    I worked at Disney Store part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Super fun and positive atmosphere, you get to immerse yourself in all things Disney. Super cool events for kids and adults are run every week. Best by far are the discounts on literally everything Disney owns, from merch to broadway tickets to cruise line, as well as disney park passes!

    Cons

    Only employs part time unless you are manager or assistant manager, so don't expect alot of hours except during the holidays. Not alot of room for growth in the company. This is also a job where the leadership and team will make or break you. If you don't get along with your managers it will really affect the overall atmosphere of your work. Also if you are not a big fan of Disney the job has been described as too intense for retail by some of my previous coworkers

  2. "Working hard to keep up with the quality experience Disney represent."

    I worked at Disney Store part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Making little guests happy and the magic. Being able to work for the company that is as successful as they are and learn how to be the best in guest service.

    Cons

    Not getting enough hours and being in constant flux daily because of store earnings (as a part time cast member). And not enough room for growth

    I have been working at Disney Store part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Working part time is nice but it is wonderful to get year round entrances (pre-pandemic) to all of the Walt Disney World Resorts and Parks.

    Cons

    People trying to take advantage of Disney, yes we like to do nice things for people, but when they ask for free things it takes away from the fun. It should be spontaneous. Sometimes, management micro-manages things and it makes more work than necessary. Especially now with the pandemic and they want us to wear our costume/uniform to work, it makes more sense not to as to not bring more contaminates into the store.
