Hey, I'm new to these threads, but I had a question. I am thinking about trying for the College Program next spring, but I wanted to be prepared. I am currently a theatre major at my college, so I would really like to be a character performer in the program, but I am 5'10" and I have a trouble learnign a dance on short notice, such as at auditions (although once I learn a dance I'll know it forever). I also heard that if you audition, you have to wait longer to find out if you are in the program and the other jobs you show interest in continue to fill up, so there's a chance that not only will I not make it as a character performer, but I won't even make the program. Any suggestions on whether I should take a chance at auditions or take a safer route?

While it is true that you wait longer to find out if you are accepted as a character performer, you find out if you are accepted into the program as another role on your checklist before you audition. So you will know whether or not you got in and have a spot saved in your desired area. So go ahead and audition! It'll be fun and can't harm your chances. Best of luck!

Thanks a lot! I've been wanting to work at Disney World, since high school, so I didn't want something like this to ruin my chances of getting in.

This is killing me! =P Thursday I do my face to face interview with them, and a few days after that I find out if I'm a character performer. If I am, I'm guaranteed a spot even after my audition (my audition isn't until I get down there!) So exciting.

Oh wow, that's such a different process! Good luck!

So, just curious, how many of the people on here are already working in WDW in some form? Or will be in April?
