When you’re a kid, the thought of spending the whole day in a magical world populated by superheroes and princesses seems like an impossible dream. Then one day you see a flier at the local community college saying Disney is hiring “summer interns” and you think: DREAM COME TRUE.
That is, until you start working there.
If you thought making a career at a theme park was all singing warthogs and fairy godmothers, think again. We talked to a bunch of current and former theme park “cast members” to get the inside scoop on what it’s like to work in that mystical wonderland. After they were finished, we couldn't look at Mickey the same way ever again.
We can make your trip a lot better if you’re nice
If your mouse ears break/you forgot to secure them when you went on the Tower of Terror/ your $11 cheeseburger was undercooked, tell an employee and be really nice about it. We can probably fix it. Guest satisfaction is actually our main job, so we get a lot of leeway to make you happy.
We get promoted if you give us good feedback
So if we DO give your kid a fluffy plush Minion toy because his ice cream cone fell on the ground, take 30 seconds and fill out a comment card. You’re not diming us out for giving away free stuff.
