There are at least five buildings in the United States which carry the Team Disney title. Each serves as the administrative headquarters for key businesses of The Walt Disney Company.
Team Disney BurbankBurbank, California, has served as the corporate headquarters of The Walt Disney Company since 1991. In January 2006, the site was rechristened Team Disney – The Michael D. Eisner Building in honor of former Disney CEO Michael Eisner. 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. This building was featured in the 1996 film Spy Hard, a Disney release. 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 contains the offices of resort President George Kalogridis. 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 Downtown Disney 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.
Team Disney Hong Kong in Lantau Island, Hong Kong, is the administrative headquarters of the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort and also serves as the Walt Disney Imagineering Hong Kong Site Office. Also known as "Team D", it opened in 2005 along the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland. Casting is also done in this building.
