We’ve gotten some BIG Disney news lately!
One of the biggest announcements is that the Disney College Program is resuming NEXT month after being on pause for over a year, with modified eligibility requirements and brand-new housing. We’ve slowly been receiving more information about what the program will look like, and now, we have some updates on housing.
As we mentioned, Disney College Program participants will be housed at the brand-new Flamingo Crossings Village complex. And now, Disney has announced a gender-neutral housing option for these participants. Those who opt into this gender-neutral housing will be placed in an apartment regardless of gender. Previously, College Program housing was separated on a gender basis.
As usual, participants may choose to “link” with a roommate, who will be placed in the same room as them. Those who choose to live in gender-neutral housing may link with a roommate of any gender — and their other housemates can be of any gender, too.
Disney has clarified that this process is completely optional: while it is available in all apartment styles, only those who check the “gender-neutral housing” category when registering will be placed in these living arrangements. Gender-neutral housing is also subject to availability.
This change comes in the wake of Disney’s addition of a fifth key — Inclusion — to their Four Keys. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for any and all Disney College Program news. Stay tuned to DFB!
