Charita Carter Senior Creative Producer/Manager Walt Disney Imagineering

Charita Carter is a Senior Creative Producer/Manager at Walt Disney Imagineering and based in LA.

This March (2020), Carter celebrated the opening of a landmark project at Walt Disney World (WDW) to which she was integral as an Imagineer. Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is the world’s first ride-through Disney theme park attraction featuring the entertainment giant’s flagship character. And now Carter is leading the re-imagination of a long-established classic at both Disneyland and WDW’s Magic Kingdom: the soon to be renamed Splash Mountain.

“Charita prides herself on being a ‘geek enabler’,” says one WDI colleague.

A Disney veteran with almost a quarter of a century’s service, Carter was seven when she enjoyed her first Disney theme park experience on a family trip to ‘The Happiest Place on Earth’. She started her career in accounting before becoming a financial analyst at Imagineering. “That opened up the door for me to work very closely with our creatives and our producers,” she told Black Girl Nerds.
