Disney Institute Launching ‘50 Years of Magical Learnings From Walt Disney World Resort’ Online Course

Disney Institute is introducing a new online course about the creation of Walt Disney World in honor of the resort’s 50th anniversary. In the “50 Years of Magical Learnings from Walt Disney World Resort” experience, users can click on various locations on an interactive map to take virtual lessons and get a behind-the-scenes look at the last five decades of Walt Disney World.


Users will get access to exclusive videos, downloads, and activities. They will hear from opening-day and current Cast Members, Disney executives, Imagineers, and operations leaders to learn how they continue to bring Walt Disney’s vision to life.


Users will get a look at “backstage” areas such as Disney University, where Cast Members go through training, and learn about the methods behind the magic.

Here’s a sneak peek from Tom Thomson, Disney Institute content manager and former Walt Disney World Ambassador (2000).
