  • [Question] WDW Disney College Program application process?

    Hi guys!

    Ok, I'm in the process of applying for the DCP. I've done the application, the web interview, and I had my phone interview two days ago. I'm currently waiting for up to two weeks to hear the results of my phone interview, and I was just wondering (assuming I make it to the next round) what is next? I can see on my dashboard that there are eight steps, but you know it doesn't tell me what any of them are.

    I'm hoping to get in either at the Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique, as a character attendant, or in costuming. Have any of you done any of those jobs? And if so, did you love them or hate them?

    Thank you so much for your help you guys! I don't know anyone outside of the internet that had done the DCP before, so I have no where else to go with all my questions.

    -Melanie

    Unfortunately the next process is just being patient (and lots of waiting). While the announcement can come in as little as 1.5-2 weeks, it can also take a lot longer (I've seen people wait over 2 months. My longest was 6.5 weeks). Then once you know (and it's good news), you accept the program and pick arrival/departure dates.

    For those roles, I've done character attendant before. I really enjoy it

      Thanks Joanna! I'm in the second week of waiting now, and it's killing me, but I'm trying to tell myself to be patient, if it's meant to be then it will happen.

      Im glad you liked the character attendant role! What/which character(s) were you with?

        The user toonaspie here worked in costuming for DCP - you could compare notes there. Pretty sure it was that user.. or tooglb or spelling I can't remember

          Oh lots! I've worked all over all 4 parks (as well as one shift at Mickey's Backyard BBQ at Ft. Wilderness). Off the top of my head, I've worked with: Mickey and Minnie, Chip and Dale, the Pooh characters, Woody and Buzz, Woody and Jessie, Alice and Mad Hatter, Castle show (both regular, and Christmas show), Lightning McQueen and Mater, Tink and friends, among others
