WALT DISNEY IMAGINEERING
"One of my great passions is design. At Imagineering, we use design principles to realize a vision of a world, and bring that to life in physical form. Design creates a sense of place and emotional connection."

RIDE MECHANICAL ENGINEER
“One of the things that I love about my job is when we hear the word creative or innovate, a lot of times we might think of our more artistic fields. But engineers here are constantly designing. I mean, we are designers. And so we’re the creative and innovative people as well.”
“We invent new technologies; we put things together that aren’t necessarily meant to be together, but once they are they do something really magical and amazing.”
“At the end of the day, it’s about creating happiness but through that we also inspire a lot of people to chase their dreams, to imagine the impossible and to do something they have never done before, I think that’s the most rewarding part of the job for me.”
“Imagineering is full of amazing people. They all bring in different talents and different abilities. And I think if you’re a good collaborator, you’ll be able to offer the best part of you but also get the best part of other people.”
We are proud to have the most talented designers, architects, engineers, project managers and other professionals at Walt Disney Imagineering. We look forward to reviewing your application.
Disney is an equal opportunity employer. Drawing creativity from diversity.
