Summer may be over, but the fun and adventure never stops at Disneyland Resort. Our Programs Office in California is always trying to make sure our participants have the best internship experience they could possibly imagine, which includes special events unlike any other. This month happens to have two of my favorite events of the season.
How many of you think you know a lot about Disney and would love to put that knowledge to the ultimate test against other Disney fanatics? That’s exactly what we’re going to do during a scavenger hunt throughout Disneyland Resort.
Our participants will compete in teams of 3-5 to find clues and answer trivia questions throughout both of our theme parks. The winning team will not only earn bragging rights for the remainder of the program, but they’ll also receive a special VIP experience!
I know what you’re thinking. You know everything about Disneyland Resort and your team would easily win. There’s only one way to find out. If you have the chance to participate in the Disney College Program in California, you’ll definitely want to take part in our scavenger hunt. Just a warning, it’s more challenging than you may think and I guarantee you’ll discover things you’ve never noticed before!
Our next event is the Disney College Program/Disney Professional Intern Mixer. Our participants have the chance to chat and mingle with over 50 of our current Disney Professional Interns.
We know that networking is such an important part of the Disney College Program experience, especially for those who are looking to have a professional career with The Walt Disney Company after the program. That’s why we do everything we can to make networking fun and easy during your internship experience.
This event gives our participants the perfect chance to make a connection with other cast members from The Walt Disney Company. Many of our interns apply for Disney Professional Internships after their program. Having the opportunity to speak with other professionals in that area and learn more about their role is something our participants find to be very helpful and beneficial.
Our mixer is designed to help them gain confidence in their networking skills and also learn that networking isn’t always about quantity. It’s about quality. Outside of the mixer, they may only meet with a few professionals during their program. But, If you form a lifelong professional relationship with those cast members, that’s a success!
If you’re a college student (or recent grad) and your dream is to work at Disneyland Resort, submit your application before it’s too late! The fall recruiting season will be over before you know it and we don’t want you to miss out on this opportunity of a lifetime.
You never know, you could even become our next trivia champion.
