I'm still auditioning anyway, though. Oct. 12 in Denver. Good luck.
Since you've got me interested I checked the Audition Calendar once again and they are in Denver come October 12th. It's also at the same place as last time, and I don't know if you've been before. It's down in Littleton, and people will start showing up around 10a, possibly earlier. My recommendation is arrive a little bit earlier, dressed appropriately, and try to make some new friends. The two gentleman last time were amazing and so much fun as they had energy flowing out of them. If they do it like last time as well, it will be a giant group session, but hopefully will split everyone up. It's the basic process from there, as it applies to all the auditions.

As always, first number is chosen by who finished the paperwork the quickest!

Last but not least, make sure to get people's numbers if you go as the chances are quite slim that you'll run into them again. One mistake I made, and missed out on Miss #1 last time. (Really, she was the first one done, nicest gal too!)

Let me know if you have any specific questions, or any at all!

Have a Magical Day!

QUestions

HI everyone, this is my first post, but i have been reading alot of this thread and learned alot. I really want to work as a princess/fairy character at Disney World. I have a few questions if some of you could please answer them for me. Right now I am fifteen years old and I am almost 5'3, I am very small and i shouldn't grow over 5'4-5'5. I am graduating from High School in 2 years and i wanted to know what programs to get involved after graduation, also, should i apply for seasonal characters?? And what is the scheduling like if you do get a character job???

Thank you for your time <3

So I am heading to the CP audition on the 12th in Denver, and I'm wondering if I have a good chance or not. I've applied for the CP, and I have my phone interview next Thursday.

I'm 5'7, and I am a dress size 4. I've done dance all my life, and I was the varsity captain of my high school's cheerleading team. I'm very outgoing, bubbly and I get along with people really well. I also did a lot of acting in middle school, and I was cast in a movie.

You can see my picture in my profile (it's my avatar picture). I would love to be any character (face or fur), but my dream is to be Rapunzel.

I see a lot of people asking questions very similar to this one! The dance and acting experience can really help you at the audition, but in the end your chances are varied based on how well your audition goes!

I've seen where professional dancers were turned down after a character performer audition! They don't just want people with talent, they need people with a little pixie dust too

As long as you smile and have a great time at the audition, they'll see that you love what you are doing and that will give you a better chance.

With face characters, it's extremely difficult to say. Disney looks for very specific appearance qualities when pulling for face. I see a lot of girls say "All of my friends say I look JUST like Cinderella!" and after the audition she doesn't get pulled for face. It really depends on what they are looking for and how desperate (or not) they need that specific character. They may even pull someone for face and decide later that you aren't right for the role!

I'm not trying to sound negative, just realistic I'm auditioning on October 5th in Orlando and I'm so excited! We both have the same dream haha. I'd absolutely love to hang with Rapunzel at WDW! But I am just going to go to the audition and have a great time and try my hardest! I'll have my fingers crossed for both of us

I would recommend arriving at around 11am or around then as that's when people will probably plan to do so. For mine I arrived an hour earlier and there were already quite a few people in the lobby. There wasn't any real "Line" either.

First off, break a leg!

Since you've already done the first step of applying, you should be good. If your audition is before your phone interview, make sure to note during your phone interview that you attended auditions. Although they have two separate application processes/methods it's nice to just let them know.

You sound like you'll be perfectly fine since you have quite the background in dance. I'm sure you've already read about the process, as they do it the same. Acting will help you with the Animation Task. I typed up an entire somewhere (or to someone) of the entire proceedings but can't seem to find it right now. The two guys last time were Kent (Entertainment Director) & Ken (Dance Coordinator).

EDIT: Found the email I sent to one of my CM friends, let me know if you want to read it.

Have a Magical Day!

Hi! I am thinking about applying for the cp in spring 2014. I know it's a little early but I was wondering which face characters you can get if you are 5'1. I was thinking tinkerbell or maybe Alice. I am 5'1, brown hair, green eyes, and very thin. Are there any other face characters I might qualify for?

I have a quick question - I'm applying to be a character performer, and I'd love to be a princess (wouldn't we all? ), but I'm around 5'9"-5'10"... would I be considered too tall? What kind of options do I have?

At that height, you could possibly be friends with Alice and Wendy (maybe Tink)

Unfortunately at that height, you are too tall for princesses
