So, you're thinking about getting a Walt Disney World job. It's a great
place to work, I know (having worked there myself). It can be a wee bit
stressful at times, when the lines grow long. But mostly a Walt Disney
World job whole lot of fun!
Maybe you're thinking about getting a summer job at Walt Disney World?
Hey, it's a great idea, even if you're in another part of the country. You
get to visit Orlando and the beaches on your days off work. The way that
is the absolute most fun is to get two or three other friends who'd also like a
Walt Disney World job, then share an apartment for the summer. How cool is
Maybe you'd like to check about an internship as your Walt Disney World job
-- there are some available. Imagine, college credit for a job at Disney!
Before You Apply for a Walt Disney World Job...
Before you pack your bags or send off your resume, there are a few things you
Does Walt Disney World have a dress code? Yes, they do.
To be employed in any position that requires regular contact with guests (as
Disney visitors are called), you must be well-groomed. This is a case
where piercing (outside of a traditional ear piercing for women), tattoos,
funky haircolors and the like will not be accepted. If you are looking
for a position that does not involve regular contact with guests, you must
dress appropriately for your Walt Disney World job. Also, makeup and
jewelry are limited if you have contact with guests.
Is it true that there are employee tunnels underground? Yes
indeed. If you think about it, you never see a person in a
Tomorrowland outfit roaming around on Main Street, do you? That's
because employees get to their jobs via the underground tunnel system.
The tunnel system is large, and you will need to take that into
consideration when you go to work.
I'm coming in from another area -- is there housing available?
Yes. Walt Disney World offers housing for their college program.
If you're a student at a college and want to work at Disney for the summer,
you can apply to live at the subsidized housing. Rates vary depending
on the type of apartment, but the costs range from $69 per week to $87
per week. That includes all utilities, high speed internet,
furnishings, etc. It's first reserved, first served, and all housing
costs are deducted from your weekly paycheck.
How can I find out what jobs are available? That's easy.
Just go to
Careers and search their database. Alternately, you can also check here for jobs.
How do I submit my resume? That's easy too! When you
Disney Careers looking for job openings, when you see something you
like, click on it. At the bottom of the page there is a place to
submit your resume.
What about an internship? Take a look at the
Disney College Program for information about how you can get college
credit while working at Walt Disney World.
I hope I've given you some good information about getting a Walt Disney World
job. Like I said before, it's a great place to work. Who can't smile
when you're at the Happiest Place on Earth?
