About the Internship

As a component of Mesa Community College, students can spend a semester as an intern at the Walt Disney World® Resort near Orlando, Florida or at the Disneyland® Resort in Anaheim, California as a Disney College Program participant. Interns will work closely with their instructor by creating a Mesa Community College email account and logging their experiences in Canvas.


There are two Internship classes that you can take through MCC and earn a total of 6 Credits. The courses are GBS270AC (Business Internship) and MGT270AC (Management Internship) In order to complete these courses you have a total of three assignment requirements.

Send an email to your instructor within Canvas upon your arrival to say how everything is going, where you are located, and a current phone number where the instructor can get in touch with you.

Midterm requirements: Create a one page paper on how things are going with the internship, the courses you are taking, and your experiences so far in the program.

Final Project: Interns will create a final presentation on their experiences. Be creative! This can be a PowerPoint presentation, a video, a podcast, and interactive photo album, a journaled blog, or anything thing else you might want to use to describe your experience. Use pictures or anything else you would like to share.

While working in entry-level roles, this truly unique program allows participants the opportunity to:

  • Learn important business philosophies and transferable skills from Disney leaders.
  • Gain real-world experience from a highly admired company, which can be invaluable on any résumé and noticed by future employers.
  • Make friends from around the world while living in fully-furnished, gated apartment complexes with security and deluxe amenities.
