During the summer of 2016, I worked as a Show Systems Engineering intern in the Show Design & Production department of Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale, CA. Imagineering is a subset of the Walt Disney Company that oversees the design and construction of all parks, attractions, resorts, and shows throughout the global Disney Parks & Resorts portfolio.
Due to the nature of the projects I worked on, I am unable to disclose details about the work itself except to say that I assisted with the design, testing, and implementation of mechanical, electronic and computer control systems for various new rides and shows coming in new park expansions. However, I can say that the new additions to the parks with absolutely blow your mind!
My experience at Disney was transformational both professionally and personally and I was humbled by the trust my colleagues placed in me when working on such far-reaching, exciting, and impactful projects. Keep an eye out for official Disney announcements regarding new park additions!
Have a magical day!
