Disney World is Hiring

Inside the Magic shared earlier this year that Disney added job listings for bus drivers at the Walt Disney World Resort and for a Principle Fireworks Designer, who will lead the team and be in charge of special effects and designs for nighttime spectaculars.

As Disney moves forward and begins hiring more Cast Members in 2021, we are happy to announce that four more jobs have appeared on the Disney Careers official website.

Housekeeping – Full Time, Walt Disney World

There is nothing like the feeling of walking into a Disney Resort hotel. Disney strives to make lasting memories for Guests and their families — and it can start from the moment you walk into your room. The unique themed scents and clean environment can create a second-home feeling.

Housekeeping Cast Members have many responsibilities, including “maintaining Guest areas and backstage locations”, cleaning Guest rooms, vacuuming, dusting, and interacting with Guests at the Resort.

Walt Disney World Resort is searching for full-time positions at a starting rate of $16.00/hour, with benefits including healthcare and retirement plans.

Analyze and troubleshoot concerns using data and use proper action to meet the operating objective. Conduct preventative and routine maintenance on facilities and equipment. Ensure the sanitation of the water system and validate the quality and quantity customers receive. The field service position may include work from elevated platforms and confined spaces throughout the Walt Disney World Parks and Resort property.
