Cast Member, Disney College Program Internship (Volt alkalmazott) – Orlando, FL – 2018, május 19.
I worked Quick Service Food and Beverage in the Magic Kingdom. I loved that we were very well staffed and the work place was extremely organized. I was given free autonomy to create magical moments and help with guest recovery. Despite it being insanely busy, we were always able to manage the crowds and do things efficiently. My personal favorite position was making the drinks, as the time flew by. I was rarely bored or I greatly appreciated the moment of boredom when it came around. Most of my co-workers were friendly, hard workers with a love for Disney as well. Some leaders were a bit rude and unhelpful at points, but the coordinators were top of the line. (Disclaimer: this was at my Food and Beverage location, I've heard better expereinces at others) Dan Cockerell (Magic Kingdom Vice President) was a great guy who truly gave equal care to both his employees and his guests.
Free entry into the parks and places with discounted Disney stuff were truly magical. Food discounts were reserved for mostly sit down restaurants which is frustrating when you just want a quick-service meal or a Mickey pretzel.
40% discount on merchandise during the holidays and 20% during the rest of the year
Free Park entry, good work environment, well organized, merchandise discounts
Stressful at points, rude guest interactions
