This actually was my job when I was in the college program in the early 90's. I rotated between the other ice cream and popcorn carts, but probably spent most of my time at the Main Street popcorn cart closest to the castle.

It was a nice spot. Covered when it rained, got to see the parade every night (actually that got old after a while). Fed the ducks popcorn seed once in a while. And the stand only sold popcorn at that time, so the transactions were simple.

My other favorite job was being a 'breaker' in our group. I went around to the popcorn and icecream carts and gave people their breaks or lunches. Nice costume... just dockers and a red shirt, and got to walk around the Magic Kingdom.

Hubby wants to be a boat driver, and I could do anything from trip planning, concierge, or DVC sales all the way to entertainment... I would love to be one of the singers in the American pavilion, especially at Christmas!

I tear up whenever I hear "Welcome Home." Some people say I have "issues."

Canoe Guide

Without a doubt --- I'd like to be the canoe guide leader. I love that attraction. People have fun and exercise and you get to see so much of the park.

While I was in college I worked at Disney. Full time during summer and Christmas, then Fridays and Saturdays during the semesters. I loved it. Worked at great movie ride at Studios. Started out as a tour guide then moved up to bandit. I remember they told us unequivocally "Girls will NEVER be gangsters." It kills me to see girls as gangsters now. So bitter. Except honestly, I haven't seen any good girl gangsters so who knows. It was a great job since for most shifts we were in air conditioning and it was never boring. I can tell you all kinds of secrets and trivia and naughty things about the ride I have stored in the "useless information department" of my brain. Lots of happy times. It's so funny to take my kids there now! They like me to tell them about how spooky it was to take a dead show through the Alien section all alone -- so creepy!

I always thought I would want to be a Monorail Pilot but after more trips to the world, definitely working on the boats. 6,744 days till retirement and hopefully training as a watercraft operator sailing the seven seas lagoon!
