    Would you like to work at Disneyworld and if so, what as?

    I wonder what it would be like to be one of those people who've worked there at one location FOREVER and recognise guests

    I wonder if all the magic would go or would I still like helping guests and making their day?

    Every time I'm asked this question, my immediate response is always a resounding 'yes, I'd love to work at WDW!'.

    Thinking about it though, I do worry that the magic would wane - I'm careful not to overvisit the parks now and I'm only there twice a year. Then there's the question that really confounds me - if I was at WDW all the time, where would I go on holiday?

    I don't think I would want to work there. Right now it's my happy place,if it was my job I imagine that would change.

    If I didn't know you better, I'd say you were trying to get rid of me!

    :lol: NO!!! I'd never do that.

    I was just saying that if you were at WDW all the time you could holiday in Hawaii, it's lovely and you would love it :sigh:

    I don't think I would like to work at Disney but would love to have a job working as a food critic and visit every Disney resturant

    yeah I must admit I would love to try a few months as executive in charge of customer service in the parks ...

    See I think I probably could work there in a nice non-stressy job and still appreciate the magic. I think day to day I may get a bit fedup but I hope there'd still be the opportunities to make someone's holiday

    Definitely would love to work with the gorillas. :yes:

    Pierced ears are ok, as long as there are not too many piercings, and colored hair is too, as long as it's not purple or some color that would look unusual. :D

    Yes but not in a customer-facing role. I'd love to be a gardener or something like that.

    No you're not going mad Wendy, it's all of my fringe and then down one side (a bit like sideburns) and I'm not going to change it, even for Disney.:wink:

    Exactly, as I have posted in the past...sort of my dream job. I always loved talking to them when on the boats. They were a tight bunch. Seems the guys played golf together when not at work. Sounds good to me. DW Sally mentioned that she would love to work the desk at one of the resorts.

    I think reality would perhaps take the shine off the jobs though. Sally was wondering how much they make. She looked up that even the princesses make no more than $15/hour. Guess the pay would just be icing if we were retired.
