I truly enjoyed this place. Your job could be MUCH worse.

Animated Entertainer (Former Employee)
Orlando, FL

ProsI got paid to entertain guests via hugs, high fives, meet and greets, autographs, dancing, etc. the highlight of my day was getting to meet a Make A Wish Foundation kid, or a Give Kids the World kid and seeing their faces light up or even their parents faces, because if only for a minute, nothing else in the world mattered. Nobody was sick or in pain. They were just happy to meet you.

ConsThe days are long and exhuasting. You sweat a heck of a lot until your body gets used to the heat. And the constant changing in and out of a costume becomes very monotonous.

Advice to Senior ManagementI dont have too much negative to say about this place. The supervisors were all nice and fair, though sometimes getting a hold of a manager wasnt the easiest thing to do. Higher wages would be nice, and more ergonomically designed costumes would DEFINITELY be a plus. The costume designers never have to wear their designs out in the heat for a day or more, so they dont know the negatives to them.
