Official Disney Channel and XD Auditions

If you are looking to be seen by a Disney casting director, here is your big chance. The Disney Channel and Disney XD have announced their official casting call and audition for projects that are coming up this year and in 2015.

There is an update for this year, 2014, see the bottom!

Every year, the Disney Channel hosts one or 2 cattle calls for upcoming projects. Casting directors hold an event to meet with potential new child stars and their parents. The first such event has just been announced and it will be held in Kansas City at the Kansas City Convention Center on May 26, 2012.

2012 / 2013 Disney Casting

These open calls are not meant to fill any specific role or none that that they wish to release, they are designed to scout new, young talent that they can later cast into their new shows, pilots and original movies that are in the works.


These annual cattle calls give hopefuls who do not live in Los Angeles a chance to meet with Disney representatives and show them their talents. In 2004, Selena Gomez was scouted at one of these events and she went on to become a huge Disney Channel star that appeared in multiple Disney projects, shows and movies.

Last year this event was held in Austin Texas and a second event was held in Richmond. For 2012, Kansas City is the only one that has been announced so far and we do not know if there are plans for a second one later this year.

Here is the Disney Open Casting Call 2012 Information:

Event Date:
Saturday, May 26, 2012

Event Time:
9AM to 3PM

Audition Location:
Kansas City Convention Center
301 West 13th Street
Kansas City, MO 64105

The Disney Talent search is for kids and teenagers who are 10 to 18 years of age or at least appear to be within that age group. Representatives are looking for kids and teens who can act, sing and dance to be considered for upcoming shows and as guest stars in existing shows such as ‘Pair of Kings”, “Dog with a Blog”, “So Random”, “Austin & Ally”, “Bits and Pieces” and many others.

Please note that all kids must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and those that are not, will not be able to audition.

What to expect at the Disney audition

  • When you get there there will be a long line to wait in. Historically, 1000’s of families attend these cattle calls and there will be very long lines to wait in. To make sure that you have a chance to be seen, make sure to arrive as early to the opening time as possible.
  • Once you arrive and register, you will be given a 1 page application form that will serve as a sort of resume. You will need to provide information such as where you live, how to contact you, Your experience in acting, dance and music. Any special training you have received in acting, dance or singing.  Also, if you have an agent, you will need to provide contact information for your agent or manager.
  • You will also be given a monologue that you will be expected to do for the casting directors and representatives that you see. The monologue will be short. Last year people reported that the entire audition took about a minute.
  • You may be there all day, so be sure to pack a few snacks and anything you may need to be there for hours.
  • As always, There is never any kind of fee for the official Disney auditions. The only fee that you will need to cover will be your parking and parking at the convention center will be $10.

Please also note that many families arrive from out of town and if you need a room for the night, you should probably reserve that as soon as you can.

Again, there is NO fee – this is the Official Disney tryout where you will meet with Disney reps and talent scouts that are looking for new talent.

Disney has also announced a few new series that are in the works for 2012

  • Gravity Falls – set for the summer of 2012
  • Code 9 – set for the summer of 2012
  • Dog with a Blog – set for the fall of 2012

If there is a second event that becomes scheduled later in 2012, we will update this page to keep you updated.

The 2014 and 2015 Disney Channel Auditions for Kids have been announced! This year, they are looking for talented kids between the ages of 10 and 17, check out the below link for the latest update.

  33. Annette Tapia

    Hi, my name is Annette Tapia. I’m 15 years old and I would love to become a part of Disney Channel. I’ve always thought of how cool it would be to be on a show and be an actress. Over the years this thought has turned into a dream and something I actually plan on achieving. I think Disney Channel would be an excellent start to my career. I love to act and sing. I may not be the best at both, but I sure put my heart and effort into them. Somethings I notice about myself is that I have the ability to adapt to any situation, I’m a fast learner, and I memorize things easily. (For example: Lines or scripts) I’ve been in four school plays. In the fifth grade I liked to memorize poems and recite them to the class and I was part of a puppet show. But I like trying new things and challenges. And acting on a Disney Channel show would sure be a challenge that I would like to face and achieve! I hope you guys consider me and I hope I hear from you soon! Thank you (:
