How to Audition for Disney

Become a singer, actor or dancer for Disney!

Many people want to work for Disney as performers and entertainers. Before landing that dream job, you will have to find an audition since most entertainment jobs for Disney are booked through a Disney casting director or casting team.

Disney hires entertainers of all kinds. Disney produces 100’s of shows across the world. Disney shows are large productions and need many performers.

Type of performers needed:

  • Singers
  • Dancers
  • Clowns
  • Variety acts
  • Musicians
  • Bands
  • Drivers
  • Gymnasts and tumblers
  • Circus acts
  • Animal acts
  • People in Disney character costumes
  • Stunt men and women
  • Swimmers
  • and much more

Disney produces live shows for their parks, cruises and other attractions.

They use performers in their parks and resorts, here is a partial list of some of their parks:

  • Disneyland Anaheim
  • Disney’s California Adventure
  • Magic Kingdom
  • Epcot Center
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom
  • Disneyland Park Paris
  • Walt Disney Studios Park Paris
  • Tokyo Disneyland
  • Tokyo DisneySea
  • Hong Kong Disneyland
  • Shanghai Disneyland Park

Disney holds auditions for their parks all over the world. If you want to work in Disneyland Tokyo, you will not need to go to Tokyo to audition. Disney casting directors recruit talent from all over the world for attractions in other parts of the world. For example, there may be auditions in Los Angeles for Singers to go to Tokyo.

Besides the Disney Parks and Resorts, Disney also hires 1000’s of performers for the Disney Cruise line and their National touring shows such as Mary Poppins, Disney on Ice and the Lion King.

The shows at the parks and on the cruises are huge production. They rival those on Broadway.

Disney posts most of their casting calls online at the Disney site. You can click here to see that list.

    This is my favorite show and it would be a dream come true if I could be on disney. I really love everybody on the disney channel and I would love to act with them. Sabrina C, Rowan B and Carrie Underwood are my inspirations. She has always been an inspiration to me and she is just so talented that it would be so amazing to work with her. I really want to be on this show because acting is my passion and my dream. I know that the chance of me getting this opportunity is like 1 in a million but I know that I should still try.
    I look forward to speaking with you soon.
