    Re: Disney Face Character Auditions

    Hahah I remember watching Disneyland: Secrets, Stories, and Magic. It showed the video of the mickey with the weird mouth and It was so creepy! I think it was on the day of the opening of Disneyland.

    So, is anyone going to the upcoming face auditions at DLR?

    ANYWAY, I've recently had a renewed interest in becoming a furry (or "atmosphere character" as they're apparently called).

    i think the dance is the sort of thing they'd learn for parades..it's not complicated and you have alot of time to learn it , also for fuzzies..hmm... i think 4'10-5' - duck height..5'-5'2 is mouse, 5'2-5'4 is chipmunk..don't know about 5'4-5'8..i think 6'-6'3 is goofy and jafar and genie..i don't know if thats fully correct .
    you should look at other threads this question has came up alot.
    also why don't they have a march hare at disneyland??


    i'd love to be in the princess tiana shoboat jubilee, or princess fantasy faire..they look amazing!

    Actually, you don't really dance at the Fuzzie auditions, and they are a lot more fun then the Face and Parade auditions.

    Wrong.

    Spoiler

    mice and ducks are friends with each other. Pluto is 5'5-5'8. Tigger is around 5'10.

    What? Do you work in Walt Disney World?

    Being a Fuzzie isn't as simple as fitting the costume. The Fuzzie auditions are a lot more fun, however, they do test your imagination, comprehension, comfort ability, and energy level.

    Once again, I don't know how it works at Walt Disney World, it could be as simple as fitting the costume...

    They want to make sure you know what you're getting yourself into, and understand what they're talking about.

    They want people with high energy levels, you need to be able to work for 30 minutes straight without dieing out, so they'll be keeping an eye out for people they just don't think will be able to keep up with the demands of the job.

    Yes, I work at WDW. But after you pass the audition, it is as simple as fitting.

    Job wise. Some people come in and are blow away with how much energy they'll use for a simple 30 minute set; that goes for Face as well, you might think it's easy to do, however some can't stay in character for for 10, let alone 30 minutes

    Yes, but that's true for any character, anywhere, for any role... They'll measure you before anything else. I think Luke Manning was talking about the audition itself.

    Yes. Characters like Alice and Hatter are out longer then characters like Mickey and Pooh (with exception to dining).

    Yes, that's right.

    Re: Disney Face Character Auditions

    Oh my gosh, I love the old costume pictures!!! Eeeep, Mickey was very scary back then. Wouldn't want to give old Mickey a big hug! =P The Snow White with the real hair was just awkward. =P She was even wearing her personal jewelery! I think the caliber of Disneyland characters has really improved. I mean, they're flawless nowadays! But I adored the old Cinderella and the Alice! I think it's funny how the old fuzzies used to have giant heads, like they were built to look like actual cartoons. Odd choice! I prefer the new outfits a lot better Much more accurate to the films and so much more beautiful!

    Back to auditions, though. =) There are some coming up, aren't there? How exciting! I wish I were old enough! To everyone who attends: break a leg!

    About the height requirements: I think the aforementioned fuzzy heights are correct. But I'm pretty sure they've recently been a lot more lenient with the face character sizes! When I went to Disneyland in June, my friend and I met a Belle who was a good 4-5 inches taller than us in her character shoes (which add maybe 2 inches?). We're pretty tall- 5'3 and 5'5- and we were just amazed! I think, that especially for the princesses, they are becoming a lot easier on height. That particular Belle was gorgeous and so friendly and fit Belle so well that I'm sure they overlooked her height. I think that everyone shouldn't worry too much in that regard. If you're just what they're looking for and are perfect for the job, they'll probably overlook a few inches! =)

    Hey, Olivia! Back from camp! =)

    It's 30 on 30 off, for all Characters, face or fuzzie (at the Disneyland Resort, and for the Character Department, not Parades). During your time on stage, you need to make sure you're in full character at all times (voice, actions, disposition, everything). Just as if you were in a stage show, you're not allowed to drop character simply to wave at your friends.
