Are you thinking of auditioning for a Disney show and are wondering what to expect from the Disney audition process? Disney auditions are always closed. What that means is that you go there alone to audition. Leave the cheerleaders and moral support at home. If you must bring someone with you, they will be asked to wait outside.
Here is the run down of what to expect at a Disney audition below.
All Disney auditions are closed auditions. This means that we don’t allow anyone into the audition room who is not auditioning.
While we understand the important role the support of friends and family play in every performer’s life, the audition is one place you must go on your own. If someone does accompany you to an audition, they will be asked to wait in the holding area of the audition venue.
A place to check in
There will always be a Cast Member to help you check in and answer some basic questions about how the audition will run. This Cast Member will record your name and the time you arrived, and take your Headshot & Resume or give you an Audition Application form to fill out. Make sure to arrive early in order to give yourself time to check in and fill out the paperwork.
Keeping to the clock
We’re a very time conscious bunch. We’ll do our very best to keep the audition running on time, but we need your help in order to do that. It’s very important that you arrive in plenty of time to complete your check-in and ready yourself for a great audition. Generally speaking, this means at least 15 minutes before your scheduled audition time.
If it’s your first time to a particular audition location, please plan enough travel time to navigate an unfamiliar place.
The audition room
Walking into the main audition room can be intimidating… but stay cool and have fun with it. Remember that we’re people too, and we’re quite happy that you came to audition for us. Keep your confidence and come right on in!
Your audition will be run by a Disney Casting Director. As you enter the audition room we’ll do our best to introduce ourselves, and give you a few instructions to help you through the audition.
The room setup will vary based on the type of audition you’re attending. It may be a small rehearsal hall with just a few Casting Directors, or a large facility with several people for a group audition. Either way, be sure to listen to any instructions that are given, and do your best!
