D23 Expo is right around the corner, and we know guests are busy mapping out each day in anticipation of exciting experiences, breaking news, and lots of Disney magic. From can’t-miss panels to incredible show floor experiences, we know that everyone’s to-do lists must be jam-packed with activities. While exploring the show floor, fans should definitely leave some room in your plans for two brand-new experiences that celebrate two of The Walt Disney Company’s groundbreaking initiatives.
Meet Disney Recruiters at the Disney Aspire Pavilion
Have you dreamed of becoming part of the magic? For the first time ever, Disney recruiters will be on the D23 Expo show floor at the Disney Aspire pavilion to meet with guests. Disney Aspire is The Walt Disney Company’s groundbreaking education investment program that enables Disney’s hourly employees to follow their educational dreams—while The Walt Disney Company pays for 100 percent of the tuition up front at schools in the Disney Aspire network. Introduced in August 2018, Disney Aspire is the most comprehensive education investment program of its kind, offering more than 290 degrees and programs at 11 educational institutions. Committing $150 million over the next five years, Disney Aspire: covers all costs associated with tuition and required books and fees; offers choice and convenience with multiple programs, classes, and scheduling options; provides individual coaching for employees from application to graduation and every step along the way; and does not require the employee stay at Disney after the completion of their degree or certificate. Disney recruiters will be ready to speak to attendees who may be interested in joining Disney and being a part of our story of entertaining and inspiring people around the globe. Whether you’re looking to create magic in our Parks and Resorts, support growth and development in one of our growing businesses, work behind the scenes on production, or anything in between, this is your opportunity to start the next chapter of your career and help create the exhilarating experiences Disney is known for worldwide. Stop by the pavilion to learn how you could be part of the story and discover more about the Disney Aspire program.
Join the Disney Team of Heroes
Guests are invited to walk through The Walt Disney Company Social Responsibility Pavilion and discover all the ways Disney is working to be an honorable company that delivers comfort to those in need and creates inspiration and opportunity for those who want to improve their world.
In March 2018, Disney debuted a bold $100 million, five-year commitment to support children’s hospitals around the world as part of its Disney Team of Heroes initiative. The suite of experiences, murals, and interactive art aims to provide comfort and inspiration for children and families. The hospital concepts were designed by Disney creatives, technology and storytelling experts, and the world-renowned Imagineers and feature favorite Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel characters. Disney Team of Heroes is Disney’s philanthropic and outreach initiative that delivers comfort and inspiration to families with children facing serious illness, as well as the Company’s work in wish-granting.
After the Disney Team of Heroes experience, guests will also be able to take part in a VoluntEARS activity where they will be able to assemble hospital care packages for kids in children’s hospitals.
