As part of ongoing efforts to inform, motivate and inspire future generations, Disneyland Paris welcomed young people from the Sport dans la Ville association’s “Young Talent Summer Camp” program to discover various jobs in hotels, reception, sales and restaurants. They had the chance to meet employees of various nationalities working in a number of roles to discuss their international experience and practice their English.
Focus on Hotel jobs
On June 30th, 12 participants had the opportunity to learn more about the hotel field at the newly opened Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel. After a tour of the hotel guided by an Art Guardian, they met Cast Members from reception, concierge and room service, as well as the manager of the Downtown Restaurant, who explained their different roles. Two Cast Members who took part in the international exchange program at Walt Disney World Resort also shared their experiences. Discovering the jobs, exchanging ideas and advice allowed the participants to better understand the hotel business in an international environment. Sports dans la Ville program organizer Marie Normant said “ As part of this Young Talent
s Summer Camp, young people discovered the environment and the jobs at Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, meeting inspiring employees to imagine themselves in real international experiences.”
Discovery at the heart of Disneyland Park
On July 7th, 18 participants from the same program were immersed in the magic of Disneyland Park and its jobs. For the program, they met Cast Members and discovered the hospitality jobs at City Hall and at Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast, as well as for restauration at the Plaza Garden Restaurant and finally of sales at the Emporium store! They also met Cast Members of various nationalities and exchanged with them in English.
After a morning of job immersion, they even had time to experience the park attractions themselves!
Disneyland Paris counts thousands Cast Members of 120 nationalities who exercise their talents in more than 500 different professions. Their role is key to create the unique experience that our guests enjoy every day in our parks and hotels.
