The Disney College Program interview is a big deal amongst potential CP’s. If you are currently in the process of “studying” for the interview, writing an outline for the interview, or simply want to look over potential questions, this post is for you. In the post I decided to share the questions, not an outline of what your answers should be. Remember, your answers need to be unique to you. These recruiters have done this for a while and are pretty good at sensing if you’ve looked at questions. Be unique and stand out as a potential CP, I promise it’s a good idea!

Hopefully this post was helpful to you! If you noticed your role wasn’t listed or you know of other questions I should add within the list, please let me know in the comments below! If you are preparing for your phone interview, I wish you the best of luck! You will do great, promise!

The Disney College Program application process is filled with lots and lots of waiting. Whether you are waiting 15 minutes for an e-mail or 15 days to hear back, each wait is full of consistently thinking of when that e-mail will come to you. While I can’t give you any advice on how to put your phone away so you stop refreshing your e-mail for DORMS updates, I can give you some tips on what you can do after getting your acceptance. Many of these things should be done before you applied to begin with, but this serves as a way to follow-up and make sure everything is lined up.

Talk to your advisor about internship credit/how it will affect you academically

Depending on your school, some will offer internship credits, some will require you to continue to take a full course load, some have a co-op place holder, and maybe even offers things not on this list, but those listed are the most common. Your advisor should have all of the information on what you need to do to make sure that you are set to go to your college program. Before going into this meeting, you need to know what your goal is going into the DCP. Are you okay getting no credit, graduating late, etc.? Your advisor will let you know what your options are and how things will go if you go to the program. I had a place holder class, got no credit, and will be graduating a semester later. Personally, I think it’s all worth it.

Find out if Disney school courses will transfer to your school

This is also something that needs to be addressed at your meeting with your advisor. Make sure you have printed the list of courses that Disney offers during the program and take it to the meeting to review with your advisor. For me personally, none of these courses would count for credit for me, but many people I’ve met they’ve received credit for courses that align with their major. For example, I know a handful of hospitality management majors who are getting credit for Disney’s hospitality class.

Talk to your financial aid office about student loans and financial aid

If you use student loans or financial aid during college, make sure to talk to someone in the financial aid office about how everything will work out for you if you accept the program. This is something that differs person to person and definitely something you have to make sure is covered early on before you head out for your program.

Ask how you will be able to sign up for courses for the following semester

Make sure that you talk to your advisor or the registrar about how you will be able to sign up for classes next semester. If you are taking classes through your university while you are on your program, there should be something specifically set up for you through your university, but if you are going on internship credit, not for credit, or on a co-op type thing, this is definitely something you should research. For me personally, I had to talk to my advisor about what classes I plan to take Fall 2017 since I’m doing the program in Spring 2017 and I will be given the okay to get online to sign up for classes. This is definitely a blessing considering the fact that it will allow me to get into the classes that I desperately need.

Talk to your landlord about being released from your lease/subleasing/reassigning/etc.

I recently saw a frantic post by someone on the Facebook page that they hadn’t even thought about their apartment and finding someone to take over their lease. This is once again something that will vary person to person in how it can be done. I’d never heard of just being released from a lease before joining the DCP Facebook page because subleasing and reassigning where the only things I’d heard of. Definitely make sure to e-mail, call, or set up a meeting with your land lord to make sure you understand the steps for getting your lease situated.

Plan your travel method to Disney

Are you going to drive, fly, go by train, etc. If you plan on flying, I advise that you buy plane tickets as soon as you know your dates to get the lowest rates that you can. If you are driving, start planning if you are going to do all of the driving in one long day or break it up between several days. And definitely make sure to get your hotel booked. If you book early, many of the resorts on property such as Art of Animation and All Star resorts.

Find roommates or at least start talking to people

As soon as I knew my dates I jumped onto the DCP Facebook page and posted that I was accepted and wanted to find some roommates. While there are no guarantees through Disney that you will get an apartment with everyone you matched with, it is fun to spend time getting to know other people who are hoping to do the program as well. And you never know, sometimes a pair of 8 roommates all end up together.

Plan outfits for traditions

Do a little bit of research on the Disney look and then check your closet to see what you own that goes along with the guidelines. As a girly girl myself, laying out potential outfits definitely made the fact that I was going to leave for the program much more real. And let’s be honest here, made the actual process of picking out my traditions outfit much faster and less painless.

Look into restaurants/resorts to visit during your program

Once I knew my dates I jumped online and made reservations for several restaurants during the program. I was set on dining at Cinderella’s Royal Table and Be Our Guest, so those reservations were actually part of my Christmas present before I left for the program. I also looked into the resorts I hope to stay at while I am on my program and can use my discount.

