Former Character Attendant at The Walt Disney Company
almost 3 years ago
A day in the life of a character attendant can be stressful, but so rewarding. You get to hang out with your favorite Disney characters and make magic for guests who come and see them! In my opinion it's all about multitasking. You have to keep the line in check, answer guest questions, be a voice for the characters, keep a smile through it all and always be positive. It might seem like a lot at first, but once you get the hang of it it can be so much fun. There will always be hard days like working in the sun, dealing with stressed out guests and having to make sure the character is safe. There are also fun days like goofing around with the characters, making magical moments for guests and also having the opportunity to be with lots of different characters. It is such a fun job and I recommend it highly for anyone who's interested in doing it.
