College Program Details

Disney’s College Program is a semester-long paid internship at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando or Disneyland in Anaheim.

Through this program, students are given the opportunity to serve in a “front-line” role in various careers in the theme park industry. Students can work in the parks, work at the hotels, and serve in various capacities in the operation of the theme parks while also earning college credit. Additionally, participants live in company-sponsored housing together with other program participants.

This program was temporarily stopped in March 2020 due to the COVID pandemic. The fall program was canceled, but we now have hopes that it will be returning soon!

Chapek’s Announcement

During today’s shareholder meeting, Chapek announced that, while there is currently no official date for when the DCP can resume, its participants are a “tremendous asset” to the company. He believes that they will be able to return to the parks once there are fewer capacity restraints.

Without giving away any specific dates or details, Chapek stated that he hopes that College Program will be able to return by the end of the year.

  1. My daughter was selected for the 2020 Fall Program. Would love it if those who were accepted but canceled due to the pandemic were among the first invited back. They have already been interviewed and selected which would be advantageous for Disney making the process move along quickly. This would also give most of those accepted what might be their last opportunity to participate. My daughter is hopeful!!

  2. Bring back the college program alumni to work. My daughter was scheduled to return just as COVID hit. She hoping for another chance.
