If you’re a Disney fanatic, you’re going to LOVE today’s work-at-home job leads and at-home business opportunities!
Let's jump right in.
Disney Work-at-Home Job Leads.
The Disney Store retail chain periodically hires remote, Guest Support Reps in Florida, South Carolina, Texas, Kentucky, Nevada, Illinois, Mississippi and British Columbia. In this role, you'll provide customer service assistance to DisneyStore guests. To search for this position, go to the Disney Job Board and search this term: Guest Support Representative (Remote).
In this role, you'll be working in collaboration with Disney's recruitment team to share what it's like to work at Disney by showcasing their culture, work environment, and career opportunities on their social media channels and blogs. Must have a Bachelor’s degree in Communications, Public Relations, Journalism, or English and at least three years of experience.
Honestly, finding a work-at-home job on Disney's job board is a little tricky. When you type in keywords: work from home or remote, all too often, it pulls up listings that are irrelevant. A better place to search is FlexJobs. Not only do they have a whole Disney category, but they're also clearly marked as part-time, freelance, temporary, seasonal, or telecommuting — which makes your search so much easier!
Disney Travel Consultants.
There are lots of Authorized Disney Vacation Planners, who offer work-at-home business opportunities selling Disney Travel. These companies are registered Disney Travel Agents, who screen individuals on their Disney experience and knowledge. According to this thread, if you're deemed a Disney expert and hired on, you will book Disney vacations under their International Air Transport Association (IATA) number and be paid a percentage of the sale.
Some of these companies require a small startup fee and ongoing membership fees; others do not. The best thing about these opportunities is, you don't need to be a travel agent to get started. The one thing you will need to have is an extensive Disney travel background; most of these agencies require at least eight visits to a Walt Disney World Resort.
To find the opportunities on each site, look for the “Join Us” or “Join Our Team” tab.
Please note: I have NOT researched these agencies, so make sure to do your due diligence and research each company extensively before applying.

Write for Disney.
Babble is a parenting blog that launched in 2006. Within one year the website grew to half a million readers per month. In 2011, Disney bought the blog and now pays writers to contribute content on the following topics: Mom, Pregnancy, Baby, Toddler, Kid, Body + Mind, Work + Money, Home, Relationships, Entertainment, Beauty, Food, or Travel. According to this article, Babble pays $150 for an 800-1,200 word piece.
Theme Park Disney is a Disney-related blog that publishes information about Disney theme parks around the globe. Theme Park Disney pays $40 for a 1,000-1,500 word piece.
Blog About Disney.
The last way you can combine your love of Disney and your work is to start a Disney-related blog. The reason I say Disney-related is, Disney is a registered trademark, so you'll want to be sure that you're not using the Disney name or intellectual properties in your blog title/business name or URL (If you noticed, none of the Authorized Disney Vacation Planners use the Disney name as their business or website name).
WDW News Today is a good example of a Disney-related blog.
Before you set up your blog, you'll want to think about what topics and areas you're going to cover. Is it Disney movies and characters? Is it traveling with small children at Disney parks? Is it how to do Disney on a budget? Once you nail down your niche, you can choose a domain name and set up your blog.
Now, don't worry. Starting a blog is easy and affordable. In fact, I have a step-by-step tutorial on how to launch a blog in a few easy steps for just $3.95 a month!
Once you have your blog in place, you're ready to start writing and monetizing. Bloggers make their money in a multitude of ways from direct ad sales, affiliate marketing, working with ad networks, to corporate sponsorships, brand ambassadorships, sponsored blog posts, and more. How much you earn as a blogger will depend greatly on your determination, mindset, and ability to hustle.
A simple way to start monetizing is through FlexOffers' affiliate program. They have relationships with the Disney Store, the Disney Movie Club, CR Exclusive-Disneyland and Disneyworld Tickets, and Disney Online – Club Penguin.
If you're interested in working with Disney through sponsored content and brand ambassadorships, I suggest connecting with them on Twitter.
