A friend of mine is headed there this weekend to work as the Art Director for Fantasyland.  They are paying him a small fortune.

(Note carefully, that one of the postings below requires "Fluent Mandarin," and the other does not.)

Just an observation, I noticed that the posting for the Production Stage Manager does not have a listing of Basic Qualifications like the Stage Manager posting does.  I can't help but wonder if the posting is incomplete and it does turn out they want somebody who is fluent in Mandarin (though of course it can't hurt for somebody who is not fluent in Mandarin to apply, since right now that is not listed in the posting).

My understanding is it is indeed for one who speaks Mandarin and one who does not, but if anyone finds out otherwise, let me know.

I traded some emails with Miso - while the PSM job does not state bilingual with Mandarin as the SM posting does, their first preference will be to those who can speak the language. But if no ideal candidate found, then they'll look at monolingual English speakers.
SM'ing since God was a child.

Same with Baz-

After talking with Miso, he did specify that speaking Mandarin is pretty much mandatory even though it doesn't specify on the website
