It’s not hard to find Disney magic filling the hallways of your workplace at The Walt Disney Company. Whether it’s artwork, décor, or hidden Mickey’s, offices at Disney have no shortage of Pixie Dust. When it comes to your desk in particular, it’s up to you to add that magic touch. Here are a few of tips for decorating your desk for your Disney Professional Internship!
- Use fabric as wallpaper.
Don’t like the color of your cube? No problem! Buying a couple feet of your favorite color fabric and hanging it up as a base for your cube walls can easily transform your space and give you a beautiful background to add on to. Plus, it’s a really inexpensive way to make a BIG difference.
- Add a little flair with your favorite characters.
Immerse yourself in your work at Disney by surrounding yourself with photos of your favorite characters! Whenever you’re stuck on a project, you can look up and get inspired by some of your favorite stories that brought the Disney legacy to life. Now, it’s your turn to keep the legacy alive.
- Bring your favorite Disney pins and buttons.
Have an extensive collection of Disney pins or buttons? Bring them in and hang them up on your cube walls! They’re great to admire and remind you of all of your favorite Disney memories. Who knows? Maybe someone else in the office will want to trade!
- Write inspirational messages using a letterboard or lightbox.
Letterboards and lightboxes are super fun and easy ways to add some inspiration for you and your office to enjoy. Use a Disney quote that you’ve always loved, or write something festive for the holidays! It’s always fun to change it up and see who in the office notices.
- Don’t forget about your desktop.
Having a beautiful desktop is something super simple that goes a long way. Find some photos of your favorite Disney Parks and add a quote, or find festive new Disney-themed wallpapers on the Disney Parks Blog.
- Bring your desk to life with flowers, succulents, and plants!
Plants are known to brighten up and liven any space, from your office and beyond. Succulents are easy to maintain and make all the difference. If you’re ever in need of some unique inspiration, get yourself some fresh flowers to brighten your space. Your creativity will be flowing before you know it!
- Make your mousepad matter.
A decorative mousepad might not be the first thing you think about when designing your space, but it’s always important to pay attention to the little details. You can get this vintage Walt Disney Company mousepad at Disney’s Cast Member exclusive gift shop, Company D!
- Sprinkle some Pixie Dust.
Scatter some Mickey confetti around on the borders of your desk, or on your computer stand! This little bit of sparkle adds a whole lot of inspiration to your work day.
No matter how you decide to decorate your work setting, it’s important to have a space that helps you stay inspired and ready to take on any challenges thrown your way during your time as a Disney Intern!
