  1. How can my daughter apply for this opportunity? She has talked about becoming a Disney cast member for many years. She is a current Sophomore in high school and a talented flute player. She plays in her school’s marching band, concert band as well as their Symphonic band. She is a believer in the magic of Disney.

  2. I believe that my son CJ would be an excellent candidate for this opportunity. He is a current senior in high school, and a very talented singer, trumpet player, and active actor in the theater department at his school as well as show choir, chamber choir, marching band, and other various activities. He is a hard working young man who thinks out side the box and wants to see the happiness of others happen. He also loves to discover the “magic” within the dreams of others. He is an amazing candidate for this opportunity.

  3. My daughter would love this opportunity. All she does is talk about working in animation. She loves Disney and being that we live in FL always talks about how amazing to be a Disney animator as her future career.Where can we apply?

  4. My daughter who is almost 15 would benefit from this. She wants to come and live in Florida when she graduates for the warmer weather. I think this would give her some great ideas.

  5. This would be perfect for my 15 year old daughter. She is a very talented and ambitious young girl who dreams of being a Disney doctor. In fact we will be visiting DW next week!

  6. My daughter had talked about working at Disney for years. She’s 16. I think she would love this opportunity.

  8. My son Trent Lewis has dreamed of working as an imagineer for Disney since he was very young. We are from Ohio and started coming to Disney world when he was four years old. We have come every year since then except two. He is now 15 and currently ranked 1st in his class. He has never wavered from his dream of designing/building for Disney some day. He would love this opportunity!

  9. My daughter Payton was born with an extremely rare life threatening condition and was given little hope of survival. Not only did she survive, she thrives because of her enthusiasm and love of life. She works diligently at her school work, volunteers to do tasks around the house because she wants to learn how to run a household, and looks for ways to be involved at church and in our small community. As a high school junior, she has risen to the challenge of mentoring younger children who have her same medical condition, even encouraging distraught parents of these newly diagnosed children. Payton wants a career in the medical field and your program sounds like an excellent opportunity for her to learn skills that could help her achieve her goals.

  10. My daughter is 16, & going to be a junior in high school. She is hard working, & dedicated to everything she puts her mind to. She has a 10 year history of competitive cheer, & currently runs cross country & is on the cheer team for her high school. She excels in the classroom as well. She has grown into a beautiful, independent young lady…as I am a full time, working mother. We have been to Disney together, & even as a young teen, she still gets teary eyed, when it’s time to return home. She doesn’t know this program of yours exists, & I know it would be a chance For her to uncover her “Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow “.
