  1. 18-19

  2. 19-20

  3. 21-22

  4. 22-23

  5. 23-24

  6. 24+

    Select the poll option that shows the age that you will be when you arrive and the age thy you will be when you leave. For example, I am 23 now, but I will be 24 when I arrive and 25 when I leave, so I would select 24+.
    I'm really interested to see how many 2014-2015 CRPers are my age.

    you are not the oldest by a long shot. I'm the oldest CRP currently at the Rose and Crown (and I turn 30 this year) but there's plenty of people that work there permanently that are older and I would say most people are over 23

    Your age isn't that bad. Actually, I imagine there will probably be more older people. I was going to apply in the summer, as I'd be 18, but I'd rather wait until I was at least 21 to go. I've seen from several people that it's better to go when you're older

    I'm 24 and turning 25, from what I've seen there's a massive mix!

    I'll be 20 when I arrive and 21 when I leave. I'll be 21 for majority of the program.
  8. hi there, i was just wondering if Age is important to Disney? Cause i am not 21 anymore ;) so i kinda always feel i might be too old to get accepted but then I see that also some of you are around 28 and up?

    I was 19-20 my first program, this time around I'll turn 26 5 days after I arrive. It will definitely be different being one of the older ones this time!

    Do you think Disney favour particular ages when they look at applicants? I participated on the ICP in 2008 when I was 20 and am now hoping to apply for the CRP this summer and am 26 but will be 27 in December. Do you think this will go against me as the majority seem to be under 25?
  12. When I was there last (2010) there were PLENTY of people above 25! I don't think that'll be a problem. :)

    I dont think they look at the age. Unless youre 50. I think the reason why there is mostly young people is because the majority of the applicants are young. This program is something that fit in the life for young people after high school and between studies. When you are older and have a job and a house you dont have the same opportunity anymore. When i was there last time most people was between 18 and 22, but there was ages up to 30. So dont worry about the ages. You can have fun working for disney if youre 18 and if youre 30 :)

    Awesome! Thanks guys! Fingers crossed then! I'll be gutted if I don't get it now. Been wanting to since I returned in 2008 but jobs etc stopped me. Now I've got no strings to hold me down (sorry - couldn't resist!) I want to bite the bullet and do it so I don't keep thinking - what if!?

    Hi, it's been 10 years since I last posted on here, I was 25 when I did the cultural exchange programme and I would say that there are a real mix of ages. Think the oldest living on the commons complex from the UK pavilion was about 40 and the youngest 18. I can honestly say hand on heart, it doesn't matter how old you are. It is still the best thing I have Ever done, and still talk about it with as much passion and enthusiasm. Have a great time, I wish you well on your adventure. :) oh and visit earl of sandwich for me, please.
