Disney Parks staff Whisper what it’s really like working there
I love Disney (but not this much) and from time to time I’ve thought, Wouldn’t it be fun to retire to Orlando and work at Walt Disney World? (I know it wouldn’t be, but go with me here.)
‘I work at Disney World and being around children and their parents all day every day has taught me how not to raise my children.’
‘When I worked at Disney I wanted so much to freak out whenever I met a celebrity. Totally sucks when I can’t break out of character.’
Believe. I would feel the same way.
‘I once walked in on Belle and Gaston having sex. They paused and then Belle says: “Don’t tell the Beast.”‘
Calling bull on this, but a super story if true. This will this employee’s go-to story (true or not) whenever he or she hears “Disney” forever more.
‘Every day before my shift I drink liquor to help make me more cheerful for the children.’
Possible and admirable — functional alcoholism for the benefit of mankind.
‘I work at Disney and ‘have a magical day’ is mouse for “go f*** yourself”.’
Not only do I completely believe this, I intend to adopt it in everyday life.
Not everything is crappy working at the Happiest Place on Earth, but you can read those charming tidbits here.
