I have been working at Disney Parks & Resorts part-time

Pros

Great place to work if you are in Orange County. AGVA, or the American Guild of Variety Artists is the Union that most singers and dancers at Disneyland are members of. This allows for the negotiation of salaries, working conditions, health benefits, etc.

If you are seeking to remain local in Southern California, performing for Disney under an AGVA contract is one of the best hourly rates you will find in the theme park world, and benefits come with it. You can perform in several shows, pretty much creating your own diversified Full Time performing gig if you so choose.

Cons

Not economically wise to stay here too long if you are outside of OC, unless you have someone else paying for your gas. But still a great short-term fit!

    I have been working at Disney Parks & Resorts full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I make Magic everyday! It's a dream job. Great benefits, beautiful office, great leaders! They go out of their way to help you grow. I love speaking with my guests and drawing a mental picture of the amazing memories they are going to create on this vacation.
    I love to go to the parks on my days off and see the guests smiling faces. It makes my job so much more meaningful.
    I have so much pride in the company I work for. It's the greatest place in the world to work!

    Cons

    I can't really think of any other than my advice to management comment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to be able to use the restroom when I need to, not when it is scheduled.
