3 What You Can Expect Today Welcome! We are delighted to meet you and hope to give you a better understanding of what the next few months will be like for the newest Walt Disney World Cast Member in your family. Housing Check-in Parents may also attend the Housing Welcome Session if space permits, but we kindly request that parents wait outside or in the back of the room until all required attendees are able to be seated. Due to the limited space and tight schedule, we ask that participants do not save or change seats during the presentation. ProgramGUIDE 4 Today is the first day of a truly unique experience. All of our participants begin their journey with the Housing check-in process, which includes: Getting an apartment assignment, new address and phone number and key Reviewing the Housing Community Codes Getting a property ID and a vehicle decal for parking on Housing property, if applicable Employment Check-in Participants will also be given an appointment time to complete their employment check-in at the Casting Center, at which they will: Review required proof of right to work and other paperwork with an employment specialist Arrange for a payroll card or direct deposit (must have voided check from their bank to immediately enroll in direct deposit; see page 14 for details) Undergo fingerprinting for their background check Receive their work location and role assignment Meet with a Coordinator of Training for their training schedule and assigned time to attend Disney Traditions*, our company orientation session and their first official day of work Get an appointment time for any additional required testing for specific job classifications (examples include drug & alcohol testing or a swim test) Receive their appointment time for the Housing Welcome Session, a mandatory two-hour orientation to living in Disney Housing Transportation is provided to appointment locations for our participants, but unfortunately we are not able to transport family or friends. The employee check-in appointment time generally falls within 30 minutes to an hour of completing their housing check-in, and frequently, participants will need to board a bus that will take them to the Casting Center immediately. While we estimate that the housing check-in takes about an hour, it is more than likely your family member will be engaged in various stages of the check-in process for three hours or more. Between appointment times, participants are free to settle into their apartments, become familiar with their surroundings and start bonding with their new roommates. We welcome you to assist them with move-in, or you may wish to visit the Downtown Disney Area or other local shopping and/ or attractions. Please don t hesitate to ask one of our Housing representatives for information or directions! *See page 13 for additional information and expected dress. Once participants have attended Disney Traditions they are officially hired and become eligible for advertised Cast Member-only offerings and discounts. The Housing Welcome Session Your family member will return from Casting with an appointment time to attend our Housing Welcome Session. This meeting is mandatory and reviews safety, security procedures, maintenance, policies, available amenities, resources and expectations for becoming a new member of our community. This session will be either later this afternoon (generally around 3 p.m.) or more likely, the following day. Get Connected! Join our list to receive updates about the program! The messages will feature news and updates about the Disney College Program, spotlights on participants, photos from housing events, updates about Education offerings and much more. You can sign up for notifications at the Family and Friends Welcome Area. Housing Overview While your family members are participating in the program, they will learn more than Disney Guest service skills and leadership qualities. Former participants frequently tell us they developed personally as well as professionally; growing more confident, outgoing and independent and becoming more globally aware by learning to interact and live with others who were very different from them. The Housing team works hard to provide a comfortable, nurturing living experience that helps our participants develop and cultivate these skills. Below is an overview of our housing and the many components associated with the program living experience. We invite you to review this information at your leisure, and keep this guidebook as a reference during your family member s program. Disney Housing Operations Programs Office The Disney Housing Operations Programs Office, commonly referred to as the Programs Office, is located on the second floor of The Commons Clubhouse and is open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Here are just a few reasons why our participants might contact the Programs Office: Questions about the program Roommate issues or other Housing-related concerns Questions about upcoming Housing events or activities Sign up for advertised Housing activities and/or Housing voluntear opportunities They have a question and are not sure who to call We re here to help! We welcome our participants to stop by during office hours, or call us at ext from their apartment phone ( from an outside line). 5Housing Overview

