13 Inscrutable Requirements to Be A Princess In Disney World Resort

Anna and Elsa

Ever since I was a little girl, I always admired the Disney princesses. When I got the opportunity to meet them in person I was even more enamored with their beauty and poise. Unfortunately in adulthood I realized that the beautiful princesses I had seen as a child were merely talented actresses, however I soon reached the epiphany that maybe one day I could be one of those actresses bringing dreams to life! As I prepare for my first audition for Disney I wanted to find out exactly what it takes to be a Disney Princess and here’s what I found.

1. Height Requirement:

For most of the princesses there is a height requirement between 5’4 and 5’7 to help preserve character integrity as well as costume fitting.

2. Sizing:

The largest size Disney carries for their princess costumes is size 10. Former Disney princesses have stated in their blogs that they have found these to be true to size.  


3. Auditioning:

To be a character at the parks, you must go through the audition process. Check out the audition calendar at to find your nearest audition. Look for the auditions that say Female Character Look-Alike and this usually means they are looking for princesses. At the audition you will learn a simple dance routine, and if you progress past the dance, you will get a chance to read a script, do some improv and an interview. It can be a very lengthy process, but Disney casting directors are keen on finding the best girls to fit the roles.
