    Smile Chance to Win a Disney Parks 'Dream Job' Announced

    Chance to Win a Disney Parks 'Dream Job' Announced

    CareerBuilder.com and Disney Parks' announced today (January 25, 2007) a national search that will give Americans the opportunity to live out their Disney Parks "Dream Job" for a day.

    A national consumer employment survey conducted by Harris Interactive revealed that nearly four out of five U.S. workers (84 percent) are not currently in their dream jobs. The majority of the 6,000 U.S. workers surveyed thought it would be fun to work at a Disney theme park (57 percent). Most respondents dreamed of navigating the waters as a Jungle Cruise Skipper (28 percent) while others chose to take the royal route and see if the glass slipper fit as a Fantasyland Princess-in- Waiting (20 percent). Still other respondents wanted to get chills and thrills by being a Haunted Mansion Butler or Maid (19 percent).

    As Disney is traditionally the place 'Where Dreams Come True,' Disney's domestic theme parks are giving Americans the chance to live out their "Dream Jobs" in conjunction with its "Year of a Million Dreams" celebration. Interested parties 18 years and older are invited to submit their virtual resumes online from January 24 through February 20 at http://www.careerbuilder.com/disneydreamjobs to win the opportunity to work at a Disney theme park for one day. Participants will be asked to showcase their most original and creative Disney resumes including why they want to work at a Disney Park, qualifications and skills for their desired position, as well as why this is their Disney Parks "Dream Job." Five finalists will be selected for each "Dream Job" by the public to win the chance to become a Jungle Cruise Skipper, Haunted Mansion Butler or Maid, Apprentice Pirate, Fantasyland Princess-in-Waiting or a Disney Park Parade Performer. Winners will receive a trip to the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California in June 2007 where they will live out their dream jobs. Complete rules and regulations can be found at the above website.

    Between Walt Disney World in Orlando and Disneyland in Anaheim, there are approximately 80,000 Cast Members currently employed. To learn more
    about the several thousand permanent positions available including fun jobs such as Jungle Cruise Skipper, Parade Performer, Lost and Found Operator or Topiary Designer, call (407) 828-1000 for Walt Disney World and (800) 766-0888 for Disneyland.

    it is funny because when i read this im not excited. I used to work in disney. I worked at the Dinosaur attraction and i absolutely hated it!! Ruined the "magic" of disney. The worst was walking underground one day at the MK and i saw captain hook putting on his tights then proceeded to see Cinderella smoking out back after the parade was over!! I was mortified. Plus you had to be the "perfect" person back then. Stand the right way, point the right way, hair and makeup a certain way!! Needless to say i did not stay very long and it too me a good year to get all of what i saw out of my head before i could go back there. Now i can have my picture taken with Mickey now and not be so horrified!! When you see mickey putting his head on it is kind of scary!!!

    That sounds like fun - will have to sign up from home.
    Although my Disney Dream job isn't listed, I think being a HM butler or parade performer would be fun.
    Nothing to countdown to, so just smile and be happy everyday!

    OOO fun...but I wonder if they will let me be the person who changs light bulbs on Main St or the person who polishes the poles on the carrousel? LOL

    Worth a shot to try.
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    Yeah, my real Disney Dream Job would be the person who comes in and repaints the attractions, buildings, etc. Now that would be some art work I would greatly enjoy doing!
