    Ride Operator Jobs

    Hello all! Fist off I would like to say that I am new to this site, so forgive me for not reading through everything on here to make sure my question hasn't been asked already. Ha.

    With that being said I was wondering if any of you know how one goes about getting a ride operator job at Disney. Specifically for something like The Great Movie Ride. I know they have a job posting page but those postings appear to be for higher up positions or the like.

    Thanks for any insight you can provide and have a magical day!

    For hourly positions please visit Walt Disney World | Career Opportunities | Disney

    As far as getting a job that spiels like the Great Movie Ride, Jungle Cruise or innoventions pavilions you can request it when you apply, and most likely they will look to see if there are any openings.

    However once you get hired after 6 months (please correct me if I am wrong) you can transfer positions. So if you end up in Buzz Block, or Fantasyland West you can apply to any internal openings for Ad Lib (jungle cruise) or to GMR (great movie ride).

    I hope this helps.

    For GMR, you have to pick Icon attractions then hope you get GMR (as there is no way to specifically put individual attractions). Of course, if you get into Icon, you can always cross-train between attractions (I started out at GMR, still here right now, and a year later I cross-trained to learn MuppetVision).
