7 Reasons Why I Want To Work At Walt Disney World

Of all the job options Walt Disney World has to offer, I believe there is something to fit everyone. Entertainment, culinary, and corporate careers are just three branches the world of Disney has to offer. Cast members run the show. They are the ones who transform your theme park vacation into an experience. Who wouldn’t want to be a cast member for the “Most Magical Place On Earth?”

7. The location:

Walt Disney world resort is located in the heart of Florida: Orlando. Within a 30 mile radius of the parks you can find Seaworld/Aquatica, Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure, outlet malls, Downtown Orlando, and so much more. By living and working in the Orlando area, you’ll have access to all of these fine attractions nearby, including all Walt Disney World Resort has to offer in itself!

6. The environment:

Walt Disney world has earned the nickname of being the “Happiest Place on Earth.” As far as working environments go, that sounds pretty hard to beat. The upscale, high-energy, theme park setting is wonderful for any employee. One of my personal favorite parts of working here is the fact that everyday will be new and another exciting experience with a whole new group of people… which brings me to the next point.

5. Meeting new people:

Every day, about 130,000 people visit Walt Disney World. And with each new day there’s a whole new group. A vast majority of cast members go through their day talking, interacting, and making memories with guests. If you love meeting new people and talking about your experiences, working for Walt Disney World just might be perfect for you!

4. You’ll bring joy to yourself:

I’m positive that the job requirements for working at Walt Disney World do not require you to plaster a smile on your face at all times. Yet, every cast member is all smiles when you see them. Why is that, you may ask? THEY LOVE THEIR JOB. By bringing joy to guests and employees, they in turn bring joy to themselves. If that’s not a win-win career, I don’t know what is.

3. You’ll bring joy to others:

Ever since I was a little girl, and cast members would say “Well hello there, Princess!” I’ve always wanted to be able to bring that joy to others. Putting a smile on the face of another person is rewarding in so many ways. Seeing a child’s face light up can’t help but put a smile on your own face.

2. The benefits:

Apart from basic job benefits including medical insurance, ample vacation time, and retirement plans, the rewards (both mental and physical) go “to infinity and beyond.” Every Walt Disney world employee receives free admission to the parks for anytime they want. Even when it comes to the entertainment industry they will never lay you off. They will do whatever they can to keep you employed. When Disney can no longer use someone for a face character, (Princesses, Gaston, etc.), they will still keep them employed doing other entertainment duties.

1. Your love of Disney:

Does just thinking about taking a ride on Space Mountain or a bite of a Mickey Ice Cream give you a warm, fuzzy feeling? If so, you may be a fellow Disney addict. Some people just love Disney and everything about it. There’s nothing that can compare to Walt Disney’s ideas, including his parks, films, and cartoons. Seeing myself as one of the people who loves every aspect of Disney, I couldn’t imagine a better place to have a career.
