ok mw family I need your suggestions on this.. if you had a chance to work at a Disney resort .. but live 45 mins would you do it.. mind this it will be only part time .. my heart says yes but my brain says are u crazy that's a lot of gas .. so I'm torn.. !!!

Sorry , but I would do it !!! May be part time now but who knows what's in the future! Besides , it's Disney !!!!! - skcanfield  563.2 #15 1:39PM
Yes esp for polynesian! Maybe a bus or carpool? - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #71 1:41PM
I would also go for it! - ncjal  288.4 #28 1:43PM
Would depend on how many days.  I just hate driving so far to work.  So for a few days a week, yes.  For 4 or say 6 no way.  But I would drive that far frequently for visits, no problem!! - DizneyGirl  935.3 #8 1:43PM
It's 4 days max ... My hubby thinks I'm crazy .. but hey you only live once .. I've submitted my app. So well see .. I'm happy to work any where ..but I don't do Windows .haha - Disneymom36  62.4 #96 1:50PM
That wouldn't be so bad. Good luck, hope you get it ! - DizneyGirl  935.3 #8 2:54PM
what would you be doing? - ncjal  288.4 #28 2:04PM
My commute is about 30-40 minutes and I know a lot of people whose commutes are much longer every day. If you are not taking the job for the money, it might be a really fun part time gig! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.0 #3 2:19PM
It would really depend ,gas is so expensive,I personally hate driving but I live in ny so wherever I go I sit in traffic so I can't really look at it the same 45 min for me would probably take up to a couple hrs or so but if its something you truly want then go for it,best of luck:) - tracsant  1477.7 #2 2:22PM
Are u gonna b working as a server in a restaraunt? If so u're tips are probably worth it. I like having a bit of a commute. It gives u time to unwind after work - ready4vacation  8.8 #11947 3:10PM
Well I just applied for server and frontdesk at any resort.. I've done both.. since all the kids will be in school I thought it was time for me to finally do something I always wanted to do .. do they have good health benefits that's a plus.. - Disneymom36  62.4 #96 4:08PM
I commute that far every day! - felinefrenzy  15.2 #200 4:09PM
Keep in mind how hard jobs are to come by right now if you turn this down how long will it be before something comes up again. Just use that 45 min to relax and unwind. After all how many times will you have a chance to work for Disney and remember just cause they say part time doesn't always mean part time you could be doing 40 hours a week in no time I say go for it at least give it a chance and see how it works out - cowboygoofy  219.0 #1742 4:09PM
I commute the same amount of time. You get used to it. And although part time it could lead to more. Good luck! - goofygal  11003.8 #7 4:38PM
My hubby drives that long everyday. It depends on if its an easy drive or a traffic filled ride. Good luck!! - Ariel42  262.9 #32 8:42PM
I would do it! You get to be surrounded by disney and get paid for it! Doesn't get much better - Disneyaddict  374.7 #605 9:35PM
I would so do it that's what we drive everyday just to go to a store. So if its Disney that would be 10 times better :) - mymosas  9.8 #256 10:56PM
Good luck! I think it would depend what job they were offering me. - justGoofin  161.8 #56 6:35AM
Why don't you try it and see if it's for you? Maybe it will be worth the drive! If not, you can always try something else. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #21 6:41AM
Do it!! We just moved here and I have an hour drive for a job I don't love I would happily drive 45 mins to work at Disney!! - jkigos  15.1 #202 7:11AM
I would if I could!!! - DisneyLisa78  44.5 #113 7:34AM
