The Magic Kingdom


Turns out the happiest place on earth might not be very friendly for employees.

Over the past couple week’s employees at Disney theme parks have been sharing some of their backstage secrets. And it turns out, the magic kingdom might not be all rainbows and butterflies. One of the most common complaints among employees is the strict dress code. They say you can't have tattoos, piercings or anything that shows individuality.

And when it comes to playing a lead role there are certain qualifications. Disney princesses have to be a certain height and weight in order to put on the world famous costumes. Another major complaint; dealing with guests. One person said they know exactly how not to raise children. Another said some of the guests are so mean they would leave their shift in tears. The worst was probably the person who said they need a few drinks in order to make it through the day.

On the other hand some employees say they like having access to the costumes and enjoy making someone's day. Plus there's got to be a good employee discount.
