  • Are there autistic employees at Disney World?

    It sounds like a weird question but I am curious if anyone knows Disney's stance on hiring people who suffer from non-physical impairments such as autism and such. What kind of places do they work at in the parks?

    The official policy is that Disney is an "EOE* - Drawing Creativity from Diversity", so I assume that they have the same chance of getting hired as anyone else. As to where they would work in the parks, I would imagine it would be somewhere where they wouldn't be able to hurt themselves or others, so maybe something backstage like costuming or the like?
