Disney Internships and Programs has announced that the Disney College Program (DCP) at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World will remain suspended until further notice.
The news was shared via @DisneyInterns on Twitter, with an announcement prepared for both domestic parks:
For Disneyland, which is still waiting on the proper reopening guidelines from the State of California, has not determined a reopening date for their housing complex for the DCP; Walt Disney World is in a similar boat, with many of their housing complexes closed and no reopening date in sight.
As a result, the DCP will continue to be suspended until further notice at both resorts, and all offers of employment have been withdrawn for the future. Program fees to those who accepted will be refunded.
“We imagine this is not the news you were hoping to hear and we want to assure you this decision was not made lightly. We are committed to our Disney Programs and will resume in the future, when the time is right,” said Disney Internships and Programs in their statement.
Disney also shared that the eligibility requirements to participate in the College Program will be amended for those who want to re-apply in the future to include those who have recently graduated.
The Disney College Program came to an abrupt end this past March at Walt Disney World due to the resort’s COVID-19 closures.
