Ariana Madix's Disney Princess Job

Ahead of her icy Frozen dance number, Ariana chatted with Entertainment Weeklyabout when she used to dress as The Little Mermaid's Ariel, Sleeping Beauty's Aurora, and the titular character in Cinderella during her time working at Disneyland. 

"I used to hang out with Disney princesses, as we say in the biz," Ariana said. "My closest friend was Sleeping Beauty. I hung out with her the most. Then Cinderella and Ariel."

Ariana joked that her toned arms come from one of the princesses. 

"These are Ariel arms," she added. "Quickstep arms."

Ariana Madix'd Disney Princess Role Was "the Best Job"

Back in 2015, Ariana reflected on her Disney days with fondness during the Vanderpump Rules After Show. As she explained, she's always been a big fan of the Disney parks and the princess movies. 

"I am the 'never grow up, it is a trap' person," she said in the clip at the top of this post. "There's always that stigma or mindset that when you grow up, you have to stop having fun. But, I grew up going to Disney all the time, and I still love those kinds of movies and that kind of G-rated level of fun. And I think I will always like that." 

Ariana Madix dressed as Sleeping Beauty for her role as a Disney Princess in Disney World.

She also noted that dressing up as the aforementioned princesses was a role that she loved. 

"Yeah, it was the best job ever," she concluded. "It really was."
