    With openings for more than 1,200 new Cast Members, Walt Disney World Resort is hosting its annual Summer Job Fair online May 11 – 31. Candidates are invited to apply for a variety of jobs – including positions at all four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, two water parks, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, Downtown Disney Area and over 20 Resort Hotels – at www.WaltDisneyWorld.jobs.

    With the recent completion of New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park – which nearly doubled the size of the most popular land in the most popular theme park in the world – the return of Festival of the Lion King at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and the busy summer travel season approaching, a variety of Walt Disney World roles are available. Open positions include Disney Reservation Center representatives, lifeguards, housekeepers, bus drivers and Cast Members to fill attractions, merchandise, and quick service food and beverage positions in theme parks. This recruitment effort is part of continued employment growth at Walt Disney World Resort.

    “We rely on our Cast Members to help create the magic that enchants our guests. They’re our story tellers and memory makers,†says Robin Zais, director of Walt Disney World Casting. “Walt Disney World Resort enjoys some of the longest-tenured Cast Members in the industry, due in part to our leading employment package.â€

    All Walt Disney World Resort Cast Members receive complimentary theme park admission and discounts at select merchandise, dining and recreation locations. The company also offers unique cost-saving programs for eligible Cast Members, such as childcare at two onsite centers, an onsite health clinic and pharmacy, discounts on everyday needs ranging from groceries to medicine, and a pre-tax public transportation option.

    For more information, including full role descriptions and other available opportunities, applicants can visit WaltDisneyWorld.jobs

    Trying to figure out if we can afford to retire and live off of our retirement pay and whatever Disney pays us. Of course I think we would need full time positions at Disney.

    I hear you John. It would be nice though. Always had it in my mind to be one of the boat drivers down between POR and DTD.
