Cast Member Regrets | Disney Cultural Exchange Program

67 ratings | 1940 views
What would I change if I worked at Disney again as a summer Cast Member? When I did the Disney Cultural Exchange Program back in 2014, I tried to do as much as possible. Between the sleep deprivation and crazy environment, I didn't quite maximise my experience. Here are my top tips and suggestions to help you get the most out of your DCP or upcoming international program! I hope you learn something, get an idea, or don't make the same mistakes I did! My Winnie the Pooh ears are from the fantastic Philearmagic: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/PhilEarMagic https://www.instagram.com/philearmagic/ From not buying enough Cast Member merchandise to skipping on sleep and not travelling to Disneyland California or going on Disney Cruise Line, I hope this video helps! If you're moving out to Florida to start your new adventure soon, i hope you have an amazing time! Welcome to my channel! I am a 20-something Londoner with a love of Disney. Most of my content is travel vlogs, and most of those are in Disney Parks, including Walt Disney World and Disneyland Paris, and on Disney Cruise Line. I travel a lot with my younger sister, Alice, and love going on holiday with my friends as well.

I did my iCP in 2008 (Entertainment) CRP back in 2010 (Rose and Crowne) and I wish i had vlogged my experiences...but YouTube and what not was not as popular...plus I had a rubbish camera haha! I was a bit of a party animal too, being over 21!

I know exactly what you mean! I wish I'd vlogged mine in 2014. I got my good camera and started vlogging in 2016, so too late. WIsh I'd had the chance to go on nights out there!
We have the same phone case lol

Not too long! Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party - I hope I can go one day!

This is a really interesting video! Would you ever consider doing the CRP? Xx

I am in the same position as you - I work in an office and haven't worked in f&b for years. I would love to do it though! I might apply just to see what happens as I might regret it if I don't :) xxxx

Thanks Anna! I would love to, but I know I would never get a job offer! They like people who are currently working in merchandise or food and beverage and with a lot of experience, and I'm working in an office! It would be so cool, though. Would you ever apply? xx

I wish I had filmed my reaction to this video 😂 I mean I was there the whole summer with you so I understood everything haha! Would definitely recommend VoluntEARing, was amazing and you get a cool t-shirt to keep, buy alllll the cast merch (you’ll see my framed name badge when you visit 😉), sleep properly and get to know the people you work with - there’s nothing like a 1am visit to Shake shack in another CM’s car :). Oh and have plenty Days Of Fun! 💖

Aha I wish you had too! We had so many days of fun. I miss it so much! Might have to go back and watch your round-up video now! Really wish I'd bought more merch. Jealous!

This has been really eye opening, I'm heading out in a week and a day and literally so nervous! Like excited but I want to be like ready for work and fun as well as sleep ahaa!
Lisa Preece (6 months ago)
I am SO jealous! Have an amazing time. I know my advice to do everything and also sleep a lot is not exactly easy to follow, sorry! Hope you get the work location you want!
