I went into this job knowing I would leave it. My girlfriend, who had worked in their College Program, suggested we take a year together to have fun before we settled into our new life together. While living in Orlando, FL was, personally, a terrible experience, the completely unique set up of Walt Disney World Resort was worth the trip.
Disney World is a place people go to to have fun, and the management works to extend that idea to its employees. Free park tickets and generous discounts are only one of the perks of working here. But do not be fooled, you WILL be put to work. It can be difficult and fast paced and you're expected to do it all while over flowing with positivity, and usually in a ridiculous costume. There are countless positions to be filled and you are encouraged to try new ones, after working X amount of time in one. And they WILL attempt to brain wash you with Disney propaganda, though few of their employees actually need it.
Disney welcomes all types, as long as you play by their rules, which are very fair. Getting to work is a bit like catching a flight; you have to drive onto their property, park in a special lot, go through security and that doesn't even include the walk to your position. But if you're a Disney nerd, love free entertainment or just live around Orlando and need a good job, Walt Disney World Resorts probably has what you're looking for, and they'll reward you if you do well.
