  • What do you think are some of the best and worst jobs at DLR?

    For me, It'd probably be these:

    Worst:
    1. It's a Small World Ride Operator (aaah! the song is still stuck in my head!)
    2. Door Opener for the mini movie in Mickey's Movie Barn
    3. Glow Stick Vendor
    4. Person Who Stands Outside Broken-Down Rides Telling People Not to Go On
    5. Working at the Lost and Found
    6. Usher for 3-D Movies
    Best:
    1. Flying Tinkerbell during fireworks
    2. Imagineer
    3. Employee Costume Designer
    4. Mickey during Fantasmic
    5. Artist at DCA's Animation
    6. Sailing Ship Coulumbia or Mark Twain Steamboat Driver

    actually, I could NEVER be a janitor. The custodians get MAD props from me!

    Best: driving Casey Jr.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

      I would love to be a train conductor or monorail driver or one of those Pin Specialist people who pin trade all day long with their bag and hand out pins to other cast members (sadly this job is going away at the end of September but is rumored to return next summer, when I can get a job!)

          I'm with you on the person who has to clean up after the horses.

          And you have to do it on Main Street with people watching.

            Put me behind the horses any day, but there's no way I would be one of those poor souls that cleans the restrooms. It seems like all they do is go from stall to stall and clean for hours!

                  The best job in DL would be a waiter or waitress in the Blue Bayou Restaurant. When I was there last year i asked our waitress how long she had been there, she said over 7 years. Very little turnover in the BB, very high tips.

                        Worst job would be Tinkerbell's, when her wire breaks!

                        That would be Tink all over................

                            and also selling Glow sticks would be boring.

                              worst-

                              -ANYTHING that has to do with crowd control, like those people guiding the walkways during shows.

                              -Any poor ride op that has to stand outside an attraction and turn people away, and listen to the same questions over and over again.

                              -Any poor ride op that has to stand in the ques for a ride that has just broken down.

                              -Any kind of horse poop cleaners.

                              -City Hall CM, on crowded, hot days, with lots of break downs (and the "I drove all the way from France, paid $50,000 for admission in here, and I want compensation because there's too many people when I came in July" stories)

                              Best:

                              -Haunted Mansion CM (seems pretty laid back)

                              -Ride maintenence worker (seems like fun, if you're into techy stuff)

                              -City Hall CM, during non-peak season.

                                A friend of mine was a Storybook "hostess", or whatever they were called. She said it was the most boring job and she was jealous of her brother who was a sweeper in custodial, because he got to walk around and talk to the guests all day. Apparently sitting on top of that boat wearing knee socks will give you quite an interesting tan, too. She can still snap into "tour voice" and do the whole spiel, along with narrate just about anything. Very funny!

                                  It's funny because here at the MK, the horse cleaning shifts are the most popular. Mainly because you get to watch the parade and the cleanup is simple.

                                    HISTA or Golden Dreams CM: so lonely!
                                    Paradise Pier Midway Games CM: so lonely and embarassing!
                                    Chef: Day after day preparing lousy, overpriced food.
                                    The person who stitches names on mouse ears: "Hey, that looks awful!

                                    Best:

                                    Main St. Vehicle Driver: Relaxing and fun!
                                    Driving Uncle Walt's Firetruck: The dream Disneyland job!
                                    Blue Bayou/Club 33 waiter/waitress: dealing with upscale guests. Good tips.
                                    DLRR Engineer: OK, it's hot... but you're driving a real steam train!

                                      One of the jobs I think would rock is playing Crush on 'Turtle Talk with Crush' since it's probably the only purely voice acting role in the in-park entertainment department.

                                      JungleCruiseGal and I randomly fall into Crush Lingo when we're bored and need a good laugh. Mucho fun. :lol:

                                        The best and worst job would be the President of Disneyland. You would have the job everyone wants but no authority to make any changes without permission !!
