At Walt Disney World Resort, welcome events are never second best! That’s because we pull out all the stops to make sure participants feel the magic from the moment they begin their Disney program: pictures with characters, entertainment, food and decorations themed to a beloved Disney film or character. Here’s a look at some recent events from the spring 2017 semester we’ve hosted to help welcome participants to our ‘ohana:
Jammin’ in the Jungle Welcome Event
Jane and Terk took a break from their jungle life to greet participants at the start of their Disney journey at our first welcome event of the year! With a pop-up campsite, delicious grub and various entertainment offerings, it’s no wonder why thousands of participants joined in on the celebration.
Once Upon a Nightmare Welcome Event
Oh dear, what an awkward situation! Maleficent usually misses an invitation to the party, but this time we gave her full reign as she made Chatham Square her stomping ground for the night. And while the Florida sunshine may not have been out, participants could still enjoy face painting, a themed photo booth, DJ entertainers, free food and the opportunity to meet the mistress of all evil!
Along with these events, the Housing team works hard at putting together a calendar full of exciting offerings. Already this year, participants were invited to learn alongside a Disney yoga instructor at Rise and Shine Morning Yoga and celebrate the month of love with Cinderella and Prince Charming at a special Mystery Character Meet-and-Greet! Plus, we can’t forget to mention upcoming professional sports games, Broadway shows, local excursions and networking opportunities to the list of happenings.
When it comes to Housing events, there’s something for everyone. And while there’s plenty to look forward to throughout the semester, there’s nothing like your first Disney Programs event!
