For so many, a job at Disney World is the DREAM job!
Really, though, there’s much more to working at Disney than wearing costumes or being an Imagineer — in fact, there are some odd jobs you’ve probably never even thought of!
As evidenced by Disney World’s recurring job fairs, there are PLENTY of opportunities to work at the Most Magical Place on Earth!
If you’re into pyrotechnics, there might be a place for you at Disney World!
Typically, setting off explosives on the job is frowned upon. Unless, of course, you’re a Fireworks Designer!
Indeed, as Disney World worked to bring back their fireworks shows, they were recruiting for people to design and create fireworks spectacles, which is probably about as niche as it gets.
Artists of all sorts are pretty commonplace in Disney World, whether they’re slinging merch at the Festival of the Arts or crafting culinary art, but there’s one SUPER specific type of artist that you probably never thought of!
Pavement Artists are the talented folks who illuminate walkways with gorgeous chalk art, occasionally seen at EPCOT festivals especially.
Sometimes these are custodians who just so happen to be low-key artists, but often Disney just employs artists with a particular affinity for pavement.
If you thought Disney World animatronic characters were born beautiful, you’d be wrong!
Animatronics Costumers are people who create outfits for moving characters on rides. Unlike motionless characters, the clothes have to be specifically designed to withstand the motion.
Ya know, so Jack Sparrow’s outfit doesn’t literally fall apart at the seams.
Yeehaw! Most people think of Ranch Hands as working in places like, say, Montana. But they’re just as hirable at Disney World!
After all, SOMEONE needs to care for and train the horses!
Of course, this particular job might also entail dressing up in old-timey garb and wearing elaborate wigs to steer Cinderella-worthy carriages, but that’s just part of the gig.
If you’ve got an affinity for scuba diving, it turns out you’ve got more options than being a marine biologist!
Disney World employs Underwater Machinists to expect, upkeep, and tend to water rides after the parks close.
This includes rides like Jungle Cruise, Kali River Rapids, and Splash Mountain, checking on boats, clearing debris off tracks, and ensuring underwater mechanics are ship-shape!
So if you’ve always dreamed of working at Disney World and you’ve got a penchant for pyrotechnics or scuba diving, there might be a place for YOU at the Most Magical Place on Earth!
Whether you have an uncanny resemblance to Disney royalty or a talent for working with equines, Disney has all sorts of employment opportunities. It takes Cast Members of all kinds to keep the magic alive for guests.
