They could make double that, easy, by wearing the costumes and make-up and charging for sex.

My niece and two of her friends just went through the audition process for characters at Disney World.  So I am getting a kick out of this.
One got offered a job as parade Tinkerbell for $12.00 per hour

I don't know if it's still the case, but you also used to have to re-audition for your job every year.

So in other words being an actor performing a specific character accurately is work with many responsibilities. And the people who own that character demand the highest possible standards in it being portrayed the way they see fit.  Thanks Daily Mail!

Can you imagine the money they could make from the bored dad demographic alone?

"Hey sweetie, why don't you and the kids cool off and see a show.  I'll go buy them some souvenirs.  Meet you here in an hour."

Double? At $16 an hour they pull in about $128 a day, figure in taxes they make about $100 a day.  Compare that to the 200-300 an hour they would get for selling it, multiplied by say 4 a day, that's $800-1200 a day.

Damn I wish I was a Disney Princess Whore

Disney is a big evil company, sure. I get that. Personally I would be amused as hell to see a grey haired, wrinkled, chain smoking, 50 year old cocktail waitress as Snow White, but I don't think that's really what the children want.

Dammit, you don't understand.  Once something has been posted to the Internet in one location, it is an abomination in the eyes of God for that to then be posted ANYWHERE ELSE.  Especially if it gets posted more than a day or two afterward, 'cause by then it's OLD.

Being kicked out at 27 isn't sad, it's expected.  You can't be an old MILFy princess, nature of the job.  The pay is really sad.  Friends just went to Disney, did the breakfast with the princesses, they paid through the nose.  Those ladies earn a lot for Disney, they should make a lot more.

I'm not at all fond of the 'never sit' attitudes of some employers.  It's unhealthy after a while, just for the appearance of keeping busy.

Tat'dGreaser: I love these "woe is me" stories


I didn't see any complaining there, just an accurate description of the work.

We took the kids to Disneyland 6 years ago, and the actors and actresses were easily one of the highlights of the trip.  I could appreciate how hard their job must really be, and I really appreciated how on-the-game they all were and how they made the trip really magical for the kids (ages 5 and 10 at the time).  I don't know what they were thinking inside, and that's the whole point - on the outside they appeared to be as happy as clams, and they treated my kids like they were the first kids they'd seen all day.  The professionalism was phenomenal.  They may not get paid much, but I'm betting it's a pretty sweet entry on their resume - anyone who knows how hard and how well these people work also knows what it takes to maintain a job like that.  In all seriousness, I could not do it.

Are you suggesting hired employees deserve some sort of profit sharing?

I have a relative that works at Disney in a management position. He was taking us through Disney World and I tried to talk to him about the operations of Disney. I was impressed with how thorough everything had been thought through. I was very clear, however, that the first rule of Disney operations is that you don't talk about Disney operations. It is possible that he just didn't want to talk about it while around other Disney guests.

In fact, sitting for extended periods of time can counteract the positive effects of exercise.

This seems like a great example of the difference between a job and a career.  And maybe something about learning you can't always expect to get by on looks alone.

i did a backstage tour last year, and any questions that had to with operations were ignored completely till you went back stage, the underground tunnels were hella cool, lots of awesome memorabilia

When I was still a smoker, I took my little girl to Disney World for a week.  When I was dying for a smoke, I had tried to find a spot where I would not be drawn and quartered for smoking.  I went to this secluded area beside Cinderella's castle where I smelled someone else was smoking.  When I found the ashtray, who was next to it puffing away?  Why none other than Snow White.  I have a feeling she wasn't in that job very long, because I don't think they're ever supposed to break character, and I am pretty sure that the real Snow White was a non-smoker.

Better than destroying your feet, and ability to walk.

Granted, I've always been flatfooted, so it bothers me more than usual.

I remember watching David Letterman about 20 years ago or so and there was an actress who said she wore a character costume at Disney World. Not a princess, but like Goofy or some other character (Chip? Dale?) where people couldn't see who it really was.

She said her first day, she posed for pictures with people, but it took her half a day to realize that she didn't need to smile when posing for pictures because nobody could see her face anyway. At that point, she started having fun inside the mask - sticking out her tongue or whatever. Made her day a lot more enjoyable.

Just came off a Disney cruise and like everyone else, all the Princesses also had "extra" jobs on the ship...most of them I noticed worked in the nursery or in the Kids Club...but one of them (Snow White) worked in the Coffee/Booze bar in the Adult section...it was morning, so I only ordered an Americano...but I was very tempted to order a Harvey Wallbanger or something just so I could say Snow White served me a Sex on the Beach.

If she was smart, she took advantage of Disney's Tuition Assistance program, which is pretty good.  My cousin is an RN, studying to become a Nurse Practioner.  She works at one of the Disney parks.  They pay up to $700 per credit, plus 100% of your books and lab fees.  And that isn't just for the skilled staff, it's for anyone.  She could make more than Disney is paying her, but she is pretty much getting her tuition paid for, and she says the medical area is a way more relaxed atmosphere than any hospital or nursing home, which is where most of her friends are working.

Three years ago I was at Disneyland just after the park opened.  I took a seat on a bench near the Carnation Cafe to await the arrival of the rest of my party.  Mary Poppins (or rather the person portraying her) walks up, and in character delivers some throw away line about me being alone.  Sweet mother of your deity of choice...she was smoking hot.

I worked at Disney during college and banged the girl who played Ariel.

Boy, was she a freak. She was exceptionally cool, however, as a lot of them were a bit snobby.

A lot of guys who work there, especially in that department, are super gay. Being straight and relatively good looking at Disney means you have a revolving door of cute girls.
