Apply Now For Disney Dreamers Academy

From Geoffrey Pointon, Public Relations Manager, Disney Institute and posted on the Disney Parks Blog.

“The era we are living in today is a dream coming true.” This is one of my favorite quotes said by Walt Disney, a man whom I consider an expert dream-maker because I truly believe that our era is changing the world. With a universe of possibilities, any dreamer can make a difference, which is why Disney Dreamers Academy is selecting 100 high school students to participate in an innovative, outside-the-classroom, educational mentoring program.
