Upminster teenager gets job playing Cinderella in Disneyland Paris

An Upminster teenager is proving that dreams can come true after landing a job playing a princess in Disneyland Paris.

Disney mad, Taylor Cressy, 19 from Griffin Avenue is due to fly out later this month to the holiday park and recreation resort in France.

She said: “I feel so excited and I think it is absolutely brilliant.

“It is my dream job because I am a massive Disney fan and I have got all the memorabilia.

Taylor, who studied performing arts and dance at Havering College of Further and Higher Education in Hornchurch, went for her sixth audition to work in Disneyland Paris two weeks ago.

A week later, she found out that she had got the part playing Cinderella and Snow White.

The role will see her living in the Disneyland resort, playing the characters and also taking part in all the parades.
