Imagineering fans, get ready! If you’ve ever been one of many guests who’s visited a Disney theme park and found yourself inspired to dream, build and create, there’s a new online program you just can’t miss!

Imagineering in a Box’ is a free online program that brings together the diverse talents of Disney Imagineers around the world for a one-of-a-kind learning experience and is part of Disney’s commitment to helping today’s youth create the future they imagine. 

The series offers 32 videos in which Imagineers share how they use a wide range of skills – from story development and conceptual design, to math, physics and engineering – to create immersive experiences. The online curriculum aims to ignite curiosity, inspire creativity, and encourage innovation in the minds of students and teachers alike, while creating fun and engaging opportunities to explore new concepts.

Modules range from a tutorial on engineering software, to an interactive exercise where learners are encouraged to gather items around them and create something new.

Each activity is designed to be scalable, allowing individuals to learn on their own or in a classroom setting.

  • Oh, please, Disney always does the impossible, not the logical! That’s why I love Disney!

  • This is absolutely fantastic! My 13 year old’s goal in life is to be an Imagineer and she was so excited to see this online program. She has already selected and watched a few of the videos she was most interested in, and she now plans to start at the beginning and run through the whole program. She would love to have something that goes into more detail and is more in depth than this program, but she has really enjoyed the videos she has watched so far. Thanks Disney!
