It’s not a huge secret that Florida is one of the top destinations for retirees. There’s warm weather, beaches, and tons of places to relax. Orlando is a great spot to relocate, especially if you have children and grandchildren visiting, for obvious reasons. But getting a little stir crazy and bored isn’t uncommon. Disney World is a great place to work if you’re looking for an easy-going part time job. You’d be surprised to know how many Disney cast members are actually already retired. If this is something you want to look into in your near or distant future, here are what we would consider the top 15 Disney World jobs for retirees.
1. Show/Attraction Attendant
Working in an attraction like the American Adventure at Epcot or Mickey’s Philharmagic in Magic Kingdom would definitely be a laid back kind of job.
2. Selling Tickets
Sitting in an air conditioned booth, telling guests about which ticket option would be best for them, doesn’t sound like such a bad deal. This job is ideal for any retiree who loves helping people.
3. Front Entrance Operations
Whether you are checking bags or scanning Magic Bands, if you enjoy seeing people in their most excited state, this job is for you!
4. Character Attendant
So maybe dressing up in full hair and make-up isn’t really for you anymore, following the character and possibly taking pictures, might be! People get really excited when they see their favorite character, and who wouldn’t love to be around that happiness everyday?
