    They're pretty lenient about time off, they all work together like a family, your coworkers are always amazing, and fun cast parties!

    Cons

    Let it go on repeat, not a lot of hours, a lot of on-call shifts.

    I worked at Disney Store

    Pros

    If you are a huge Disney fan and wanting to work for the mouse, but not wanting to relocate then this is a good medium. All the cast members become your close friends and family. Another plus is that every 6 months you get tickets to the parks that you can use towards your vacation at Disneyland/Disney World. They have flexible hours for those who need it.

    Cons

    One of the cons that I never liked was the constant on-calls. This always kept you from making a full day schedule. The hours when you did have hours where either long or not even worth going to work. And the amount of work that you had to do for the pay, for those who want this as their main job, didn't seem enough for bills.

    Pros

    I enjoy working at Disney Store. It is a fun and fast paced environment. In May I will be working there for 3 years and have already been promoted to seasonal lead twice. Just recently they distributed main entrance passes to all employees whether you are a part-time or full-time employee.

    Cons

    It is hard to work during the holidays and always on the weekends.

    I worked at Disney Store part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you love Disney then apply. Even working Seasonal it's alot of fun and getting it teachs you alot about guest service and making sure that the guest is happy when they walk out of our store.

    Cons

    Being a Seasonal Worker means that you are a fall back cast member. So you might work once or twice a week or sometimes never. Not enough money to make a living.
