  1. The Career Start program is a little different from the College Program. The Career Start Program takes only High School Seniors or Graduates and places them into work at the parks. They do not get to take the courses offered by Disney Universty that the CP’s take advantage of and their work schedule is more strenuous.

    The program is geared towards students who are not interested in going to college or are putting off college at a later date, while the College Program are for students already in college looking for an internship.
