I encourage everyone - no matter how old are you - to work at Disney for a period of time, say 6 months. It is once upon a lifetime experience.

Management is truly systematic in operation. Co-workers are generally nice.

The hardest part about – more... the job is honestly, just wishing there was more opportunity that came faster in order to be more involved and grow with the role.

Horrible experience
Magic Kingdom Outdoor Foods (Former Employee), Lake Buena Vista, FLDecember 2, 2014
Pay is awful, but you get free admission....when you have time off. No promotions. Too many things to get fired for. They basically own you while you work for them.
