Disney Gives Out "Dream Jobs"

GhostGirl sent me this delicious link to a Disney article in which people get to live out their "dream jobs" as Disney employees. I'm sorry, I meant "Honorary Disney Cast Members":

The "Honorary Disney Cast Members," enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime weekend at Disneyland Resort with costume fittings and hair and make-up to help them look the part, a class in "Disney Traditions" training, rehearsals, participating in interviews with media from around the country and on-the-job training that included learning the perfect curtsey, or tips on getting giggles from the crowd as a Jungle Cruise Skipper.

What's missing from this Disney experience as staff? The struggle to survive on what Disney pays.

As I've mentioned Disney actively campaigns against low-income housing, many units of which are for its employees.
