According to Aguel, Disney Institute programs are unique in the world of business. “What makes the Disney learning experience so different and meaningful,” says Aguel, “is that we don’t simply teach theory. We showcase philosophies and strategies that have made the Walt Disney World Resort a success – ideas that are easily adaptable to other organizations. We do this by taking people inside the Disney operation, showcasing on-stage and behind-the-scenes locations so attendees see firsthand how it all happens.”
