Breaking news Insiders! The Disney College Program has been suspended for over a year due to the pandemic, but they have made the announcement today that this beloved program will be returning to Walt Disney World this June!
Here is the official announcement from the Disney Programs website:
Along with much of the world, we’re encouraged by the progress made possible by rising vaccination rates and recently revised guidance around health and safety measures. And while we’re seeing some additional positive signs, we still have a ways to go to a full recovery. This summer we are opening more Disney hotels, sports and convention groups are returning and we are reintroducing some of our guest-favorite offerings.
As our industry and community continue to bounce back, we have welcomed back thousands of cast members to work and have also restarted our recruitment efforts amid a tight labor market at Walt Disney World. Both of these measures are important indicators toward fully reopening our businesses and getting more people back to work.
Right now, we are also ready to welcome back students and are excited to announce the relaunch of the Disney College Program this June. We are inviting participants whose program ended early or was suspended in 2020 to reapply and join us. Today, May 3, these participants will receive exclusive communication via email about this exciting opportunity.
This is such exciting news for students, especially because they are allowing participants whose program ended early or was suspended in 2020 to reapply this year!
Also exciting news for Disney College Program students-The new state-of-the-art Flamingo Crossings Village complex will be the first participants to call this beautiful new community home! The apartment complex will offer a variety of amenities, including a resort-style pool, study areas, and fitness facilities! Heck, I already graduated years ago but is there a way for me to sign up?!
For those of you that are familiar with the Disney College Program website, you’ll probably notice the site has a whole brand new look! Their redesigned site offers a fresh look with user-friendly navigation and a streamlined approach. Disney’s goal of this redesign is to provide you with an easier way to learn about the Disney Programs and to browse for information based on your interests.
