Each semester, thousands of program hopefuls apply for a Disney program. If you’re selected for a program, chances are you can’t wait to show off your new status! While Mickey Mouse ears and Disney Parks t-shirts are certainly necessities, there’s an even better way to represent for Disney Internships & Programs. Here are the best ways to stock up on your new favorite Disney merchandise:
Visit a Company D location
Once you’ve completed Traditions and have become an official Cast Member, you’re welcome to shop at any of the Company D locations for official Disney Internships & Programs merchandise! You’ll find t-shirts, mugs, stationary and more! Make sure to ask about Disney Housing lanyards to represent the complex you call home.
Attend Housing events
One of the best ways to score free Disney Internships & Programs merch is to attend a Housing event and join in on a game of trivia! You’ll have to earn these giveaways, so brush up on your Disney knowledge before heading to one of the pool parties, welcome events or capstone events where the prizes are offered. You’ll leave with a higher Disney IQ, a full stomach (hello free pizza), and special Internships & Programs merch! Keep an eye on your Communicator and weekly email for upcoming events.
Sign up for the Disney Alumni Association
After successfully completing your program, you’ll be eligible to join the Disney Alumni Association! Not only is it a great way to stay connected to the company and fellow program alumni, but it’s also a hot spot for exclusive merchandise. Picture luggage tags, water bottlers, stickers, hats, sweatshirts and even more items. As new items are released twice a year, your collection will never be complete! Plus, you’ll receive a welcome packet with some fun freebies just for signing up!
Planning on showing off your new program merch on social media? Make sure to use #DisneyPrograms. Remember, you’re always representing the company whether you’re rocking the logo or not, so make sure your posts are Mickey-Mouse-friendly!
