Student Experiences

"I get to help the show take place everyday, whether it is for Fireworks, our Disney's Festival of Fantasy Parade, or our Main Street Electrical Parade, there's always something happening at the Magic Kingdom. I've worked with many amazing people from around the world, from Mexico to France, to the UK and Australia, to Puerto Rico."Micaela Haggerty '14

"The Disney College Program was life changing and the best experience. There were 7,000 people in the program from around the world. It was like I was abroad, but being in Florida." - Samantha Mackie '14
