    Ooh, this is tough. I have always wondered what kind of jobs I would like to have at WDW.

    10. Big Thunder Mt. Railroad (I love the costumes, and it's my favorite ride!)
    9. Kilamanjaro Safari Driver (that'd be so fun to drive around)
    8. Great Movie Ride (although, I'd be kind of scared of trying to turn the ride vehicle b/c they're so big.)
    7. Jungle Cruise Skipper (I should have the lines down by now, but they need work)
    6. Tomorrowland's Indy Speedway (those are so fun)
    5. Bus driver (I'd become an expert driver by learning the routes)
    4. Work for DVC (requires a lot of knowledge)
    3. MGM-Studios Backlot Tour (always been a favorite of mine since I was a tyke)
    2. A stunt (probably the girl) for Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular (I used to be petrified of this show, but I love it now!)
    1. Maybe work at OKW, since it's my favorite and only resort that I ever stay.

    These aren't in order of which one is the best. I was doing this as I was thinking about it.

    Just for fun, and if money was not a factor. In no particular order:
    -Grand Floridian Concierge
    -One of those wristband people at Stormalong Bay
    -Guest Activities at Saratoga Springs
    -Tour Guide
    -Bartender at Adventurer's Club
    -Monorail Pilot
    -Mickey Mouse
    -Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon Security (Those fast, white boats that make sure we are behaving ourselves in our Sea Raycers)
    -Sales, Marketing, and Promotions.
    -DVC Sales Rep

    And my fantasy job:
    Official Taste Tester for all food on every menu in every restaurant. Think about it- it's EASILY a full time job, and the benefits speak for themselves.
    Por favor mantengese alejado de las puertas.

    After I read the list of pre-reqs for the castmembers in this show a couple years back (I guess they were lookin' for new recruits), my respect for the role of the gal has gone waaaaay up. In addition to odds and ends like a height cut-off, extensive backgrounds in gymnastics and "stage combatives" (heh, makes me wish my high school drama scene was a little more hardcore), there's a pretty rigorous physical screening, as well. As of 2002/2003, anyway, a Marian Ravenwood hopeful had to be able to bust out six dead-hang pullups.

    Heck, most men can't do that without cheating......

    My top 10, in no particular order...

    10. LMA stunt driver (I actually know someone who just got this job! I am VERY jealous!!!!!)
    9. Jungle Cruise Skipper (I think this one will be on everyone's list.)
    8. Jamminator (I was a drummer in high school and still love to play.)
    7. Haunted Mansion Door Man (It just seems like it would be fun to scare people a little every day.)
    6. Monorail Pilot (I hope they don't replace them with automated Monorails!!)
    5. WDWRR conductor (I love steam trains, and I would be able to see the yard.)
    4. Ferry Boat Skipper (I love seeing the looks on the kids faces when they see the Castle for the first time.)
    3. Ride operator at Space Mountain (Still one of the best rides in the World.)

    These last two are my two top choices.
