disneydaydreamer23: Girlfriend, don't let anything get you down! I didn't think in a million years that I would get to an audition as convenient and close to home as mine was... I live in Kansas for goodness sake... but along came an audition in Dallas (practically my mom's backyard!), the SAME weekend I had planned to be down there. Although nothing came out of it, I knew that the dream was no longer out of reach, and it still isn't for you, my dear! As far as heights go, I am just barely 5'2" and the casting director measured me at exactly 5'3". Anything is possible! And if you present yourself in a confident manner and show them you are determined to make your dreams come true, they WILL help you out! Remember that just because they cut you doesn't mean they didn't like you or didn't notice you... it just means they didn't have a role open to fit your look. They very strongly reiterated that to my audition group. And as far as dancing goes, ours was pathetically easy! I wouldn't worry about that unless you want to be a parade performer. I personally am going to try to take same dance classes though, mostly for my own peace of mind for my next audition. It can't hurt!
Keep checking the audition calendar, especially when they are casting for the college program, since that's when they're out touring the country. You never know when they may be close to home, friend!
But most of all, (and I say this not only to you, but to everyone here) don't make yourself sick over this! I know you must want this as badly as the next Disney girl (or boy); I am the same way. But don't, don't, don't let this be the center of your life for now! I let it get to that point, and realized that it's just not worth the trouble. This kind of thing is a long-term goal, and not something to beat yourself up about. Don't forget that every great story comes with trial and error, ours included. Just the fact that you have a dream to make magic as a character at Disney, and that you are pursuing it makes you a special kind of person. So go crazy! Do the things you want to do... we are young! Pick up those extra experiences that may help you reach that Disney goal, somewhere down the line. Take dance classes, practice your princess poses... But take your eyes off of that destination for a while and enjoy the journey, have FUN, BE your OWN character. You don't have do work at Disney to bring a little extra magic into this world. That's the kind of person whom I think deserves a job at Walt Disney World.