Think about your bucket list

I’m a planner, so I had to plan my bucket list months in advance. While I don’t know if I’ll be able to cross everything off, at least I have an idea of where I’d like to start. And hey, I might get to Disney and laugh and realize my list should look completely different.

Have you applied to the Disney College Program? What did you do to hold yourself over during the wait after the phone interview? Is there anything you would add to this list? If you have applied and are waiting, which of these tips do you hope to use?

The DCP phone interview. Probably the most stressful part of the already stressful application process. If you are a part of the Facebook pages during the interview process, I wish you luck. The pages blow up with people flipping out about a late phone call, fearing NLIC, feeling they totally nailed it, and even questioning if they should change their interview time because of something that has come up. You read on the forums about people writing 8 pages of notes before going into the interview. Today, I’m here to tell you the do’s and don’ts of the DCP phone interview.

Do: Look over potential interview questions

Being prepared for questions that could come your way during an interview is always important. In fact, I have a list of almost 150 questions that you could be asked during your phone interview. Be sure to look over the general questions that you could be asked and potential questions for every role that you preferenced. None of us really know how Disney choses what roles they will interview you on, so be prepared for anything. You can’t always rely on the fact that you will be interviewed on your top roles, so be prepared and know questions you could be asked about other roles.

Don’t: Follow someone else’s interview answers

On the Facebook pages and multiple blogs you will find how people suggest you should answer the questions. Don’t follow those. Why you ask? Because it isn’t true to you. Yes, I’m sure that they are great answers, but they aren’t your answers. You want to be true to yourself during your interview and you don’t want to be the person reading off answers that someone else wrote out. Be yourself and have your own answers, I promise it is worth it.

Do: Have a post-it note to write down your interviewer’s name

It is almost expected by the recruiters that you will thank them by name at the end of your interview. And by recruiters, I mean anyone at any company that is interviewing you. At Disney, it is also very important to do this. Because it’s a phone interview, take advantage of the fact that you can write down the recruiter’s name so that you remember it by the end. My recruiter definitely seemed to appreciate that I thanked her by name at the end just by the tone of her voice. No matter what, you need to show them appreciation because I’m sure recruiting season is long.

Don’t: Have more than one page of notes

If you are on the Facebook pages you will see all kinds of posts with 10+ papers taped to a wall with potential interview questions and the answers that people want to use. First of all, you won’t have enough time to dig through those papers no matter how you tape them up, if you pause to answer for too long I’m sure the recruiter will expect that you have answers written out, and if you do find a question that you have answered in a quick manor, it’s fairly easy to tell when someone is reading something off. Save yourself the stress of digging through papers and cut it down to one page of answers, advice, etc. and keep it easy and authentic.

Do: Send a ‘Thank you’ e-mail to recruiting

After you have completed your interview, send an e-mail to recruiting with your interviewer’s name as “Attn: ‘Insert Interviewer’s Name’” in the title. In the e-mail thank them for taking the time out of their day to interview them then incorporate something specific that you said during your interview so that it helps them remember you. For example, one of my questions for the end of my interview was, “Since I’m a marketing nerd, I’d love to know what your favorite part of working for the Disney brand is.” Because of this question, I incorporated parts of her answer that I enjoyed in all of my marketing nerdiness.

Don’t: Freak out if your recruiter calls late

Recruiting season is hectic. While yes, it is stressful to have to wait to get a call from your recruiter, know that they can be running behind especially if your interview is later in the day. While the website says they can call 45-60 minutes late, I’ve heard of some instances in which people waited an hour and a half to two hours. Just be patient and keep your phone on. If you end up missing the call because the call was so much later than expected or you don’t get a call at all, e-mail recruiting or even find the recruiting phone number. Mistakes happen and they will definitely always do their best to make sure you get to interview.

Do: Have a mirror in front of you during the interview

When a friend who had recently done a phone interview gave me this tip I laughed. Why in the world would I want to look at myself in a mirror during an interview? Well, it turns out you do want to look at yourself in the mirror during a phone interview. Since you aren’t physically talking to someone, you often stop showing interest in your posture and in your smile. Fun fact: it’s easy to tell if someone is smiling while they talk even if you aren’t looking at them. Having the mirror in front of you insures that your posture and your smile are in check during your interview.

Don’t: Be somewhere that you have bad cell service

While service being dropped is out of our control, if you know you get bad service somewhere don’t go there for your interview. I saw people on the Facebook pages who had bad cell service in their apartments and do their phone interviews in their parked cars because reception is better there. I even know of people who scheduled study rooms on their university’s campus to do their phone interview. Whatever you choose to do, make sure you have good cell service.

