For many young adults, working for Disney is a dream. Disney offers a program called The Disney College Program that was started in 1981. It is an internship program operated by The Walt Disney Company, located at the Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort. The Disney College Program recruits students (18 years and older) and all majors for a semester-long paid internship program working at the Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort.
