I want to know what colleges in Florida would be a good choice to get into Walt Disney Imagineering. I want to go to FAMU, UM, FSU, UCF, Florida. I really want to major in architecture and minor in conceptual art for Disney.

WDI is very heavily in Engneering as well! So, engeering schools are a good option too!

Quick plug for the University of Illinois, my alma mater, which is an excellent engineering program. I have heard that there are a few Imagineers from U of I.

FSU is another college I have heard about!

WDI is very unique position so its not certain what they are exactly looking for.

Thanks for asking this question, because I was very curious as well. I want to probably major in civil engineering and minor in either architectuarl engineering or something like urban/master planning (if that is a possible major). I've always wanted to be an Imagineer, definetely at the top of my list for lifelong goals.

I've dedicated my professional life to it. I'm currently finishing my master's degree in mechanical engineering in hopes that it gets me into the theme park industry!
