For seasonal at Disney it all depends on the dept./area. Some are 40 hours a year, some are 80, some are two set days a month, etc. Usually you have to be full or part time first and then see if management will let you go to seasonal in your area. They even used to keep a lot of college program kids as seasonal after their program was up, but they really cracked down on a lot of them when lay-offs happened last year.

I have a friend who is a security guard at Disney, considered seasonal although he probably works close to 1000 hours a year. He gets into the parks free and a few other perks.

I have been a seasonal cast member at Disney since 2007. I was part time for a little over a year before going seasonal. I work in attractions and we are suppose to work 40 hours every six months. I usually work a 6 hour shift about once a month. That is for attractions in specific area I work and the requirements for seasonal does vary for every department. You would most likely have to be part time first and the requirements for part time is that you must have at least 2 full days of availability per week. It is definitely worth it though for all the perks! Good Luck!
