Disney has long been known as the “happiest place on Earth,” but is it just that for the people who work there? Its employees are famously secretive about the behind-the-scenes happenings that make it so seemingly perfect, 24/7, and rarely do we get a glimpse at the truth behind their mysterious nine-to-fives. But once in awhile, a former employee (definitely someone who doesn’t work there anymore, it’s never someone who still does) will come forward with some truth bombs that leave us mind blown, and pretty jealous, NGL. It's a sweet gig.
Over the weekend, a former Disney employee took to reddit for an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session and answered tons of questions about what it’s really like to work at the famous amusement park. He gave out a lot of information, but here are some of his most interesting insights.
1. They DO get free park admission, but guest passes have to be earned.
2. Elsa is stuck up (lol).
3. There's an "opening checklist" and a "closing checklist" for every ride.
4. A lot of people work there.
5. They're super strict about their food service.
6. It's one big show.
7. Characters are no joke.
8. Outside character shifts aren't very long.
9. All the Mickey actors have to know the autograph.
10. The underground tunnels are real.
11. It is, in fact, the happiest place on Earth.
