Disney Aspire is a College Program that is inspiring Cast Members to follow their Dreams. The Walt Disney Company sponsors this incredible program for all qualifying Cast. We were fortunate to learn about this benefit during a panel discussion at the D23 Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse event.
Hourly Cast Members have been granted the amazing opportunity to pursue their educational dreams. The Walt Disney Company will now cover the cost of classes and materials for one Undergraduate Degree and/or one Master’s Degree through the Disney Aspire program. We had the opportunity to participate in a panel discussion with two Cast Members who shared their experience with us regarding this amazing College Assistance Program.
Once an hourly Cast Member surpasses their 90 days of employment, they are qualified to participate. Disney does not require the Cast Members to commit to a particular time-frame of employment with the company. This feature alone, sets Disney Aspire well ahead of similar programs. Also, the degree to be pursued does not need to be related to the Cast Member’s current position. What a powerful message the Walt Disney Company is sending to its team and companies around our great country!
