Once you step inside Walt Disney World Resort, you can’t miss the ear-to-ear smiles and cheerful faces of our Cast Members who are ready to help create memories that our guests will always cherish. And there’s no better time to join the Cast at Walt Disney World Resort in the quick service restaurant, transportation, housekeeping and vacation planning areas in full-time, part-time and seasonal opportunities.
To give you a sneak peek at what it’s like to be a part of the magic, we took a trip to the award-winning Be Our Guest Restaurant inside Magic Kingdom Park. We met with Cast Member Andrew Bosko, who gave us an inside look into his role as a food services coordinator.
Name: Andrew Bosko
First Day at Disney: November 22, 2011
Title: Food Services Coordinator
You have a unique opportunity to create the ideal experience for so many guests around the world. Tell us about your role.
My team brings outstanding quality service and food to our guests at Magic Kingdom Park. We are also proud to be the first “flex” restaurant that offers lunch at a fast casual pace, and for dinner, transforms into a table-service restaurant with three separate themed dining rooms. No matter when you’re enjoying a meal, Be Our Guest Restaurant brings the story ofBeauty and the Beast alive in every detail around you. And as the restaurant transforms, there are many food and beverage roles that Cast Members can perform throughout the day including, cashier, host, filler, busser, stocker and more. Each Cast Member also plays a unique role in telling the story of Belle and Beast.
