Disney World is Hiring 3,500 New Cast Members!

There’s a lot going on in Disney World right now, so it should come as no surprise that they need to add to their team. Most notably, Toy Story Land is opening on June 30th, 2018, in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney needs to staff this whole new area. For this and other reasons, summer tourism is expected to be at an all-time high in the next several months.

Disney announced that they’re hosting job fairs for a variety of positions, and they need to hire 3,500 people for seasonal, part-time, and full-time positions before the end of May!

Positions include housekeeping, transportation, lifeguard, and dining, and those who are hired full-time are eligible for medical, dental, and vision insurance, paid time off, and a signing bonus of up to $3,000!

Disney is hiring lots of Cast Members to fill positions this summer!
