Nick Warner

Nick Warner is a native of Watertown, CT and currently attends Emerson College studying media arts production. With many childhood memories of visiting Walt Disney World® Resort, Nick remembers some of his favorite memories involving interactions with cast members. This inspired him to apply to the Disney College Program, and now he has the chance to create magic and memories for guests just like other cast members have done for him and his family. Nick’s Program experience has comprised working in attractions at Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and attending a variety of learning offerings through the Program’s learning component. The classes and learning offerings Nick attends have helped him learn about new areas and departments at Disney while also getting to network with many people in those departments. One day, Nick hopes to become a filmmaker with Disney’s Yellow Shoes advertising agency and create marketing materials for The Walt Disney Company.
