I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in October 2013.

Interview Details – Got a mail to setup up a phone interview to go over the job description with the hiring manager followed by basic interview questions. Asked about previous internship experiences and what type of work was done. Interview questions were HR related like Have you faced any failures, Any kind of disputes among team mates and how was it resolved, etc. Got call from HR after two days regarding the offer

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in April 2009.

Interview Details – 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.

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in November 2011.

Interview Details – 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.

The process took a day - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in September 2011.

Interview Details – 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.

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Disney Parks & Resorts in March 2012.

Interview Details – 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 Question – 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 Details – 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.
