Best job in the world – you can get paid to ride Disney rollercoasters all day long

ROLLERCOASTER fans can find their dream job at Disney theme parks – which lets you ride them all day.

Known as Imagineers, the Disney creators are required to go on all of the attractions to try and improve them.

Imagineer vice president Jeanette Lomboy explained that it is part of their job as ride creators and designers to always know how the rides are working.

She told Insider: “Everywhere we have a theme park around the world, we have a group of Imagineers that are there to sustain our guest experience.

“Part of that is going on the attractions constantly to make sure that we continue to deliver that attraction just as it was on opening day.”

She revealed the lucky job as part of the new Disney+ series Behind the Attraction, which will reveal the best kept secrets of some of the most popular rides at the Disney theme parks.

Jeanette said that those employees also revisit attractions to help “make changes when it makes sense to make them.”

There is one downside though – to get the true experience, that also means you don’t get to jump the queue.

Imagineer Dave Durham added: “We visit the parks with our family and friends just like everyone else does. We stand in lines and look at all the details and enjoy the rides.

“We’re constantly experiencing the parks the same way everyone else does because that’s how we design them.”

While they didn’t explain how much you get paid being an Imagineer, according to Payscale.com, the average salary is $90,138 (£66,135).

However, Imagineers have a range of talents with jobs including designers, architects, illustrators, engineers and managers, so anyone with a skill could become one.

Disney’s Imagineers create everything inside the park, many of which guests may not even notice – for example, a specific colour is used to paint “undesirable” items such as fences and bins so they blend into the background.

There is also a secret lab used to create the menus and restaurants in the park.
