As a part of the Disney College Program, participants have the incredible opportunity to advance their strengths and interests, meet guests and cast members from around the country and take part in educational opportunities students can’t get anywhere else. This truly unique program allows participants to network with leaders, take part in personal and career development classes, and build transferable skills such as problem-solving, teamwork, guest service and effective communication.
Disney College Program participants will have the opportunity to meet and live with people from all over the country, and potentially from around the world, within our housing complexes. These complexes are diverse in their amenities and offer the opportunity to meet fellow participants and create a sense of home in a comfortable living community.
One- to four-bedroom apartments are available, with two to three participants living in each bedroom. Bedrooms may include two twin beds or one twin bed and one bunk bed.
Participants’ housing accommodations will be finalized upon registering on their check-in day. All accommodations are assigned based on gender and whether participants are over or under 21 years of age.
Housing is only allowed for participants of the program, and no one under the age of 18 is permitted to live in our housing.
