Walt Disney World is hosting two large events today that are expected to bring traffic delays on roadways throughout Walt Disney World.
Disney's BoardWalk Resort will be hosting a Veterans Institute Workshop, and speakers include Disney CEO Bob Iger and First Lady Michelle Obama. The daylong event is designed to help small and mid-sized companies build effective veteran-hiring programs. Disney's veteran program, Heroes Work Here, has already surpassed its original goal of hiring more than 1,000 veterans by 2015.
"Our Heroes Work Here program not only helps us find and hire highly qualified veterans, it also supports veterans and their families as they transition out of the military," said Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company. "Were happy to share what weve learned with other organizations so that more of these modern-day heroes have the tools and opportunities to build meaningful careers in the private sector."
Later in the day, Disney's Hollywood Studios will be closing at 4pm to host a celebration for long-service Cast Members. Expect traffic delays on all roadways heading to and from the Studios.
