I worked at Disney College Program full-time
I participated in the college program at Disneyland. The housing community was wonderful and the program staff was overly helpful. As an employee of Disney you got to go into the parks for free and we even could go to the Walt Disney Studio. The classes were incredibly helpful and the MarketingU class really improve my resume. I have been offered numerous interviews for having Disney on my resume.
Long hours, especially during Holidays. DCP participants get priority over hours and some of the other park employees don't like that and tend to disregard you.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Disney College Program (Orlando, FL) in March 2012.
fill out application online including a pre-screening test. if you pass the pre-screening they will have you schedule a phone interview.
you can let them know what park you would prefer to work in, however it depends on the availability
