Participants took their Disney Programs to infinity and beyond at Disney Housing’s recent Reach for the Sky Resource Fair! Representatives from a number of different Disney teams and partners were in attendance to help educate participants about resources they can utilize both during, and after, their program. This year’s fair was the first of its kind in Disney Housing.
One of the teams that participants could visit with was from Casting. They helped inform participants of tools they can use to stay on with the company after their Disney Program, such as Transfer Genie and the Disney Interns website. They also passed out fun, Casting-themed magnets. Yay for free swag!
Just around the corner from the Casting booth was the Disney Resource Group table. There, participants could discover the various Disney Resource Groups (DRGs) and how to get involved. Cast members from HOLA, WIN, PRIDE and other DRGs were on hand to answer questions and tell participants about the resources their DRG offers.
Mickey’s Retreat, located just across the street from Chatham Square, had a wonderful booth filled with information about the many recreational tools available to cast members. For example, did you know they offer paddle boat and kayak rentals completely free of charge? Wow! Participants seemed excited about the prospect of hanging out on the water and having a fun, Mickey’s Retreat-day.
The afternoon’s events didn’t just consist of learning, however. Participants were encouraged to join in on the fun! The Disney Housing Events team made their booth interactive by asking for participant feedback on various events, and the Disney Programs Communications team gave out a survey to see what participants are most thankful for this Thanksgiving season. Those in attendance were encouraged to visit as many booths as possible – the more booths they stopped at, the better the prize they could win!
Whether you happen to have a resource fair of sorts or not during your Disney Program, we encourage you to utilize available tools to help you grow and become more involved. No other company offers the variety of resources that The Walt Disney Company does, so use those opportunities to help reach your personal and professional goals. Trust us – you’ve got a friend in your resources!
