Yesterday, I returned home from a 5-day trip to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. My 16-year-old sister performed in Epcot with her high school’s show choir and my family went along to watch and play.
What a great trip! If you haven’t been to Disney World, I highly recommend it. The employees, known as “cast members” throughout the parks are the nicest people and will go out of their way to ensure that you are having a good time.
I’ve been to Disney many times as a child, but going at age 21 made me realize the work that must go into keeping the parks running smoothly.
Disney World gives college students the opportunity to work in a variety of different avenues including entertainment, attractions, hospitality, housekeeping and many more in their college program.
You can also apply for a professional internship which gives students or recent graduates the chance to work for Disney on a more professional level. While at Epcot, I walked into Guest Relations to make a dinner reservation and met a PR student who worked at the Guest Relations desk. She said she absolutely loved her job and had also done the college program and had a great experience.
I would love to do PR for Disney World. Who wouldn’t?
Upon looking for more information about how to break into PR at Disney (which I imagine is probably pretty difficult) I came across their news website which features press releases, photos and videos. I also noticed that they recently made a Twitter site, so they are clearly paying attention to PR and social media trends.
I still haven’t figured out how to get that dream job of mine, but I’m definitely considering applying for a professional internship upon graduation to try to get my foot in the door.
Do any of our readers have any experience working for Disney? I’d love to hear about your experiences.
