Hello everyone, long time no blog! I’m super sorry that it’s been a while since I last wrote a post but as some of you may know I was on holiday for 13 days in Gran Canaria so I was making the most of just relaxing and doing nothing. HOWEVER, I am back and ready to blog so lets go… This post is going to be a little in sight into my life as a cast memeber at Disneyland Paris. I asked on Twitter for any questions that you guys might have and I got a good response back which was super amazing. I obviously can’t answer certain questions as we want to preserve the magic as much as possible but I shall try to answer as many of your questions as I possibly can.
@elliesteadman: most magical moment? Favourite character you met? How was it learning parade routines? Favourite ride?
A: My most magical moment at DLP was probably when I was friends with Mr Penguin on parade and Burt lifted Mr Penguin up in the air spinning him around with his little Penguin feet in the air, I thought to myself “Wow, my job is mental and i’m so super lucky!”. Weird moment to have that thought but there you go. My favourite character that I met would have to be Gaston, I have a feeling you may agree with this when I say he’s just absolutely flawless. Such a good meet, he just made me laugh from start to finish. I mean, he’s well and truly “everyone’s favourite guy!” Parade routines were crazy hard for me, my version of torture but I managed to get through it somehow. Favourite ride has hands down got to be Hollywood Tower of Terror, i’m a massive thrill seeker and I love this ride. If I were to choose a non scary ride it would have to be Pans Flight as it’s just the cutest thing ever and I genuinely well up with tears when i’m on it.
A: My first day was honestly a whirlwind of a magical day, it was a crazy and I think that I may have to do a whole post on what my first day was like. If you would be interested in that?
A: Working there has ruined a bit of the magic for me yes but I think that was inevitable, I would return to DLP but not exactly to holiday but to see my friends. I’d LOVE to go to any other park on holiday though.
@Charl_Selby What’s your most memorable experience with someone who came to see Rapunzel? 🙂 @meganstagram_ What hours do you have & how does your day as a character go? @diseverywhere did you need to be able to speak French?
A: It’s a lot of fun, I enjoyed being friends with them a lot 🙂 Some people feel above it but I personally really enjoyed it.
A: Erm… nope? Hardest part of the job for me was learning dance routines as I am in no way a dancer, I am able to dance but I’ve never been trained so lack some of the skills needed for certain dances. It put a lot of pressure on me as I really wanted to prove myself but I ended up getting very stressed about it all.
A: I was I have already mentioned a few of my friends in above questions so check them out!
@myriaaaaam Did you visit some of Paris during your stay in France? What did you think of the French at the park? Is it you who wanted your contract lasts only three months? Why not be stayed longer at Disneyland? Have you been afraid the first time you came out backstage dressed as a princess? what did you do ur 1st day of work? Were you directly transformed into character? were you doing the role of Rapunzel every day? If not, what were you doing as other work? did you learn to speak a little French when you were in France?
