I had fun reading about the jobs we have...if you worked at WDW what would be your dream job? I would like to be CEO - hear there is an opening coming up! Next to that...I would LOVE to be the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella's castle. POUF. DH would like to be a bus driver...you get to sit down, and it is air conditioned. How about you? Sandie B

I'd love to zipwire down from the castle every night :bounce:, waving my wand :wave: and pixie dust to all those happy faces......and then land in time to watch Wishes...mmmmmmmmm!

OK. Dream over, doubt they'd want a 36 year old mum to do the job!!!:teeth: LOL

My DH has always wanted to drive the Friendship boats ... I have to admit for a 60 year old he would still look good in those white shorts :hyper: Me ... I would like to work behind the scenes. I don't think I would have the patience to deal with some of the guests.

My dh would captain one of the pontoon boats. I would be Cruella or Malificient. None of those sappy, nice to everyone princesses. Don't think I could take being nice to people all day, so a villainess would be perfect!!

My husband is currently a police officer....but he is dead serious when he says that he wants to retire to Orlando and drive a Disney bus.
As for me, I will take the retirement to orlando, but not sure what my 'dream job' there would be as of yet.

04-15-2004, 06:05 AM
DH wants to be a conductor on the steam railroad, and I would be the "extra person" who helps with the ropes on any of the boats.

We've been checking out Orlando neighborhoods, retirement is not too many years away, sometime in '07. I'm ready to leave Ohio, but Cape May has to fit in the retirement picture.

I actually had my dream job down there! I worked at CRT. It was such a great place to work!! Although if I ever move back (which might happen in 1.5 ys) I think I might like to waitress at CRT. They make very good money and also get some great benefits too!

My dream job is just to work there. I think I could be working with waste water at Disney and be happy as a clam (and scary as it sounds, it would be in my career field).

I would not want to be a character, though. I think that might make the characters lose their magic. I still tear up when I see Pooh and I would not want to lose that!

Fun question!:sunny:

Well, I would really like to be one of the guys with the little dust pan and broom that pick up garbage on Main Street at Magic Kingdom. That would be a great job, fantastic place, you're outside in great weather(only works the winter months) telling people where to go to have a great time, absolutely no stress and a complete change from what I'm doing now. Can't wait, I retire in 2 months.

DH has far loftier aims - he would love to be Captain of the Disney Magic!
actually come to think of it that does sound like a great job maybe we could "job share"... :teeth:

DH & I always joke that we'd like to be characters, but honestly, I think that's a really tough job. I'd like to have a nighttime job at WDW, after the parks close. Then I'd have all my days free to enjoy the WDW!

My dream job is to replace "Art the Greeter". However, since he's probably not going to retire until many, many years after me, I'll take my back-up. That's to work in the general store at OKW, and at the end of the day, just walk to where I live-one of the Villas at OKW where I'll meet up with DH, whose spent his day working as a greenskeeper at one of the WDW golf courses (actually, he's rather accomodating-he'll take any job at the WDW golf courses).

04-15-2004, 08:30 AM
Well, MK Resort Monorail Driver would do it for me. Just to spend a little time with all those families who are so excited to "sit up front". Plus, my DW says I've been going in circles for years ....

I'd love to do statistical analysis. See and get dirty with the REAL data. Discover what the optimal distribution of Fastpass tickets are, where and when can we place "events" to keep lines moving. See what the relationship between discounts and spending and profit is. How often buses should run to meet the goals of efficiency, cost effectiveness and customer satisfaction.

Course, that's what I do for a living, just not theme park related.

04-15-2004, 08:55 AM
Well my dream Disney job would be quality control. I would want to spend my days in the parks riding the rides, eating the food, and interacting with guests to make sure everything is up to snuff. Something tells me that isn't a real job, but they should create it just for me!

