My friend is good friends with Goofy and Tigger, and he informed me that Goofy is going to get shorter. I think he is going to start at 5' 10, or something like that, but i don't know when they are going to start enforcing that. So Goofy is going to go through a shrinking stage soon!

Hi, quick question

I really want to be a character.. ive previously worked at chuck e cheese and my job was being chuck. Im really good at it, and i learned alot of skills while being this character. my height is 6 foot exactly.. i want to be tigger! but any character would be nice!

my recuriter told me there only haveing auditions in

North Carolina Dance Institute - Raleigh, NC

Generations Performing Arts Center - Columbus, OH

I live in illinois .. so that means i must travel to one of these locations to do an audtion? How much of a chance usually do average people have at these audtions? Do they usually recruit alot? I do not want to waste the money to get over to these locations to find out that there only recruiting a certain amount. i looked on
corporate.disney.go./auditions

to find out that there having audtions at the disney world
those are going april-june
If it is possible i would want to do one of the audtions when I arrive in disney for the cp in may does anyone know if you must complete one of the audtions before arrival? or can you attend one when you arrive?


i have my phone interview on monday ... I was going to ask them but if you know the answer it would be helpful

thanks alot

Most of the auditions have passed already, which is why there are only a couple auditions left.

Also, if you go down on the CP in a role, you are not able to audition unless you are planning on extending your CP.

I know this really doesn't have anything to do with the auditions but it applies to characters so i guess it can go here...

do they use normal character performers to play the characters at star wars weekends? and has anyone out there ever got to be a star wars character? along with being a disney character- being a star wars character would be sooo awesome! i would love to get to work those weekends!

It depends on the character. But for the most part, yes.

I know what you mean! When I found out I was Fall instead of FA... the first thing that came to my mind was... Now I'll NEVER be friends with C3PO (who is in my height range) - that would have been so much fun!!!

Not for all of them. I know several of the SWW characters. And they assist regular characters.

Tomorrow is the big day! I have been to multiple Disney auditions before so I'm not that nervous, but this time is something I was more then anything! Is anyone else here going to the auditions tomorrow in San Francisco? I'm 6'0 so I'm really hoping that my height will get me into a character roll.

Good luck!!

6'0 is a good height. It's under the special consideration.

So I just got back from the audition. All in all I had such an amazing time and met some great people. We had to do two different improves before doing the dance routine. I must admit that this audition was pretty crucial. Now comes the wait of knowing if I got in.
