I worked at Disney Parks full-time (More than 10 years)
I worked for the Disney Company for 13 years. I started at The Disney Story, then transferred to the Resorts and Parks division after 3 1/2 years. While at the Parks and Resorts, I spent 9 years in Guest Relations in the parks. I loved being able to help guests plan their days, resolving any issues that occurred and making magic for our guests. I also spent one year in Concierge, which is basically the same job as Guest Relations, except in at the hotels.
The role of Guest Relations or concierge requires a person to stand a large portion of the day. I have Plantar Fasciatis and Achilles tendonitis, which prevents me from being able to to to do the required amount of standing and/or walking for that role. I could not be accommodated in that capacity and was not interested in working in a cubicle in an office with no windows. Since it is a right to work state, they have the right to determine who they want in those positions and what accommodations they are willing to provide.
Advice to Management
There are many very willing and able people who would be a great asset in public facing jobs who cannot, for a variety of reasons, stand for long periods of time. It is a shame to loose them due to the clause stating that if your accommodations cannot be met, you can no longer perform that role

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Disney Parks (Clermont, FL (US)) in March 2016.
Applied online on a Tuesday, received an email to do the web base interview the following day(Wednesday) . Did the web base interview Wednesday, I received an email to schedule a in person interview Wednesday night. Schedule my interview for the following Tuesday.
They worked with my schedule, very friendly and more like a conversation rather than questions.
