Disney Internships and Programs Instructor Spotlight: Claudia


Are you interested in taking Disney College Program courses and seminars during your time on the Program at Disneyland Resort? Meet Claudia! Claudia is a part of the fantastic pair of instructors for the Disney Internships and Programs Education Team at Disneyland.

Claudia’s “Disney Story” began in 2011 when she joined the Disney Education team. She came to Disney after working several years for the University of California at Riverside. Her positions at UC-Riverside consisted of both working in Student Employment as a Coordinator and then Career Counseling. This work experience and her student affairs background made her a great addition to the Disney Internships and Programs Education Team. Claudia currently facilitates the Leadership Speakers Series and teaches the Blended Learning Series course. Additionally, she facilitates the Professional Development series for program participants. Claudia is a great resource for questions regarding careers and professional documents such as resumes or cover letters.

Here are a few facts about Claudia’s Disney Side:

Favorite Disney Character: It’s a tie between Belle and Lewis (from Meet the Robinsons)

Favorite Ride: As a mom, her favorite ride has become Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree.

Favorite Memory: In 1999, there was a big concern with “Y2K” and what would happen in the digital world when the year 2000 hit. It was New Year’s Eve in 1999 and Claudia convinced 30 of her family and friends to all spend the evening at Disneyland. She figured if anything crazy happened at midnight, there would be no better place to be than at Disneyland.
