If i couldn't practice medicine there I would probably want to work at BBB.
Where do you go to search for Disney jobs?

I notice from the previous posts a lot of people are thinking in the future as a retirement job at Disney. Actually, they do employ many retired people in seasonal positions. DH and I have thought about it, but, will probably only spend the worst of the winter in central FL (maybe Jan and Feb) so don't know if only 8 weeks or so will qualify as seasonal. However, our youngest son spent five months working in the College Program from Jan 2011 to May 2011. He worked on the Backlot Tour at HS....sometimes loading/unloading and sometimes driving the tram....they switch off every hour or so during an 8 hour shift. Actually, IMO, this was one of the best CP jobs since he never worked past dusk (8 p.m.) Backlot Tour is one of the few rides which is operational only during daylight hours. Several of his roommates had all kinds of crazy shifts during EMH and late nights, but, his was pretty stable.....start time anywhere from 7:30 to 11 a.m. and shift end anywhere from 3 to 8 p.m....he usually worked 32 to 35 hours a week....which left him plenty of time to enjoy the five months he worked also.....not to mention....when he graduated college it was a nice addition to his resume.....

I always said when I grow up I want to work at Disney World. Before I was busy raising kids, now I will be done with nursing school in 2015 at 51. Disney wants 5 years experience working in a ER. Doing that now. I will be at set to be a nurse at the parks! . My DH always said he would drive a bus but after our last trip, he has decided he wants to captain a boat!

That's my plan, too!! Although retirement is a little closer for me.... 10-15 years. I would love to give tours at MK. I had also thought about working at city hall in guest relations. I want to help people get the most magic out of their Disney experience. °O°

My plan is to retire in the Mountains of Tennessee mostly to be closer to Disney! I want to be a seasonal or part time Nurse at WDW ideally working in the first aid station.

Merchandising at one of the resort marketplaces!!! I think they call it mouserdising? Miss Mary always made our stay at SSR and that is what she did! Would live to do the same for others.

I would like to work in Disney Transportation driving park and resort buses. DW wants to work in landscaping or park maintenance. Although, specifically she wants the night shift so she can see what goes on in the Magic Kingdom after hours --- especially when the Christmas decorations come out!

My retirement plan is to sell Mickey ice cream bars from a little cart. It would be the best way to spend my retirement years by making people happy! And who is not happy when they get ice cream?
