During the recent company shareholder meeting, Bob Chapek made a few comments on the status of the Disney College Program and if any dates could be shared.

Although Chapek said there was no specific date for when the program could restart, he said it likely would depend on when the company could start lifting some of the pandemic restraints at its parks. They are currently hopeful for later in 2021.

“We hope to be able to reinstate that once some of the constraints on the number of guests that we can actually put into our parks starts to ease up with the pandemic as it starts to resolve itself.”

There are “no specifics” that the company could promise right now. Later in the meeting, Chapek was asked if exceptions would be made for students who may have graduated during the program’s hiatus and missed their chance to participate. Chapek said the company had not considered that but he would follow up on it.

The Disney College Program was suspended in March 2020 as Disney World began shutting down its theme parks in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
