    Male or female, 54-62, excellent hand-eye coordination, vigorous movement, ability to work in a confined space, various levels of skill
    Do you think its worth going or a waste of time if I have no experience?
    First it said "varied level of skill." Do you have good hand eye coordination? This is puppeteering, its not like a singing audition, where most people will be professionally trained. There might be some but its not quite as common of a hobby, so if you're a novice you probably won't be the only one. Sure if you worked at the Jim Henson studio or choreographed Avenue Q that would help but if you want to I'd say go! It can't hurt. And the more they see you at various auditions the better your chances each time. Supposing you get it then your chances of getting face later sky rocket as any casting director is more likely to pick someone they know has a good work ethic because they've worked with them over a stranger! You should go!

    The only characters I have ever seen speaking in another language is in Disneyland Paris, and they only speak French (and only certain characters speak live in French, like Gaston, while others are pre-recorded). I saw a video of an Anastasia who was able to read Spanish, but she never actually said anything to the person in Spanish. I know that other cast members can get a special pin that allows them to talk in another language, but they have to talk to a native speaker hired by Disney and pass a test before they're allowed to. I think it might depend on who you are playing (for example, since Beauty and the Beast is clearly set in France, it might be okay for Belle to speak French) and the situation.

    Ooh I don't know about Hong Kong or Tokyo! I know they use a lot of pre-recorded stuff for Tokyo but I'm not sure if the characters themselves speak/are recorded speaking in Japanese or Chinese. I know in order to audition for Disneyland Paris you have to either speak French or English fluently. I just checked the auditions website and it doesn't specify a language requirement for Hong Kong and they're not holding auditions for Tokyo, but I would think it would be the same process (talking to a native speaker). Having some working knowledge of the language would definitely be helpful though so you can navigate while living there! I would suggest looking up videos online of characters in those parks to see if they talk in those languages. I've never watched any myself, I've only seen some from Paris and the US, but that would definitely give you an idea of what is and what is not acceptable for the characters to say while in character in the parks.

    Re: Disney Face Character Auditions

    ^ I recall from the old Disney on Parade at HKDL, that Alice is voiced by a Cantonese voice actress and the face character, usually(!) caucasian, lip-synched the lines.

    In a related story, last year I was at Epcot and I met Belle outside the French Pavilion. When I approached her I said "Bonjour Mme Belle, comment allez-vous?" and that caught her off-guard a bit. She replied that the provincial town she is from only speaks English, and we continued our conversation in English. I feel bad for her afterwards because what I said was one of the only French phrases I know. And then when I think about it, a better explanation from Belle next time may be the provincial town she's from uses a very different French dialect, so it's better to stick with English.

    Re: Disney Face Character Auditions

    At both Hong Kong and Tokyo, the characters only spoke English. I would assume that they would know at least a few phrases from living in the country, but they never spoke it that I saw. They just had a character host who translated if need be.

    Re: Disney Face Character Auditions

    Hi everyone!

    I'm thinking about auditioning in the Hong Kong Disneyland open call for Female Disney Character Look-Alikes that is happening in California on June 3rd (or 4th) - however, I have a quick question! From the Disney Auditions website, it states:

    Females, 4'11" - 5'7", are needed to portray Disney princesses and heroines from the following Disney animated features: Alice in Wonderland, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and Tinker Bell. There are no male roles available at this time.

    I am quite short - 5'3 and would really only fit into one role - one of the Disney Fairies - Silvermist in particular. However, would they be auditioning for the fairies or only Tinkerbell specifically? I haven't seen a Silvermist face character in any Hong Kong Disneyland photos (or any of the other fairies for that matter), so if they're only auditioning for Tinkerbell, I sadly won't be able to participate.

    If anyone knows, that would be great! Thanks everyone.

    Re: Disney Face Character Auditions

    Hong Kong is a smaller park and Disney is not as big of a deal there. That's why they only need female characters because there's less demand for as many characters. I would iimagine they are casting Alice, Belle, Cinderella, Aurora, Snow White and Tink because the tinkerbell movie is a straight to DVD movie. But then again the page said animated features and listed tinkerbell as a movie rather than say peter pan so who knows. I doubt the other fairies would be in such high demand and I imagine silvermist would not be so hard to come by in Hong Kong... But this is all just guessing. It can't hurt to go. Even if you get cut the more you audition the better your chances. And auditioning is FUN! I'd say if you live nearby then go if nothing else just for the experience. I'm thinking of going too! Maybe I'll see you there

    Oh no! Well, thank you for the very well thought out response. Auditioning is very fun! I attended one audition before and made it all the way until the end. (They kept us there for quite awhile - 8amish - 7pm!) but this was a couple of years ago. I do want to go, but I fit a very specific, narrow role unfortunately and if they are not casting for it, I don't fit other roles (I'm asian.)

    They do have Mulan in the park, and she spoke in unaccented English, so there is a chance that you could get hired for that.

    They have different height requirements too so you might be tall enough for Mulan But again I imagine if they were casting for her they would have listed that movie as well. But again who know Mulan/silvermist is not listed as a cruise character but when I went to the cruise audition they pulled an asian girl for a face character. So maybe...?

    Re: Disney Face Character Auditions

    Hi everyone! I've been MIA lately, mostly because I've felt that I know everything, but one thing did come up while considering to audition or not - do the face characters have eye makeup that they have to do themselves? Or are they done by makeup/costuming specialists? Like Anastasia or Drizella, does she do all that makeup herself before going out on stage?

    i think its a good idea to email your questions to them. I think its [email protected]. Im pretty sure or you can email the hong kong disney at [email protected]. Im not sure if thats exactly right. The disney land email got back to me the same day and hong kong got back to be within a few days. Its the best way to get an exact answer to any of your concerns. Nothing on this website is for sure buts its good to get some idea about the audition process. If i were you i would email them directly to make sure you get the exact informatioon. I asked them if i could attend both auditions on june 4th and they said yes. Then i emailed disney land an d hong kong and asked if i needed to fill out an application or have a resume/picture ready for the auditions and they replied with no you dont need to bring anything. I might just in case its always best to be safe than sorry and its not like its hard to have it prepared. Make sure to check those emails first i dont think those exactly correct. If you dont find them online i will double check my email to get you the right ones. Let me know if you would like them.
