Disney Institute’s 1-Day Professional Development Training Courses Now Available In Florida

Disney Institute professional development course

In 2014, we announced the debut of our newly re-imagined professional development courses. Available at both the Disneyland Resort in California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, these unique learning experiences teach business professionals Disney best practices and insights, which participants can take back and apply to their businesses or professional careers.

Now, as demand for our Disney Institute training continues to grow, we are excited to share even more news! Starting in March 2015, some of our popular 1-Day professional development courses will be available at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. (Most recently, Disney Institute’s 1-Day courses were only offered at the Disneyland Resort in California.)

By adding 1-Day courses to our Florida roster, we hope it creates more opportunity for professionals who might find a shorter learning experience to be a better fit with their busy schedules. The 1-Day courses also offer more curriculum flexibility within a condensed timeframe in that participants can choose to experience two or more of our most popular topic areas, such as Leadership Excellence and Quality Service, all in the same week.

Packed with invaluable Disney insights and learnings, our 1-Day courses inspire participants to think and act differently. The eight-hour session includes an instructor-led educational workshop, supported by a field experience that take participants out of the classroom and behind the scenes of our theme parks, resorts and other operational areas to see and experience firsthand our business practices in real time.

Often described by participants as their “a-ha!” moment, exclusive field experiences are one of the most unique aspects of our professional development training courses. By letting participants observe for themselves in our “living laboratory,” they can better understand how Disney’s time-tested methodologies are operationalized and examine principles of business excellence in action.

And, of course, for those professionals looking for a more deeply focused learning experience within a specific topic area, the 3 ½-day and 5-day professional development training courses will also remain available at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
