6) Benefits for Full Time

If you can get on full time with the Walt Disney Company, you’ll enjoy plenty of benefits. You’ll be eligible for medical, dental, vision, life, accident, and disability insurance. You’ll receive paid holidays, sick days, and vacation time. You might also be eligible for education reimbursement and learning opportunities. There are other benefits that both full and part time employees enjoy as well.

5) Save for Retirement

It’s never too early to think about your future, which is why you’ll want to find out more information on the 401(k) plan that is offered to Disney employees. The company will match what you put into it. Salaried positions are harder to come by than hourly, but if you can find one you’ll want to learn more about the Retirement Savings Plan that you’ll be eligible for.

4) Plenty of Discounts

You don’t have to be a salaried employee to enjoy discounts. Walt Disney World cuts the costs of food, merchandise, and accommodations for cast members.

You might be pleasantly surprised by how much you can save.

About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
