Walt Disney World searching for 3,500 new cast members

Want to work for Mickey Mouse? The annual spring hiring event at Walt Disney World is underway as part of an effort to fill over 3,500 roles across the resort. Available positions include full-time, part-time and seasonal roles within housekeeping, transportation, lifeguard, food and beverage and many more. Some positions are eligible for hiring bonuses of up to $3,000.

If you can make, you should checkout these job fairs in person where you can apply and possibly interview on the spot:

  • Housekeeping Hiring Days & Job Fair – Housekeeping Hiring Days are held every Monday through Friday throughout April and May from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and on Wednesday, May 9, a housekeeping job fair will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. – all held at the Walt Disney World Resort Casting Center. Disney Cast Members will be available to answer questions, assist with the application process and conduct interviews on the spot.
  • Lifeguard Job Fair – On May 2 at Typhoon Lagoon, candidates who are 16 years or older will interview and complete onsite swim tests for an opportunity to become part of the Disney team.
  • Culinary Job Fair – On Monday, April 23, at ESPN Wide World of Sports, qualified candidates can learn about available culinary roles, meet with chefs and interview with recruiters.
  • Bus Driver Online Job Fair – Held online through May 31, candidates interested in joining a team that’s always on the move can apply for available part-time and full-time roles.

Otherwise eligible candidates should apply online at WaltDisneyWorld.jobs/spring.

Walt Disney World Resort is committed to providing their Cast Members with opportunities to reach their professional goals through access to a wide range of benefits and training in transferable skills. They offer a comprehensive total rewards package inclusive of complimentary theme park admission, access to onsite child care centers, Cast-exclusive offerings and events, as well as discounts at select merchandise, dining and recreation locations. Full-time Cast Members may also be eligible to receive medical, dental and vision benefits, as well as paid time off.

Want to get hired? My advice is to dress professionally. Show up with a lot of energy and a big smile on your face. It’s okay to let them know you’re a fan of the product and have wanted to help make the magic for guests for a long time, but don’t go over the top with your fandom. It helps to be well rounded, a team player, and have some volunteerism in your background.

Do any of these roles call to you?
