Can I submit an idea?

Our long-standing company policy does not allow us to accept or consider unsolicited creative ideas, suggestions or materials. In connection with anything you submit to us – whether or not solicited by us – you agree that creative ideas, suggestions or other materials you submit are not being made in confidence or trust and that no confidential or fiduciary relationship is intended or created between you and us in any way, and that you have no expectation of review, compensation or consideration of any type.

Can I apply for a job that is currently not listed?

If you don’t see an open position that matches your skills, you can create a profile to join our talent pool. Continue to check back to apply to open positions. You may also opt-in to receive to email updates on our latest news.

Can I apply for multiple roles?

Once you have created a profile, and if your skills match the requirements for more than one position, you can apply for each position individually.

What is your interview process?

The selection process varies slightly for different roles based on the unique challenges of discovering the right candidates. We will review your resume / work and if there is interest we will contact you directly with next steps which might include requests for more information, a phone conversation or an interview. Our interview process is a collaborative effort between our hiring managers and recruitment.

Will I hear something after I apply?

Once your profile is created you will receive a confirmation email. Due to the number of submissions it does take time to review applicants. It is not possible for us to reach out to everyone with specific feedback. If there is interest in your work you will be contacted directly with next steps. When a position has been filled the posting will be removed from the website. If you do not hear from us directly, don’t be discouraged. You can follow our Events Page for other opportunities to connect and/or opt-in to receive to email updates on our latest news.

How often should I apply?

Whenever you have updated your work, resume, added a new skill set to your experience, or changed your availability date you should update your profile. If we have an open position that matches your skills you should apply. If you don’t see a current opening you can add your work to our talent pool depending on your discipline. You may also opt-in to receive to email updates on our latest news.

Can I mail in/drop off my portfolio, reel, or resume?

Because of The Walt Disney Company policies regarding unsolicited submissions, we only review materials that have been submitted through our online process. If you need an accommodation to follow this process please contact us here.

If you would like to submit your materials please visit disneyanimation.com for information about our online process. As part of the process, you will have an opportunity to upload your portfolio, resume, reel and shot breakdown.