4 Give Kids the World Village and other voluntear opportunities Participants can ask about and sign up for various voluntear opportunities at the Programs Office, including Give Kids the World. Each week, participants travel with the Housing team to the Give Kids the World Village, a resort area where children with life-threatening illnesses and their families stay while visiting Orlando attractions. These rates are based on the number of bedrooms and varying amenities among the complexes. They do not include any applicable taxes, and some exceptions may apply. Housing costs are automatically deducted weekly from our Cast Members paychecks, so they don t need to worry about turning in a check at the beginning of the month. We make every effort to ensure the living component of our program is as convenient as possible for our participants. ProgramGUIDE You can learn more about the Give Kids the World Village by visiting Additional volunteer opportunities will be listed in the monthly Communicator newsletter or on the Disney VoluntEARs Website, Disney Housing Operations events The Disney Housing Operations Events team is responsible for planning, organizing and executing a variety of social, recreational and educational events for Disney Internships and Programs participants living in Housing. Examples from past seasons include talent shows, semi-formal dances, networking events, movie nights, and even BINGO nights where participants can win free groceries! We welcome questions, comments or suggestions about these events from our participants by calling us at ext from their apartment phone, or from an outside line. Recreational facilities There are many recreational facilities located in or near our housing complexes. Some of these are listed below. Fitness centers at each complex Pools at each complex Recreational equipment is available for check-out at each complex Sand volleyball courts at Vista Way, The Commons and Chatham Square Outdoor pool tables at Vista Way, Chatham Square and Patterson Court Tennis courts at Vista Way, The Commons and Chatham Square Basketball court at Vista Way Hot tubs (two) at Vista Way Mickey s Retreat What do the housing costs cover? Program participants live in gated housing complexes located right outside of Walt Disney World property. Each complex features a variety of offerings to make them feel at home. Here is a list of amenities included in the housing costs for every participant: Fully-furnished apartment with kitchen utensils and appliances 24-hour security Local phone service and one central phone Maintenance of the apartments, including pest control All utilities, including water, electricity and waste disposal High-speed Internet access in all apartments Computer labs Cable television hook-up (TV not included) Onsite laundry facilities Wellness and Non-Wellness apartments In assigning apartments, all participants are separated by gender and whether they are over or under the age of 21.

All others are placed in Non-Wellness apartments, unless participants request otherwise upon arrival. All apartments are designated non-smoking. Policies Cast Members living in housing must abide by certain guidelines, which we call Community Codes. These guidelines are set with the safety of all of our participants in mind. Failure to comply with Community Codes may result in discipline including termination from the program. More information about Community Codes appears on page 10, under the Safety and Security section. Housing Overview Mickey s Retreat at Little Lake Bryan is a 19-acre recreation facility open exclusively to Disney Cast Members and their families. The facility contains two swimming pools, a marina with canoe and paddleboat rentals, a children s play area, picnic pavilions, four sand volleyball courts, two tennis courts, two basketball courts, a banquet room and more. Mickey s Retreat is located between The Commons and Chatham Square. Housing information and costs All of our apartment complexes feature a long list of amenities, as well as a clubhouse transportation to and from work, and 24-hour security. One- to four-bedroom apartments are available with two participants sharing each bedroom. Housing costs vary depending on the complex and the size of the apartment. Participants typically live in one of four apartment complexes: Vista Way, The Commons, Patterson Court or Chatham Square. Costs range from $82 - $105 per week (costs are subject to change). Computers All apartments have high-speed Internet access. The modem is located in the living room, and there are four ports Cast Members can use to connect their computers. Internet usage policy: Internet service is provided for our participants under the condition of our Internet usage policy as described in the Community Codes. Misuse can lead to disciplinary action including termination. To use these modems, we require the following: Anti-virus software that runs constantly and automatically updates its virus definitions Ethernet card and cable A firewall program Each complex has a computer lab that our Cast Members are welcome to use for classwork, , etc. In addition, Cast Members may use computers at any of our Disney Learning Centers or Service Centers located throughout Walt Disney World property, including one at Vista Way. 6 7

