Disneyland is "the happiest place on earth," and the minute you step through the front gate's turnstiles, you're transported into a magical kingdom full of dreams and adventures. While it's definitely a fairy tale experience for ticket holders, what is it like for the employees that work there day in and day out, and sometimes for years? For many seasoned cast members, it's always a treat making people smile every single day. But for others, the grind makes Disneyland feel like any other work environment — which is full of its fair share of gossip, romances, and insider knowledge.
