  • Can you tell us a little more about your experience?

I had just finished my studies when I decided to apply for the Casting Tour in Athens in 2015. I heard about it through a friend who had seen an article in the newspaper, and who told me it was a great place to work. So, I tried my luck and was given a temporary contract for a Food & Beverage Employee position in a kitchen on Main Street. Then, I stayed on with a 4-month summer contract, and came back for 4 more weeks over the Christmas holidays. I was very motivated to continue working at Disneyland Paris—and it showed! That’s how I finally was offered a permanent contract.

  • What is your current job and what do you like most about it?

Today I work as a Porter at the Disneyland Hotel. My work consists in handling luggage for guests, carrying it up to their rooms when they arrive, or placing their bags in the luggage room when they check out.  We work closely with the valets, because our goal is to offer an unforgettable experience to guests as soon as they arrive at the hotel. That way, they can take full advantage of their vacation. My role also includes greeting and informing guests who pass by the luggage room, when they ask questions about the Parks or hotel, we do our best to answer them. What I like most about my job is interacting with guests who come from all over the world. I am really happy working at Disneyland Paris: there is a great ambiance here!                                                                                  

  • Why did you want to join Disneyland Paris?                                        

My mother was a French teacher and had taken me many times to visit Paris, a city I love. What I like most at Disneyland Paris is the organization: the company does everything it can to simplify our life at work (nametags, costumes, dry cleaning, the balance between personal and working life, respecting scheduled hours). Plus, there are opportunities to move from one job to another. In Marne-la-Vallée we are near Paris, but I also like the fact that it is calmer out here, and we enjoy excellent living conditions.

  • What is your best memory as a Cast Member?

This hotel lobby has a very high ceiling. One day, a little boy had let go of his balloon and it floated up to the ceiling and burst. He was heartbroken! Straight away, I rushed off to get another balloon from the boutique. When I brought him the balloon, he got his smile back!
