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.
Work-at-Home Jobs for Disney Lovers:
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.
Other Remote Disney Jobs
Finding a work-at-home job on Disney’s job board can be 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 their jobs are clearly marked as part-time, freelance, temporary, seasonal, or telecommuting — which makes your search so much easier. Other remote jobs that I’ve seen Disney hire for are Engineers, Cruise Vacation Agents, Media Production Support Specialists, and Creative Managers.
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 About 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.
Babble’s submission guidelines used to be posted here, but now it is unclear how writers can pitch them. FlexJobs occasionally has Babble’s remote job openings, otherwise, you have to search the Disney career portal.
Cambrick Yard, LLC regularly hires freelance writers, editors, reporters, photographers, and YouTube presenters to cover Disney-related topics. To apply for these positions, send a writing sample and payment requirements to the email address located on their opportunity page.

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).
Carlye Wisel (mentioned above) 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 $2.95 a month — which is a special offer for readers of TWAHW!
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.
Here’s a list of Disney profiles to follow:

As you can see, there are lots of ways to incorporate your love of Disney into a work-at-home career. Just be sure that whatever route you take that you’re not infringing on their trademarks or copyrighted materials. If you have questions concerning these areas, definitely consult with an attorney.
