Disney Welcomes First Wave of College Program Students Again

ORLANDO, Florida – Disney is bringing back one of its most magical programs.

Walt Disney World officials welcomed the first batch of new Disney College Program students to Central Florida on Tuesday.

The program was suspended in March 2020 after the theme parks were forced to close due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In early May, Disney announced that the program would restart in a whole new way.
