Fun for work experience and company insight, draining otherwise.

I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Free park access. You also get to meet many people around the country and world on a daily basis. Depending on where you work, you get to experience fireworks, parades, and the occasional celebrity.

Cons

Lower management tends to have a very obnoxious ego and can be quite nasty to their cast. Very strict on the disney look, and some costumes are very bizarre and kind of humiliating. If you are full time or on the college program you will work 50 plus hours around the holidays.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that the front line cast members are who the guests interact with day to day. the more happy you keep them, the more happy your guests will be!

    Loved it when the characters came to visit

    Not approved time off sometimes.
    7 day support and you must work a Sat or Sun every week and be willing to possibly work holidays.

    I worked at Disney Parks & Resorts as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Amazing people, incredible résumé booster, great housing set up, paid! (Minimum wage-but money is money!)

    Cons

    You'll feel a bit "sucked in" by any of the all-encompassing jobs offered by the college program. I found it difficult to focus on myself or my classes. However, I don't regret a second of it. It simply pushed my graduation date back some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My managers were amazing. They were easy to talk to and related to me as well as supported me.
