The Walt Disney Company International Culinary Training Program in Orlando, Florida

The International Culinary Training Program is a twelve-month internship located at Walt Disney World ® Resort, near Orlando, Florida. The program allows international culinary participants to have exposure to all areas of the kitchen operation, including the ability to understand the financial aspects of a food and beverage operation. Participants are exposed to various food stations within the kitchen and become familiar with the menu and products of the restaurant. The participant will refine culinary skills within the kitchen department.

On-the-job culinary training provides an opportunity to apply what the individual knows in real time and in a real world setting. Participants will share knowledge of the cuisine from the African country they are from with guests and other members of the team while working at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Since Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is a representation of a real African lodge, the participant will share information about culture, heritage, cuisine and traditions from their native land.
