    Pros

    Current Employee - Entertainment in Anaheim, CA
    Recommends

    I have been working at Disneyland Resort full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The cast members are an incredible group and you will find some wonderful friendships. Management is caring and can take care of you. You have the chance to make magic for the guests and even create some wonderful memories. There are some fantastic benefits, like getting free sign-ins for family members or gaining a substantial amount of paid time off to take trips.

    Cons

    It is still a guest service job and you will have to deal with the goods and bads of humans. With every amazing person you meet, there is also the chance to catch someone on their worst day. Pay is not the best. Not very livable. It is still a job. The company is going to be working hard and sometimes that means having to work on holidays or weekends.
