DIS CONTRIBUTORS


Write for the DIS and help pay for your next vacation!

We want you to write for the DIS! We’re looking for everyone and anyone with something to say about Disney, and if we publish your article, you’ll make some money.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Sign up to become a DIS contributor and agree to our terms and conditions below after reading this page.
  2. Once you are registered, we'll send you instructions on how to proceed. Articles can be on a wide range of topics from resorts and theme parks to dining and Disney Vacation Club. From time to time we’ll adjust the list of topics we’re accepting based on what we need for the site.
  3. If we use your article on the DIS, we’ll pay you $25.
  4. Payments are made the 30th of each month via PayPal only.

What can I write about?

Write about what interests you. If you’re a fan of a particular resort, write about it and tell others why you love it so much. If you have something you need to get off your chest – write about it. Had a great meal at LeCellier – tell us about it. Received bad service at the San Angel Inn – we want to hear about that too. Have a top 5 list you want to share – here’s your chance. Be creative! Think about topics that would interest other Disney fans and those planning Disney vacations.

Currently, we are looking for articles on the following topics:

DO

DON’T

Titles

Keep your title descriptive, but short and sweet.

This is the maximum length your blog title can be, so copy & paste this exact sentence for you to reference.


Guidelines for using Photos and Videos with your submission.

We'll leave the creative writing up to you, but please read and follow our guidelines when creating your content for the website.

  1. Any photos or videos you submit for use within your article must meet the following criteria:

    a. You must be the owner of the photo / video in question. That means you are the one who shot the video or took the photo. Under no circumstances can you use photos or videos that you do not own. You may use photos and videos that have been produced by the DIS, but in doing so you acknowledge and agree that the DIS retains ALL rights to said photos and videos. We make these available to enhance your article. You retain rights to your article, but not to any DIS produced media that appears within it.
    b. Photos or videos that are submitted for use within articles must adhere to DIS guidelines. No defamatory, vulgar, obscene or objectionable content will be permitted.

Hyperlinks

We encourage you to put hyperlinks in your article. This is a great way to reference other content, making your article more informative. If it is something that can be found on www.wdwinfo.com, please link to the content on our site.  This includes things like "Walt Disney World", "Disneyland", any attractions, lands, restaurants, etc. Only link the item the first time it is mentioned in the article.

Example
Magic Kingdom, Main Street U.S.A., and Adventureland are all hyperlinks in the sentence below.

This restaurant is in a prime location at the Magic Kingdom, at the end of Main Street U.S.A. as you’re headed to Adventureland.
