Happy New Year! I hope you had a terrific holiday season. Now that we’ve turned the calendar to 2022, our team is not only welcoming thousands of spring program participants from your schools, we are also gearing up to begin recruitment for fall Disney Internships & Programs opportunities.

Disney Internships & Programs Application Updates for Fall 2022 Opportunities

  • Disney College Program – Our DCP application will go live by Monday afternoon (1/24) on DisneyPrograms.com. Freshman through recent grads (up to 24 months since graduation) are eligible to apply for consideration for the Disney College Program. This application will remain open into March. I will provide an exact closing date when finalized. As a reminder, please direct any student questions to our Programs support site – Support.DisneyPrograms.com.
  • Professional Internships – These major specific internships (must minimally be a Junior with experience within your major) are being posted as we speak. More of them will continue to be posted over the next few weeks. Students interested in applying for these opportunities should check DisneyInterns.com regularly/daily as positions update often and may not remain posted very long.

Please note – Our Disney International Programs and the Disneyland College Program remain paused until further notice.


Get to Know the Disney College Program Sessions Are Back

After experiencing an overwhelmingly positive response when they debuted in the fall, I’m thrilled to share the Get to Know the Disney College Program general information sessions are returning beginning on Tuesday (January 25th).  Below are the specific days/times of the week these virtual 30-minute sessions will be offered along with the appropriate Zoom links. Our goal once again is to provide students flexibility. Therefore, we’ll host sessions on Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday through the first week of March. Here are the specifics…

Every Tuesday at 10am (January 25th through March 1st)


Every Wednesday at 3pm (January 26th through March 2nd)


 Every Thursday at 3pm (January 27th through March 3rd)



Educator Site Visits

Another exciting update…I can confirm we will be resuming Educator Site Visits in 2022. We are still finalizing details, but I expect our formal request form to ‘go live’ on the Educators tab of DisneyPrograms.com in early March, with site visit opportunities likely resuming as early as May.  Much, much more information to come likely in my next message to you in February.


Reminder – Performance Evaluations

Quick reminder for your students who require a performance evaluation at the end of their Program. While we are unable to complete school specific evaluation forms, we have an approved Disney Programs Performance evaluation that can be completed and provided to the participant upon request. We just ask that your students formally request one from a leader in their work location 3-4 weeks prior to their program departure date.


It is such a great pleasure for me to lead our University Relations responsibilities and have the opportunity to work with you. Thanks so very much for all of your support for our Internships and Programs!
