As a Disney cast member, I was able to experience and live the magic of Walt Disney World for a semester as a College Program participant, working at Fort Wilderness. It was more than just a job – it was a life altering experience.
The living, learning, and earning components of this internship made it valuable for me, my friends, and now students who I recommend go on this program.
What separates Disney’s internships from others I have been exposed to is that it involves preparing you for not only the time you spend with them, but also for your life afterwards. Learning how to present yourself well, deal with executives, work with people from different cultures and backgrounds, and so many other experiences really shape people into someone people back home may not recognize (and in a very positive way).
My own experience can be summed up as this…
They made me into a human being.
