Internship Information

Dreams really do come true! If you are looking for a chance to gain valuable work experience with a respected company, while also having fun, Disney might be opportunity that you’ve been waiting for.

Paid Internships

Disney offers paid professional internships at the Walt Disney World Resort, the Disneyland Resort, and Walt Disney Imagineering to all students with a GED or higher. The company accepts candidates from all over the United States, as well as international students. Positions cater to a large range of majors such as everything from culinary arts to accounting to criminal justice.

While interning at Disney World may seem like interning on a playground, the company has a “work hard, play hard attitude.” Disney internships are not your stereotypical summer position of delivering coffees and endless photocopying. Instead, interns are required to read, write, and complete projects which will assist them with their daily tasks.

How to Apply

The best way to apply for the program is to visit the Disney College Program web site . The page also offers a detailed description of tasks, skills, and experiences specific to each major.

4 Steps to Applying for Disney Internship

  • Step 1: Attend a presentation on-campus or view an E-presentation to gain a general knowledge of what the program entails.
  • Step 2: Next, is an online application and checklist of qualifications and interests.
  • Step 3: Once you pass step 2, you become eligible for a web-based interview.
  • Step 4: If Disney likes what they see, you will immediately be invited to conduct a phone interview within the month.

Disney interns walk away from their experience with networking resources, writing and verbal communication skills, and sharp problem solving abilities. In addition to career skills, the free theme park admission and merchandise discounts aren’t a bad deal either. Sitting in an office from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. or hitting the water park after your work day is done? I’d say Disney sounds pretty tempting.
