    For the Asian Disneylands, if you're not already a princess at one of the parks, your chances are very very slim of even being considered. Even though the auditions are technically "open," 90% of the girls that make it over there already worked for WDW or DLR as princesses. It's tough. I think that they don't like taking chances on newbies when the contract is so short (6-9 months). It's easier for them to just grab up the veterens.

    I don't mean to burst anybody's bubble, but that's how it seems to be. However, there's ALWAYS a chance and it's still fun to try... but it's also important to keep those facts in mind if you don't get the part.

    This is what makes the first cut so frustrating. There is pretty much nothing at all that you can do to improve your chances of passing. All you can do is hope they physically see in you what they're looking for.
    Yes, competition is FIERCE in L.A.

    I have to disagree, though, about the idea that you have to be gorgeous to make the cut. I've seen dozens of princess photos from DLR walk-arounds and parades, and to be honest.. I think many of the girls that actually get the part are pretty average looking if you take away the costume/wig/make-up (some are still average looking in costume). Obviously, some of the girls are naturally stunning, but still. I don't think there are specified rules.. it's all completely subjective. Even model-like girls get cut. So if you don't make it.. it doesn't mean that you're funny looking. I think it's mostly luck.

    I have noticed one thing about the princesses though. A majority are naturally fair skinned or blonde. They tend to have light eyes, and fair-colored eyebrows (I assume that the fair eyebrows give more flexibility because make-up can make them fit several diff. characters). Also, they seem to have big smiles, big teeth, and big lips.

    Obviously, the above isn't a rule for everyone, but I would say that at least 75% of the girls who are cast fit that description. BUT, like I said before, there's ALWAYS a chance you'll make it, so it really never hurts to try.. as long as you go in with the right mind-set (i.e. it's not the end of the world if you don't make it.). I'll probably try a few more times myself!

    It's less about growing a tougher skin and more about proper job ettiquite.

    Why would you want to work for somebody who treats you as if your time and energy doesn't matter?

    In addition, there were other rude and inconsiderate things done as well. As I said, long story.

    He's been doing theater for 15+ years. He knows how auditions go. When we audtioned, we were coming off a national touring show. No, he doesn't need a tougher skin. He's already got one. Disney needed to treat him as if his time was important and as if he was a human being.

    It's one thing to wait for hours in a cattle call. It's another thing to show up for the THIRD TIME, and then be told to go away by a security guard who doesn't know anything for a seven dollar an hour job.

    I'm 5'2". From what I was told, for atomsphere, it's Alice, and that's it. If I'm wrong, someone can correct me.

    Wendy isn't really walking around the parks. She's in Fantasmic, which is a seperate audition.

    Us shorty's have a better chance with the fuzzies. A lot of them need to be our height.