The following areas allow wireless access: Vista Way: Clubroom Thirteen501 inside the Vista Way Clubhouse The clubhouse lobby Pool one Pool two The bus stop The Pavilion The Commons: The clubroom The pool The clubhouse lobby Clubroom Thirteen501: Located inside the Vista Way Clubhouse, Cast Members are welcome to enjoy the comfortable surroundings to read, meet with project groups for class work, check their using the free high-speed wireless Internet connection, etc. in this lounge area. The lounge is open daily from 9 a.m. to midnight. Transportation Patterson Court: The pool The clubhouse lobby The classrooms Chatham Square: The classrooms The pool The clubhouse lobby The transportation we offer is very similar to the mass-transit system of a large city and is available to all program participants who live in our housing. The primary purpose of our transportation system is to provide our Cast Members who live in our apartment complexes with a shuttle to their work location on a scheduled route. However, we know that many participants arrive without an automobile, and they still need groceries and want to take an occasional trip to the mall or the beach on their days off. We provide shuttles to the grocery store, post office and local shopping mall. Frequently, we offer a group trip to our participants to locations such as Cocoa Beach and Fort De Soto Beach. Communication Your family member can use the following resources to learn about the many events and activities that are planned exclusively for them, updates and enhancements to the program, Disney VoluntEAR activities, learning opportunities at the Disney Learning Center and much more. The Communicator This monthly newsletter is published exclusively for our participants, available in the newspaper vending machines at each apartment complex. A copy is also mailed to each apartment. HTM: Housing the Magic Participants may tune in to watch weekly broadcasts that cover upcoming events, Cast discounts, up-to-date program news, Cast Member-only offerings, networking opportunities and more. Weekly Each week, participants receive an electronic newsletter with the latest news, event information and Cast-exclusive offers. Disney Internships and Programs module on The Hub (the Walt Disney Company intranet site) contains a wealth of information about our company, the programs, as well as photos from housing events. Bulletin boards Our complexes feature bulletin boards and digital signage with information about upcoming housing events and VoluntEAR opportunities. Twitter updates Twitter is a free service where users can follow others and receive updates about what their friends are doing. Participants can choose to receive the updates through their mobile phone or on the Twitter Webpage. Participants can follow the Housing team and be reminded about events and career-development classes by visiting Twitter.com/ DisneyHousing. (To receive updates, participants must create a profile.) Housing Overview Buses run on a specific schedule, and it is the participant s responsibility to be at the bus stop in time to catch the bus he/she needs to get to work on time. The Walt Disney World Resort is huge (More than 40 square miles!), so it is not unusual for participants to spend 45 minutes or longer traveling from home to their work location. Participants receive a transportation schedule at check-in. They can also download a copy from The Hub, our company intranet. 8 9

6 How can the front desk help? Front desk information Our property management company, Price Management, handles all property issues and staffs the front desk of each complex. Front desk employees help participants with a variety of concerns related to their apartment. Apartment relocation requests/housing-related questions Participants can stop by the front desk of their complex and complete a Move Request form. There is a relocation fee of $50 when and if this request can be granted. Relocations are not granted within the first three weeks of a participant s arrival. Mailbox keys One mailbox key is located on a hook next to the phone in each apartment. We provide one key to each apartment at no charge. Additional keys can be purchased at the front desk for $3 with valid identification. Accountable mail The front desk will ONLY accept packages delivered by the U.S. Post Office. We do not accept deliveries sent by private courier services such as Federal Express or United Parcel Service (UPS). These items are delivered directly to the participant s apartment. All U.S. Postal Service packages and accountable mail (registered letters, etc.) may be picked up at the front desk of each complex. The front desk will accept the mail and call the recipient s apartment to alert him or her that a package is ready to be picked up. Maintenance requests The front desk accepts all maintenance requests, and a member of the maintenance staff will address any concerns as quickly as possible. Mailing supplies The front desk has a variety of envelopes available for purchase. Loaner equipment A variety of loaner equipment, such as vacuum cleaners, mops and mop pails, sporting equipment (basketballs, ping pong paddles, etc.), and irons/ironing boards, is available to check out at the front desk of each complex. Local attractions/shopping directions Directions and maps for many popular destinations, religious establishments and medical facilities are available at the front desk. Inspections Inspections are both random and scheduled in all apartments. These inspections are held to check the general cleanliness of the apartment, to assess the condition of the furniture, carpets, etc., and also to check in with roommates to see how everyone is getting along. Cast Members who fail an inspection may be charged fees and/or receive disciplinary action. A schedule of apartment inspections is posted at the entrances to all complexes to alert Cast Members that the Inspection team will visit their building on a specific day. Safety and Security At the Walt Disney World Resort, safety is always our number one priority. We ve been housing participants in our Programs for more than 30 years and continue to evaluate security needs and make appropriate enhancements as necessary. All of our properties have one entrance and exit area, which is gated and maintains 24-hour onsite security. Participants, vendors, guests and Housing employees must present a Property ID to access our property, or present a photo ID and be signed in by a Housing employee or participant. In the event of an emergency, the Housing team can communicate with participants in a number of ways: Distribute information quickly as cast members enter and exit the property Send a recorded message and/or text message to all cell phone numbers voluntarily provided to us at check-in, as well as apartment phones Send s to all participants with emergency information Broadcast information on an in-house television channel and digital signage Distribute information quickly and broadly to Walt Disney World operational areas through our network of communication leaders We also have developed Community Codes, which are guidelines for our participants living in our housing. All participants are required to abide by these codes or face disciplinary action, not excluding termination. Here is a summary of the document participants must sign: Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking: 1.

