  • Traditions, Tie Required?

    Having trouble getting through to the Cast Member line.
    Can I leave it off, or should wear it?

      Like Global said, you don't need it. But I know a few people wore them.. I think you get your photo taken for your badge though. So however you want to be seen on that badge..

        Remember NETWORKING in this company is everything. you never know who your going to met and you may never see this person for a year, but you could strike up a conversation like" oh you were one of the people running my traditions class"

          I had my picture taken last week with the paperwork.
          Good to hear I can leave it off, I'm not a fan of them much.
          But I do hope I'm not the ONLY guy without one...

          Do you mention networking, as in, I'll look bad without a tie and should wear one?

              Sometimes Kevin and I disagree with each other, many times he ends up being right. But I figure I'll still offer my opinion.. in a younger crowd, ties do look very keen. I'm not sure what it is, but it would definitely fall under both professional and slightly 'cool.' So anyone in their teens to 20's definitely benefits from wearing a tie. However, it's really up to you and your style.

              I wore a tie on my 'traditions' class. I didn't wear a fancy suit jacket or anything, in fact, I wore a more 'hip' jacket and I didn't do my tie all the way up. Most people didn't wear a tie.. and I work for corporate Disney.

              Now my traditions might be different than yours - but there is a time where you find out where everyone is going to. Write down the names of important people and start up conversations (get their last name, too). Later on, go onto the hub and look these people up and make note of them again.. write them an email, add them to linkedin, and keep in touch. You never know.. I have earned a lot of favors through connections, and I try to make additional ones whenever I can.

              Here, you know me. I work here. Connections+1.

                Thats a very cool tip CoP. I am a woman and I know that we get a much broader selection on what to wear as far as business attire. But it is very good advice about making connections and networking. I worked for the Disney Store for years and I recently got hired in at disneyland as a Vacation planner. I am definitely looking forward to longevity with the company. So its good to know that things arent too different from what The Disney Store is about. I certainly got far there with knowing the right people. Thanks for giving such wonderful advice for us "newbies"

                  Pink are you working in the park or do you get to work with the cool kids on Center street with me. Though im not on the GITS team we work in the same office as they do.

                  Or is travel planner just a better word for ticket seller//taker? I cant remember we try to make things sound 100% better then they are sometimes LOL

                    I also carry a few business cards even when I'm in the park. Usually I hand them out to CM's who are very interested in working in other parts of Disney. (Usually they are college students who work for Disneyland and then want to transfer when they graduate).

                        You won't be taking passport pics. They don't do that anymore.

                              yeah, you're either a ticket seller (aka Vacation Planner) and you'll be working in the booths or at the ticket carts, or a photo taker and you'll be in the parks....two different departments. two different pay scales...which is it? Whats a "fancy" ticket?
                              Anyone can wear a lanyard and trade pins...that's not really a "job" and anyone can get assigned to guest control at any time.

                              Either way...its fun to work at DL - So enjoy!!!
