This is yet another sign that Disney World is beginning to return to normal. Due to the ongoing pandemic, tens of thousands of Cast Members have been laid off from the Walt Disney Company, which has been very unfortunate for many. However, it seems that as Orlando tourism has picked up, many Cast Members have slowly begun to be called back to work. And from this job posting, we can continue to see that Disney World needs more help, which is another sign of normalcy.

Disney has also begun to allow Guests to take mask-less photos and Park Hop once again, which is allowing Guests to feel safe while at Disney,  but still experience the magic they loved to see before the pandemic.

Plus, these are not the only recent job openings that we have seen at Disney! Recently we also reported that the Patina Group, which operates a variety of restaurants within Disney World from Disney Springs to EPCOT, have opened up job postings for interested applicants to apply to, and they will be paying you right away if you get the job, even before you work a single shift! That sounds like a great deal to us!

The best thing about this news is that there are even more positions than the ones we listed above! The only catch about the others is that there would not be any signing bonus to tag along with the new job position. However, it would still mean that you get to work at Disney, which is its own bonus!
