    I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and employee recognition.

    Cons

    Parking for employees - depending on where you work you may have to park and walk a distance or even ride a bus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider scheduling with hourly cast members - closing and then opening the next morning with those who work a longer distance away.

    Former Employee - Concierge in Orlando, FL

    I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts

    Pros

    I loved working concierge because it was always a challenge. Every guest situation was different which will keep you on your toes and will keep you from getting bored. An added bonus was I loved everyone that worked there. The whole front desk team really is a family.

    Cons

    The cons would be how slow it is to move up, the pay, and rude guests at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your current employees as potentials for any advanced position openings first because they are the ones that know and love your resort the most

    Former Employee - Quick Service Food and Beverage Cashier in Lake Buena Vista, FL

    I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I mean, it's Disney. I happened to work in an area where I got to see all the parades, fireworks, etc. and so for me, I felt very part of the action. Plus the perks! You can't beat them. Most of the guests were happy to be there.

    Cons

    I hated the commute. Although I only lived about 35 minutes from Magic Kingdom, the process of parking, getting my costume, getting on the bus, and going to my location took time and I usually had to leave my home about 1.5-2 hours before my clock-in time. At times, the park can get really crowded and overwhelming and rude guests are the worst, but there are rude people wherever you work. The pay may not be a lot, but again the perks are amazing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think I have any! My leaders were awesome and helped with any issue I had. They seemed to care about their cast members' feelings.