All participants are financially responsible for all amounts and payroll deductions that are owed, including Housing costs and assessed fees. The non-refundable Program Assessment Fee is not a deposit and does not cover damages, any financial debt or cleaning fees. 2.

All participants who operate a vehicle on property must have valid automobile liability insurance issued by an insurance company registered and authorized in the United States (including the State of Florida) that will cover any property damage or personal injury. These policies are enforced for the safety, comfort and well-being of all our participants, and we stress to participants that they may always call or visit the Programs Office if they have any questions or concerns. Participants should report any known or suspected violations to security, and may do so confidentially. Security phone numbers are listed on the back of every apartment front door, the back of their Property ID and on the inside cover of the Program Guide each Cast Member receives as they arrive. In the Housing Welcome Session, Housing leaders also discuss the availability of the Employee Assistance Program to all Walt Disney World cast members who are struggling with work-related issues, as well as problems with roommates, co-workers, family members and friends. Leaders also explain the seriousness of threats to harm others or themselves, even in jest. Any threat or perceived threat brought to our attention or observed by management will result in discipline, not excluding termination. Privacy laws and your family member We know family involvement can considerably increase a participant s success in the program, and we hope to share with you information and opportunities for which you can encourage involvement during your family member s program experience. With this in mind, please understand that all of our participants are over the age of 18, and as legal adults U.S. privacy statutes restrict us from releasing any personally identifiable information or record regarding, but not limited to education, financial transactions, medical history, criminal or employment history to anyone without expressed consent by the subject of record, or through conditions of disclosure provided by applicable law. Hurricane Preparedness Hurricane season runs from June-November, and we know you likely have questions about what happens in the event of a storm. Throughout the season, Walt Disney World leaders work closely with local, county and state officials to monitor the progress of each storm. As the tropical systems continue to form and strengthen, our resort area follows five phases of hurricane preparedness. During each phase, more actions are initiated and precautions are taken. In fact, the Walt Disney World Resort became the first major theme park and resort area in history to be recognized by the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service as a StormReady Community. In the event that hurricane conditions are imminent, and our theme parks and operating areas must be shut down, many of our Disney College Program participants join other Cast Members in rideout shifts in our Walt Disney World resorts. In addition to the guests staying in our resorts as part of their vacations, we often accommodate evacuees from neighboring counties in more vulnerable coastal areas. Our ride-out crews helped entertain Guests, answer their questions, and serve food. In this environment, our Cast Members are in a location with many other people and have access to the basic supplies they need, as well as updated news reports. Because of the infrastructure of our resorts, they usually maintain electricity throughout the storm. If our Cast Members are not on a ride-out shift, they often are part of the clean-up crew. Once the storm clears and county officials announce that it s safe to travel on our roads, many of our Walt Disney World Cast Members who work in operating areas are asked to report to their work location (or elsewhere as needed) to relieve the Cast Members in ride-out crews and help prepare the areas for the days Guests. At the housing complexes, there are some basic, proactive actions we encourage our programs Cast Members to take to help ensure they are prepared in the event of a hurricane. Always have plenty of non-perishable food items. Remember, we may be without electricity for extended periods of time, so cooking will not be possible. Keep on hand at least one gallon of water per person in your apartment. Have a battery-operated light with fresh batteries. Glow sticks also work very well. Have a portable radio with fresh batteries. Have a supply of back-up batteries. Make sure your renter s insurance policy is paid up and current. During a storm, you may experience water intrusion from the wind-driven rain. Protect all electronics and valuables from the possibility of a roof or window leak. Keep all personal belongings off the floor. You can be rest assured that the safety and security of our Cast Members and Guests is our top concern. Each decision we make is based on maintaining a safe environment for our Cast while they re participating in the program. If you have any questions or would like more information about our hurricane preparedness plans, please contact our Disney Housing Operations Programs Office at If you have any questions, please contact the Programs Office by calling or sending an to Helping your Family Member

