Disney College Program Issues Update Regarding Recruitment at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort

After suspending the Disney College Program at the start of the COVID-19 closures, and cancelling the Fall 2020 program through January, Disney has given an update today regarding program recruitment.


The following update was issued by the Disney College Program via their @DisneyInterns Twitter account, stating“Disney values the return of Disney Programs. We look forward to sharing more updates as they come.”


DCP went on to clarify that they have still not recruited participants for upcoming semesters and are still uncertain about when they will be able to resume the Disney Internships & Programs division.

When the Fall 2020 cancellation announcement was made, participants were reassured that eligibility requirements for all programs will be amended so those participants who have already been accepted will be able to reapply, even if they have already graduated. All program fees have also been refunded. However, despite this “update”, many who had their programs cancelled midway are still in the dark as to what the next step will be for them as graduation nears.

Our hearts go out to Disney College Program applicants who were looking forward to making magic this year.
