Disney Aspire is expanding! The education investment program for hourly cast just added the University of Central Florida as a network school for Disneyland Resort cast members. Additionally, Disney Aspire has added new offerings from the University of Arizona. With more than 30 new programs to choose from at these two universities, cast members can pursue degrees in nutritional studies, industrial engineering and much more. 

Whether learning a trade, growing language skills, earning a high school diploma or earning a college or master’s degree, Disney Aspire puts career dreams within reach and enables cast members to pursue their educational goals. In the program’s first year, more than 40 percent of the 90,000+ eligible cast and employees have taken the first step to sign up to participate, and more than 9,500 have enrolled in classes.
