Housing Fees

Walt Disney World Resort (in Florida)

Weekly Housing Payment
Housing costs range from $103 to $200 (costs subject to change) per week depending on the size of the apartment and which apartment complex a participant is assigned to live in during his or her program.

Housing costs are automatically deducted weekly from cast members’ paychecks, so they don’t have to worry about turning in a check at the beginning of the month. This cost includes all utilities such as electricity, cable hookup, waste disposal and local phone service; as well as the various resort-style amenities featured at each complex.

Fees due upon accepting Disney College Program invitation
A total of $355 (the Program Fee and Housing Fee) will be due at the time a participant accepts his/her invitation to participate in the program. Please note that this fee must be paid by credit card/debit card as a single payment. Once the payment is received and the online acceptance process is completed, we will officially reserve the participants’ place on the program.

  • Program Fee ($225)
    The one-time non-refundable fee helps support the administration, events and activities scheduled in the housing complexes throughout the program.
  • Housing Fee ($130)
    This required non-refundable fee will be applied to the participant’s housing costs during the first week of the program.
