So for those of you waiting for my update: At 8:43am, I was offered the character choice of Cinderella or Alice (based on looks and knowledge of character) My draw back is that Indy is right about this place. It's a dream come true to be offered this position, but my salary and benefits are less than being at the Post Dispatch. And there is no ironwork for Ryan here. I'm needing lots of prayers and pixie dust to make a mature decision*+.*+.*+.

Look I'm going to say this will all the respect in the world to you all. If you're pay will be cut and Ryan would find it difficult to find work, it might be a good idea to pass this up. A dream come true yes I understand, but believe me and this isn't because of my unfortunate past with the company, it's fun, but you will not be able to live off a Disney salary alone. Really take this to mind. Text me if you want to talk to Michelle and I about this more in private on the matter and we'll help you as much as we can. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #3 8:37AM
You and Marion are awesome. I love you guys - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #44 8:52AM
I have to say that this is probably the best answer your going to get. We have to be smart about the choices we make in our lives because our children are affected by these choices. And ultimatly isn't everything we do for them? - MunetMorelloMouse  20.5 #169 8:56AM
I know its the best advice. While working here would be a dream come true I'm afraid it would mess with for many other bigger better plans. For instance, we want to have 2 more children. And those are expensive LOL - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #44 9:02AM
I agree with Indy. You got the offer you were looking for but realistically it's probably not feasible if you really can't make a living or support your growing family on the salary. The dream will always be there...maybe further on down life's road it will come true. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #18 9:07AM
Maybe when your older and your kids have kids you can be The Fairy Godmother Lol - MunetMorelloMouse  20.5 #169 9:30AM
Im sure life has many Happy Moments in store for you so keep smiling =) - MunetMorelloMouse  20.5 #169 9:33AM
That's a really tough decision I'm sure. You have to do what's right for your family both career wise and financially. Ryan could find work in another field but would he be happy with that? Good luck and sending you tons of pixie dust! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #21 7:49AM
No he wouldn't LOL - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #44 7:52AM
I'm so excited they offered you the job! And I don't want to rain on the parade but I know they pay sucks. And it's tough trying to survive down here on a Disney salary. As it is Indy and I are living with my Mother and Brother who both also work for Disney. None of us would be able to afford to survive on our own. I'll keep you both in my prayers. I want to see you all happy. - MarionandIndy  49.9 #104 8:48AM
Thanks girl! Me too - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #44 8:52AM
I think you may not fully live one of your dreams but you are able to turn it down and know that you did reach it just along the way you made more dreams for your self. How many people can say they reached their dreams and can walk away to something bigger and better in life. You know that you truly are a princess, disney even said so! 😊 - cheekymouse  34.9 #130 9:28AM
WELL SAID!! I agree 100%!!! - mrsincredible  1115.7 #6 9:36AM
Your dreams has already came true! Be satisfied with the fact that you had the opportunity and offer to finally become a princess ... So now you can never say "what if"... it was fun to audition, and you were chosen!, it makes a great story and now you can do your real job and have a real happy ever after! - Boardwalkgirl  55.9 #100 4:08PM
So they will be starting you out at min. wage? - justGoofin  156.8 #55 7:48AM
Not quite LOL but its still significantly lower than what I make now - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #44 7:52AM
GOOD LUCK. hopefully things will work out for you guys. Lots if pixie dust. - yessy  224.9 #39 7:51AM
Good Luck! Lots of prayers and pixie dust! - justGoofin  156.8 #55 7:56AM
Congratulations to being in the position to have to make a tough decision. It's wonderful that you were offered a character roll and choice. Good luck and pixie dust sent! Part of me wants you to take the Cinderella roll so we can all have our pictures taken with the "real Cinderella"! - jacdanfan  10972.2 #3 8:03AM
Congrats on the offer.. its a tough choice .. but think of this ..will the move be good for my kids are we going to be happy here ..but the one thing am I going to live comfortable with the money I make here.. whatever the choice u make I know you'll do good .. you're such a sweet girl with such a kind heart.. that god will do good for you.. ill be praying for ya..:)** - Disneymom36  62.4 #94 8:06AM
Good luck !!! Prayers going your way !!!! - skcanfield  551.2 #14 8:07AM
The money is less but is the cost of living in Florida also less? How would the quality of life for your family compare? Once your time as Cindy (or Alice) ends, will there be other opportunities for you in the company? Sometimes you need to step down in pay to open up new opportunities for you in the future. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1259.6 #4 8:15AM
Its just not my opportunity. There is also no work for Ryan here and he doesn't know how to do anything else. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #44 8:18AM