For years now, I've been the person all my family and friends come to when they need any advice and info. on WDW -- trip planning, where to eat, when to go, which WDW resort to stay in lol. I keep saying I'd love to be a professional WDW itinarary coordinator. You know, help guests with scheduling their days while at WDW, set up PS's, etc. So technically, I guess my dream job would be to work Concierge at BC or GF. Isn't that pretty much what they do lol? (have yet to stay concierge so only have an idea how it works - never seen it in action) Since I love to do that stuff anyway, I'd definetly love to be at WDW all the time and get paid to do it:teeth:

Too bad to try and get that job I'd have an hour and a half drive to work everyday:rolleyes: I guess I'll just have to settle for being a guest and not a CM. Not a hard job to be the guest though;)

Ohhh. I forgot the 'streetmosphere' people. I could do that. Or work in the Haunted Mansion. I'm multi-talented....I would do anything. Dh, although he has said he wants to pilot the pontoon boats, also would like to work in landscaping. He's always working in the yard at home. That would be a terrific place for him. Great ideas!!!

I would like to be a wedding planner and work with brides to be. Of course, that means dealing with mothers of the bride which can be a nightmare so maybe not. My second choice would be a DVC guide.

Hubby would probably want to be a barber on Main Street.

I would probably want to be a character. I'm extremely short. I think once I read I meet the requirement for ducks and mice. LOL
I think I'd be a great Minnie.

I also think I'd do a good job at Alice, but being I'm already 32 I don't think that would work.

My true dream job would be in theater and shows. Course, I would need to be able to sing, dance and act. LOL Might help! That is something I've always been fascinated by. I LOVE seeing Broadway shows when they tour to Atlanta.

My oldest takes ballet and tap, next year we'll add jazz into the mix. She also has a pretty voice. Maybe I'll get to live out my dreams through her, course she is only in Kindergarten! LOL

Back when I was in high school and college I wanted to go into animation. After two years of college I dropped out. Bad me! Doesn't much matter anyway, today I sure would be hard pressed to find a job at Disney doing this!

04-15-2004, 11:10 AM
Imagineer or DVC sales.

A planner/guide would be cool too, "Group, I know we've been to EPCOT every day this week, but we have to ride Mission space one more time to get the full experience." :D

I would love to be the "Official Food Taster" for all the WDW eateries-how cool would that be? :cool1: Of course I would then have to alternate that job with being a tour guide in the parks just to walk off the calories! :teeth:

DH would love to be the captain of The Grand One or Breathless :boat:

04-15-2004, 01:54 PM
OK, I've been inspired. I'd like to be Official Dessert Taster, the ODT in residence. A fulltime sugar high, er, job, at Disney would be just the ticket for me! :Pinkbounc

I have every intention of becoming a chef at one of the Disney

culinary school, then eight years until my youngest graduates

from high school, and, God willing, we will be making the move.

DH can sit home collecting his retirement check from the Coast

I'm with you brandip22. I would love to see the take from an average day. I do the deposits for a major department store and I just cant imagine how much $$$ comes through the parks each day!!! DH would like to work in Imagineering. He likes all that techincal mumbo-jumbo. The water screens in Fantasmic have really got his wheels turning on how he can do something like it at home on the pond behind our house. Our neighbors will hate us!!!

I saw on a tv special that some folks actually LIVE on Castaway Key. I thought about this but I guess it would get lonely after a bit...

I want to do DVC sales or work at either Goods-to-Go at Old Key West or the shop that sells the Hawaiian clothes at the Poly. This last one would let me look out at that great pool/lake all day!

PS: I only want to work part-time so I have lots of time for fun!

bus driver lady
04-15-2004, 06:47 PM
Well now...in my dreams I would rather be driving a bus at WDW than the school bus I've been driving for 12 years now. I have my doubts about the pay being comparable, though. But having the moms and dads onboard to make sure their kids behave would sure make the job a lot easier! Or did I see a debate about this recently...some parents let their kids run wild when they're on vacation, too!

DH would enjoy GM's Test Track as he is in the auto industry, or working at his favorite Pirates of the Carribean. And DS would make a fantastic Goofy!

Kind of like being a greeter at Walmart, only the surroundings would be better. I need a job with no stress, since I have been teaching for 30 years. I could also work at DVC telling people about DVC, or work after-hours changing lightbulbs;) DH would either be a bus driver or work at the golf courses.

