Lookalike E-Submission Experience - Please Read!
 
I am a new member to DISboards and I wasn't sure where to post this thread. But anyway, I did not apply to Disney through the CP program, I applied through their E-Submissions on the audition website for Character Lookalike. I can't find anyone who has been through what I have so I wanted to ask a few questions to find somebody!!!
I applied via. e-submission with a head shot and resume for the position of a character lookalike. Disney Casting emailed me back 3 different times asking for more pics and asking different questions. On the third time they sent me a script for a certain character role asking for me to send in an audition video... I sent it in and received a phone call a week later (on a Tuesday) with a woman making me a 'Conditional Offer' and she gave me a TON of information asking me to think about a full-time character performer position and then she proceeded to tell me I should be expecting a phone interview with the lady over hiring at WDW before the weekend..... she also told me if I had any questions to call her personal line and leave a message....Well, it's now Sunday and the wait is killing me. I called and left a breif message to make sure I should still be expecting a call and to let her know I would love to take a full-time position and could move ASAP. I have do have a bit of a southern accent, but in my audition video it was not evident at all...I am scared that my accent affected their views of me... And I am scared they aren't going to call me back... I have NO IDEA when to expect the call or what is going on... Has anybody else had an e-submission experience? Has anyone ever had Disney NOT call them back? I am so confused and I have never heard of this happening to anyone!! I desperately want this job!!!! Please reply if you know anything about the e-submission experience.....

I don't know about the e-submissions and how differently they work, but I wouldn't worry. It sounds like they were very interested in you and I don't think your accent made a difference. Many people have had this happen to them before-if you've already called and left a message, I would advise to just wait it out. Most likely you're just anxious and they will get back to you. Congratulations though! So jealous:)

Thank you so much for replying!! They still haven't called me but I've been waiting for a reply to this thread so that makes me feel better!!!! I just hate that it's been a week since they've contacted me... I hope they didn't forget and still want me lol ahhhh!!! But thank you very much! Ill reply if they ever call me haha

No problem! If it gets to be a VERY long time, it's really up to your own judgement whether or not to call. I've just heard lots of stories around this thread-Disney is notorious for not calling back by the time they say they will. Yes, please do! I'll probably worry almost as much as you until they call:)

Well I got an email yesterday (Wednesday) asking me to fill out an application that required a code to fill out, then they sent me a request for a phone interview this morning... So I scheduled it for Monday at 10:00 am!!! I'm happy I finally know what's going on now, but it's confusing!! Haha It looks like I might be competing for the position, but they made me a 'conditional offer' so I'm not sure what to think!!! I will reply again and let you know how my interview goes!!! Haha!
