DesignationsMichael Graves

There are at least four buildings in the United States and two elsewhere which carry the Team Disney title. Each serves as the administrative headquarters for key components of The Walt Disney Company.

  • Team Disney - The Michael D. Eisner Building (Burbank) in Burbank, California has served as the corporate headquarters of The Walt Disney Company since 1991. Executive chairman Bob Iger, chief executive officer Bob Chapek, and several other senior company officials who report directly to them have their offices in this building. It sits at the western corner of the Walt Disney Studios campus in Burbank, where it towers over the intersection of W. Alameda Avenue and S. Buena Vista Street. It was originally known as Team Disney Burbank, but in January 2006, it was officially rechristened with its current name in honor of former Disney CEO Michael Eisner. The 2012 Driehaus Prize winner Michael Graves designed the building, which features large figures of the dwarves from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on its facade acting as caryatids. In front of the building is the Disney Legends Plaza which features the hand prints and signatures of persons honored as Disney Legends and a version of the Partners statue. Like the rest of the Burbank campus, the building has been occasionally borrowed for shooting by the company's film and television units. For example, it was featured in the 1996 film Spy Hard, a Disney release, and various exterior corridors can be seen in Season 1, Episode 20 of ABC's No Ordinary Family (as the secret GlobalTech facility).
  • Team Disney Anaheim in Anaheim, California is the administrative headquarters of the Disneyland Resort. It is home to the office of resort president Ken Potrock. The building occupies the former site of the Global Van Lines headquarters. Disney purchased the property in the 1990s and the 1950s-era Global building was razed. Its replacement, designed by architect Frank Gehry, opened in 1995.
  • Team Disney Orlando in Lake Buena Vista, Florida is the administrative headquarters of the Walt Disney World Resort. It opened in 1991 and is three times larger than the Team Disney Anaheim building. Designed by architect Arata Isozaki, it sits across from Disney Springs near the Walt Disney World Casting Center. It claims to hold the largest sundial in the world. It is home to Finance, Accounting, Business Insight & Improvement, and Legal departments. The building also features large silhouettes of the dwarves from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the front entrance of the building. This building was featured in a Thunder in Paradise episode as the location where a laser meant to sabotage a space shuttle mission by the hands of terrorists.
  • Team Disney Anaheim
    Team Disney WDI in Glendale, California is the administrative headquarters of Walt Disney Imagineering.
  • Team Disney Hong Kong in Lantau Island, Hong Kong is the administrative headquarters of the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. Also known as "Team D", it opened in 2005 along the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland. It also houses the resort's casting centre.
  • Team Disney Paris in Marne-la-Vallée, France is the name used for the administrative and operations headquarters of Disneyland Paris. It is located at the rear of the park.
