Magical Blogorail - Disney Dream Job

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Blue. Enjoy the ride as we share with you our Disney Dream Job.

Every trip to Walt Disney World, I look around and wonder "Which Cast Member job would I want when I retire?"  I have yet to find the absolute perfect job - which works, because I have 20 more years and many more visits to actually decide.  But, here are my current favorite options:

1. Casey's Corner Piano... Woman.
Did you know that I started taking piano lessons at age 4 and continued until I was 16, when I decided the clarinet was more my "thing."  I took a semester of lessons in college and continue practicing on a regular basis, and even playing occasionally at work.  Honestly, I'd love to work on Main Street.  I'm not so much a character, but how amazing would it be to interact with guests as entertainment?  
2. Main Street Bakery - Baked goods and Main Street?  Can't beat that!  Plus, if you're lucky, the Dapper Dans will pop in for a quick song!  And, working in the bakery would definitely inspire me to continue running the WDW half marathons.. have to burn off the calories of all those amazing treats!!
3. Last, but definitely not least -

I want to teach Traditions.  Now, I've never been a cast member, so I've never sat through the class and know very little about it.  I know it's a 1.5 day class taught to all knew cast members - it's part of their orientation.  With an education degree and years of teaching (mostly 1 on 1 lesson) experience, I think it flows with my education, AND it teaches the history, customs, and traditions of Walt Disney and the parks.  What could be better?

I recently read that Traditions is a volunteer leap from other cast member positions.  So, I can start at Casey's Corner and move over after the heat gets to me!  

What is your Disney Dream Job?

  1. I love that! Thanks!!

  2. I'd love to be a nurse at the First Aid stations... that or a CM at Town Hall. So fun. BTW... love the new look of the blog.

  3. I am going to have to agree that as a former teacher I would LOVE to teach the Traditions class. What a dream!

  4. Those are awesome choices. I can't really decide what my dream Disney job is, I just know I want to be there. :)

  5. I think that the bakery sounds like an awesome job to me! Of course, teaching the Traditions class would be too! :)

  6. I've never played piano, other instruments but not piano. I think that would be really fun!

  7. I never taught Traditions, but I did do the following day orientation in the park (DHS) for new hires. Traditions had been a dream job of mine, as had Ambassador :-).

  8. so fun!! One regret I have is quitting piano. Way to think outside of the box!! :)

    Disney is my retirement dream too :) I'd love to be behind the scenes in the pastry kitchens, working on those amazing wedding cakes!

  10. I'd love to work in the Bakery also...of course, the smells all day would be torture:)

  11. What great aspirations! I think I'd like to take the traditions class. I, too, dream of one day working at Disney.

  12. I would love to work at Main Street Bakery creating all those delectable treats! Good choice! :-)

  13. I would love to be part of the food development team, helping them make allergy safe food. Or a Jungle Cruise captain! Heck, even custodial would be fine with me! Especially if I got to draw with water on the sidewalks.
