    I worked at Disneyland Resort full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Disneyland is probably the best job any one could ever want. The atmosphere is fantastic, the people are great and the benefits are above any other job you have ever had.

    Cons

    You'll never get rich working there...

    I have been working at Disneyland Resort full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, including: medical; vision; dental; 401k with company matching; federal credit union; corporate discounts on entertainment, local businesses, goods, and wireless service; free admission to any company-owned theme park; two weeks worth of both paid vacation and sick pay per year the first five years, increases to three weeks after that; guaranteed annual raises for both hourly and salaried Cast Members; union representation for all hourly Cast Members; one of the most lenient attendance policies of any company around today; upward mobility, as the company likes to promote from within

    Cons

    Cast Members are expected to be fully available to work any shift, any day, particularly during the summer and the holidays; very difficult to get weekends and holidays off, unless you have high seniority with the company; shift trades are a process that involve gaining approval from a department outside your own management team

    I have been working at Disneyland Resort for more than a year

    Pros

    free tickets, cast discounts and offers. Special cast previews and events

    Cons

    unfortunately there is kittle to no wiggle room when it comes to schedules. For those who are in school or have a second job it is very difficult to work at this place.

    I worked at Disneyland Resort for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Free Admission Discounts Very limited food and merchandise discounts

    Cons

    Management doesn't care They don't have proper costume sizes They promote those who don't have a thought for themselves There is far too much backstabbing and gossip They micromanage everything so cast is afraid to make a decision They only want yes men and not free thinkers. No parking for cast

    I have been working at Disneyland Resort full-time

    Pros

    The Disneyland Resort is a great place for a simple job. Whether in Attractions or Custodial, it gives you great satisfaction working for such a well-known destination and company. You get to make happiness, which not very many companies can say.

    Cons

    Overall it is just a place for a job, not a career. Unless you are a hospitality management major, moving up in this division isn't worth the stress. If your management team doesn't believe in you, even if you have the credentials to do it, you won't move up very far at Disneyland.

    I have been working at Disneyland Resort part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The Disneyland Resort is a great place to work for college students. As long as you give advance notice, students should have no problem balancing their studies, work schedule, and social life. It's also great for their benefits. They allow park admissions for you and your family. (Family entry is limited).

    Cons

    You will miss some important family days especially holidays and perhaps some weekend events. However, these are avoidable and can be minimized with smart planning. Park Operations is understaffed in some areas.
