WDW says it's indefinitely suspending the internship program because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The program was shut down back in early March when Walt Disney World closed its parks.
Participants usually live in Disney-owned apartments. In a statement released Thursday, the company said it doesn't know when that housing will be back open. Disney said it will refund students their fees and allow participants, including recent college graduates, to re-apply.
All four of Disney's theme parks in Orlando are set to reopen in phases this month. On Saturday, July 11 Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom will open. A few days later, Epcot and Hollywood Studios will open on Wednesday, July 15.