In real life he is a charge nurse in the emergency room.

My Disney dream job would be to work in the casting department. I am already in Human Resources but "Casting" just sounds so much cooler!

I also would not mind being Eeyore or Pooh...

Oh how nice it is to dream! I would have to say my dream would either be to portray Belle in Beauty and Beast stage show (but that nasty little talent factor might get in the way:tongue: ) or maybe an animal handler at AK. DH is a farrier (horseshoer in layman's terms) and has become friendly with Gary Wade who does all the horses at FW for the park. I'd be happy if DH could even just be Gary's vacation fill in. (Guess that wouldn't be much of a vacation for DH though:rolleyes: ) Nevertheless, DH would be GREAAAAAAT at anything that requires talking to people (about anything...anywhere...anytime...:crazy: ) Unfortunately, my 4 year old DS has also acquired his father's gift for gab. Sure makes for fun times meeting people in the parks, though. I think that's one of my favorite things about going to WDW. I LOVE to meet people from all walks of life who have the same love I do for all things Disney. We are definately a culture of our own. I've started even doing itineraries for friends and relations when they go....did one for one friend and it just took off. Love doin it, now if I could only get paid!

I just thought I would add an interesting story to this interesting thread ;)

When we were at the YC last year, we were browsing at the gift shop before checking out. I was talking to a CM and joking with her saying that how could you not be happy if you worked at Disney :) She told me a pretty interesting story about a friend of hers that had been a lawyer for a few years. His friend was killed pretty unexpectedly and it made him reevaluate life I guess you could say. He quit his job as an attorney and went and got his dream job as a CM at the Yacht Club! She said he still raves that being a CM is the best job in the world. ;)

Brandip22...You and I are in the same boat...I am a branch manager as well but after 25 years, there is no way I want back in a financial institution, even in Disney.:teeth: My dream job would be working as a CM at any of the resort front desks.:hyper: I would love to help people get their dream vacation off to a perfect beggining.:tongue: Talking about Disney all day...absolutely...PRICELESS!!!:Pinkbounc :Pinkbounc

In reality, we'd never want to work or even live near WDW-we like it being far enough away to be a vacation destination-HOWEVER
in the what if game:
DH would absolutely positively want to be a firefighter there(we had to take pics of the new firehouse near DTD last trip:rolleyes: LOL)
I would like to be behind the scenes working in some sort of financial position..or I would work at the bank in the MK-is that still there??

I'm not sure if my first choice is an actual Disney job but I would love to work on doing bookings for their special events like the Christmas Parade, Night of Joy (ie booking and coordinating the talent) and being involved in the logistics of these of events.

Since I'm not sure that is an internal Disney job here are my other pics:

1) DVC sales
2) Guest Services at one of the resorts
3) Wedding Coordinator

All of these 3 are tied together because I just want be a part making someones Disney experience even more magical and perfect.

Since I have spent the last 10 years working on fund raisers, I would love to work on philanthropic events at Disney. I would open the gates of the Magic Kingdom to battered and abused women, underpriviledged children, Make A Wish Foundation, the list goes on.
Although, I would hardly consider this work. The rewards far outweigh any financial gain.
Recently, I read a post from a very generous person, who wanted to donate her unused points at the end of the year...not for any tax credit, but out of the goodness of her heart. Although I didn't respond to her post, my compliments to her....character is priceless.

I've actually given this a lot of thought,

I'd like to work in Quality Assurance as a "secret guest." Walk arround acting like a regular tourist in the parks and resorts but actually keeping an eye on the cast members making sure they're doing a good job. I'd love to make sure the good ones get recognised and the bad ones get the boot (or retrained).

OR

As long as I'd have the power to do something about it, I'd like to be the one that deals with guests that are having a bad day. "I'm so sorry you had to wait so long for a bus. Would unlimited fast passes for the day help?" "It's too bad your stroller was stolen, would a free meal at Crystal Palace make up for it?" That kind of thing.

