Walt Disney World's most popular attraction these days is its employment office, where the tourist giant will be hiring up to 4,000 workers a year over the next few years.

The employment drive begins next week with a goal of 2,300 new workers by the end of the month to begin staffing $1.5 billion in expanded attractions at the Lake Buena Vista, Fla., park.Disney has a new, highly visible employment office, or "Casting Center," to help attract workers in what is considered a tight job market for entry-level, tourism-hotel-restaurant workers in the area.

The $10 million center resembles a Venetian Castle with Disney touches. Mickey Mouse ears adorn its crenelated top and a rotunda forming the entryway sports 13 golden-colored Disney characters.
