Question about a role: What are balloon vendors categorized as? Are they technically merchandise? Do CPs ever get the role of balloon vendor and if so..HOW? Thanks!!
The balloon vendors are separate from the usual merch roles. I was told by someone that they are actually third party hired but I'm not positive if that is true, but I know for sure they are not considered a regular merchandise cast member. In short, CPs will not be balloon vendors. All other ODV is possible depending upon location, but not balloon vendors.

Hey y’all, is there anyway to just do summer? I know they say it’s only for alumni but I can’t take a semester off. I’ve been offered a position three times but I keep having to turn it down.

It unfortunately is only for alumni and they've already had issues opening it up to those who are outside of the general DCP parameters. HOWEVER, you can do the program after you've graduated. You can apply to the DCP now up to a year after your graduation date.

Also, I took a semester off for my first program and just graduated a semester late which was no big deal for me. It might not be the case for others, but it is fairly common for people to graduate later than originally intended due to the DCP.

Hi all! I am new to this forum, and I am starting my DCP on April 22nd (SO SOON AHH). However, during my program, I will need to take a weekend in May off, due to the fact that I have to attend my graduation in Rhode Island. (My school has trimesters, so I received my diploma in February, but have to wait until May to walk). For anyone who has done/currently doing the DCP, do you think it will be frowned upon to ask for this weekend off? I heard that they are usually pretty good when it is school related requirements, but I am not sure. Also, when I get there, how would I go about asking them for this time off? Thank you!!

Hi
Can someone please list the roles that you can choose from? Do you then list your preferences on your application?
Thank you.
