A day in the life working at “The Happiest Place on Earth” aka Disney World. Anna is a student completing her paid internship required for her degree in Hospitality Management. She works in Disney’s very own Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Fl as a custodian. You would think sweeping trash and giving directions was a pain, but not when you take into account she gets to have the light shows, parades, and Disney characters surrounding her all the time. It sounds like a blast. She gets a lot of park perks for working there as well as life long friendships made. Her friends here are from all over the world, which she loves the diversity.
She wouldn’t change a thing she says. It is a dream come true, as she has wanted to work at Disney since a child. Anna’s degree choice is solely because she dreams of working at one of the Disney Resorts full time. The process to get to this point involved a web based interview then hopefully a phone interview, and finally you just wait to hear back. Her internship is set to be complete in January, however she says, “I love this company and would work for them forever if the opportunity arose”.
When Anna is not at work she can be found park hopping when she can with friends or acting in various movies and T.V. shows. She has family and friends come to town as often as possible so she can have some fun them on her days off and show them around. Overall Anna says, “I work hard and get rewarded for it. My days are always interesting and usually fun too.” If you have the opportunity to work for Disney and want a future with them she says, “Don’t pass it up.”