8 Direct Deposit For the ease of our participants and in efforts to be environmentally friendly, Disney College Program participants are issued a payroll card in place of a live check (see below). If participants would prefer to directly deposit their check into a home bank account, they can do so by bringing a voided check from the account to their employment check-in appointment at Casting. If they do not have a check available at this time, participants can still set up direct deposit in part or in whole two weeks after their first payroll deposit is loaded to their payroll card. At that time, participants can go to The Hub (our company intranet site) and make changes to payroll deposits under the personal information tab. The Payroll Card The PaychekPLUS! Elite Visa Payroll Card is a Visa-branded, stored-value card issued to all participants to provide convenient, low-cost access to weekly pay. This debit card may be used to shop anywhere Visa is accepted, and is issued to participants during their check-in. Pay will be directly deposited to their payroll card by 10 a.m. EST every Thursday. Participants will receive information about how to withdraw cash from their payroll card account, options for checking their balance and frequently asked questions about their payroll card during their employment check-in process. Personal checks may not be used to deposit money to the card. The card may be reloaded by: Payroll deposits Cash to card loads Western Union Green Dot MoneyPak (For more information about Green Dot, please visit Medical Care There are several hospitals, pharmacies and medical care facilities near the Walt Disney World Resort, which are listed in your family member s Program Guide.

9 Education Overview Your family member has the opportunity to further his or her education Disney style. Career Development Workshops ProgramGUIDE We understand that each college and university has different requirements for receiving credit, which is why we encourage our participants to develop an individual learning plan. Depending on their goals, participants can design an educational experience that is right for them. We offer an array of learning options that range from computer-based training to classes that are recommended for college credit by The American Council on Education. We have designed our courses and offerings to complement the variety of needs and interests of our Disney Internships and Programs participants. Collegiate Offerings Each of the Collegiate courses focuses on an area of Walt Disney World Resort expertise and contains levels of academic rigor similar to the classes students may take at their college or university. Each class is recommended for three semester hours of college credit by the American Council on Education. Participants may have required textbooks, papers and special projects. Each of these courses consists of 11 sessions, meeting once per week for three to four hours in length. Seminar Offerings Each of the Seminar offerings provides students the unique opportunity to learn more about how the Walt Disney World Resort operates in key areas. These classes consist of a series of conversations and presentations facilitated by Disney leaders, each sharing his or her own insights and experiences.

Meetings are held several times a year; more information is available on The Hub. You can help your child be successful in the program! This experience is an opportunity of a lifetime, but it s only as valuable as the effort your family member puts into it. Here are the top ten ways to help your family member have the best possible experience: 1. Know your family member s resources. Your family member s leader is his/her number-one source for information. If he or she cannot talk to his/her leader about an issue, we recommend talking to another leader in the area, the area s Human Resources business partner or visting the Disney Service Center. Examples about when to call Housing and the front desk are listed in the Program Guide your family member receives upon check-in. 2. Advise him or her to refer to the Program Guide. Today, all participants receive a Program Guide that contains information that will be pertinent throughout their program, including their local address and phone number, apartment amenities, the Extra Hours Hotline, an overview of Education, Cast Member-only offers and much more. 3. Understand the Community Codes. All participants are held accountable for these rules while living in Disney Housing. Help your family member understand that he/she can be sent home for violating these rules. Your family member receives a copy of this signed agreement and has a list referenced in his or her Program Guide. Highlights are listed for you on page Stress the importance of attendance and commitment. We hire our programs participants to perform a role, and we are counting on them to show up for work, be on time and make magic for our Guests. The value gained from this experience is immeasurable; and many of our alumni are able to continue with the Disney company in some way in the future. Their record and reputation are being built now. Help him or her understand the importance of being responsible. Calling in to work and/or tardiness is unacceptable and can result in discipline, not excluding termination. 5. Encourage enrollment in Education offerings. There is so much to learn! We offer a variety of different learning opportunities some that are structured weekly sessions in a classroom and others that your family member can sign up for individually. There is something for everyone, and your family member may be able to earn college credit for taking the courses. Program Success 6. Encourage them to take advantage of networking opportunities. The Walt Disney World Resort is one of the largest private single-site employers in the country: we employ more than 60,000 Cast Members in hundreds of different lines of business. With such a large and diverse pool of employees, there is someone your family member can talk to and learn from. The Disney University and our Disney Internships and Programs Education team host several networking sessions each month, where Cast Members can listen to Disney leaders talk about their career histories and current responsibilities

