    What Are the Age/School Requirements to Get a Job?

    Hi guys, I was about to apply for Disneyland, but was told you have to be 17 AND a graduating senior. Meaning you had to be in (my situation) Spring semester (last semester for high school) in order to get a job. I'm 17, but I won't be a senior, rather a junior. Does anyone know what the requirements are? I am thinking the best bet is to call the casting center, but I thought my fellow MiceChats will know.

    There were two other threads in January on this subject.
    They do have a website.
    If you search the Disneyland.com website you'll find it.\


    Edit:

    Sorry about that. When about to apply you get "Most roles require candidates to be at least 17 years of age and a graduating high school senior. If hired, proof of age will be required for verification." I guess I'll have to call them. I could of bet I saw someone post on another site saying they got a job at 17 as a junior.

    best thing to do

    They MAY have an exception.
    It seems (from what I read on the requirements) Disney really like applicants who are bascially done with High School, henceforth the senior (looks like age plays a good part, but schooling def. does) part in the guidelines.
