Orlando Fall Leadership Institute

Join a select group of FCCLA Members and their Advisers for the first ever FCCLA Fall Leadership Institute that will take place in Orlando, FL over October 18-21, 2024. This meeting will focus on expanding your leadership and teamwork skills using the Disney methodology.

Attendees will attend two half-day Disney-led courses during their stay. These courses occur within the park and held in small groups to maximize your experience:

  • Leadership the Disney Way: Students will learn the principles for how Disney leaders create cast excellence, exceed guest expectations, and achieve holistic business results and gain invaluable real-world business experience as they interact with Disney leaders.
  • Teamwork the Disney Way: Students will discover the Disney philosophy and strategies behind high performing teams. They’ll experience firsthand how collaboration and openness enable teams to overcome obstacles and achieve the ultimate goal...making magic for Disney’s guests every day.



Registration takes place in the FCCLA Portal and is required to participate in all sessions. Registration is limited to 240 affiliated members so register early. Advisers must register and are not included in the 240 limit. A limited number of advisers will be able to attend the sessions as official chaperones.
