I arrived 10 minutes early for my 1pm appointment. The interior of the Casting Center lobby was absolutely beautiful, and I felt like I was inside the castle of the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. I found Suite 140 and walked down a long, narrow hallway with picture canvases of different Disney characters and attractions hanging on both walls.
I opened a set of doors with the sign “Onboarding” and walked into a large gray room filled with cubicles and desks. Although it looked like a corporate office, it felt more like a waiting room at a health clinic. There were about 10 other people there (in many different shapes and sizes) waiting to complete their onboarding appointment to be a Cast Member for Disney. Some of the Cast Member roles include guest services, retail sales clerk, costuming, vacation planner, custodian… the list goes on forever.
I walked to the front desk. The receptionist asked for my forms of identification. Make sure you have these!! This includes social security card, passport, birth certificate, driver’s license, etc. If you do not have the identification about they WILL turn you away and make you reschedule. I gave her my forms, and she said someone would be with me shortly.
