This job was fun. Even when we are receiving our delivery we always seemed to enjoy our day. To working the register, nights, weekends or black Friday, Disney Store was a blast.

Sales Associate/Cashier/Stock Clerk (Former Employee), Miami, FLSeptember 26, 2013
Pros: breaks
Cons: breaks
Working for Disney Store i started working in the stock room pretty much i had to make sure that the merchandise that come in are put away, make sure the stock room is clear by getting the boxes out they way have it clean and organize then at the end of the shift take out the garbage. i also worked on sales/cashier, i helped guest by getting them the – more... size of clothing when it wasn't on the store i had to check on the stock room to make sure if they have the size that they asked. Management at the Disney Store was united everyone helped out the crew and we had good communicate. the most enjoyable part about working with the Disney Store was that environment being surrounded by kids and we could play with them and show a good attitude. – less

Great place to work
Cast Member (Former Employee), Orland Park, ILSeptember 16, 2013
Pros: free disney tickets every season
Working at the Disney Store is great. Coworkers can vary from store to store but the employee's attitude can make a work of difference. If you don't enjoy working with kids, this probably is the place for you. Sometimes the hardest part of the job isn't difficult children, it's difficult adults.

Working as part of the Disney Cast and helping create magic for all the guests.
Sales associate (Former Employee), Destin, FLSeptember 10, 2013
Pros: being surrounded by disney
Cons: it was only part time
A typical day at work at Disney would be after clocking in backstage, I would go to the main stage up front and greet guests and help them find that disney magic they seek. During peak times, I would operate the register and check guests out with their purchase. At night before going home, I would make sure the stage is fully stocked and ready for the – more... next day. My co-workers at disney are always very pleasant and happy to work with during the day. The hardest part of the job would be leaving the magical place at the end of each day. The most enjoyable part of the day would be interacting with different guests of all ages and re-creating the disney magic for them. – less

fun atmosphere
Lead Cast Member/Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Nashville, TNSeptember 2, 2013
Pros: challenging in a great way
Cons: lots of hours, wild schedules
It was a very fast paced environment, with lots of families and children in the store all the time. Lots of fun, great music, happy merchandise....I learned to carry myself in a positive manner at all times, to be extremely organized and proactive, to take charge of situations. I learned how to select quality employees and to help them become even better. – more... Opportunities for advancement were almost endless, and Disney takes great care of its people. No employee was permitted to mistreat another employee, and everyone was expected and required to shoulder their share of the work load. – less

A little break from real life
CAST MEMBER (Current Employee), New Orleans, LAJuly 9, 2013
Pros: awesome part time job, fun, non-stressful, lots of little gifts, fun meetings, volunteer/community events, loving staff
Cons: pay is low, not much room for advancement
In my experience working at the Disney Store, it feels like a family. Everyone, no matter on what level, shares a love for the brand and it brings you together.

A typical day at work consists of greeting all guests, engaging them in storytelling (just talking with them about the characters, movies, or shows they like), and wrapping up at the box office(cash – more... register).
Although it is a sales associate position, it is not pushy. Every store has goals to reach, and it is known that you will have to try and sell items to guests, but it isn't like your typical sales job because people love the products, the authenticity and quality of the products, and the experience that comes along with coming to the Disney Store.

Some days will be better than others, but you know what to expect every day you come in. And you are encouraged to play around a little and be silly, so it's not really like a real job at all.

My co-workers are mostly older adults, although there are some people my age (20's). Also, most have been there for years.

The hardest part will be talking to people and being a little crazy if you are a shy person.
The best part of the job (which you will experience more often than not) is making someone's day when you do use storytelling, or help them get something they'd been looking for but couldn't find.

It definitely is a magical place. – less

What do the benefits consist of? I would love nothing more than to work for Disney. My boyfriend works there and we love going whenever we can but as a disney store employee would I have the same benefits as him? The main one I wonder about is can I get into the parks for free so he isn't always signing me in? Thanks :)

Cons: longs hours and no compassion
Enjoyed giving great guest service and working with my cast.

Fun and entertaining!!!
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Chesapeake, VaJuly 2, 2013
Pros: fun atmosphere!!!
Cons: short breaks, little pay, and little hours!
A typical day was chasing customers down to buy merchandise; any and all items. Sell, sell, sell was your key assignment everyday; to the parents, to the children, to anyone who was near. No rest!!! But it was fun being around Disney theme all day; hearing the music, seeing the toys, it was all very dreamy!!!

horrible place to work
Cast Member (Former Employee), Tampa, FLJuly 1, 2013
Pros: nothing
Cons: every aspect of this job
This is the worst job ive ever had. Staff well management is rude. They made me literally get on my hands and knees and scrub the floors then after two hours sent me home. By far the worst place to work. I have no good experiences there. They gave me little hours and treated me horrible.
