Job Summary:

Your job? To make the fun and keep it coming! As a part-time Lifeguard/Recreation Host/Hostess at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, you are the person our Guests turn to when they want to try their hand at water sports, have a sing-along campfire, do arts and crafts, play rainy-day games or just chill by the ocean under one of our beach cabanas. Of course, safety, lifesaving and first-responder duties are paramount, but you will also play games with little ones, help set up equipment rentals, and so much more.

The key to success in this job is having an authentically friendly demeanor, an unshakably positive attitude and the sincere desire to help and protect others. If you want a job with tremendous variety, a weekly paycheck and access to opportunities that only The Walt Disney Company can supply, please apply today!


One day you might focus on lifeguard duties around the pool, the next might be rainy day activities for kids of all ages, and the next might be tending to Guests who prefer the beach. But no matter what the activity, our Lifeguards/Recreation Hosts/Hostesses are always helpful and genuinely friendly. That’s the Disney Difference that keeps Guests coming back to Disney’s Vero Beach Resort year after year.

Every day as a Lifeguard/Recreation Host/Hostess is different! On any given day, you might:

  • Use your lifeguard and first responder know-how to keep our Guests safe in the pool
  • Answer Guest questions about the resort and the Vero Beach area
  • Keep the pool deck tidy, help with towel rentals, and assist Guests however possible
  • Lead supervised children’s activities like arts-and-crafts, storytelling, races and contests
  • While you would lifeguard at the pool only, you would distribute towels and help set-up/break-down lounge chairs, rent cabanas and body boards on our beautiful beach
  • Take the initiative to make a Guest’s dreams come true – our Lifeguards/Recreation Host/Hostesses are empowered to go the extra mile to make Disney magic
  • Interact with Guests on a daily basis – since this is a Disney Vacation Club property, you will get to know “regular” Guests, and they will get to know you
  • Talk with your leaders about your career, including promotion within your department or to other part time/full time jobs throughout The Walt Disney Company
  • Take advantage of educational opportunities – Disney Aspire pays 100% of your tuition no matter what degree you select, even if you are working part-time
  • Enjoy the benefits of working for The Walt Disney Company, including free Park entrance, the Disney Aspire educational program, weekly pay, generous perks, and discounts on things you really use.

Basic Qualifications:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age
  • Hold a valid US driver’s license
  • Have (or be willing and able to pass) US Lifeguard and First Responder certifications, which includes:
    • Pass a swim test: swim 200 yards without resting, tread water without using your hands for two minutes, and retrieve a 10-pound brick from a depth of 5 feet.
    • Pass a vision screening (corrected or uncorrected) with at least 20/25 vision
  • Focus to observe all sections of an assigned zone or area of responsibility
  • Heavy lifting and working with chemicals
  • Physical ability to work outdoors, in all types of weather
  • This role is part-time and requires full availability for any shift, including nights, a minimum of 3 days per week (one of which must be a weekend day). Must be fully available for any shift on state/national holidays.

Preferred Qualifications:

It would be great if you:
  • Spoke a language other than English
  • Had previous Lifeguarding experience
  • Full availability for any shift seven (7) days per week, including nights, weekends and all holidays
