Okay, so I went to a fur/face character audition, and I'd thought I'd share my experience. If you dig around, you can find all of this information, but this is a recent audition, and I thought I'd combine it all together for anyone that was interested. This was like my 7th audition for Disney. I've been to everything from face, to DCP auditions, to equity dance. I had never made it so far as to the second round, except for my CP auditions, where a large percentage did in comparison to most auditions. At this particular audition (animated costume and face, open to the general public), there were more than 300 people, guys and girls. They did the usual; stand in line, write your name, get a number, get measured, wait type thing. By the way, prepare to be measured about an inch shorter than what you are. I was in the second group, which was early for me. Usually I'm in the last (I'm not an early person, haha). They took us in in groups of 70. For this particular audition, they taught us the basic dance, and then made a cut. I almost cried when I was one of the 14 names from my group chosen to move on. After all the big groups went, there were 60 of us left over. We waited in a separate room and filled out some paperwork. From there, they told us to work on two animation scenarios. We also learned a longer, slightly more difficult dance (still easy if you're a dancer). The first group they called to perform were people they were looking at for face eligibility (I think they kept like 4 of them). They then took the rest us in groups of 6 and had us perform it twice in front of the casting director. The casting director then called my number and told me to stay. Everyone else he told to check their emails, they might hear back anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months. After that cut, there were 8 of us. We performed that dance again on video tape. Then the director told all the girls (four of us) and one guy to stay. We learned another dance (much more balletic) and were told we were being looked at for parades and shows. We performed this dance twice on video as well. He told the five of us to check our emails for 2 weeks to 6 months and that was it! The whole process was about 5 hours. I was ecstatic to make it to the end after never making it past the first round! I'm a dancer, so obviously I'm hoping for a mover role (or really any, I'm not picky!), but they hadn't had any parade auditions since January. I just wish I knew what "2 weeks to 6 months" mean, and what the realistic probability of me getting hired is. Also, I'd like to know how long it usually takes to hear back. I've been trying for so long, and I'd truly love for my Disney dreams to finally come true.
