I'm actually gonna confirm what the other person said- Bella's got awful reviews. Cagan Crossings is a pretty cheap place but I think it's a little further out, 20-30 min maybe? Not too terrible.

Oh, and I didn't read your post closely enough- they didn't tell you who to play, but if Alice was who they asked you to read for, there might be a pretty good chance that you'll be playing her, I think.

Yes they did ask me to send in an audition video for her!!! Why do you say there's a good chance, if you don't mind me asking? Just wondering because I am really excited haha! I am going to spend all day 'studying' how to be her and the other characters I might be from youtube videos and the cartoons haha! I really want the job but I feel very unprepared. A lot of people spend their whole lives wanting to work at WDW as a character or they have a lot of professional experience in acting and things. Where as I do not... I have a lot of experience on stage and dancing and singing, just not in big shows and I have never been trained or taken classes. I am nervous about what Disney expects. I am going to try my best though!
Here is a funny story for you.... I have only ONE friend working at WDW right now and she is in Guest Relations!! I am going to be living with her and the other girl I found. Guess where she is living right now and needs roommates for? BELLA..... AHHHHHHHH. Haha. Needless to say I am not very happy about it.... But she insisted on it and there was no way to change her mind. Plus, it was my only option and I had to do it.

Also, on my dashboard on disneycareers it says that I am a character performer pg..... Do you know what that means? I could just be over analyzing things but those two letters are annoying me because I don't know what it means. Haha!

What kind of video did they ask for? If it was for Alice, did you have to speak with a British accent?

It was an audition video of me reading a script they sent me in a youthful, British accent while standing in a certain way.

I really wouldn't worry about other people's experience. There are tons and tons of folks on the College Program who are friends with face characters that have never really acted before, and they come and go every 4/6 months. The most important thing is to have fun with it, and work hard. Disney does expect a lot, of course, but you do have to realize that if you love it, it won't ever feel like work. (And again, I'm so jealous. I have ALWAYS wanted to be in Entertainment.)

Don't sweat it about Bella. If you make enough friends, you might not even be spending that much time at home anyway!

Character Performer PG is the classification for Character Performers, meaning you're probably going to do meet and greets. I sent you a message with a few more details, but I wouldn't worry about it, that status just says you're a Character Performer. (again. jealous.)

Does PG stand for Position-Global?

oh my goodness you are seriously the luckiest girl i know! You better take full advantage of your once in a lifetime opportunity I never knew they did esubmissions and we be on the lookout for the future. I think it would be really cool if you did a trip report sort of thing about your experience. I know you probably can't post much about being friends with Alice, but just like the lifestyle of a friend would be awesome to hear about! Congrats!!!!!

Ah!! Congrats!! I'm very happy to hear that SOMEONE has heard back from those!! All over tumblr people had heard "not now" or just NOTHING back from casting. Myself included, I submitted in Sept, and waited, and waited, and waited. The took the posting down, then would re post it and say "don't re apply if you applied to an earlier one" Ugh, but CONGRATS!!!! I hope you have the most magical experience of your life!

I wanted to mention that disneyauditions.com has posted another Female Disney Character Look-alikes: electronic submissions. **Deadline for submissions is February 8, 2013 at 5:00 PM EST**

eparri01 is a great example of how one can get a job by doing this type of audition!
