I would expect to be there at least 2-3 hours. It varies by the amount of people, and if you are called back for anything.

I just auditioned at Rochester this Friday. Sign in was at 10:30, and I was the 10th person, in the third group. I was done around 12:30.

Question Confused!

So I had my character audition in Chicago on Friday the 24th. My audition was a blast and I thought I did great but I was a bit confused about what the recruiter told my group after the audition. I was the 11th person out of 85 so my group was the second to go. After the audition the recruiter told us he had good and bad news. He said that we passed the audition but now they have to figure out where to put us. So does that sound like I made it? or does it sound like I've been put in the character pool?

Also, Chicago, along with NY, is the first audition site of the season, so they couldn't know if Ive been put in the character pool. I was measured at 5.3. So I'm not under 5 or over 6 but I'm not at the average height (like 5'4 - 5'8). I'm just freaking out and don't know what to think.

ARGH!

They are actually over staffed in ALL heights!! Even though they say they give special consideration above six and below five, they really are full in those too. Most of the fairies they just hired are your height, which is why yours is extra tight, and they've taken away most of the munk meet and greets which just leaves Pooh in your range. In order to help make up for it they did just add Mittens into your height range - but she requires a slender frame.

What was your exact measurement? If you are a the higher end of 5'3 you'd be closer to King Louie, Smee and Bolt. If you're down into 5'2 then you'd get Little Einsteins, 5'3 is really just Pooh and Munks.

It is possible to be put into the pool that first weekend (that's what happened to my roommate), if you do get the pool then make sure you call to indicate that you're really interested! My roommate did that and was pulled out of the pool within the next couple weeks (before auditions were over).

I attended the Phoenix audition yesterday! There were about 45-50 people. The audition was for Disneyland and Disney World, and the recruiters were both from Disneyland. The whole audition lasted approx. 2 hours, and we didn't dance at all. (I was surprised) Everything was animation-based. The recruiters pulled 6 girls for face character consideration. They told everyone we would get an answer by email in 2-3 weeks. The recruiters also accepted headshots and resumes from those who brought them.

So are you saying they're over staffed in all the height ranges right now? I assumed they would fill up in every height range but I assumed that average height would fill up faster. My exact measurement was 64inches and I have a very slender body.

Also, I emailed the Disney recruiter lady on the 29th asking if she new exactly when they would send the emails because I have to know for school and course credit purposes asap. She told me she hoped they would send the emails by the end of the week, but I didn't get anything.

64 inches (5'4) is a common height, unfortunately. The entire Munk height is a common height range.

And here I thought being on the first weekend would put me out of character pool danger.....oh dear This is going to make waiting for the e-mail even more unbearable. I was measured at 5'7", is that particularly common?

If you speak with a recruiter about your situation, please ask them about assignment to the character pool. Do they fill the spots as they tour the country, leaving the last few cities with thinner chances (because of fewer spots left) or do they wait until the end of all auditions?

If its the former, I'll probably consider flying to the east coast for a sooner audition, but that'll be expensive so I want to be sure it'll help!

Thanks and good luck! Please keep us updated on what they say!

It's common, but also there aren't many characters in that range.

Here's another random question: I know CPs don't get to do any shows, cause that are equity-only, but can can do parades.....what about things like Fantasmic? It'd be a DREAM to be in Fantasmic.....just wondering

CPs can do shows (its VERY rare, though). If CPs get picked for anything, most of the time it is for parades. It all depends on what they are looking for.

And for the record, Fantasmic is a show.

I talked with a recruiter before the audition at my school presentation. I was thinking about going to the audition in Des Moines because my family lives in the Quad Cities and I knew at Des Moines there would be less people so I thought I'd have a better advantage. He said it doesn't matter where you go because they wait till the auditions are over to make their final decision so you don't need to waste all the money to fly to a different audition. That's why I was confused when the other recruiter told me they were sending emails by the end of the week.

They do make some decisions before all the auditions are over. I received my email 5 days after the audition (that said I didn't get performer). My letter came 2.5 weeks after the audition (my audition was the first one).