12 7. Advise them to participate in special Housing events. Most participants tell us they make life long friends during their program. We try to provide as many opportunities as possible by planning pool parties, open-mic nights, movies at the pool, Grocery BINGO, talent shows, dances and more Cast-exclusive events. 8. Encourage them to engage in Disney VoluntEAR opportunities. Each Sunday and Wednesday, the Housing team takes participants to the Give Kids the World Village, a resort for families traveling to Central Florida with children who have life-threatening illnesses. There also are opportunities to volunteer at sporting events and with various organizations in the Central Florida community. 9. Interest them in joining a Diversity Resource Group. Our company values diversity and offers Cast Members many opportunities to make connections with others and have a voice in the way we conduct business. Diversity Resource Groups usually meet monthly and are open to all Cast Members. 10. Advise them to stay updated and aware of communication resources. We host a weekly TV broadcast called HTM: Housing The Magic that features information of interest to our participants, such as Housing events, Cast discounts, ideas for low-cost ways to spend days off, announcements about program extension opportunities, etc. Participants can tune in on channel 30.2 in HD or channel 3 on analog sets. We also publish The Communicator, a monthly newsletter for Cast Members in our housing, send weekly updates, tweet regularly and have digital and poster-sized bulletin boards at each complex. Your family member will not want to miss one opportunity so tell them to keep their eyes and ears open! For company or role-related information, participants should familiariaze themselves with The Hub. The Hub is our company s internal online resource for accurate, timely and relevant information, and it s a great way to stay in touch and up-to-date on all things happening at the Walt Disney World Resort. Participants can access the Extra Hours Hotline, read company news and announcements, view pictures from housing events, make discounted Disney resort reservations, view their work schedule and pay stub, view Cast Member-only offerings and more. WHAT S Next? This is just the first day of a lifetime of possibilities with the Disney Company for your family member. There are several ways to stay connected with the company and continue to grow professionally and personally after completing our program. Here are just a few options: Program Extension When a labor need exists, participants may have limited opportunities to extend their program experience for the length of another program. If participants maintain a clean record card and are in good standing, they may even have the opportunity to change roles and experience another side of the company.

13 Frequently Asked Questions for Family and Friends Where can participants go to get help when they have a question? Because this may be the first time our participants are living away from home, we know they may have many questions, ranging from how to wash clothes and where to go to change the oil in their vehicle, to how to find comfort when feeling homesick. Our housing provides a strong support structure for all Cast Members living in our apartment complexes. The Housing Operations Programs Office is open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. daily, and leaders are available to answer questions, counsel and provide support when needed. Each apartment complex has a front desk where Cast Members can ask questions, borrow cleaning and sports equipment, pick up maps to local churches, service providers, medical establishments and more. We also have security officers stationed at the front of each complex, in addition to officers who patrol our property 24-hours a day. If participants have a question about their work, the first person they should contact is their leader. If the leader cannot help, or if the problem involves the leader, the Cast Member should contact another leader or a Human Resources business partner in their work area.

Participants also are encouraged to take part in a variety of volunteer experiences across property. How does my family member seek out opportunities to network with Disney leaders while he/she is on the program? There are many opportunities provided to our participants each week to network. Each month, Disney College Program Cast Members can pick up a copy of The Communicator, a newsletter for all program participants located at the front desks and bus stops of their apartment complexes, with a fold-out calendar that lists all of the activities they can register to attend, as well as housing events where they can meet other participants. Your family member also can discuss networking goals with his/her work area leader or the housing leaders in the Housing Operations Programs Office. Is there a tuition fee for the Disney courses? The Disney College Program Education team does not charge tuition for the classes it offers; however, students enrolled in classes are required to pay a materials fee and also purchase required books for the class.

Disney University course offerings are also free to Cast Members. What kind of discounts do Cast Members receive?

We recommend that all Cast Members maintain an excellent record at work no calling in, no tardiness, etc. Can a participant change jobs? No; unfortunately we have limited roles available in each line of business. The recruiter has reserved a spot for the participant in the role indicated in their invitation. This role reservation was made based on the roles the participant indicated they were receptive to on the Role Checklist and during their interview. What are the consequences if a participant leaves the program early? When Disney College Program Cast Members agree to participate in our program, they are committing to the program he/she accepts. If Cast Members choose to leave the program prior to their departure date, they are adversely affecting their work area. There are consequences to quitting the program. Cast Members who leave early may receive a restricted rehire status, which may jeopardize their ability to be rehired in any part of The Walt Disney Company. If your family member is considering quitting the program, please encourage him/her to talk to a Disney leader prior to making that decision.

This review can be very important to those participants receiving credit for their Program experience. To avoid charges, all costumes must be returned to the wardrobe department. Participants should update their and mailing address on The Hub prior to departure. The address listed in the Personal Information module on the Walt Disney World tab will be used when sending tax information and other important papers.
