While traveling the West Coast last March with my little sister Chanapha, we visited Disneyland Anaheim for two days, reunited with a good friend of mine Moses who was super kind to show us around the city and took us to eat tacos and donuts. Been really fortunate to work with incredible team at the happiest place on earth Disney World for a year now, I would like to share a little information that every year The Walt Disney World in Florida hire international people from all over the world to promote their culture, this unique opportunity opens for fresh graduate or young professionals who interested to explore their talents with Disney for 12 months on Disney International Program, it is a paid program for a year that offers the participants from throughout the world the opportunity to work and learn from one of the world’s leading entertainment company.

One of the privileges of being Disney employees or Cast Members is you’ll get to play at The Walt Disney World for free. Disney World has 4 theme parks ( EPCOT , Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Magic Kingdom ), cast members usually get 3 passes where you can take up to 3 of your family members or friends to the parks. Even better in the end of the year, the company will give you extra complimentary tickets which you can use to visit Disney World, Disneyland California, Disneyland Hong Kong, and Disneyland Paris. Again, it’s all for free !
Cast Members get 20 – 40 % discounts on food and beverages and merchandise at Disney properties, 50 – 60 % discounts on hotel rates, with big discounts like that we admitted that 50 % of our paycheck in the end of the week goes back to Disney as it’s just impossible not to shop or eat at Disney World.
