Getting A Job With Disney

If you are ever thinking about pursuing a job with Disney it is very easy, but may take a little while.  When you are there are there all you have to do is go to the employment building which is right across from Downtown Disney.  Once there just fill out the necessary applications, and if there is an available person you can get a interview.

I am sure that once you apply you have to go through drug testing, and pre-employment screening, but that won’t be during the first visit as far as I know.  When I applied for employment with Disney I got to speak to someone, and they were going to see if there was a job that fit my desires.  A week later I got a call with the offered work, and the rate of pay that I could receive if hired.

Being we make decisions as a family I discussed the opportunity with my wife.  She told me that I could take the job, but I would have to go to work in Orlando for a month, or so before she would make the jump of moving down to Florida.  I understand her reasons to this.  I ended up not taking the job because I enjoy working for myself, and I do exactly what I like doing.  I am sure that I could have gotten a good position with Disney, but at that time the changes would have been major for us.

Who knows… Maybe when I am older I will rethink the whole idea again.  I would rather greet people at Disney World instead of greeting people at WalMart.

How Can Disney Do It?

When I bought our Disney Vacation Club (DVC) membership our family was happy that we wouldn’t have to spend what we used to in order to vacation.  In the past few years we were never sorry about purchasing our timeshare.  This year my wife mentioned that maybe we should sell it off, but I refuse to.  With the continuing economic worries I have noticed more, and more people losing their homes, and getting rid of their posessions in order to keep afloat.

How can Disney keep going with their “Magic Box” of plans that they are working on?  They have the Hawaii resort, the Fantasyland Expansion, the Washington National Harbor purchase, and other assorted different projects going on throughout the other parks.  The Fantasyland Expansion has to be costing a pretty penny, and if you have watched any news, or read the internet you would see that Disney profits have not been great because of the economy.

When I look at the financial situation that most of the U.S. is in I only wonder why Disney would keep going with high priced plans that may not pan out profitable immediatelly.  Even the state of Florida made it to 2nd place for foreclosure rate in the nation for November 2009.  NJ seemingly hasn’t had as many foreclosures, but the initial foreclosure rate was very high.

Wife mentioned that we could sell off our house, and move down to the Carolinas.  I explained to her that my business is still successful here, and moving would be be a fatal move for me.  I have done my research, and even the Outer banks foreclosures are high currently.
