A summerized version of guest interactions recently:
Guest: Do you have Olafs?
Me: Sorry but we are sold out resort wide.
Guest: Do you think Disneyland will have them?
Me: Disneyland, World of Disney, and the Disneyland hotel’s gift shops do not have any, we are sold out resort wide.
Guest: But I saw someone with an Olaf in the park, you must have them.
Me: We do not have any Olafs, they must have gotten theirs at another time.
Guest: This is Disneyland, you have to sell Olaf.
Me: We do sell Olaf, but we are sold out.
Guest: How can you be sold out?
Me: He is a popular character, and most of our Frozen merchandise sells out fast.
Guest: Do you know when you’re going to get any? Like tomorrow maybe?
Me: We get shipments of random items every day, but I do not know when Olaf will be back, if you want to check tomorrow you’d best be sure to get into a store when it opens because they don’t last long.
Guest: This is ridiculous, how can you be sold out of Olafs?
(and the conversation repeats itself over and over again)
I would suggest staring here http://disneycareers.com/en/default/. Create your account and then apply for the jobs that are available, regardless of the job (well make sure you have the proper qualifications) like custodial, becuase when it comes time for your interview you might be given other options. I think for most jobs at disney you need a diploma or GED (each job has different qualifications). Applying online is the only way, but Disney is constantly hiring new people. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t hear anything back for a while, it took me 5 months to get an interview. Good luck :)
Tonight is getting better!!!!! My friend bought me a pineapple skewer AND my closing assignment is the plush wall!!! Yay me!
And it’s baked potato day!!!
