Day 1: Welcome Parade

Fun, inspirational and empowering times were had at the 2015 Disney Dreamers Academy, held annually at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. One-hundred outstanding high school students from around the country engaged in the four-day program with media mogul Steve Harvey and Essence magazine. BET.com was down in Orlando following the Dreamers' activities. Take a look at photos and highlights from the event held March 5 to 8. — Natelege Whaley (@Natelege_)
