Bio: Erin has been obsessed with Disney films for as long as she can remember, and she has always dreamed of becoming a Disney Princess™. She has a passion for Disney music in particular and prides herself on her knowledge of it, though she also loves learning about the history and behind-the-scenes of the parks and films. As a Disneyland Passholder, her favorite part about going to the parks is the entertainment, because she feels that the characters and shows are a different experience every time. One day, she hopes to travel to each of the Disney Parks around the world and explore how the classic Disney brand and values are incorporated into different cultures (she has yet to visit Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong). Her ultimate dream is to work for Disney, both in the parks and on a corporate level, and when she’s not attending auditions, you can catch her obsessively checking the Disney Jobs and Disney Auditions webpages.
Co-President - Kaylee Snow Grade: Sophomore Majors: Theatre Technology and Communication Studies Hometown: Lake Elsinore, CA Favorite Disney Characters: Mary Poppins, Tinker Bell, Genie, Chewbacca, Porgs Favorite Disney Movies: anything Pixar (choosing one is like choosing your favorite child), Lion King & Star Wars (New and Originals) Favorite Disney Attractions & Shows!: Fantasmic, Mickey and the Magical Map, World of Color, Disney’s Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular (RIP), Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Greek Affiliation: Alpha Gam
Bio:Kaylee was raised watching Mary Poppins daily and frequenting Disneyland (almost every Friday of second grade). When at the parks you can find her catching Mickey and the Magical Map, watching the technicians working Fantasmic!, finding new technology throughout the park, or trying to get a new high score on Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters. Her favorite genre of Disney movie is Pixar, though she still appreciates the classics, and she firmly supports Pixar Theory that all Pixar movies are connected. Her goals are to one day be a Disney cast member (Mission accomplished!!!) and work on shows like Fantasmic!, as well as visit all the Disney theme parks and have a total of 104 days of Summer vacation.
