Top Jobs We’d Want in Walt Disney World

So many of us dream of one day working at Walt Disney World.  With around 50,000 Cast Members throughout the Walt Disney World Resort Property, there are numerous opportunities to work within the magic.

When we stop and think about which jobs we’d want to have in Walt Disney World, there are few that are at the top of the list.  Take a look at our top jobs we’d want in Walt Disney World and see if you would agree.

Photopass Photographer

Throughout Walt Disney World, Guests can find Disney Photopass Photographers.  These Cast Members are trained to capture those magical moments for Guests.

These Cast Members not only have the opportunity to create magic for Guests by adding pixie dust to the photos, but they also have the amazing task of capturing amazing magical moments.

From family photos to proposals, Photopass Photographers truly are part of the Walt Disney World magic.

These Cast Members can be found throughout the Four Theme Parks, at Disney Springs, and even at some of the Resorts.  We think being a Photopass Photographer would be a great job to have at Walt Disney World so we could help make and capture magical moments each day for Guests as they visit a Theme Park.

Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Bellhop

Another job that we would love to have would be the bellhops at the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Most jobs in Walt Disney World require a positive and cheery personality all the time, but not here.

We think it would be fun to eerily beckon Guests into the elevators and add our own laughter before the doors close on them.

We have had some amazing, and some what terrifying in a Disney way, interactions with Cast Members at Tower of Terror and we think it would be fun job to try out.

One of the few spots in Walt Disney World that adding magic means adding a little bit of scary.

First Order Guards in Rise of the Resistance

A newer job that we find fascinating and super intimidating each time are the First Order guards on Rise of the Resistance.

Like the bellhops on Tower of Terror, the Cast Members that create this roll are outstanding and truly add to the overall magic of this experience.

Being able to be demanding of Guests and critical of them makes for a unique job that you won’t find in most jobs at Walt Disney World.  This is why we think this job would be one we would want in Walt Disney World.

Character Attendant

Being able to hang out with our favorite Walt Disney World character is something that we would love to do.

Each character has a Disney handler that stays with them throughout the day.  Being able to help Mickey himself or Winnie the Pooh visit with happy Guests would be extremely rewarding.

Right now, this job looks a little different as our beloved characters aren’t meeting Guests one-on-one making the role of the character attendant a little different.

Once meet and greets are back in Walt Disney World, we think that being a character attendant would be a fun job to have.

Kilimanjaro Safaris

Kilimanjaro Safari Guide

As we love the amazing animals found on Kilimanjaro Safari in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we think being a guide on this ride would be extremely fun.

Cast Members are tour guides as they drive the open-air trucks throughout the reserve.  As no tour is the same, this job will be different each and every tour.

We think this would be a great way to see the animals throughout the day while helping teach Guests about them.

Jungle Cruise

Jungle Cruise Skipper

Just like the tour guides on Kilimanjaro Safari, the skippers on the Jungle Cruise are tour guides through the different rivers of the world.

This job is top of our list as we would love to be able to crack all the jokes as well as be able to improvise which isn’t always allowed on rides.

During the holidays we would love to be a part of the Jingle Cruise as the whole ride gets a holiday overlay.

Working on the Jungle Cruise is definitely a job that we would love to have in Walt Disney World- who wouldn’t want to be able to see the backside of water each and every day!

Happily Ever After

Nighttime Crowd Control

We realize that not everyone would think this would be a top job to have at Walt Disney World, but hear us out.

Working a nighttime show would allow us to see the magical shows each evening.  Cast Members that work these shows get to see the awe and wonder each and every night.

Although it might not be the easiest job in Walt Disney World, we think that it would be a magical one.


This one might seem strange to a lot of people, but we would love just once to have the job of Tinkerbell at night in the Magic Kingdom.

Talk about bringing magic to Guests, when Tink flies over Magic Kingdom during Disney Enchantment, you can hear the excitement from Guests.

Although this won’t be for everyone as the height might turn you away, we think that flying just once would be amazing.

When we dream about working in Walt Disney World in the future, these are some of the top jobs we would want to have.  Each of them are unique in their own way and would allow us to create magical experiences for Guests which is the whole goal of Walt Disney World.

What job would you want to have in Walt Disney World?  Did we miss your top choice?
