    I worked at Disneyland Resort part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved my time working at Disneyland. There is always fun to be had while getting work done, and management was good about keeping everyone on track without being overbearing. It was easy to switch shifts with people if need be, and if you wanted to work extra there were often ways to do so. Seniority plays a huge part in what shifts you get and when your time off requests are granted, which I think is fair. Guests were generally wonderful, but on the rare occasion someone would give you trouble you couldn't deescalate, leads would swoop in to save the day. You also get a ton of park-related perks, like being able to sign yourself in almost whenever you want and being able to take three guests with you around 16 times per year, plus discounts on food and merchandise or hotel stays. There are always fun cross-training opportunities depending on your department; I was an ornament personalization artist during the holiday season. This is a super easy place to hire into and a great entry-level job, but if you have work experience, you get more options.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the pay was not livable, especially in such an expensive area, and the hours fluctuated to the extreme: as a part time worker, I worked 40+ hours per week during peak season, and then drop to 12-16 hours per week during slow seasons. If you don't like children, tourists, crowds, or loudness, this is probably not the spot for you (although I enjoyed it). When I was there, it was also extremely hard to get listed as a full-time employee (and thus extremely hard to get health benefits).
