Seriously...
WDW has a division called the Disney Institute. It used to have classes in cooking and animation and such, and used to host a spa (no more and that saddens me). Today, however, it offers leadership seminars and the like.

You have to admit, Disney is a very successful business and their customer service is better than most...

Oh, I do. And, AORN hired Disney to present their business/leadership workshop for a leadership cadre several years back; I got ot attend it. Very well done. Furthermore, I figure that's where the income is for WDW, the business/leadership seminars, which is why they've gotten quite good doing them.

Also, historically there is a connection between the U.S. armed forces and Disney. During WW2 they did a lot of training films for the various services; this continued up to the Korean War, I think. Some of those films are still used, I imagine.
