  • “As a Disneyland Stormtrooper you will have to demonstrate high energy levels, a full range of body movement, and imaginative improvisation, all while working in a full-body costume,” CNET reports.
  • You will need to work Friday nights, weekends, holidays and during peak operating season.
  • You must be authorized to work in the United States.
  • Performers must be 18 years old or a high school student graduating in 2019.
