It’s like the time I was in the shower and realized there were five different razors and I was just like…what?
I’m doing God’s work here! Yesterday I kicked two nekkid people out of a garden!

HAVING FORTY-SEVEN ALLERGIES SUCKS LIKE AN ORECK.
It was the Disney College Program! I did two internships, and I was a representative for the program. SO I CAN ANSWER LIKE ALL YOUR QUESTIONS.
You can work at either WDW in Florida or DL in California, but trust me, you want to do WDW. So much better. And you can work anywhere on property- rides, stores, restaurants, resorts, performing, anything. It’s a paid internship; it’s minimum wage, but still. Paid!
They have apartment complexes specifically for CPs (you can have one to seven roommates) and a bus system that takes you everywhere on property as well as Walmart, the mall, etc.
You can also take classes that, for some schools, will transfer as credit. And some schools give you internship credit too.
The program is really, really fun, and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to take a semester off but do something that will look super awesome on a resume.
I worked my first CP in the spring of 2006 as a Tour Guide on the Great Movie Ride, and my second in the summer of 2009 at Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage, High School Musical 3: School’s Out! Pep Rally, Fantasmic! and the Pixar Block Party Bash parade. Disney’s Hollywood Studios is totally my jam.
And as a CP CM you get all sorts of perks and discounts. Suddenly everyone will want to be your best friend…
And also, when you work parade and have to pull up the tape afterwards, you can make really cool Mickey-shaped tape balls. So that’s a perk.