Do: Have questions for the end of the interview

On my one sheet of paper for interview notes I made sure to include three questions that I wanted to ask at the end of my phone interview. In any interview, it’s always important to have at least one question ready to go for the end of the interview, so you should be prepared for the end of your Disney interview as well. I personally chose 3 questions because if I had a lot of time left at the end of my interview, I wanted to have questions to fill the time. I ended up only being able to ask 2 of them, but I’d rather be prepared than unprepared.

Don’t: Wait to come up with questions for the end

I’ve heard in several professional development classes that it’s encouraged to come up with questions for the end based off of your interview. While it’s great if you can come up with a question, you don’t want to have to come up with something quickly just because you don’t want to hang up. Have two or three questions ready to go and if you think a good questions based off of your interview use that instead of your planned questions.

Do: Be prepared for your interview 20 minutes early

My phone interview was 15 minutes earlier than planned. I am forever grateful that I was ready 20 minutes early with my phone out and on loud, had my pen out, interview sheet ready, and had mentally prepared myself for the interview.

Don’t: Ask how they got started with the Disney company

Everyone and their mother asks the recruiters how they got started with the Disney company. By now, if you ask that question they know you’ve been on the Facebook pages and you won’t stick out from the other potential CP’s. Ask questions that are more original and will help you stand out in the interview process.

Have you ever interviewed for the DCP? If so, what do’s and don’ts would you add to this list? If you have an interview coming up, which tips did you find most helpful? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!

To say that I’ve caught the Disney bug is a bit of an understatement. Once I got my acceptance to the Disney College Program I went from just following the brand to crazily attempting to catch up on the Disney movies I’ve missed and reading all of the books on Walt I could get my hands on, which included the 500-page biography on his life. Through all of my Disney learning escapades I stumbled upon Disney related merchandise on Etsy which soon led me to the amazing world of Disney vendors. While these people aren’t affiliated with Disney it’s not to say that they aren’t an offshoot of Disney magic. The people behind this shops are Disney lovers and Disney nerds as well and have you covered with their high quality merchandise. While I could go on for days about my favorite Disney related online shops, today I decided to share with you the ones I see as the cream of the crop.

Modern Mouse Boutique

This shop features my all-time favorite Minnie Mouse Ears. They have everything from park themed, Winnie the Pooh, pirates, princess, Pixar, Star Wars, and more. Their ears are insanely high quality and getting a package from them is magical in and of itself. Personally I currently own their Cinderella and Ariel ears and have my eyes set on the Up and Tangled theme ears. And as a side note, I’m personally biased in the fact that I think they have the best Cinderella themed ears out there, but that’s just me.

Oh Yeah Apparel

Scott and Emily are two of my very favorite Disney YouTubers turned online shop owners. They started out selling ears and t-shirts and now focus on their t-shirts. I’m obsessed with their ‘Snack Goals’ t-shirt and I hope to get my hands on their ‘Far Off Places’ t-shirt before the end of my college program. If you’ve never heard of them before, I highly recommend you check them out.

Main Street Ears Shop

Jared and Britt are two more of my favorite Disney YouTubers. I low-key watch their vlogs, hauls, and Disney related videos while getting ready, doing homework, or even in the evenings because they make me so happy just by watching. Hopefully I don’t sound like a creep, but if I run into them at Disney I would have to try very hard to not start crying tears of joy. My strange fan girl ways aside, I can’t get over Britt’s ear shop. I’m specifically in love with the Mini Dot Mouse Ears, Pineapple Dole Whip Ears, Briar Rose Gold Sequin Ears, and the Healthcare Companion Ears. If you haven’t already, check them out on YouTube and Etsy.

Spray on the Glitter

This Etsy shop embodies my personal love of all things cute, girly, and sparkly. This shop sells Magic Band Bows and who in their right mind can say no to something as awesome as that? Personally I’m obsessed with their Fairy Tale Magic, Mermaid Magic, and Lily Pulitzer inspired bows, but that’s just me. Honestly, I’d be thrilled with anything I got from this shop. I think it’s the perfect way to add your own personally touch to Magic Bands that everyone in the park is wearing. Because who doesn’t want to add a little personality to something everyone else has? These bows are the perfect way to spice things up!

Wicked Ears

Have I ever mentioned in this post or on this blog that I love sparkle? Well in case I haven’t made that clear, this post will definitely make that clear. Wicked Ears specializes in the best, most sparkly Minnie Mouse ears that there are. In fact, you have to be quick on your feet to get your hands on her ears when she opens her shop up. I’m absolutely obsessed with the silver sparkle ears I ordered from her and I highly recommend that you follow her on Facebook and Instagram to get notifications when she adds the sparkle ears to her shop. Aside from her amazing sparkle ears, she also sells the most adorable mini backpacks. I’ve personally had my eye on this one for a while.

