You should talk to erikaamato. She has loads of Disney experience.

I went to casting call for Belle at the Disney studio here in CA. They didn't contact me until like 2 months after the audition. It's kind of crazy.

So you're gonna have to live in Hong Kong? That's crazy! But pretty cool. When do you start?

Sorry I'm turning this into one huge PM.

I worked for Disney in the Mulan Parade a few years ago. I didn't make any money there but it was extremly fun! I know the performers in the stage shows get paid a lot more! Best of luck to you in Hong Kong!You Should have a blast!

Well done. I love Disneyland Paris, and am sure I would love the other parks. The shows are a huge part of the experience for me. Just remember that you are Belle, you aren't an actress playing Belle, that is the Disney way as I understand it.

Thanks for the advice. I'm not sure what to expect, but so far no one has a bad thing to say about working for Disney.

Ya!!!!! It is somewhat true! I could see it being even more true since you will be in China and will probably be living with Disney people as well as working with them!
