once again prove you are a DCP participant. Once inside and seated you will soon start to see how many people are in this amazing program. This once huge and empty theater fills incredibly fast with your friends and work peers from all across the Walt Disney World Resort.
Now that the theater is filled you are introduced to your Emcee. At ours we had Sarah Jessica Barker. She was hilarious and made the entire audience laugh with jokes relevant to the
times, like anything Kardashian and Lindsey
Lohan. After she was done with her jokes we met our hosts of the evening, Norman Vossschulte and Jennifer Mason the 2011-2012 Walt Disney World Ambassadors. Along with them the judges panel consisted of different Leaders and Cooperate Cast Members throughout Walt Disney World.
Now that the show has begun you are now witnessing what your fellow peers can do. The talent contest is made up of Singers, Dancers, Acrobatics, and many, many more. Honestly if you can dream it, it was there. No talent was shot down it seemed.
In all, the Night of Stars competition is an incredible experience and a very neat thing to offer CPs. I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about an event that the Disney College Program offers.
Hey everyone! I had a question for all of you. Have you ever made magic at Walt Disney World? Did you know you can? Its true!! Have you ever had an amazing experience with a Cast Member who made you and your party feel so wonderful about being in Disney? They tell you Happy Birthday or Happy Anniversary or maybe greet a young little girl as a Princess. They help you with any and all questions that you may have about the parks and resorts. They go out of their way to be sure that you are having the most magical time in the most Magical Place on Earth. If you see or experience a Cast Member doing such a great job you can make some magic for them! How? Its simple, be sure you get their name and if you see some people in that same area wearing business casual clothing and a Disney nametage. These are the go-to people to tell about your magical Cast Member!
What does telling someone about a magical Cast Member do? When you tell someone that a Cast Member is doing a great job they will give that Cast Member a reward that we like to call a Great Service Fanatic, or GSF. What this does is lets everyone know that they are taking pride in their work and staying magical for the guests. This will also go on their record card and has a “gold star” type effect for anything that Cast Member might want to do down the road such as, transfer roles.
Creating magic is what we love to do here at Disney and if it wasn’t for all of you wonderful guests our job would just be a job!
“You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.”- Walt Disney
- 2 types of ID (driver’s license, social security card, make sure your SSC is NOT LAMINATED, passport, birth certificate…)
- If you are driving be sure you have your registration, proof of insurance, and know your license plate number. Also be sure YOUR NAME is on your proof of insurance somewhere, and make sure even if your car insurance is through your parents policy, that you put it into your own name, they do not care where it just has to be on it. If you don’t have you name on it just tell your insurance provider that you need your name on your proof of insurance to prove to Disney that you can drive your vehicle.
- Be sure to have your On-Boarding Paperwork!! This is a must have to complete your check-in.
That is all that you will need, beside your entire move in items! I hope you all have a great check-in and a great program!
