DCP Arrivals

Yesterday I got to experience the DCP arrival process from the other side. My shift yesterday involved working the DCP check ins. It was so much fun getting to assist new CPs with their first day. It made me miss being in the DCP (take me back!). If I could give any advice to new CPs it would be to live it up! Go out , have fun, sleep later, make friends! The DCP is such a unique amazing experience, and you need to enjoy every second of it.

Also if you are checking in on Sept 8th  I will be working the event again, so please say hello! :)

DCP Housing Tour- Chatham

One of the most exciting parts of the DCP is housing. You have the opportunity to live with new people from all around the world. I was in a 3 bedroom unit in Chatham Square. There were 6 girls total. Here are some photos of our unit! Chatham is my favorite complex. I love how it is in the center of Patterson and The Commons so it makes hanging out with friends easy. I also love the social aspect of Vista Way, but the units aren't as nice. Patterson has the most updated units. The Commons has some of the best floor plans. Honestly, any complex is fine!
I put fabric around my bulletin board to make it prettier

Bed is on risers and curtains are hung with tension rod

Hung frame and jewelry with command hooks

guess which clothes are mine :-P

These storage container things are life savers!

News Flash

I always want to stay up to date on the news, but I never have time to read through multiple news info sites. However....There is a program called theSkimm. My friend Morgan got me hooked to it. theSKimm allows you to read about current news topics in quick little blurbs. The topics are not biased or based towards one specific political party as well. Want to stay informed?

My Role: Cast Service Center Specialist

" The Cast Member Concierge"

The easiest way to sum up my Professional Internship. I am currently a Cast Service Center Specialist based in Epcot. Originally I was going to be in a different role, but due to some changes in departments I am now in the cast service center. The Cast Service Specialist role is considered an "alumni only" role for the professional internships. If you are interested in this role you would need to complete a Disney College Program before applying.

 Some of you might be wondering what exactly a cast service specialist is. We cover so many areas in our role. We are basically a concierge desk for cast members. We handle HR questions, career questions, resume assistance, benefits questions etc. The centers have resources available for cast members to rent (Books and DVDs). We also have a computer lab as well as faxing, printing, and copying services. As a cast service specialist I also get to help with events at Epcot. Yesterday we had our annual cast party (an event for all Epcot cast featuring food, entertainment, and characters) Other events I have assisted with include cultural celebrations in the World Showcase as well as hallway handouts. Another fun part of my role is that I get to go all over Disney property. Most days I am working at Epcot, but sometimes I have shifts in the other parks as well. There are cast service centers in each park (including water parks), each resort, Downtown Disney, and Espn Wide World of Sports.

If you are interested in applying to this internship feel free to send me a message or comment with any questions!!!
