There are at least four 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 Anaheim in Anaheim, California, is the administrative headquarters of the Disneyland Resort. It contains the offices of resort President Michael Colglazier. 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. 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.
