What part time WDW job would you love to have?

So lets pretend you have retired from your day job, sold your house up north in the freezing cold winters, and moved to Orlando. You have now been told you can have any part time job at WDW. What job would you pick?

I would, without a doubt, want to be a Friendship boat captain cruising the canals of the Epcot resorts. I love the water and I think this would be the perfect job.

I'd say something in transportation! Drive the monorail or a bus! Heck, even drive the Magical Express bus!

Hmm, what a great question.

There are so many jobs in Disney I would love. I would drive the Magical Express Bus (only to Disney though not home, too sad lol). I would also like to work in Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor or in one of the Kids Programs.
Being a character would be fun as well (not the ones with the full suits though, too hot).

I had to really think about this. I wouldn't want an outside job...just too hot, so I decided I'd love to work the front desk at The Poly...I just love that lobby...or having seen it, I'd love to be a receptionist in the building where they make all the costumes. I can't sew at all, so I'd have to be in a non-sewing position. I could be the person who warns everyone that a tour is coming through.

Great thread. Especially since I have retired and am planning a move to the Orlando area shortly. I've given this exact question some thought during some idle musings and came up with some dream jobs - only some of which I'm actually qualified to do.
  • Boat driver
  • Haunted Mansion host
  • Tour guide
  • Golf operations
  • Living Seas diver
  • greeter in one of the hotels
  • Park custodial (you would get a lot of opportunities to talk to guests)
  • Ride maintenance
  • Monorail
  • Train conductor

Some jobs I'd hate to have:
  • 'White wing' (cleans up after the horses in the parades)
  • fast food
  • mousekeeping
  • valet/bell services

I could only top that by being the Mayor of Main Street USA.

Looks like the Mayor has a "sister wife".

The part time job I would love to have would be a greeter on Main Street or anything in Frontierland. I love their costumes, so that would be good for me. For the unique job I would love would be at HM.
