    Hey everyone. On Friday (October 4th) I auditioned for a character and look alike for Disneyworld. We learned a dance then there were cuts. We learned another dance.. There were more cuts. After that we had to sign some paper work. Next the video camera came out and we did an animation, then jumped right into the second dance we learned, then another animation, followed by the same dance. There were no more cuts. We finished auditions then they read off a list of people that they wanted to have stick around after. They took some more pictures of me. Is that for a face character? How long can I expect to wait before being contacted. I am general recruitment. Not CP. Any help and info is greatly appreciated. Thank you :)

    Hi I know that this is really old but my boyfriend and I just got jobs as arcade attendants in the disney all star resort part time of course, and we were wondering if we get into the parks for free and what do we use to get into the parks?

    As a full time new cast member, I have some questions that the handbook doesn't cover. If I need an additional day off sometime, can I request unpaid days off? Does that affect full time status?

    Also, I heard that you can bid for your schedule every six months. Does that apply to new cast members?

    Last, are 2 days guaranteed to be scheduled off together every week?

    THANKS!!!!

    If you worked for the Disney Store in the 90's is that an automatic in or are the computer systems not even connected anymore. I've had several jobs since then and I would not even have to put it on my resume because it is so long ago and not very relevant anymore (I was a kid, now I'm in my 40's!). It used to be an automatic thing, and I wasn't sure how often the files were "cleaned out" so to speak, wondering if that has changed at all.

    I like to work somewhere at Disney at a non-park role, there must be workers on the property that do not have to spend any time inside the parks. I thinking about those who work in warehouses shipping or receiving or company truck drivers, that bring products into the parks or take items out of the parks on a regular bases. Cannot image Disney allowing Coke to drive up to the back of MK and unload, but can see Disney having a warehouse on the property and deliver the coke bottles them self to the parks or to the resorts and keep fill those cooler and vending machines.

    Thanks for this information. My GF just got hired full time housekeeping at Old Key West Resort. She did her time at Disney U and today was the first day she was to be at the resort training. She has a bad tooth with an exposed nerve and woke up this morning in a massive amount of pain. Against my recommendation, she insisted on calling out. What are the potential consequences of this? I told her even if it's "allowed" it can cause some to call her work ethic and dedication in to question. She's a very hard worker and dedicated to Disney, but I fear that will not come through.

    Correct there are warehouses on property and truck drivers whom deliver products to locations all over. This is a strict role and not high turnover. I'd suggest you contact Casting and quest them directly, or apply for Disney Bus Driver and in the interview let them know of your other interests.

    Previously, Cast Members inserted their magstripe Maingate card into a legacy FP machine and got the return time. Now CMs have RFID-enabled Maingate cards and can visit a FP+ kiosk in-park to get same-day return times. Linking Maingate cards to MM+ for MagicBands and FP+ pre-booking is not currently available, but may be a future function.

    Hi :) I know at DLR you take your picture for your Cast ID at your onboarding appointment, do you receive your ID then as well or do you receive it at Traditions?

    Be careful, be anonymous if possible.

    I was threatened with termination on at least one occasion for my posts here, but this was about 11 years ago, before Disney understood the internet.

    Always thought it'd be fun to work at Disney. My wife did her college internship at disney. The pay is just awful or else we'd consider going there to try and work. Plus I have a good government job with great benefits. But with how often we go and we live in Texas, it always seems like it'd be awesome to work there if somehow you could get a good paying job.

    Hello there! Is there a Forum specifically for landlords seeking Disney employees as tenants? I have a rental and it's close to the studio. Please let me know.

    Yes.

    It's called Craigslist and a background check.

    Hi, I am 16 years old and a Junior in high school. Would I be able to work for disney in any way, even meaning if I went there for a summer and worked? Or am I too young?
