Disney Channel Auditions and Tryouts 2013

2013 will bring a new crop of Disney Channel shows and hopefully some new Disney Channel and Disney XD stars. Have you always wanted to tryout for the Disney Channel, well read on.

Disney Channel Tryouts 2013

Are you the next big Disney Channel star? You just may be and are looking to be discovered. Well, Disney Channel and their casting team go on the lookout for new talent and every year the Disney casting team holds tryouts and casting calls for new talent.


Every kid and teen dreams of becoming the next big Disney Channel singing, dancing and acting sensation. Why not? Those are great dreams and aspirations. Who wouldn’t want the fame and fortune? If you sing, dance and act, yes, a triple threat, you too may have a chance at the big time because Disney does open casting calls for new talent yearly.


About once a year, the Disney team announces an open casting call in a city in the United States. Not necessarily New York or Los Angeles, but other, smaller cities such as Austin Texas.

These auditions for Disney bring together 1000’s of kids, tweens, and teens to tryout for casting directors. Usually, the casting directors do not say exactly what project they are casting for and just want to see the talent that comes out.

It is the only official Disney open casting call they do and there is never a charge for it. In 2012 it was held in May. The 2013 Disney auditions have not been announced yet but in previous years they have been held in the spring and announced a few weeks prior to the tryouts taking place. Last year the open call was held in Kansas City on May 26th.

The last call was searching for talented kids and teens who were 10 to 18 years of age who could act, sing and dance.

These annual tryouts give talented youth, who do not live in Los Angeles a chance to meet with Disney representatives and show them what they can do and their ‘star’ quality. Some big Disney stars have been discovered at these Disney Tryouts. Selena Gomez was scouted at an event in 2004. Selena Gomez went on to become a huge Disney Channel sensation who appeared in a hit show, had multiple guest spots on other shows in the Disney Channel lineup and even had parts in movies.

Adding to their line up of already hit shows such as “Shake it Up”, “Austin and Ally”, “Good Luck Charlie” and “A.N.T Farm”, in 2012 Disney announced new shows which include Gravity Falls, Code: 9, Dog With a Blog

In 2013 the channel announced another show to be premiering soon, Wander Over Yonder.

Disney also casts for upcoming Disney movies, here are some Disney movies that will be cast and shot shortly, to be released in 2013 and 2014.

  • National Treasure 3
  • Jungle Cruise
  • Maleficent
  • The Good Dinosaur
  • Monsters University
  • Lone Ranger
  • Oz: The Great and Powerful
  • 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo
  • Tink
  • Magic Kingdom
  • Phineas and Ferb Movie
  • McFarland
  • The Hill
  • Frozen

Hopefully, more shows are also in the works and the new 2013 / 2014 shows need stars, supporting roles and many extras.

Unfortunately the Disney tryouts are done in person which means that you and your family would need to travel to where they announce the location will be, usually a large convention center. They do not do online auditions or take submissions by email.

If you are planning to attend one of these large events in hopes of getting discovered then you must make arrangements ahead of time to travel to the city. Having a parent present is a requirement and kids will not be seen unless they are with a parent or guardian.

Many families even try to make a small vacation out of these events by booking hotel rooms for longer than the auditions to take advantage of being in a new city.

During the Disney tryouts expect huge crowds, remember many people travel from out of town to audition. Most kids get about a minute in front of the casting directors so you really need to wow them and wow them quickly. Remember there will be a lot of competition and you really need to stand out in a crowd of 1000’s.

So remember, the open tryouts should be coming up real soon. Everyone can attend for free and all you have to do is keep your eyes open for the date and of course, ‘break a leg’ to get noticed by the casting director!

Check back often to find out when the Disney auditions for 2013 will be held and where. You can check out last years (2012) Disney Tryouts for more information.

  1. Andrew Sims

    Why hello, Disney! My name is Andrew T. Sims, and I would love to work on Dog With a Blog. I’m 11, and I want to be as creative as possible so you might consider me! I have learned of drama, acting, singing and improv at Learning Foundation and Preforming Arts School for at least 8 years and had always loved the idea of acting. When I’m on the stage, I feel and preform like I am the character. In my later years, I’ve been an Choir and continue to act and dance on stage. I’ve moved from many different places preforming at different large school districts and festivals.
    I weigh 128 pounds and I’m about 6’5? in height, with short, brown hair.

    Thank you for considering me for Dog With a Blog!

  13. tanushka

    I live in India but I really want a audition on Disney, unluckily they have auditions in India. Are we allowed to send audition tapes to Disney? I’ve modeled for small companies like weekenders and Cherokee. My mom worked for them. We have acting classes and music classes in our school. We put on a play at the end of the year, this year we did Macbeth. I do state level gymnastics, I love the shows and I hope to get an audition some day.

  14. Maya

    Hey! My name is Maya and I love acting. I was in a play called the Secret Garden and we had to audition, it was at my local theater. It was very fun and we sang, danced and acted. I sing and I used to try to play the guitar but didn’t quite get it, but hey there’s always next time right? I am not shy when I get to meet you and I get comfortable pretty easily. To me I am caring and fun. I like hanging out with my friends and going to the mall. My friends and I like to be silly when we are around each other and are fun people when we are together. The only reason God didn’t make us sisters is because our parents couldn’t handle us. I love disney channel and nickelodeon, but I really love disney channel. My favorite shows right now on Disney channel is Dog with a Blog and Good Luck Charlie and Liv and Maddie and Shake it up. My life long dream is to be a actress or a model but mostly a actress.

  15. Ashley

    Hi! My name is Ashley I a funny, creative, and loving 12 year old girl! It has always been my dream to be on the disney channel, and be part of the experience that all the disney stars talk about. I don’t really think of acting as “acting” I think of it as more of seeing the world through another persons eyes, and I think that is just the coolest thing. I have light brown hair with some auburn and light highlights ( that’s all natural). I have a slim figure, hazel eyes, and I am light skinned. I definitely envy Kristen Stewart as an actor for her films in the twilight saga which I adored and still continue to. I am up for the whole 9-yards of being a disney star! I want to be on one of the many heartwarming funny disney channel shows. Also i will be in any movie, i am wanted to be in. I love to hang out with my friends in my free time! And i do competition dance which i have been doing for 6 years and i have been dancing for 9 years. I compete in tap, jazz, hip-hop and this is my first year with a tap solo, where I play a nerd in it. I also do 2 ballet classes a week and perform in 2 ballet dances in our annual recital as well as my other competitive dances. Tap is definitely my strength in dance and I just love it! If someone were to ask me if I am a good actor I would say no, but only because I don’t see it as acting. I see it as simply living through another persons eyes, and kinda jumping into their life and experiencing all the events that take place. I am so fun, loving, (friends call me a bit crazy!) and I am a creative little girl. I am up for it 1000%.
    Thank you for your time.

    I love to act, sing, dance, you name it! I always put 110% into everything I do to ensure success and I love to express the importance of dedication.
    Thank you for your time and consideration!

    I’m twelve yrs old and I was born to act. I eat sleep and dream acting. I do drama at school and I won superior at district. I had experience with casting hub and passed both auditions but due to financial issues I could not do it.
