    Is anyone thinking of going traveling after the ICP finishes? I really wanna go but cant decide where to finish - either LA or NY is what I am thinking. You can get a bus pass that lets you just get off anywhere in USA, which I think would be amazing.

    So who is up for a good old fashioned Road Trip???

    I cant :(

    My uni starts up about a week after i finish the program and i need to be back to fill out forms and things and get stuff prepared.

    I'd love to go to NY or LA though...maybe i could fit in a couple of days

    I can't go after I'm done. Gotta get back for school four days later. I would love to go to like New York during the summer, if I could get like four days in a row off. It prob won't happen but it would be cool.

    hey there my plans exaxctly

    i finish on like September 1st as well as Emma which is handy...
    Im 21 in September so as a sort of present to myself i suppose iv made sure i have a week to spare before my flight back so i can go up to NY and have a mosey round.. i went to LA a few years ago and personally im not a fan... OBVIOUSLY things like the Chinese theatre are worth seeing but LA itself, in parts is a little run down and iv just heard that NY is sumwere EVERYONE should experience... i cant afford a flight back to america for a while so may as well use my time there wisely ey...

    I am totally up for a trip after ICP finishes, the only problem I can think of is that people from different countries finish on different days.

    Yeah my family will be here so we're all going to do the Disney Cruise. Actually I have to find out about that because apparently you can't book them for after your program end date because they take away your ID, but I'll be going to Company D soon to ask about it so I will let you all know :p

    Yeah you need to show your ID at check in for DCL. Similar to checking into a resort. I went on the 4 night cruise on my second last week of work. I honestly don't know how that would work. You could certainly book it but then I don't know how you'd get around check in. :-\ hmm.. let us know what you find out.

    Hostels in NYC..... be careful. I've stayed in a few dodgy ones. :eek: ;D I scarily arived in NYC one friday night, on my own, with nowhere booked to stay and tried to find a hostel. FYI not a good plan. ;D Especially for someone who is normally an obbsessive planner! :D But I'm still proud that I made it through that though. If I can do that, I can do anything! ;D

    Interestingly, I just found out that Megabus (you know the £1 journeys from Glasgow to London etc.) have started up in the US. $1 trips from St. Louis to Chicago. How fab! Especially for skint CPs. ;D

    Strange that isn't it. :-\ Bizarrely however, I appear to have something bearing an uncanny resemblance to a disney ID in my purse. ??? ??? ???

    On a more serious note, your ID may be valid longer than your program end dates. Last year, the program end date was September 9th, but the ID's had an expiry date of September 30th. So that might help you.

    Did you book with STS ?

    If you did you should phone them up before and ask weather it's possible, or how easy it is to do it.

    Can anyone tell me what the CM discount is for Disney cruises? That might be interesting... :)

    I dunno if Shayna (Spelling?) will actually get one. I'm pretty sure the cruise discounts come after you work for 90 days, and I'm not 100% sure about how long the College participants work for (Shayna is one correct?).

    I'm pretty sure the college participants work for pretty close to that period, and then I think you also have to show your Disney ID when you board the ship thus if the program is over you wouldn't be able to get the discount anyway.

    Maybe I'm wrong but this is what I've gathered from various posts around the forum... anyone got a better idea?

    Hey Jorden!

    Shayna will be down there 3 1/2 months so she might qualify...any idea what the discount is?

    I think it depends on the airline. I know with WestJet in Canada, you can change it as many times as you want, they just charge like $30 or so. I think it would be possible with most airlines though, but at a cost.
