Wow.... by the time I retire... Disneyland will be nearly 90 years old!! Who knows what attractions and such will be around when we reach that time. But if I had to choose something now, I'd wan to operate the monorail. I get to sit all day in an air conditioned cab, enjoy the sights, sounds and smells. And every once in a while entertain a child that sits with me in awe as I use to when I was his age. :)

Hmmm....well, I really don't want to think of myself as being old, but I think my retirement dream job would be something similar to what the Dream Team has done this year and last - granting dreams and such. I also think it would be fun to be a server at one of the restaurants.

I'd enjoy working anywhere except maybe for food service. Worked 14 years in the food business starting in college and really don't want to go back to it again!

A ride operator. Preferably on Splash Mountain (which is what I did as a CP and LOVED it!), Test Track, Tower of Terror, Soarin', or Mission: Space. I like the complicated ride systems. :)

I wouldn't mind being a motor launch pilot, a monorail pilot or even a photopass photographer!

I'd love to be a face character-- namely a Princess.

Of course by the time I'm retirement age, I'd be way too old for that position. But, anyway. :lol:

I'd run Soarin' and The Haunted Mansion.... yes, those two would be under my sole control and would not be allowed to be altered or removed. :wink:

I'd want to be a photopass photographer. I think that would be great or maybe a character handler.

My dream job would be to work at the Animal Kingdom, my background is in Zoology so I would love that. However for retirement I think I would love to work on Main Street and be able to bring the magic to people as they enter the park!!!

Wow, in that case instead of boat captain I want to either be a transporter operator (beaming guests around the resort) or a jet pack courier (delivering your park purchases to your resort room in a single bound.)
No one's gloomy or complaining while the flatware's entertaining.

Both my wife and I did theater back in college. In fact, that's where we met. We both want to retire to WDW when we get older. I'd like to do something that requires me to "get into character."

I've often said, my dream job would be to be the Mayor of Main Street, U.S.A.

Others include:
-- Haunted Mansion
-- Tower of Terror
-- Safari Driver

Nice topic!
