The Disney College Program has welcomed thousands of students to live, work, and learn at the Walt Disney World Resort (and the Disneyland Resort) since the internship began in 1981. While working at the Walt Disney World Resort during the Disney College Program, students live in company sponsored housing and are able to engage in networking opportunities and take both seminar courses and classes for college credit.

The Disney Alumni Association was created as a way for alumni to keep in touch with updates from the Walt Disney Company and the Disney College Program after graduation. The Association received a new website with more ways for alumni to engage the community online and has continued to expand within the past couple of years, and today the official Disney Alumni Association Twitter account shared that they have reached a major milestone!

If you have completed a Disney College Program and have not registered for the Disney Alumni Association yet be sure to do so at The best way to stay up to date with the Disney Alumni Association and events like homecoming (basically an annual reunion weekend, currently on hold due to COVID-19 but we expect it to be back in the future) is by joining the website or following the Twitter account.
