  2. My granddaughter worked for Disney World in Florida for over a year and has worked for Disneyland Paris for the past 14 months -- doing similar jobs. Her pay in France is the same as the other workers there, although her benefits are better than they were in the States. She still doesn't have a lot of money and shares a dorm-type room with a roommate.
