The audition wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I went to the audition in Boston this year for the Fall 2006 CP. When you arrive, they measure you and give you a number (I turned out to be 5'2 1/2" and was #13, out of 42 people). Then you have some time to stretch and talk to people (usually) while they get ready. Then it is time to begin. What happens next depends on the amount of people and how much room there is. Usually at the audition everyone goes together in the beginning, but since we had hardly any room, we went in 2 groups. First, Gene (our auditioner) demonstrated how to animate. Then he started going over the dance part. It is in counts of 4. Finally, it is TIME. You go in groups (it was groups of 4). First you animate (the topic varies, but mine was animating meeting a character and getting a snack). Then you go into the dance part. it starts out easy, but gets harder throughout the dance. Gene did the dance in front in case we needed to look up. After this, what happens next depends on different factors. The next part was the puppet audition. If you were too short, or whatever reason, you weren't called back. I wasn't called back. So I don't know how the puppet part went, but I heard it was just moving your hand in time to music. And after that, more people were let go and some people were kept for more (I'd assume more difficult) dancing (and again, I got these 2 from my friend- she stayed for both). So that is how the audition went. 1 thing to remember- do not practice while the groups are going. One of the audition people actually asked people to stop practicing. So keep that in mind- it's rude, and distracting. And for those auditioning, good luck!

Thanks!
The website says you must be enrolled as either a full-time or part-time college student and have completed atleast one semester.

Waiting...

Hey guys.

I'm new to the forum and right now am waiting to hear back from Disney! I auditioned last week in Ann Arbor and apparently my audition went well because they'd like me to be a character performer! I did my interview and right now I am waiting to hear back! As you can tell I'm really excited and hoping everything works out.

Is anyone out there trying to go Fall '06? Let me know, because that's when I'm shooting for!

Bear with me as I try to figure out how this whole forum thing actually works!

~Holly~

Hi Holly. Welcome to Disboards. I too auditioned to be a character (in Boston). Unfortunately, I didn't get the character performer role, but I am still waiting to see if I was accepted (hopefully character attendant or operations). Good luck!

Where should I go?

Hey guys-

I have a question for you experienced ones out there. I'm graduating this coming fall, and hoping to do the Disney College Program next spring. The only problem is that in the fall, I will be doing my internship at home (south Florida) and not at school (Tallahassee), so I will not be able to attend any audition stuff at my school- most likely.

Would I be able to attend the presentation/ interview/auditions at another school in south Florida? Or should I just try and go to Orlando? I sort of feel like Orlando might be pretty crowded, and maybe I'd have a better chance elsewhere.

Has anyone done their audition (to be a character performer) or interview in Orlando? Or do you think I may be able to go to another school? I'd appreciate any help! Thanks!

you can attend any audition, as long as you watch/attend the presentation and have the interview.

Hey MissHolly and welcome to the boards! Congrats on your acceptance as a Character Performer, that is amazing!

I am going down for Fall '06, and so are a lot of the people here. If you search through some of the old threads you'll find quite a few. It's going to be great!

So is anyone doing the new Summer first-time CP? I signed up for that one since it was all my schedule could handle.

Anyway, just had my interview on Monday.

I have to go in a week and a half. I am really nervous. Besides trying to stay relaxed and being yourself, is there anything I should know? Are there any really tough questions that I should know about beforehand?

Man!!! Its been a week since i sent in my application...Please just send a letter telling me yes or no, I just cant wait anymore...

I have worked my self in a frenzy to go now, I am standing at the door waiting for the mail man for the past 3-4 days....

But I do have a quick question...

I marked Lifeguard/operations/hopper/recreation and quick food bev, do you think this helps or hurts i didnt mark more? Looking back , i wish i had marked merchandise just to make sure i covered most of the bases to just make sure i am accepted anywhere.

woo!

It's been exactly 2 weeks and 2 days from my interview and I have received my acceptance packet! I am going for the summer program and I'm going to be doing the custodial role! The only thing I'm nervous about is cleaning bathrooms.... but I'm excited about all the "guest interaction" they say you get. Hopefully I'll be in one of the 4 major parks. I'm so pumped! Anyone else going for the summer??

Hi Janet,
I hope to be there in the summer too! Just about a week until I should hear. I requested QSFB but we will see where Casting thinks I belong I guess!
