While it varies person by person, a dream job is usually one that is rare, fulfilling, and most importantly, fun. We’ve seen everything from getting paid to get the royal treatment to cashing in by binge-watching TV, but this one might top all the rest—an occupation that will pay you to go to Disney World, among other theme parks in Florida—and ride the attractions, eat the food, rate everything, and essentially be happy.

Travel company Ocean Florida is seeking one lucky person who’s willing to go to Florida and visit Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and other theme parks and rate their experiences. The winner will be deemed as the official Florida Theme Park Tester and spend three weeks park hopping and reviewing as they go.

The tester will be rating the rides (based on thrill factor, show, and display), but they will also be evaluating the following: quality and variety of food and drink, souvenirs and brand merchandise, suitability for families and couples, parades, photo ops, and overall experience. While it does sound like fun, doing it for three weeks straight will probably be exhausting—but of course we would do it in a heartbeat.

In addition to park admission, the company will also cover accommodations as well as provide a daily budget, a GoPro to capture content, a Fitbit to count steps and heart beats during activities, and fast passes to have access to unlimited rides. They’ll also receive £3,000 (which is equivalent to almost $4,000) for their efforts. Oh, and did we mention you’ll be able to bring a plus one? It’s basically a paid vacation.

The biggest requirements for the right candidate is to be social media savvy and able to capture solid content as they go, which involves keeping a daily video log of all their experiences. They’re also expected to share content on their Instagram accounts and possibly take over Ocean Florida’s account as well.

So if this sounds like a dream job to you, check out the company’s page where you can apply. There are a few tough questions, like which Disney character you would be and why? But if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be.
