Long Hours, busy work place
INTERNSHIP (Former Employee), Orlando, FLAugust 26, 2014
Pros: experience, benefits
Cons: long walk to work, bad hours
A typical day at work would involve changing at wardrobe then going to the specific work location assigned. However that would not be your permanent location, in the next hour or two would be moved to a new location. In one shift you may be switched to at least four new locations. Also working there is never an easy day, with the constant flow of guests.

I – more... learned that you always are moving and making guest interaction because there will be a guest asking you questions about anything related to the park or the store you are in.

The most enjoyable part of the job was able to spread "the magic" with the little kids and the guests. Knowing how far they have traveled to get there, we have to bring that magic to them that they came looking for. – less

Merchandise Coordinator Designee, Trainer & Host (Current Employee), Lake Buena Vista, FLAugust 24, 2014
Pros: well organized company with great benefits
Cons: lower pay, not a static schedule always, seniority plays big role in decision making
I have been at this company for over ten years now. It has been the best job I ever held in my life which is why the ten years has been so easy and went by so fast. I work merchandise, so a typical day for me would be helping guests find and make purchases and keeping the shops stocked, clean, and safe. I'm also a Coordinator Designee, which means I'm – more... handling more difficult guest situations, making sure my cast are getting their breaks and working safely and efficiently. I'm also responsible for the opening and closing of our several shops. I'm also an Area Trainer, so teaching new cast and existing cast new policy's and procedures or making sure current ones are being done correctly is a part of my job too. – less

Part time crew (Former Employee), Orlando, FloridaAugust 20, 2014
Pros: discounts to walt disney world and some other shops.
Cons: short breaks.

- Hardest part of the – more... job was to remain calm and hospitable when customers were pushy and rude during the peak hours.
- The most enjoyable part was to be able to experience the Disney culture. – less

Good Employer; Need to be realistic
Merchandise Coordinator (Current Employee), Orlando, FLAugust 20, 2014
Pros: good established company, can be really fun
Cons: takes a lot of time to move up, repetitive days
Good place to work. Guests can be great or not. You need to go into the job with a realistic mindset. Days can be repetitive, but it's mostly fun work. Can take a few years to move up through leadership.

Is a good place because they implement the security first. All time that you make a job, you need your safety first. The company slogan is " The safety beginning with my". For this reason the people that work for Disney implement all time the safety first.

Overall, very fortunate to work for such a great company.
Communicator, Marketer and Event Manager (Current Employee), Lake Buena Vista, FLAugust 18, 2014
Pros: recognition, advancement, job security
Cons: poor salary
Although I do believe most positions are underpaid and overworked, I understand and appreciate the value that the Walt Disney Company beholds. I've held numerous positions within Walt Disney World, and am grateful for each opportunity. I do believe that it's becoming increasingly harder to advance in my area of expertise (communications and marketing,) – more... and that for me has been the biggest disappointment as of late. I recently acquired my MBA and would like to advance my career to the next step with my degree, and it's just so challenging. I'd like to stay with Disney if given the choice, but I also realize that sometimes one must go outside their comfort zone in order to find the opportunities and advancement one is looking for.

All in all, working for the Walt Disney World Resort has brought many more good memories and experiences than bad, and I would recommend working there to anyone who is not "in it for the money," because the people I work with are great, and the company does its best to provide a positive work environment for its Cast Members. – less

Fun place to work
Guest Relations Hostess (Former Employee), Anaheim, CAAugust 16, 2014
I worked at the Disneyland resort as a college student and really loved it. The atmosphere is dynamic and lively, and there is constant interaction with other people. That being said, the hours can be inconsistent depending on the season, so it can be difficult to live off a regular cast member wage.
The other cast members are typically easy to work – more... with and I had great experiences with the management staff. It can be difficult to work with some guests and you are always expected to give optimal service so this position can be emotionally draining for some people, but all of the positive guest experiences are worth it! I highly recommend working at the Disneyland Resort! – less
