If you're auditioning for a character, do you need to complete your phone interview and mail/fax in your role checklist and app beforehand? Or do they do interviews and accept paper copies there?

I've completed my applications online, and I did my web-based interview for the DL CP (I'm going for both DL and WDW). My audition is Nov 2 in OKC.

They don't accept the interview papers there at the audition. It would have to be mailed in before.

Do you mean the application papers?

And that the phone interview must be completed beforehand?

Hi, I was wondering if I could ask a question - I'm not actually applying for the CP, I'm applying for FT but I'm auditioning to be a character/parade performer and I thought this place would be a good place to ask! I have dance background but have never auditioned before, and I was wondering what I should wear - it's not technically a dance audition but I know there will be a dance to learn so what kind of things do people wear? Also, on the auditions website it mentions bringing headshots with you - is that for all auditions? I don't have any right now and I don't want to get them done if they're not really necessary. Any help would be appreciated, I'm more nervous than I thought I would be!!

You will need to bring headshots since you're auditioning for FT. Also wear comfortable clothes like sweats, yoga pants, etc. You're also going to have to sing as well (as far as I know but I'm positive about the rest of this information).

Thanks for letting me know about the phone interview!

One last question (for now) - I heard that apparently, at the auditions, I can also go for seasonal work. Ideally, I would love to work seasonally this summer, and then do the CP next spring advantage (2010). Do I need to complete any applications ahead of time for seasonal? I was told by my campus rep that I just need to talk to the people running the audition so that they know I am auditioning for seasonal, DLR CP and WDW CP, so is that all I need to worry about?

Seriously??? I had NO idea I had to sing!!! That will not be pretty, I can't sing at all! That's a little off putting - on the website it just mentioned the dance portion and the animation exercise. Hmmm, maybe I won't go for this after all. But thanks for the other info, I really appreciate it

That's OK, LOL!!! I was panicking a bit - I just tried singing a bit and my kitten hissed at me and then walked away in disgust so I wasn't feeling too confident!!

It varies. Some do, and some don't. The last time I auditioned in Boston, they didn't pull for face.

They do take cosmetology to some of the larger audition locations... but even if they don't pull you there, if they see something they like at your audition then you'll get pulled on your day 2 at check-in.

Also, do you all have any tips that may help me out? I would love to hear about any experiences that you all have had at the Disney auditions.

Thanks!

Jbird003,


I applied for Spring 2009 also and will be going to the Nashville auditions too. Are you nervous about the auditions? I am still slightly nervous but reading the responses on here has definitely helped.

Question, if sign in is at 9:30 am, about when do you think auditions would end? I don't know how many people will be there. It's in Orem Utah, so probably not as much as other places.
