    Pros

    Get to go into all the parks for free. Get a discount on items such as food and merchandise. You get to be around "magic" all of the time, it is such a happy place. Also, a very fun place for a college student, who does not have that many responsibilities

    Cons

    Where I worked, which was in California Adventures. The hours are shorter than the Disneyland side, so you would have to split the morning and night shift. So you would only work about 5-6 hours. There are not that many benefits such as insurance.

    Advice to Management

    They were amazing and really made sure to acknowledge your hard work. Which is really uplifting especially when they realize that you are part of the experience of making the guest's visit amazing.
