– Walt Disney[/box] Every beginning will in turn have an ending and to commemorate these last eight months of work, education and overall commitment the Disney College Program at the Disneyland Resort, we couldn’t be happier to celebrate the accomplishments that all of the students have made during this last spring program. The night of August 6th, at promptly six o’clock, every student dressed to impress and lined up to celebrate their final accomplishments of the Disney College Program.

The students were treated to a sit down, plated dinner as they listened to their very own Disneyland Ambassadors, Megan and Sachiko, congratulate and introduce Disneyland’s Vice President, Jon.

As Jon addressed the students he encouraged them to remember that no matter what happens in the future, they’ve all shared this experience together and they always have this to look back on; he hopes that they use what they’ve learned here to help them in their lives both personally and professionally.  In his conclusion, Jon highlighted that all students should take from this experience a lesson in patience and to treat everyone, no matter who they are, better and with respect.

After dinner the night continued with dancing, pictures with Mickey and Goofy in graduation attire, dessert refreshments and take photos with friends in the photo booth for a fun take home photo to remember the night.


The Disney College Program is truly a journey; from arriving and going through Disney Traditions, to classes, dances and events  and most importantly making the magical memories and creating relationships that will last a lifetime. The celebration was just that, a festivity to celebrate the closing of one door and the excitement of opening a new one.
