The Happiest Place on Earth and the Perks of Working There
By Space Coast Daily // September 1, 2018
Given the busy lives that we live, it’s no surprise that a lot of us are yearning for a vacation. We just need to heal and rebuild ourselves so we are again able to face our jobs and our lives with a fresh, positive perspective.
Different people have different ideas of what the perfect vacation is. Some would want to be on a beach, bathing not only in the salty waters of the sea but also in the soothing heat of the sun. Some would want to find themselves in the deep woods, where the lush greens and the occasional wildlife vocalizations have the power to make a silent trek spiritually rejuvenating.
Then there are those who have successfully preserved the kid in them. These people would rather be in the happiest place on earth, where their favorite characters, settings and adventures from childhood come alive.
It is a place where candies and pastries just taste a bit sweeter simply because there’s nothing but pure bliss on every horizon.
However, a trip to Disneyland is expensive, especially if you happen to live in places far away. But there’s no need to worry. There’s one sure way to bring yourself to where you should be without incurring too many frightful expenses: work there!
Beyond simply offering you the chance to live in the happiest place in the world (and having discounted passes to some of its most famous attractions), your magical stay will help you grow in new and unique ways.
Customer Service will have a new meaning.
To be visiting Disneyland as a guest is a dream that many have had since they were little kids who laughed at Mickey Mouse’s every antic. Because of this, when some people finally get there, their expectations are sky high.
The pressure of living up to those expectations falls hardest on those who work for the resort. Now that’s challenging! Guests come to expect real magic when all employees can really offer is an earth-bound experience, that while great, can never be devoid of a little hiccup here and there.
That’s why Disney workers train from the beginning to make every experience of their guests as magical as possible. To help them develop the right attitude, they are taught advanced skills in communication and patience. They also learn how to be extra helpful and understanding. This can undoubtedly lead to a newfound appreciation of what customer service really is.
Serious Professional growth will be within reach.
Disneyland opens its doors to different types of workers: full-time, part-time, permanent, and even those who are in it for just a season. Because of the physical requirements of various jobs younger people are invited to work for the park in large numbers every year.
If you are a young person who is still in the middle of figuring things out, working at Disneyland will answer not only your need for a job but also your need for a solid opportunity for professional growth. Disneyland offers scholarship and internships for various skills, from animation and other forms of creative arts up to culinary and hospitality management.
If you work at Disney, you won’t have to wait for discounts. This means you can seriously cut costs on your travel. If you really are from far away, cutting costs on airfare can’t hurt, either.
Book way in advance or wait for a Virgin promo code or other similar offers just so you can save. Hey, even when you’re a cast member (this is what employees at the resort are called) at Disneyland, extra pocket money surely won’t hurt!
