If you came here specifically to learn about the Disney College Program or are curious to how I started out my career with Disney, here is a brief timeline my Disney College Program.
A few specifics right off the bat..
|I already miss living here!|
Arrival Date: September 5, 2012
Departure Date: January 4, 2013
Role: Shallow Water Lifeguard at Disney's Contemporary Resort and Bay Lake Tower
Deployments: I was deployed twice, one week to Disney's All Star Resort and one month at Disney's Pop Century Resort.
Housing: A 3 bedroom at Vista Way (Roomies' roles: 1 other Lifeguard, 2 on Culinary Program, 1 QSFB (outdoor foods), 1 Merchandise)
Classes: I did not take any Disney Classes, but I did attend a few Career Development workshops (Resume writing, networking, and presentation skills)
CP Events: My favorites were Oktoberfest and CP Formal (it was fantasy themed!). Both had lots of food!
