A SHORT BRIEFER ON DISNEY
We know for a fact that a lot of us know what Disney is because of the theme park and its movie creations.
But, what is Disney, really?
The Walt Disney Company, which is more popularly known as Disney is an American diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered, as referred to on Wikipedia.
Based at the Walt Disney Studios complex in Burbank, California, the company’s initial success actually dates back to the mid to late 1950s. It was due to that success that Walt Disney, the man behind Disney, decided to build another theme park on a much grander scale.
True to his vision, on October 1, 1971, Disney World opened the gates of Magic Kingdom to the public, and as they say it, and then the rest is history.
Currently, there are a dozen Disney theme parks across the globe. However, in the Unites States alone, there are six.

Babble is a parenting blog that started in 2006. In just a year, it grew to half a million readers every month.

- Disney Family Sundays

As you can see, there is a wide variety of topics to write on. Unfortunately, though, the site no longer provides a link to where you can submit a post. You might want to contact them instead to know more about this writing opportunity.
Cambrick Yard, LLC
Cambrick Yard always hires freelance writers, editors, as well as reporters, photographers, and YouTube presenters to particularly cover topics that are related to Disney.
If you are interested to apply for any of these positions particularly, the writing post, all you got to do is send an email with a sample write-up and your payment requirement. Wait until the company notifies you regarding the status of your application.
If you are not familiar with DIS, it’s actually a Disney-related theme park website that pays $25 for articles and other information about Disney theme parks.

Theme Park Tourist writers are required to submit two articles per month, which is absolutely doable, right?
Of all the sites that invite writers who write Disney-related articles, we got to say that Theme Park Tourist is definitely one of the most generous.
Surely, it would be nice to put on your resume that you worked or are working at Disney. But you know, sometimes, the universe would not just conspire to make your dreams happen.
However, although technically not affiliated with Disney (but who knows, maybe in the future?), you can make your dreams happen by starting a blog, building a blog that focuses mainly on Disney.
There are actually blogs out there already that focuses on providing articles about anything Disney-related. As a blogger that talks about Disney, you can focus on a particular niche to set your blog apart. It could be a how-to blog, a feature (on different Disney theme parks) blog, etc.
The thing about putting your own blog that talks about Disney are that you are your own boss, which means you can fully decide as to how your blog would come to be. You make all the decisions. You are your own boss, which can be tough sometimes. But hey, remember that Disney should be fun.
Anyway, as a blogger writing about Disney stuff, the earning potential is endless. In fact, successful bloggers out there earn as much as six to seven digits a year!
Since your topic is Disney, and we all know how popular Disney is across all ages, plus a combination of well-written blog posts, it should not be hard to gain high blog traffic, which is essential for your blog to earn.
By the way, as a blogger, there are different ways you can earn from your blog site. You can earn through affiliate marketing, sponsorships, donations, ads, as well as collaborations. Who knows, maybe I time Disney would invite you for a collaboration, which is definitely not impossible to happen.
FINAL THOUGHTS ON WORK AT HOME DISNEY
Disney is Disney. In fact, there’s nothing tantamount to it. It’s not just a theme park or movie, it’s more than that! Disney is every little child’s fantasy. While among adults, it’s one of those companies the young at heart would want to be part of.
Given the changes over time, it’s nice knowing that Disney has learned to cope. While onsite workers are definitely needed to ensure people of all ages get that exemplary Disney experience, the company has also opened work from home opportunities for those who cannot work on the site.
More so, a lot of other companies have also opened work from home opportunities for Disney lovers. To be honest, it’s nice to know also that there are companies that provide opportunities for people who love Disney but couldn’t land a job yet for the world’s most popular theme park.
Are you a Disney fan? How does this make you feel? Seems like a dream? Well, don’t worry, this one’s for real.
