Looking for a career change? Disneyland are hiring Princesses and Princes here in the UK!

Disney princess

If you want a job that will fit around the school run, this might not be the one for you, but if you’ve always dreamt of being a Disney princess, we’ve got great news for you.

Life really would be a fairy-tale as a Disney princess and if you fancy yourself as the next Esmerelda, Ariel or Elsa, we’ve got the job for you. Disneyland Paris is coming to the UK and are currently on the hunt to find people to play prince and princess characters in the parade, as well as dancers.

The job advert reads: ‘We are looking for enthusiastic and energetic people to animate the famous Disney characters. If you have a good level of dance, you can participate in our parade and our cavalcades!’

‘We are also looking for people who look like our famous Princesses and Princes to meet our visitors on a daily basis. A good level of dance and distinctive criteria of resemblance are required.’

For those of us on the tall size, it’s not great news as the advertisement states that as well as looking like a prince or princess, you also have to be between 137cm and 193cm tall (that’s 4 foot 5 and 6 foot 3).

If you are serious about being a Princess you can apply here. Get ready to scrub your make-up off for the audition (just so they can see how Elsa-like you really are) and pack a pair of jogging bottoms and sport shoes!
