New Role! Vacation Planning

Tomorrow I start training for my new part time role in Vacation Planning!

Several months ago I applied to a posting on the MyDisneyCareer site, it remained in progress for a very long time and finally at the end of July I was invited to do an interview. I made it through the interview process and was placed on the transfer list. About two weeks later I was called and was told I would be transferring to part time VP at the Ticket and Transportation Center (TTC) This is the location for Magic Kingdom.

I am still on a waiting list for Full Time in this new role. I am very excited to start this new role and share it with you. If you do not know what this is, Vacation Planners are those you see in the ticket booths outside the park. It will be my job to assist guests in purchasing the ticket combinations that can help them get the most out of their vacations!

Tomorrow I have "Once Upon a Time is Now" the property orientation for Magic Kingdom. After this I will have done property orientation at all of the parks and Downtown Disney.

Next will be 5 days of Vacation Planner Core training at Disney University. I am wondering what we will be covering in those 5 days. Guest Relations only had 2 days of ticketing training, so I assume it encompasses other information about the role.


  1. Hey! I'm not sure if you remember me posting on your profile, but I did my CP back in 2012 in Merchandise at the Polynesian. Anyways, I just saw this post and well, I finally decided to come back to work for Disney as well! I applied back in May and was supposed to come down in June for my new role, but I wasn't able to because of a prior obligation. I was able to come back down July 10th and I'm actually a PT VP at Epcot and I love it! I have picked up a few shifts at the TTC and I'm between Epcot/MK for my FT hopes since I like it at both places. Welcome to the VP family! :)

    1. Thanks! So far I've only done training at DU but I think I'm really going to like it!
