Very fun work place in a VERY busy setting
Server (Former Employee), Orlando, FLJuly 23, 2014
Pros: lots of time to play, happy kids
Cons: very tired
A typical day at Disney World is different every single day. I was a server at Pecos Bills located in Magic Kingdom. My job was to greet customers, show them to their tables, wait tables and carry guest trays. I learned that working at Disney you have to be very animated and also very patient. They say Disney is the happiest place on earth but there – more... are many times when parents are NOT happy. It's hot, thier kids are hungry and cranky, the lines are to long and they are tired. Many times customers may take out thier anger on you unintensionally. I learned that you should always think about how their day must be going. Just remind them why they came here in the first place. My managers were EXCELLENT. They were always around when help was needed. My co-workers were always in a great mood. They made work very enjoyable. The hardest part of the job was the hours. There were weeks when I worked up to 60hrs a week ! The most enjoyable part of this job was the experiences, the relationships I was able to build, the opportunities I got to experience and just the enjoyment i recieved from working with disney. – less

Whistle while you work! Hi Ho HI HO
Cashier/Food Service Worker/Hostess (Current Employee), Anaheim, CAJuly 22, 2014
Pros: music, love, laughter and living it up! serving others real joy!!
Cons: four hour shifts only get 15 minutes for break! not enough time to get your lunch, visit the restrooms and sit down 5 minutes. use your time wisely before and after your shift!
Disneyland Resort is a wonderful and exciting place to work!
It's like traveling the world in a back to the future time zone!!
You don't have to travel the world because the world comes to
you through the many beautiful and diverse groups of people
from around the world ...they are our guests! What can be more exciting than that?

THE time zone is about – more... all the lands you can visit; and our Disneyland Resort is truly a small world of many opportunities! – less

Productive and consistently busy.
Attractions Cast Member (Former Employee), Lake Buena Vista, FLJuly 22, 2014
Pros: amazing co-workers, amazing managers.
Cons: none.
I loved working at Walt Disney World, it was probably the best company I have ever worked for. A typical work day was consistently busy with meeting tons of new people from different backgrounds and cultures on a daily basis. I learned how to provide excellent customer service and view things from a different point of view or how to emphasize and . – more... My managers were awesome, they were always there when any of the cast members needed something. My co-workers and I were like one big family, everyone was there for each other, there was no drama just teamwork. The most hardest part of my job was trying to speak to someone who was from a different country and didn't speak English, but to learn simple words to be able to communicate with them efficiently was awesome. The most enjoyable part of my job was to meet with different people from different backgrounds and cultures on a daily basis and to make someone's day absolutely magical whether they had a birthday or an anniversary. And to be able to interact with kids on a daily basis and to get to know them personally and know their names and where they come from. Just the guest interaction was amaizing. – less

Best place ever to work
Crew Member (Former Employee), Lake Buena Vista, FLJuly 17, 2014
Pros: good food, fun and people
Cons: can't eat food after the restaurant closes
I was in the Walt Disney College Program which was a fun experience. I got to get in all the disney parks for free. I learned alot about working in a restuarant. I also made friends with the people worked their 365 and the people in the college program. I even got asked weird questions like "When does the Animal Kingdom open so we can pet the animals – more... (and at that time I was working at MGM Studios). Their were good and bad times, but I learned alot about myself and how it is to work as a Disney cast member. – less

Merchandise Trainer (Former Employee), Lake Buena Vista, FLJuly 8, 2014
Pros: lots of perks- free time in the parks, discounts, etc
Cons: poor leadership
The company itself is fun and interactive. great work ethics to abide by and aim to excel in. The management team lacked communication as well as professionalism but that's just the area I worked in. My fellow cast members brought me joy and several will remain my friends for life. I enjoyed training and offering what Disney means to me to those that – more... are just starting. – less

Cons: insceurity-which has improved through the years.
challenging job from the beginning, met people from all over the world for the first time in my life.learned how to work in an orderly fashion & "do it right". got lots of satisfaction in seeing kids & parents enjoying some of what were the fruits of my work. learned an awful lot about engineering & quality work. to many frequent layoffs in the 70's – more... due to inconsistent crowds visiting W.D.W. too seasonal & feeling of insecurity when you have a family. – less

Working for Disney is a positive life changing experience
Disney Photopass Photographer (Current Employee), EPCOTJuly 3, 2014
There is no such thing as a typical day in the Disney parks. Each morning thousands of new guests come in and interact with us! I've been a photographer for Disney for only one month now and have been trained on the newest, top of the line Nikon cameras. Everyone in my department has been a joy to work with, particularly management. They are a phenomenal – more... group of people who truly care about our well-being. The hardest part would be the heat and sun exposure. As someone with nordic pale skin, I burn easily and am miserable for a majority of daytime shifts, not from poor interactions, but from heat exhaustion. The most enjoyable part of my job is capturing memories for families as they experience Disney for what may be the first, last or thirtieth trip for them! We provide tangible memories that can stay for a lifetime and I take so much pride in being able to talk to new families every day, find out where they are from and what they like, and finally helping them capture their happiness in that very moment. I love my job. – less
