Princesses are usually 5'4''-5'7'', Fairies and Alice or Wendy are all 4'11''-5'2''. Most girls are between 18 and 23, and a few of the girls who have been there awhile are Rarely is a girl over 27 who does princesses or fairies. Training takes five days — mostly they just want you to study the film intensely.
I can quote the movie from start to finish from memory. Putting the entire thing together took about an hour. Putting the dress itself on took minutes. Our make-up was made to match the colors in the films which was neat, I still have tons of red lipstick.

We started with make-up, then wig, then costuming. Pretty standard. All day long you have to make adjustments and do touch ups, especially after lunch.
Though I think it might be different now. Disney does not do large raises, only about 15 cents a year. It's a good part time job for sure because of the pay, but when you are still making the same thing at year three it doesn't exactly motivate you to work harder.

Review: the revamped snow white’s enchanted wish dark ride now feels fresh and current while still retaining the reverence due an opening day disneyland classic.
He would always bring me pictures of his Snow White memorabilia and try to kiss me. He quickly realized that at the time I was the only girl with brown eyes and that must mean that I was the true Snow White. So one day I had Saturday off and he met Snow White, but she happened to have blue eyes. Well, the next time I showed up for work he was pissed.
He told me that he was going to kill all the girls with blue eyes and that when he died we'd be together. I totally freaked out and had to report him to security. He had his annual pass revoked. An adorable little girl named Jane with three months to live came to visit for Make A Wish.

There's lots of rules. It's why people get so frustrated working there — you're always worried about getting in trouble.
Social media is a big problem there, we weren't allowed to post or talk about the things we did as a character, or even to tell people what character we were.

Being a princess is a lot like being in a sorority: We still get together and see each other.
They are by far the most beautiful friends I have. Most of the princesses were viewed like Mean Girls. It creates a bit of a stigma which I fought lo of times.
When the weather reached 90, 95, or they would adjust our sets and let us take some time off so we could recoup. Finding a solution to guest problems is a one priority. I couldn't flat out refuse autographs or pictures or answering questions.
Some days are not fun Christmas, Mid-Summer, etc.
