Update 3/31/2016

Please be advised that all 2016 Fall and Fall Advantage character performer offers have been extended.

Those who were extended an offer to be a character performer will see this reflected on their dashboard.  Selected character performers who had already accepted another role will see notification that a new role is being extended to them.  Selected character performers who had only completed their telephone interview and had not yet been extended an offer will see notification of an offer.

If you do not see an offer letter for the character performer role on your dashboard, you were not selected.

Attempts were made to send a courtesy email to those not selected using the email address provided at the audition.  Depending on one’s email provider and settings, this email may have been delivered to a bulk/spam/promotion folder rather than the primary inbox.  Whether or not this email was received, if you attended an audition and do not see an offer for character performer on your dashboard at this time, you were not selected.

If you have already accepted an offer for a different role, please continue to visit the onboarding site and review arrival-related articles on this blog to continue your preparations for your arrival.

For those still waiting for a final update, all hiring decisions will be made by April 15, 2016.

Other items of note:

Current Disney College Program participants are typically not eligible to attend the character performer auditions listed on disneyauditions.com. If an audition is open to current participants, information will be communicated by the Housing Communications team in their weekly update email and various other means.

This fall, information on auditions for the 2017 Spring and Spring Advantage programs will be posted as it becomes available. Please visit disneyinternsinfo.com/cp.html to request to receive Disney College Program updates, including information about future audition opportunities.

Update 3/24/2016

Notification of audition results has begun. Please keep an eye on your email/dashboard over the next several weeks if you auditioned.  Not all results are communicated at the same time.

  • If selected to be a character performer
    This information will appear on the candidate dashboard
  • If not selected
    An attempt will be made to email these individuals using the email address a candidate provided at the audition. If a candidate did not provide a valid email address, this communication can not be delivered.The exception to this would be if someone is no longer being considered for any position on the Disney College Program (attractions, merchandise, custodial, etc.) “No Longer in Consideration” would appear on the dashboard.

Please do not email requesting an update on your individual audition results. Notification will be an ongoing process. It can take some time depending on where a candidate is in the process and the outcome of their audition.

Another update will be posted once all offers have been extended. If a candidate was not selected and did not receive an email, this final blog article update would serve as notification they were not selected.

Update 3/11/2016

All of the auditions for 2016Fall/Fall Advantage character performers have taken place.  Thanks goes out to the hundreds of people who attended the auditions.

Disney Creative Entertainment is now reviewing everyone in each height category and making their decisions.  Once they have finished, they will provide this information to Disney College Recruiting and notifications will begin.

This article will be updated when notifications have begun (estimation 2-3 weeks).

Does your heart beat for the stage? Disney cast members have the opportunity to be on stage all the time, making dreams come true for the young and young-at-heart. Our talented Disney performers have unique roles that immerse guests into a land of make-believe come-to-life.
