Wish Upon a Star – Becoming a Disney Princess

Every girl has dreamt of becoming a Disney princess. Yet, magical childhood dreams of becoming Cinderella, Aurora, Belle, or Snow White can come true…well, sort of. You can audition to become a “princess” at the wonderful world(s) of Disney (Disneyland, Disney World, Disney Cruise Line, Disney Paris, and Tokyo Disney).

E-how.com – How to become a Disney Princess:

  1. Check Disney’s pre-audition requirements to see if you qualify. Women must be age 16 or over, authorized to work in the United States, and stand between 5 foot 3 and 5 foot 7 inches tall. Performers in the Walt Disney World College Program cast members and anyone already playing a character are not eligible to audition.
  2. Watch the Disney films with princesses and note the appearance, mannerisms and voice of any princess you’d like to portray. Walt Disney World has roles for Cinderella, Snow White, Belle, Ariel, Aurora, Tiana, Pocahontas and Mulan.
  3. Check the audition calendar on Disney’s official website. Auditions are held regularly but not at any established time. Princess auditions are listed under either “Disney Princess Look-Alikes” or “Character Look-Alikes.”
  • A background in theatre or acting is preferred, since cast members must convincingly portray their princess not only in appearance, but also in manner and voice.
  • Arrive early to the audition with resume and head shot. Disney recommends all princess candidates dress comfortably for the audition. Disney may ask all of the hopefuls to learn a short movement routine as part of the audition process.
Sadly, unless Disney comes out with a new extremely tall, pale, and freckle-faced princess, my only chance of becoming a princess is to marry Prince Harry…
