Once upon a time, I worked at the happiest place on Earth.
I had the time of my life dancing in parades down Main Street, making dreams come true, and ending each work day with a fireworks show. I miss it terribly and go back as often as I can to curb my cravings. To further feed my fixation, I’ve decided to launch The Princess Perspective, a blog devoted to all things Disney.
When I was cast to perform in the parks I was ecstatic, but I was a Disney aficionado long before the Mouse started signing my paychecks. This was thanks to a childhood full of countless road trips (thanks Mom and Dad!) to that fantastical land in Central Florida.
Because of my frequent visitation (and practically living there for quite some time), I really know my way around the World, so I’m very excited to share my tips and ideas with like-minded Disney lovers.
Haters be warned, this will not be a cast member confessional style expose dishing all of the gory backstage details. Because I still value the magic, I won’t go too far in depth with the details of my work there as a performer.
Hint: I was good friends with characters like this…
I also did some print work for the company during my Disney stint. To get the rest of the FAQ’s out of the way – yes, there is a tunnel under the Magic Kingdom. No, there is not air conditioning inside the fur costumes. And to my knowledge, Walt Disney’s cryonically frozen body is not hiding underneath the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. That’s it! The rest of the dirt is staying in the vault.
I may be retired as far as professional princessing goes, but I will forever be (and always have been) a Disney princess at heart. Going forward, The Princess Perspective will feature Walt Disney Company news, hotel and restaurant reviews, Disney home décor and fashion ideas, as well as park tips and vacation ideas from my experiences, both as a guest and a cast member. Stay tuned for my coverage of the Disney Princess Half Marathon, which I’ll be live tweeting as I run next weekend.
See ya real soon! 😉