Magical Monograms

Magical Monograms is your place to go for all things adorable Disney inspired t-shirt and tumblr cup. As a college girl, I definitely match the stereotype that I love Comfort Color brand t-shirts and tank tops and that’s the brand that she uses for a large majority of her merchandise. I’ve personally been eyeing the Mermaid Kisses tank, Mouse Monogram Tumblr, and the Home is Where the Castle is t-shirt. Be sure to check out her shop because she has a ton of Disney related items including Magic Band decals.

Blush and Gold Design

If you are someone that wants Disney inspired vinyl decals this is the shop for you. This shop sells Magic Band Decals, Mouse-inspired monograms, and decals that are Disney related. Personally I’m obsessed with the Dole Whip decal, the castle decal, and the Walt and Mickey decal. Although I highly recommend that you check out this shop for yourself since there are over 150 items to choose from.

2319 Threads

2319 Threads was one of the first shops that I stumbled upon after getting accepted to my Disney College Program and one of the first shops that I made a purchase from. I own and love their ‘Okay, but first, Disney’ top and currently have my eye on their WDW Crowns and Castles shirt and Straight Outta Neverland tank. Be sure to check their shop regularly as they always seem to be adding new merchandise.

Have you ever shopped at one of the Disney related shops I listed above? If so, which one(s)? If you haven’t, do you plan to check any of them out? Are there any shops you would add to this list? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!

I’m always honest on my blog and in this post I’ll be completely honest in the fact that this part of the application process is what had me most nervous. I don’t do well with timed things and I didn’t know how I would react if the final page popped up and said I wouldn’t be progressing on. I called my mom before pressing ‘go’ and literally made her stay on the line the whole time as I completed the WBI to be moral support of sorts (read: help me emotionally if the last page told me I wouldn’t proceed in the interview process). And if you have read my prior DCP posts, yes, my poor mother had to deal with a very anxious me throughout the whole application process, even if she wasn’t providing verbal support.

While the WBI is what shook me up the most about applying for the program, I’m hoping with the tips I share today you won’t have that same experience and that your mom won’t have to sit silently while you go through the WBI in case you have an emotional breakdown at the end. And if you’ve already completed the WBI I hope you find that you can relate to my reaction to the WBI. The nerves were real y’all.

You get your answers on the very last page

I honestly know that this is the reason why I was so nervous going into the WBI and why I reacted the way I did (read the above explanation. Sorry mom! I love you and appreciate that you understood I wanted someone to talk to the minute I saw my results). The very last page does tell you whether you will be moving on to the phone interview or if, sadly, you are no longer in consideration. Just continue to remember, there really seems to be no method to the madness in how Disney selects people based off of the application, WBI, and phone interview.

Each question is timed

I knew that it was timed going in, but what I wasn’t aware of going in until the main page was that each question was timed. You had a minute or less to read the question and select your answer, which gives you plenty of time to read and select something, but not enough time to mull over an answer. So just know going in, you need to be able to select an answer that matches you the best and then move on.

Don’t freak out if you don’t get the chance to answer a question

I joined the Facebook pages a few days before applications opened and watched as posts rolled in with people freaking out over missing one or two questions on their WBI and fearing that after the phone interview it would lead to the end of their chances. Totally not the case. While we don’t know Disney’s selection methods, I can tell you that simply missing the chance to answer a question or two doesn’t through you out of the mix. Disney knows that the questions are timed and that you have to be quick on your feet to answer, so they also know that means there is the chance you might not answer them all. Breath if you miss one. It’s okay. I promise. I missed one as well during my WBI.

Be honest in your answers

When you complete an online interview like this there will often be questions that will pop up again either worded exactly the same way or worded in a different way that means basically the same thing. It’s important to answer true to yourself in these questions because they will pop up again just as a double-check to make sure your answers are true to you.

Lean towards strongly agree/ strongly disagree

While you should always stay true to yourself, leaning towards strongly agree or strongly disagree is always a good thing to do with these sorts of online interviews. Neutral isn’t always seen as a good answer because since they haven’t talked to you personally, they don’t know your thought pattern behind why you selected that. If “are you good helping and serving customers” pops up, I know to select strongly agree because I am confident in my customer service skills and want to show that it is a strong trait of mine.

Take a deep breath before hitting go

I promise, the 20-30 minutes it takes to complete the interview will fly by! Take a deep breath, remind yourself that you can do this, and hit go.

Have you ever taken the web-based interview for the DCP? If so, do you agree with these tips or have anything that you would like to add on? And if you are planning on applying to the DCP, do you think any of these tips will help you or was this post useful for you? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
