Ok, you all piqued my curiosity enough that I went and browsed through the current job openings on the wdw.disneycareers.com web site. For a minute, I thought I had a new pick. They're currently advertising for a Disney Cruise Line Travelling Food Standards Manager.

I thought it was someone who travels on the Disney Cruise ships and samples the food. Hey, I've got that covered!

But then I read the position description and realized the job actually involves a lot of hard work and paperwork. Never mind. I already have a job like that.
Help! I'm addicted to profile badges! Check out my SSR FAQ here.

Don't have any degrees, I'm an account clerk. But man o man would I LOVE to be in animal conservation or caregiver in AKP. That's my first choice, second would be working in archives. Alas I'll have to settle for repeated DVC vacations for the rest of my life

Being a skipper or mate on one of the friendship boats would be pretty cool in my book...

I'd take about any job.

I dont have the legs for a princess but if need be I'll shave my manly legs.

Honestly I'd love to do something in the "green" side of it all. Like recycling programs, switching over to less paper and all that good stuff.

DH always says he is going to captain the boats that run the CR - VWL - FT route. He says I can work in the finance department since that is what I do now. I really would not mind working in one of the trading posts at Ft Wilderness or something with the guests - did travel agency job for years also worked at a hotel convention center for a few years and I do like working with people.

While I do have a real job sitting behind a desk, I'm actually the drummer for a county concert band and have been playing drums since third grade. I also read music which is not the norm for most drummers and so I would love to play at the Grand Floridian or in the Beatles band at Epcot or maybe even the pit orchestra for one of he Disney cruise ships. I would also like to live in a 2 bedroom villa at the Wilderness Lodge.

Boat captain. Preferably the MK Poly GF route. The WL MK route would be cool to go over the water bridge. I'm ready to move there now.

I don't think I'd care as long as I get to work on Main Street. DH and I have always talked about doing this in our retirement.

Omg...i love this thread. Have any of you actually looked for your dream job at Disney?i scope out the job postings all of the time. I work in medicine so i know they won't have a job for me, at least in my current position. i have mentioned looking at the hospital in Celebration and my husband rolls his eyes. If i couldn't practice medicine there I would probably want to work at BBB.

Every time I go I step out into the streets and dance in the parade. I want to be a dancer in the parade and look at all the excited happy faces staring back at me. I always feel regret that I never did anything fun like that right after high school. I loved being in plays so acting is my gig.

DW and I plan to retire down there and get jobs working for Disney. I'd like to work at the turnstiles so I could greet people everyday as they enter
We leave in 24 days!
