Six Disney Aspire Stories Sweet Enough to Make You Smile This Valentine’s Day

From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Thomas Smith

It’s Valentine’s Day!  And in honor of this holiday all about love, we asked cast members participating in the Disney Aspire education program to share what they love most about some very important people…their study buddies!  Whether a fiancé, a child or even a furry friend, the support and encouragement of friends and loved ones means the world to all of us.  And with more than 12,000 eligible cast members having enrolled in this 100% tuition-paid program, there’s definitely a lot of love to go around for students putting their #DreamsWithinReach.

We love hearing how Disney Aspire is helping cast members pursue their dreams and achieve educational goals, and stories like these are a great reminder that the true impact – and hard work – extends beyond the classroom for both our cast members and their loved ones.   

With more than 400 programs of study to choose from, eligible hourly cast members can pursue their dreams to become teachers, engineers, graphic designershuman resources and legal professionals and more.  Professional coaching support is also available every step of the way. And THAT is truly something to love!

Happy Valentine’s Day
