    Depends on the position. You can be 16 to do foods or entertainment, but you must be 18 to work attractions.

    Is that in the park or for the park... there are quite a few souvenirs packed in boxes labeled "Made in China".

    It depends, I think.

    Characters are 18, I do believe. You have to be graduating highschool.

    Parades vary, sometimes sixteen (This years Christmas parade was sixteen).

    And 18 to work any attractions, graduating highschool.

    Just an FYI....Foods is now very rarely 16. You really have to impress your recruiter....or you have to be coming from an ROP programs. Otherwise it's 17 & a graduating senior.

    If you get hired into attractions before 18, you'll be in Guest Control full time until you turn 18. Some like it, some don't.

    You have to be 18 to work in attractions because it is a safety issue. You have to be responsible with machinary and buttons.

    To work on an attraction, that is. You CAN get hired in if you're close. Example, sometimes NOCC hires in 17 year olds for the summer if their birthday is in August or September, to pad their Fantasmic! workload.
