    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in July 2012.

    Interview

    I made a good impression to a recruiter at an Internship fair. I had two filter phone interviews asking me why I loved Disney and what type of person I was. After I passed the filter, I was added to the intern database where my manager-to-be found me and gave me a call.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Orlando, FL) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I applied directly on the Disney page. Was contacted a week after. Consisted of two phone interviews, pretty standard, and was informed of the decision 3 weeks after. The interviews were with very friendly people, one with an hr person, and the other with an actual area manager. Questions were mostly situational, with one or two testing subject area where you will be working.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Anaheim, CA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    It was pretty basic but I think I was too nervous to provide concise answers. My HR suggested I apply for the Disney College Program instead because it may provide leverage to eventually applying again for a professional internship. I was a little disappointed since I would not be furthered to the next round of interviews but I'm still trying to stay positive. My advice is just to relax yourself because the interviewers are really nice and try to make you feel comfortable.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts (Orlando, FL) in April 2009.

    Interview

    It was a 30 minute phone interview where she asked me many questions about myself and where I go to school and where I saw myself in the future. I answered everything with a smile and a very light hearted positive response. She was very nice but warned me my desired role would be a very competitive one. I smiled again and said that's no problem, I think I would be great for this role.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in March 2012.

    Interview

    Apply through application portal on the Professional Internship site. Very clear requirements. There is an initial phone screen with someone from HR. Then if selected to continue with the next step in the process, there will be another phone interview with someone in the overall department of your desired internship (Finance for example). It takes awhile to receive an offer as there are so many applicants. The whole process took about two to three months from application to being extended an offer. One may have an in-person interview if you live in Florida.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you do if you were asked to see if building a new Disney theme park would be a good idea? What steps would you take?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You have to accept the initial offer verbally before you even get to see the details of the offer which is kind of weird. You then get a couple of days to officially accept it through their internship portal.
