Shameless plug because I’m having withdrawals
Some people are social butterflies and do not have problems making friends. Some applies for DCP to improve their social skills cause they are shy. Some people feel more comfortable if they are with people who they know already. Some people are okay with just them and no plans on making new friends,I find it interesting people saying your program won’t be good if you don’t have friends there. I literally woke up one morning in Canada and went to bed that night in Florida with roommates that I’ve never met before from Norway, Mexico and Germany, and we all got along pretty great.
You say over and over again how you're not a people person but you didn't answer me when I said weren't you involved with the whole Patrick Spikes situation and Buzzy.....I was told I would have to pay a $150 fee to change my room. That wasn’t happening. I only had one roommate. The other guy was cool but he relocated in literally 2 days. Again, I’m a theatre kid. I definitely am an extroverted people person. I’m not a party person. There’s a difference.
Everyone is saying this. So I just want to know what the heck was up when I asked the person at the desk, in person!
Yep. I’m a people person. Not a party person. Get behind a Smash Bros tournament, or let’s make films together or other geeky things. But I don’t drink, and I dont care for being around a bunch of people who only care about partying every single dang night.
I did get REALLY tired of starting the same ice breaker conversation over and over again in traditions, only to immediately get split up.
Nope. Those guys are cool.
What doesn’t make sense? I applied for DCP the semester after I transferred colleges. None of my friends were able to afford/go because of cost and/or theatre commitments.
DCP sucked. Not for most people. But it did for me. Party hungry sex crazy kids just trying to escape college. A lot, for several semesters in a row. Seems pretty sus to me. They all acted like immature high schoolers with all the drama I kept Hearing from a distance, too.

I think Flamingo Village will only be for program participants, across the street is another complex being built that will be open to anyone.of the old complexes, they also have completed a new complex at Flamingo Crossings opening in November that will be open to all cast members, not just DCP.
Disney was ahead of the curve to send the CPs home abruptly. It was a sad situation for the CPs but Disney knew what was coming with the virus From their parks overseas. Disney had clearer information than most entries stateside and used it to safeguard those very young college students.As DCP alumni (the Spring 2020 program that was cancelled) I was wondering when everyone thought it would begin again. I don't think the program will be outright cancelled- they just finished building a new housing complex and the CP is a source of cheap labor. However, I'm not sure when the need will arise to bring them back. Obviously, it will be after everyone furloughed returns (or is let go, which I hope doesn't happen). Personally, I think it will be around Fall 2021. By then, a vaccine will hopefully be making the rounds, and masks may no longer be a requirement. It depends on a multitude of factors, of course, but this is fun to talk about. Personally I don't think I'd do another CP but would rather be employed outright, mainly because of the Aspire program.
I'd love to hear all of your thoughts!
Very sad if true. I guess I will pin my hopes on getting hired as PT, then!Just FYI from what I have heard, the entire recruiting team for the College Program was let go in the latest round of layoffs. I think it is safe to say the College Program isn't coming back anytime at least within the next couple of years.
I would have been fine making friends if everyone didn't just want to drink or go on the party busy every single night.Some people are social butterflies and do not have problems making friends.

I used to only talk to people when they initiate talking to me first. If not, I won't speak to you at all. I got better with that though so I can understand how people are different in social situations.
It's all good. I'm very happy with where I ended up right after... Ended up getting engaged in March and our children's theatre business has been back up and running. Life is good!What does that have to do with anything or the topic at hand? Lmao.
Sorry to hear your CP experience wasn't stellar tho.

And those who didn't were very interesting people...
......Either that, or I just really don't like people, I guess.
I guess so. Educate me... (or is this a joke, I cant read jokes very well on these threads)Wow...you somehow overlooked/overshot article 1 of the college program charter.
Do people not know? Disney must be better at cyber policing than I gave them credit for
