Discovery, inspiration and immersion for young people from Sports dans la Ville association

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 Talents 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
