As highly evolved (for the most part) people that we are we tend to identify people, places, things, and emotions based on color cues. If you see a piece of food in tuperware at the back of the fridge and it isn't the color that it should be then you automatically know that chances are it's no good. If you are surfing the web and suddenly your computer screen turns blue, without reading the message you already know that your $2000 laptop or desk top has just turned into a $2000 paper weight.

So what about purple?

Well chances are if you are reading this, then you are a fan of disney, you are interested in the college program, and you already know what I am getting at. The color purple is a magical color thatcan turn even the darkest day into the best day of your teenage or young adult life. The color purple will symbolize your immediate transformation from an everyday run of the mill Jane or John Doe into an anybody who's anybody. That's right you know what I am referring to:


That's right! From the moment you open up your mailbox and realize that among the many menus for chinese take out and the notices from the housing department that you are on your 5th or 6th warning for a noise violation there is one peice of about 9' by 12' envelope with a mouse on it that towers above the rest. And as you rush to the elevator in your dorm you fight back the urge just rip it open right then and there because you know that in it lies the one thing capable of making you lose focus in all of your classes for the two to five weeks that it took for it to arrive. And as you enter your dorm room you slam the door shut and throw everything off your bed or desk so that nothing distracts you from the magical moment you are about to have. You then regain some composure and for the first inch of the envelope you use your finger to slowly rip rip so as to not disrupt the integrity of the envelope. But then you realize you still have eleven inches to go and you say screw the integrity and you shred the envelope like a lion eating it's prey and that's when you see it:


I will be using this blog to inform, entertain, and do pretty much what I want in terms of the disney college program. This first entry was meant to serve as a quick intro for the blog and why it is called The Purple Folder. My next entry will be a short blurb about myself and some preliminary information about the Disney College Program, so stay tuned and have a Zip-A-Dee-Do-Dah-Day.


  1. Hi, I've just applied for the International CP in the UK, solooking forward to seeing what happens. i blog on
    its really for UK people who dont know what to expect yet at WDW. Tim

  2. Is it possible to fall in love with a blog? Because I think I just did...

    I just finished reading your entire blog and I got to say it's the best one I've read by far.
    I'm hoping to apply for fall advantage 2010 and I don't know if I should thank you for giving me something to read while the time comes or blame you for making me more impatient to wait for that time to apply...
    I've decided to thank you. REALLY...THANK YOU. This blog is amazing and every entry I read just convinced me more and more that the College Program is something I most definitely want to do. :)

  3. WOW....I really appreciate that.....but seriously, I cant say enough good things about the program. If you have any questions about the application process or just any questions in general whether its about the parks or the program, post it and I would be more than happy to assist in any way I can.
    Have a Magical Day!!!

  4. Well,I shall take you up on the questions thing.
    I don't remember you mentioning anything about the classes they offer to CPs and if you did... I'M SORRY! I have a horrible memory!!
    Anyway, my question is, did you take any classes over there? and if you did which were they? any good?

  5. Alright here's what I will say for now. I did take a couple of classes while at Disney and I will talk about them in the near future. The thing is, there are many types of classes and classes offered that its going to take me a while to talk to friends and put things to gether. But look for it soon.
