Or are they done by makeup/costuming specialists? Like Anastasia or Drizella, does she do all that makeup herself before going out on stage?
    They teach you how to do it... and I thik you get hep the first few times then after that its all you.

    When an audition is just for character look alikes do they do both dance and animation? I heard those auditons are much more simple than the character look alike/character performer.

    Hey,
    So how long of a wait did you have before they called you and said you were hired?

    I'd like to know this, too. The one I recently went to for WDW was for character lookalikes/character performers, and the very first thing they did was have us dance, and I tanked :P I'll be taking jazz dance lessons for the future, but I too was curious as to whether or not auditions just for character lookalikes were less dance-intensive.
    Also, I'm considering trying out for DLR when auditions there roll around again, and I was wondering if the audition process is similar. I know they keep their auditions much more separate--face, fuzzy, etc-- so if I went to a face audition there, would there be a lot of dancing involved, or would it be more of a thing where they're concerned mostly with what you look like and your overall energy?

    Re: Disney Face Character Auditions

    DLR is much more specific. If you go to a character look alike audition you'll be there with like 900 other people lol and they will take you into a room in groups of 75-100 look at you closely talk to you and then keep maybe 5 out of that group. If you make it past that part they will have you fill out a form that asks about your experience dancewise and whatnot so if you're not a dancer they would probably pull you aside to act a little bit in your character. Fuzzies is all acting. They definitely care about what you look like and are by far the pickiest about their face characters.

    Re: Disney Face Character Auditions

    Thanks for the info! I love how much I've learned on here.
    Yeah, I've read that DLR is super-picky about their face characters. Darn that :P (I know, it's a good thing, because it means they're committed to making the characters as accurate as possible. But frustrating all the same!)
    I actually just had a consultation with my dentist yesterday, and there is No. Way. I can afford at this time to have the things done that apparently would need to be done. I don't know if it's even worth it, since my teeth aren't repulsive, they're just not perfect. Soooo...

    I've mentioned Snap-On Smiles earlier in this thread. They're designed by dentists to just go on over your regular teeth, and you can take them out and put them in whenever you want. And they are thousands of dollars cheaper. Has anyone else had any experience with anything like this? Do you think it would be a bad idea, like I'm trying to hide something (which, of course, I am!)? The pictures I've seen look pretty natural, but I would worry about them looking too perfect and fake. And of course my biggest concern would be if the Disney people would be okay with it if they were to realize I was wearing one. I wouldn't want to get into trouble or anything. I just want to work at Disney, and if I have to have perfect teeth to do it, that's my only option.

    Re: Disney Face Character Auditions

    Hey everyone! I'm back. How exactly does the six month policy work? For example, if I auditioned for strictly face characters in April, would I be ineligible for a a parade performer audition next week? Any answers would me much appreciated, thank you!

    I made sure that my second audition was after six months nearly to the day, but they never checked. Don't quote me on that though, because I don't know if they just forgot to the day I auditioned. But I'm pretty sure you'd be alright.

    Really? When I went to my WDW audition, they checked everyone to make sure they hadn't auditioned within the last six months. They even sent one guy home because it had been only five months since his last character audition. Maybe it differs depending on who's running it that day, or something. But it was a very big deal when I was there.

    As for the face characters vs the one just for parade movers, I don't know if they're considered different enough that you need to wait six months. I'd email them about that, just to be safe.

    Haha yeah that's probably true, I bet my people just forgot. So...maybe you shouldn't risk it/ waste your money and time.

    Re: Disney Face Character Auditions

    was anyone at the hong kong audition on the 4th in hollywood? I went and it wasnt what i expected at all!!! It was a look alike audition and they said in hong kong you dont dance at all. the first thing we did was dance and we only did it 5 times then we performed it and since im not a dancer it was very hard for me to pick it up that fast. it wasnt broken down at all and i had no idea how i was suppose to learn it. I am a very confident person but that situation seemed so impossible to do my best when we were not even taught anything. they did ask if we had any questions but i was so confused i had no idea what to ask. it seemed like we were being judged while we were going through the dance. there were about 50 girls there and most of them learned it easily and seemed like a handful of people like me were lost. so apparently it was simple for people with a dance backround. by the way it was all princess movements because they were casting for all those characcters. I feel very confused about the experiece...it wasnt bad but wasnt good only because i wish some of the moves were broken down so i can learn it and remember. I can see how it would be easy for anyone with a dance backround. I am wondering if i should take bali or something. any advice so I am not so clueless next time?

    also online it didnt say you needed a headshot and resume and even when i emailed casting they said i didnt need one. i brought one anyway and they were asking for them. always bring one. i also noticed that alot of people had their first and last name on their headshot.

    When I went to a character audition, I noticed that most of the dance moves were more jazz based than ballet. I've been dancing for about fifteen years now and I have bounced around from style to style so I can honestly say that it was mostly jazz in the dances.
