It has been two months since I began my Disney College Program! That is CRAZY! Sometimes there are creatures, sometimes there are tears, but regardless of what some YouTuber tells you on the internet here’s what you really need to know about the DCP.
1.) THERE ARE CREATURES EVERYWHERE. Not just bugs, not a little squirrel, we have CREATURES. So everyday when I exit my apartment I find some type of critter outside of my door. Whether it’s a cockroach, beetle, frog, snake, possum, or squirrel. I know that something is lurking outside that door. One of the more notable creatures is Kent. Kent is what we named this giant beetle thing that lived outside our apartment for weeks. Kent is MIA and hasn’t been seen in a week or so, but we know he’s not dead because he was so large that nothing could possibly kill him. Also if you have never seen a possum google image that before you get here or else you are in for a shock.
2.) Don’t expect to make a dime. I know that people on the Facebook pages will tell you to budget and you’ll be fine but that is simply not true. Let me give you some odds, out of my 6 roommates and 1 Ethan, I am the only one who is making any money and that is because I work upwards 55 hours a week. They work around 35 hours a week and are barely getting by after rent. So unless you are prepared to work 6 days a week for 10 hours a day, prepare yourself to be broke.
3.) Take the classes. I am taking one class over the summer and multiple in the fall. I cannot tell you enough how amazing my class has been and how much I have benefited from it. I think that a lot of people don’t want to waste their day off taking Disney classes but I really enjoyed mine and would 100 percent recommend it!
So there you go! Three things I have learned so far! Let me know if you have any questions about anything I have mentioned!
