On the morning of April 21st, exactly four weeks after my audition, I received an email with this heading.
It read as follows:
"Congratulations! You passed your recent Walt Disney World® Character Audition and will be invited to participate in a Character Performer Role in the Disney College Program!!"
It went on to explain that my "Responsibilities may include: Portraying specific costumed character roles; working in hot, confining, heavy costumes with limited range of vision; communicating non-verbally to Guests; signing autographs and posing for photographs; and interacting with Guests outdoors and in dining establishments. Some participants may have the opportunity to perform in parade and/or puppeteer roles."
It did not give an specifics as to which character I would be "friends with" (this is the proper terminology I am told), but nonetheless I'm extremely excited.
Will update when I have more to report. In the meanwhile, have a magical day!