I'd love to be one of the people that makes changes to the MK at night .... leaving just as the visitors arrive to see all the magic that I've worked so carefully to create. Especially around the holidays! (Probably sounds like I'd be an ideal CM ... thinking of the visitor first and getting joy from their excitement!

Pixie dust spreader on the Tilt-O-Whirl but I understand that job is taken, right Eddie? I guess I'll just have to settle for Mayor of Magic Kingdom! Great thread!!

travelbug
04-20-2004, 04:48 PM
What a fun thread! Here are my top few:

1. Work the cruise desk at Beach Club
2. Keys to the Kingdom tour leader
3. Host the Millionaire Show at MGM
4. DVC sales
5. Drive the boat between Epcot and MGM

Maybe I'll get to make my fantasy a reality someday. :D

I would be happy to be a CM in one of the gift shops in any of the Disney resorts. I think it would be great fun to meet and talk to people from all over the country and the world! I wouldn't want to work in any of the park gift shops....especially any of the ones on Main Street after the fireworks...YIKES!!:eek: Wayyyy too many people at once!

The other job I'd love is to drive the boats from POR to DTD and back again..."Welcome aboard, watch your step!!"

Sigh.....wishful thinking!

I always tell my friends I want a job driving the Jungle Cruise boat:

1. It's in the Magic Kingdom.
2. The boat steers itself.
3. I'd get to crack bad jokes all day long and get paid for it.
4. It's in the Magic Kingdom!

Nothing makes me happier than digging in the dirt!
So how much better would it be to dig in the dirt at MK or Epcot?
I love the plants and design work that is done and would love to be there at night planting and digging away!! :cool: :cool: :wave: :wave:

DVC guide - no doubt about it. Second choice would be CM helping people get those dates and rooms they want -or front desk at OKW so I can say Welcome Home and hopefully get everyone's stay off to a good start.

Director of Public Safety. In my far-fetched dream I would knit the Fire-Fighting, Security, Medical, Emergency Preparedness and Emergency/Contigency Response departments into a tightly integrated unit ready to meet the anticipated and unplanned needs of our guests and CMs.

That or nightly sanitation worker!

I would be a natural for dvc sales, I have already sold a few with my enthusiasm for the program.

I think it would be dreamy to sell balloons on main street, but im sure that would get boaring quick.

I need to work with people, I smile alot anyway (probably because my next disney vacation is always around the corner)
I like to solve problems and help people so maybe guest services somewhere, or some type of hotel management position would be good for me.

I guess lots of people want my job. When I retire I want to drive the boat from OKW to DD also. I would consider driving the tramps at the parking lots also. I would not let all those late comers hop on.

08-30-2004, 07:58 AM
I think
1) Marketing Department
2) Mayor (or Mayoress in my case) of Main Street
3) Boat Pilot in Epcot

You all know there are seasonal jobs available:rolleyes:

I would love to work as a groundskeeper. They could assign me to any area of the park and I would be satisfied. I think WDW's landscaping is next to genius. Magnolias, slash pines, ect. I could be outside all day!

I would love to write software for DISNEY, and then retire to driving the monorail between MK and Epcot.

I have always loved the monorail, and the trip between parks gives some great views and enough time to really enjoy the ride.

I work in Systems Assurance, working on everything from computer systems to satellites. I have had one childhood dream job, working for NASA. Now, to fulfill by adult dream job, working for the mouse.

I would love to do test and deploy for the new systems Disney deploys across the property. From Fast Pass to Pal Mickey to the new ticketing system.

And, in my retirement years, piloting a Friendship Launch and piloting a monorail.

Now, how much are houses in Celebration?

Wow, I've really enjoyed (and sometimes laughed out-loud at) all the responses! I should really take some time to think about this but the first things come to mind are...

1. Anything involving animals at AK
2. Rotating through the various gift shops in the World Showcase...different view of Illuminations every night!
3. DVC guide

DH
1. DVC guide
2. DVC van driver
3. One of the people at CBR that rent out the water mice and drive them around the lake patroling

Maybe when the kids are older and out on their own.