But, surely, he knew there would be a chance for you to get the offer. What were his thoughts when you decided to go try out? - mrsincredible  1115.7 #6 8:22AM
He was very supportive but we honestly thought the pay and benefits would be more =/ - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #44 8:35AM
So sorry they don't pay more than they do!! :( - mrsincredible  1115.7 #6 9:27AM
Boy, that's a tough one... because you can't put a price tag on your dream, but then you also have to be able to provide for your family. No chance Ryan would change careers so you could move? It is an opportunity of a lifetime, and not something you could really put off. I pray you guys make a decision that you can both live with without regret. Maybe just having the opportunity was enough? Selfishly, I want you to be Cinderella, too!! :) Good luck and pixie dust... Please keep us posted on your decision. - mrsincredible  1115.7 #6 8:17AM
How flattering is that to get an offer to be a princess. I will be praying for your family that you are able to make the best decision. I will also be praying that Ryan can find work there. It would be great if Disney could hire him for their maintenance crew. Best wishes on making a tough decision. Keep us posted. - MinnieNurse  331.5 #718 8:22AM
Did he apply to anything at Disney? - MunetMorelloMouse  20.5 #169 8:24AM
And, if not, could he? - mrsincredible  1115.7 #6 8:25AM
That pay is lower also...as it goes right now, we would have to drastically change the way we live. Moving from a nice house to a townhome. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #44 8:34AM
Yeah, that isn't good. St. Loius is a nice area...we are about 5 hours south west of you guys in Northwest AR. Maybe you guys can retire in FL? The kids will be older and maybe it would just be the two of you then. My heart aches for you guys and the decision you are faced with. Thinking of you today and sending prayers up!! - mrsincredible  1115.7 #6 9:31AM
Life decisions are so much harder when you are not single ,wish i did have a wand to wave and give the right answer but if you have to completely change your life and not so much for the better other than getting be Cinderella which you are completely perfect for by the way ,I would say to go over every little detail with Ryan and decide what in the long run is best for you both and your beautiful babies,sending you pixie dust luck and prayers(( hugs)) - tracsant  1461.6 #2 8:45AM
Tough choice! But if your quality of life will go down you have to take that into consideration. It would be so hard to give up your dream though. And now that you are married Ryans happiness is going to count for yours too. Good luck and I will send up prayers for you and your family right now - girlonfire  54.1 #102 8:48AM
And don't forget the weather is much nicer in StL than in Florida! Florida is like the country's basement! - girlonfire  54.1 #102 9:12AM
LOL thanks LOL - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #44 9:28AM
Bottom line, you go Disneys stamp of approval, the only way you could get a higher approved to be a princess is by the Queen of England her self! Now how many can say that! - cheekymouse  34.9 #130 10:55AM
I would have totally picked u for SNOW WHITE! Lol you'd just needa wig. Cinderella is ur fav tho assuming so that'd b very fun for u... - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #71 11:15AM
Congrats on getting your dream of being Cinderella. I know you have a tuff decision, but in the end you will pick what's good for you and your family. Sending you pixie dust ✨✨✨✨ Also you don't have to play a princess to be one, because you are all ready a Wonderful Princess! - lakerck  165.1 #54 11:28AM
Sooo true! - Disneymom36  62.4 #94 11:58AM
Ditto!! You will always be our Cinderella no matter your decision!! - mrsincredible  1115.7 #6 12:34PM
Id say go for it!!! You only live once! Maybe you can do it seasonally? - BuckeyeBrandi  35.6 #127 12:53PM
Congrats on your opportunity. I know your heart can lead you in the right decision. Good luck! - BodinFabFive  26.3 #144 1:29PM
Do what's best for your family, and Aldo yourself! Ask yourself, if I dont do this, will I regret it in two years? And if you will, go for it! And if not, then don't! :) - HannahBanana36  46.4 #110 2:42PM
Congrats on the offer, but sorry it wasn't exactly what you needed! How sad....so close yet so far. Prayers and pixie dust for you and your family on this tough decision! - ncjal  279.5 #29 2:43PM
Congrats on the offer! Prayers and pixie dust for you and your family during this difficult decision! - Andrea84  711.1 #10 3:04PM
Sometimes it's hard being a wife and parent, but I believe Indy is giving you realistic advice. It's wonderful to know you were offered such a position and I know you would be perfect. But looking at the future happiness of your family has to be the top consideration. Hugs to you!!! - ally  509.0 #17 4:05PM
Your dreams has already came true! Be satisfied with the fact that you had the opportunity and offer to actually become a princess ..it'll be a great story to tell!. So now you can never say "what if"... it was fun to audition and be actually chosen..wow!.., and now you can do your real job and have a real happy ever after! - Boardwalkgirl  55.9 #100 5:12PM
Congrats Tiffany! What an amazing opportunity. Follow your heart, you and Ryan have a lot to discuss. No matter what, you fulfilled one of your dreams. - MagicalFamily  65.6 #90 6:50PM
