Disney Hiring Friendship Boat Operators. For those of us who love the Port Orleans Resorts at Walt Disney World Resort area, we are anxiously awaiting the reopening of Riverside and the French Quarter. Now, things are starting to feel more and more like they are about to get back to normal operations as the resort is scheduled to reopen shortly, with the search for Friendship Boat Operators.

These boats are the ones that travel the Sassagoula River back and forth to DIsney Springs and in between Resorts.

Watercraft and Friendship/Sassagoula Cast Members are focused on the safety of our guests while creating a magical experience throughout their stay. Watercraft Cast Members are responsible for engaging Guests, loading and unloading the watercraft vessels while piloting a fleet of multi-passenger boats of different sizes and lengths. Watercraft Cast Members will provide narration of varying lengths in front of large groups and provide audience control in various weather conditions
