We’ve hit the halfway point of our spring program at Disneyland® Resort and so many incredible things have happened so far this season. We’ve seen our participants create some unforgettable memories for guests, make some lifelong friendships and step out of their comfort zone to get involved and become a Disney VoluntEAR.
As a special thank you for their hard work and passion they bring to the program every day, we decided to turn back the calendars to 1955 and throw them a party they’ll never forget.
We rented out Mickey’s Toontown and created our very own Dapper Day celebration for the participants. Everyone wore their finest vintage-inspired attire, just like guests did in the ‘50s, and celebrated a remarkable first half of their program.
There were plenty of snacks and treats, an all-night dance party and spectacular photo opportunities with the characters, including Mickey Mouse himself.
Of course, none of our participants had the chance to visit Disneyland Resort in the ‘50s, but it was exciting to see the creativity they put into their outfits, and I loved seeing them look so dapper. So much has changed at Disneyland Resort over the last 62 years, but one thing has remained constant: the park continues to bring so much joy and happiness to people around the world.
We may be halfway through the season, but we’re not done having fun just yet! We’re currently planning some exclusive backstage tours, special events, class activities in the parks and believe it or not, our final celebration, which will be bigger than ever!
Our mission is to create a dream-come-true for our participants during their internship and set them up for success. What can we do to make their final celebration the best party they’ve ever had? After all, they work so hard while they’re here and play such an important role in our everyday operation, we want to go all out.
If you could rent out a section of the park and throw a party for yourself and 400 of your closest friends, where would you host your celebration? You never know; one day you may join us at Disneyland and take part in the celebration of your dreams.
