    The best reason to work at Disney Studios is the opportunity to work with people everyday whose passion for what they do is a shared experience. The Disney cast members are the people who carry the torch and ensure that Disney's innovation and excellence in entertainment lives on. This excellence can be the experience of an adrenaline rush from a roller coaster ride to the action on the big screen. Everyday, someone, somewhere is being touched by a Disney brand.

    A commitment and dedication to hard work is a given, and the rewards are immeasurable.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledgments of accomplishments are always greatly appreciated by all.
