I recently left Disney after 3 years in reservations. I've completed the College of Disney Knowledge, and I still have many contacts in the DRC organization. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am a native Floridian who relocated to Texas last year. I have been visiting the Disney World Resort for over 20 years. I would love to become a part time agent. Any ideas?

I haven't read this whole thread, but does anyone know how to work for Disney officially? I don't want to work for a travel company. I want to work for Disney itself. I have an associates degree in hospitality, travel and tourism and I want to be one of those people who answer the phones when you call to book your vacation. Anyone know if these people work from home or if they work in a call center?

I heard there are online courses offered by Disney and then you take a test and if you pass, you could be considered for a Disney job. Not sure where to start tho.

They list job openings online. You might want to check it out. I haven't heard of any online courses. Maybe as part of the applicant process.? It used to be more like just applying for a job anywhere. You apply and then they interview you and see if you are Disney material. I assume it's still the same. Google Disney Jobs.

If anyone has applied recently chime in please

Dh and I sometimes talk of working part-time/seasonally at WDW when we retire, so I keep Disney Career in my favorite's so I can glance at it occasionally. lol They happen to have an opening for Call Center Representative listed. Good luck!

If I didn't mess it up, here's a link to the official Disney Careers website:
