WDI is the master planners and designers of the Disney theme parks worldwide. I know that some DISers want to be Imagineers, as do I. So here is where we can talk about it! Enjoy!

Q: How many Imagineers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Does it have to be a light bulb?

LOL!!

I would love to be an imagineer too. I love to think of new ideas, and I'm good with science and math. -not to mention my state-of-the-art pillow forts :rolleyes: -

Animation or being an artist would be cool, but i can't draw that well xD.

I also want to do an internship at Disney. Either Junior Imagianeering or as a general cast member. -I hope I can get a degree in engineering from Georgia Tech :goodvibes -

There is one called "Walt Disney Imagineer: A Behind-the-Dreams Look at Making the Magic Real." I like it, it is very descriptive.

There is also a series that they have recently come out with titled "The Imagineering Field Guide to the _______" So far, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom. Disneyland is coming out on November 4. Hollywood Studios is coming out next April next year.

They have classes there, and you can work, as paid internship. It looks really neat!

Did you know that WDI was originally known as WED Enterprises? It stands for Walt Elias Disney.

I always wanted to be an Imagineer. I'd put in a Tarzan tree surfing coaster and a Hades from Disney's Hercules water ride.

I have thought of a Ariel themed ride. Put it in "Pooh's Playful Spot" Have it be the same type of ride as Primeval Whirl.

It was gonna happen but was canceled. If you have the Little Mermaid DVD there is a virtual ride through of it ::yes:: .

I'd want to give Treasure Planet some kind of park recognition. Part of my plot to get a sequal xD.

Btw I know I'm bumping a kinda old thread, but it's been a while since I've been on :p.

Actually it's going to be put in at Disney's California Adventure. (Little Mermaid, that is) It's going to be a beautiful dark ride and I've heard something about animatronic hair??


Hi I'm Alice- Imagineering freak. I want to go on that Adventures By Disney tour of Disneyland/Hollywood/Jim Henson Studios/Imagineering so bad. Last year I did lunch with an Imagineer at the Brown Derby in DHS- and WOW! I loved talking to someone with a job I so covet.

I have these books :) I love them.

I've written letters and e-mails to countless people anything related in WDI but I get very limted responses and unfortunately not very helpful. Just details about the international programme which I already know tonnes about.

Hello fellow Imagineer admirers :)
