Welcome to Your Disney Employee 401(k) Resource* Hub

Disney is the quintessential household name for its relatable characters and storylines, inspiring youthful daydreams of future princesses, knights in shining armor, dragon keepers, outer space warriors, or superhuman heroes. 

With its grand playground of imagery, every Disney detail is carefully sculpted to delight the senses of children and adults alike. The Walt Disney Company is quick to credit its well-deserving cast members and employees as the true heart of bringing magical moments to life - and we couldn't agree more. 

Purpose of this page: To educate employees on your existing options for the employer 401(k) plan you are a participant in. 

 Your Walt Disney Company Investment Options

Great news! Your Disney plan is fairly flexible, allowing for use of 401(k) Optimizer, and participation in an SDBA or in-service distribution. Based on length of employment and employee age, certain plan options may not be available. 

Learn more about the differences between 401(k) Optimization, Self-Directed Brokerage Accounts (SDBA), and in-service distributions:
