What if you could have any job at WDW, what would your dream job be?

I used to be pretty adamant about never wanting to work at Disney World..but recently because I've been around a TON of Wedding stuff lately I think I would love to be a Disney Wedding Planner.

I just believe you and Dave would get along smashingly if you ever met. These are his top picks as well.

I think if I worked on a ride I would want to do one of the interactive ones like jungle cruise or great movie ride or be in a show or parade or something. Also think it would be fun to work in Epcot in the countries....Or be a cast member who trades pins since I love to do that and would be doing it all day long.

I could be predictable and say monorail pilot, but I'd probably be happier designing the machinery that goes into the rides and attractions.

I would like to be one of the guys who sets up and sets off the various fireworks displays around WDW. Like Wishes and Illuminations or Fantasmic.

I have been trying to decide which job I would like to have at Disney. My first thought was being one of the characters. Then that idea was quickly squashed by the 90 degree weather we've been having here plus flash backs from college. I worked for a greeting card company one summer during college and on occasion I dressed in the Snoopy costume for special events. The events were indoors with AC but it was still hot in the costume. I can't even imagine what it would be like dressed in a custome in Florida in the summer.

Then today while at AAA it hit me what my dream Disney job would be = helping others plan their dream Disney vacations.

I like this idea! I'd say either a weddings or events planner, or back to the pastry shop. Except for the crazy early hours and low pay, I liked the job. Or...with enough training and weighloss...a dancer in the Dreams Come True show Smile

That would be fun! I've always wondered if their compensation was tied to their work in anyway, like if they get bonuses if people buy their photos, or if they have to have a certain number bought per month or something, like a quota.

My hubby was a Photopass photographer and their compensation is not tied in any way to the photos they take. In fact they are expressly "separate" from the sales end of the business. Disney does not want park guests to feel "pressured". He in fact quite regularly took pictures for guests with their own cameras!

That's cool Millie! I did not know your husband was a CM!!

I always appreciate how the PP photogs will take your picture with your camera..it's just nice to have a break from the hold-out-your-arm-and-try-and-get-both-of-us-in-the-shot type of picture.
