Working at Disneyworld was hard and strenuous, yet fulfilling and educating. A typical day would range from a 6 hour shift to 14 hour day, weeks involved hours from 40 hours- 70 hours a week. Working in attractions involved walking in a moving belt, loading and unloading guests on and off the ride. Also involved hosting a show and crowd control for fireworks shows. There were a variety positions involved at each attraction that ranged from wheelchairs to operating the ride etc.
Dealing with all kinds of people from all over the world, some being very very difficult, while keeping a level and open mind at all times.
Constantly challenged everyday, having to deal with all kinds of situations you could think of, there was not one day that was the same, and no situation that was the same.
Co workers involved people from all over the world, which was the greatest part of the job, being able to work with people from other places made it interesting, but also never having the same people on at the same time, always different.
Hardest part of the job was the long hours, dealing with difficult guests and constantly being challenged mentally and physically.
The biggest lesson learnt on this job was that hard work pays off, that nothing comes easy and that making the smallest gesture can change someones whole holiday. We had the power to make or break a families holiday, and seeing the smiles a family has after you do something small from them, especially the children is priceless.
