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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
 
2013-04-11 10:12:14 AM
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.

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.

Disney princesses go through a tough selection process and their careers are over before they become 27

Playing a Disney character should not be a career aspiration. Disney is doing them a favor by giving them walking papers when they turn 27.

I am 28 and work at a high school. The school is split into three separate buildings. I have been stopped by staff in the other two buildings because they thought I was a senior trying to skip class.

I have an acquaintance who worked as a Disney park princess - at Tokyo Disney. Unfortunately for her, she was one of their most scantily clad ones; Jasmine from Aladdin. She said she loved working with the kids, but half the time she'd get Japanese businessmen who would get all excited and come running up for photos, exclaiming "JAZZZA-MIIIIN!!!" Of course when taking photos, they nuzzled their faces up to her chest and gave peace signs.

Kinda like this, but with roles reversed.

And Reddit being a higher-traffic site is relevant because...?  It's still largely populated by emotionally stunted man-children who feign ignorance and indignation whenever anyone calls them out on their misogyny, racism, or stupidity.  Though, admittedly, 4chan folks are much less likely to go to other sites and biatch/brag about how something was on 4chan first.

tricycleracer: Those lucky enough to be selected are expected to remain in character at all time

At all time?  Giggity.



Never thought of making her put on her costume and role playing at the time.  Giggity indeed.

Another wasted opportunity in my youth.   Thought those heady days would last forever.  They don't.

Alphakronik: GalFriday: 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

Funny, I used to have a friend who did the princesses makeup.  Made just over $30.


According to these girls, they have "parade" characters and regular walk around characters.  So, if her friend took the job that was offered, she would only be in parades and only out in the park when the real Tinkerbell was sick.
Not sure. The girl didn't take the job because her friends weren't offered a job and the plan was that they would all be princesses together.
I know, I know, but they are 18 and this is how they wanted to spend their year between high school and college.

Not yet.
Once she appears in a Disney production, then she's fair game.

We have to have some rules moving forward.

Yep.

But never mind that. Disney bad!

My stepdaughter's favorite disney character was Ariel.  So of course we had to see her when I took the family to Disneyland.  The kid's comment after getting her picture, "Ariel is fat".

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.

2013-04-11 06:21:58 PM
I've been to Disneyland in Anaheim a couple of times and the kids doing the roles are one of the best things about the joint. I watched an "Ariel" sitting out in the pouring rain in February talking to a little girl in Wellies and lobsterman's gear. That little girl was glowing with the attention. It was like the best day ever for her. I emailed Disney management and insisted they give Ariel a raise.

That said, it's a good job for a college student. I can't see someone making a career out of it.

The Walt Disney Company currently has a trademark application pending with the US Patent and Trademark Office, filed November 19, 2008, for the name "Snow White" that would cover all live and recorded movie, television, radio, stage, computer, Internet, news, and photographic entertainment uses, except literature works of fiction and nonfiction

How do you get a trademark for a character that's been public domain for 100+ years?

This is the shiat that Disney is an expert in doing.  They have an army of lawyers who do nothing but claim ownership of public domain stories and characters.  The copyright extension?  That should have been called "The Disney Act".  The major lobbiest (briber) was disney because their oldest works were at or near the end of copyright life.

Disney Plan of Evil

1. Claim ownership of public domain stories.
2. Extend copyright on their now owned public domain stories to effectively "forever".
3. Profit, biatch.

I have tried to talk my 20 year old 1st cousin into going down to disneyworld and working a year or two.  The kid is incredibly straight (manwh*rish) and is a good dancer and actor.  I told him he could have his pick of the girls there because the vast majority of the guy workers we have seen on trips down there were gay.

Pocohontas at the animal kingdom was the hottest one I saw on our trips.  She was obviously a hispanic pocohontas which was right up my alley.

Yeah, Disney is probably more responsible for getting the length of copyrights extended out to ridiculous lengths of time, well beyond what they were ever intended to be.

No surprise there.  Disney sees all employees as easily replaceable commodities.  They have no loyalty for the people who work for them, so they deserve no loyalty in return.

ALL the characters will have unprecedented abilities to retain information and communicate well with the guests. That's about all I can say. But it's pretty cool stuff.


But most importantly Disney (like any successful company) places huge value on the employees who are the literally the FACE of the product. The notion these people are treated like galley slaves during this "carreer" only to be retired by Walt's ghost in a Sandman costume when they turn 27 is ludicrous.

That's some awesome corporate babble you've got going on there.  If you say it enough times, I'm sure even you start believing it.  Look, no one wants to see a 45 year Jasmine with underarm flab waving at them so let's just say it's a safe assumption that those "faces of the product" pretty much have to call it quits sometime in their 20's, talented or no.  Doesn't mean Disney is running an antebellum plantation but nobody is going to make a career out of being a Disney princess.

While I am entirely unsure what you are saying in this post that contradicts mine I am happy to discuss it further. Just please understand my ability to comment on certain things is somewhat limited. I have spent the past four years visiting every Disney property on Earth and in meetings with the top brass to address this very situation. People get twitchy when you violate NDA's.
