    Re: Developing contacts with WDI...

    Except in some very rare cases, WDI won't touch anyone that isn't proven. I have had the rare opportunity of working as a contractual show writer for WDI ... this was accomplished through a combination of 1) being good at what I do, 2) working hard at it, and 3) just being in the right place at the right time with the right friends.

    The best advice I can honestly give you is to work hard at your craft on your own, and as a freelancer with other companies. Don't actively pursue Disney at this point in time, necessarily. Work hard on your own - with originality being the key focus. Don't try to be Disney-esque. Just be good and original at what you do. Build your portfolio; make it solid. As your professional contacts expand, as your world expands, you will develop a large networking pool ... if a good deal of this work takes place in Los Angeles/Orange County, you'll eventually find a contact into the entertainment industry, and then into the Disney world.

    I'm sure there are more direct ways to go about this - I know nothing of their scouting or hiring policies with people who approach THEM, but this is an organic way of going into it. It takes hard work and dedication - but that's what is needed for true success in your own right and large contractual/freelance jobs with other companies as well.

    Best of luck!
