I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts as an intern for less than a year

Pros

You are encouraged to create special magical moments everyday
The atmosphere is wonderful and exciting
You can choose to look past the bureaucracy and have a wonderful experience or not
Wonderful perks like getting into all parks for free and being able to bring guests

Cons

Can be hard work- lots of overtime
Do not treat interns well, see them all as disposable and not real people
Hard to advance and get promoted, it takes years
The pay is nothing special, possibly underpaid for how much work you do

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Never lose sight of making magic, give employees their freedom back to create magical moments

    I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Your co-workers will generally be nice, most guests are nice (although the bad ones have ruined many good days and memories for me!), your managers are usually pretty understanding and the job is easy.

    Cons

    -some co-workers act like they're still in high school, with a superiority complex
    -guests can be really rude and downright nasty

    Pros

    Everything! It's a magical place! Great pay, great discounts, great opportunities to make kids and people of all ages have a magical time!

    The only downside is the long hours. There are little vacation days, but when working at Disney World it's always fun ayways!
