Disney Dreamers Academy 2019 kicked off last Thursday at the Magic Kingdom for a four day adventure. Now in it’s twelfth year, this event hosts one hundred students from around the country. Dreamers participate in career focused activities that encourage team efforts. Each day brings new adventures and experiences.
Selfies with Mickey Mouse, a Disney Dreamers 2019 parade and a Welcome Ceremony were some of the highlights of the first day. The one hundred students posed with Mickey in front of Cinderella Castle. They walked, and rode, the afternoon parade route with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald.
Career workshops and Image makeovers were some of the highlights of the Disney Dreamers Academy 2019 second day. Mickey Mouse stopped by to check on student progress during the day. Dreamers were showcased during the evening for a tie and pearl ceremony. Some of the teens showcased their image makeovers center stage.
Ruth Carter, award winning costume designer, presented Dreamers with an inspiring talk. Students showcased their work during Career Open Mouse that evening. The day closed with a Dessert Party designed specifically for Disney Dreamers Academy 2019.
