If you are applying for the DCP with the intention of being a character performer here is a useful tip for you. When you go through the WEB based interview and you have to specify your top THREE role choices DO NOT put Character Performer as one of them, here is why… You have to audition to become a character performer, that in it self is you expressing interest in it, during the phone interview tell your interviewer that you are planning to attend an audition (mention the city & date) and that will suffice. Remember that the interviewer has NO control over giving you a job as a Character Performer, they can however interview you on any other role you could apply for within the program. I would put 3 choices down OTHER than character performer so you have a better shot of being accepted into the program, even if you don’t pass the audition (remember you can always audition during your program) you will still get to experience the DCP and all of its magical glory.
For example- I was accepted into my CP as a custodian, but I auditioned to be a character performer and was transferred into that role instead before I even arrived in FL. However if I wouldn’t have passed the audition the first time I could have still gone to WDW and attempted multiple other auditions, and enjoyed DCP life.
I hope this makes sense, and that I was able to help a future CP!
