    Hi,

    I'm 19 and live in the UK and i desperately want to come over and work in WDW within the next few years either as a ride attendant or a character. My family and friends say I should be because I'm only 5"2 and have long strawberry blonde hair!! Does anyone know how I can get more information about jobs at WDW? Also is it even possible for me to work there seeing as I'm not from the US? I heard that the only job I could get is in the United Kingdom pavillion at but I'd love not to be restricted to only working there.

    Thanks for your help!

    I wish I was there right now!!

    oh i would totally help you if i could. my best suggestion is to go to wdwcollegeprogram.com then find their section on international students and get more info there. I also know that there will be some kind of phone number or email address to reach them.
    good luck!

    Just one thing though. Ariel is taller then 5'2. In fact, most of the face characters are in the 5'5 height range and taller. I believe the only "short" characters are Alice (5'3), Mulan (5'3 about, but has to be Asian), and maybe Wendy (about 5'3-5'4, I think). But fur is fun. I'm auditioning to be a character myself, and I think it will be a blast!!

    Really?? That's a bummer! I could have sworn that they said 5"2 on the disney website when I first looked. I'd better have another look to check. Maybe I could be Mickey or Minnie Mouse? They're quite short!

    Sorry again! Mickey and Minnie only go up to 5'0 even. They are VERY short. However, you can be "friends" with Chip and Dale, King Louie, Suzy, Perla, Robin Hood, White Rabbit, ect.

    Where do you get all your information about this from because you seem to know loads and I don't know anything!?! Is there a website that I can go to because I'd love to know a bit more!
    All you need is Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust!

    Well, I worked in the MK for 8 months (did the Spring 2005 CP) and I am friends with a lot of character performers. In fact, my roomie and CP best friend are both characters. So I know a few things (there wouldn't be a website with this information because Disney wants to keep the "magic" secret).
