    It's my childhood dream to be an Imagineer, but I'm not an engineer unfortunately. I'm and English major, and the only thing you could really do with that is work in Story Writing (which i would love love LOVE to do) but it's a super exclusive branch of Imagineering.

    What else can I do as an English major (with a focus in drama btw) at Disney?

    Have you looked at the list of professional internships? It might give you an idea. There is every job you can imagine SOMEWHERE in the Disney company.

    I have a BA in English and I'm an MOD at a Disney resort. Y'know there's a song about us English majors:
    "What do you do with a B.A. in English?
    What is my life going to be?
    4 years of college and plenty of knowledge
    Have earned me this useless degree!"

    OK, that said, there are ALL KINDS of communications roles, I just saw a "senior writer" role posted which was responsible for daily journalism type things. There are social media roles, resort communications, Guest communications. Lots of places to put an English degree to good use.

    Haha, Avenue Q was an awesome musical. That line was really funny in the opening.
