What I liked
The Disney College Program was the best decision I have ever made. This was my first time ever applying for the program and I knew how competitive it was and how difficult it was to get accepted, and I thank my lucky stars every single day that I was able to get accepted on my first and only try. A lot of my friends, and people that I have spoken to have applied 3-5 times, which I think is incredible. When I got assigned the role of Quick Service, people said I was just working in a “glorified Mcdonalds,” which made me feel sort of discouraged. Although it kind of feels like that at first, I remembered that I am working in DISNEY, a Fortune 500 company and a business with some of THE BEST customer service in the whole world. What I absolutely loved about this program is that there were so many chances to grow. I see so many people quit or decline this role because of what they assume it to be or because it seems hard or too overwhelming or they’re just plain ole embarrassed, but I PROMISE YOU: if you keep an open mind, you will have so much fun. I know more people who absolutely loved this role than people who didn’t. Quick service definitely has its difficult moments and in the beginning, you will feel overwhelmed and flustered and may want to quit, but everyone truly is there to help you and you will get the hang of everything and quickly find your groove. You will meet a lot of people, and there’s a good chance you’ll work with a lot of fellow CPs which is awesome because that’s like giving you automatic friends. Im still in awe of the chance I was given and I would push anyone to consider the Disney College Program. No matter what I decide to do in life, the Disney College Program gave me amazing skills that I can utilize anywhere. It’s not easy, and I will stress that more than I can possibly make you understand.
