Glad to hear it. I'm the same height as you.


Are you down doing the CP? Or were you going for a FT/PT/Seasonal position?

Aww...I'm sorry about that

At least you know you passed--and passed the full audition! That means you can do it again if you desire. Roles will open up in time!

Hi! I am auditioning Sunday in Pittsburgh at the character audition. I'm not going for the College Program- just for a regular position. I'm really nervous but really excited! Performing in Disney has always been my dream! I read a lot of the posts and they were all very helpful- I just wondered how helpful having a dance background is for getting parade positions and such? Thanks!

Hi bellaDisneydncr, to the DISboards!

I think having a any sort of dance or theatre background is a plus! When you first start out in Entertainment, you will do fur characters. If you wish to do parades and/or shows, you can attend a color-coding audition in which you receive a certain color for your animation and movement skills. This color code will determine what shows & parades you can preference.

I wish you the very best on the 30th!

I know! I'm so excited!

I thought of 2 more questions for everyone out there.
Has anyone ever been to the auditions in Pittsburgh or at least heard about them? Because I was wondering what the amount of people they get auditioning there is. And 2nd- if you are auditioning outside of the college program will you find out that day if you are in or will you have to wait?

Thanks so much everyone- you've been a ton of help!

Do birth makes on your face make a difference for non "furry" characters. They are not moles or anything just birth marks

So my audition was today and I passed the entire audition! They didn't have anything for me right now but I was put into the "character pool" so now the waiting begins. oh well- i'm just so glad I passed and that I could get a call at some point soon! Thanks everyone here for all your advice- it really helped today!

Glad to hear the audition went well, and hopefully you'll get pulled from the pool soon.

BellaDisneydncr - congrat on your audition. Can you tell a little about it and what did you wear. Did you need to take a photo/resume with you?
My daughter is auditioning in about 2 weeks and any info is appreciated.
Thanks

hey bellaDisneydncr, do you mind me asking how tall you were measured? Do you think they just didn't have anything in the height range available right now? Congratulations by the way!!!
