Lead (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – October 15, 2017
Disney can be a great place to work, but it's not for everyone. Advancement can be tough, especially if you start off in Park Operations. Benefits are decent and the vacation and sick pay is great if you are Full Time. The low pay is the most common reason for employees leaving the company.
Photographer (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 10, 2017
I loved working for the Walt Disney company. You meet new people everyday you work and get to help make their experience at Disney as magical as possible. The hours could get crazy but a lot of times the experience was worth it.
Dedicated Cast Member (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – October 9, 2017
Loved working there. Job was sent out of state. Hard to get back in once out. Not many places do you get to see the joy on the faces of guests knowing you were part of making them happy. Really miss it! Pay is lower than most in the work arena. Many cast activities to participate. Perks are great. Have been trying to get back for a very long time.

CASHIER AND BARISTA (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – October 9, 2017
Working at Disneyland is quick paced but fun. I have learned a lot about how to give excellent customer service. It's an eye opening job because the people you work with becomes your family! The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people and interacting with guests. The hardest part of the job is trying to satisfy everyone.
Steward (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – October 9, 2017
great place to work had to do dishes and take out trash and put dishes away and load the dish washer and take the dishes out and put away and take the cardboard to the bailer and trash to the compacter
Working at the Magic Kingdom is super fun! People are often very nice and respectful. Making magic for people is so uplifting. There are a lot of safety critical roles, which can be stressful, but usually it is easy going. There is quite a lot of foot traffic in the parks for the most part. It is a huge company, and it is easy to get lost in the crowd sometimes. Rewarding job otherwise.
A typical work day varied depending on my location. I didn't really learn anything new. Management was consistent. Workplace culture was nice. Hardest part of the job was wearing costumes in the Florida heat. Most enjoyable part was that you got to be inside the park.
Boutique hostess (Former Employee) – Lake Buena Vista, FL – October 8, 2017
Must really love Disney to be able to work here. Guests are horrible and mean. Management really only cares about money and favoritism is everywhere and hard to move up unless you are on the college program
Cultural Representative (Former Employee) – Buena Vista, FL – October 7, 2017
A day at work is preparing for the restaurant to open. Making sure that we are ready to greet the Guests and help them with any sort of questions they may have. I mostly interact with guests to help them have a memorable stay at Walt Disney World
I really enjoyed working at Walt Disney World . I loved interacting with guest and the people I work with . The hours went by fast because we where very busy and fun . The weather was ok if you didn't mind it . It didn't bother me. the enjoyable part of the job was meeting the guest . I really miss working there.
Service Excellence Coordinator (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 7, 2017
Disney World was a great experience for me. I had the privilege of performing around the world for Disney and was given a unique opportunity to create a new position to improve and oversee service excellence for the Disney Parks in Florida.
