:mickey: Hi, I am new here. And I am proud to meet you all.

I wish for you Cast members to answer my questions. I will be auditioning like in a couple of weeks to work in Disney.

1) I heard you have to be 16 to work there. I know it is true, but can 16 year olds try out for Disney characters?

2)   :depp: Can you go inside the Casting Place (In front of Downtown Disney)
to ask them questions on jobs for Disney?

3)  Which are the tall Disney characters of Walt Disney World?
for heights such as 5'5-5'7? I heard Timon and Pluto

:santa: Hope ur christmas turns Swell!!

Yoo Hoo, Mickey7!

Welcome to the Disney Echo! I apologize that it says you've had 0 posts here... That's the kind of database error that will be fixed when I complete the software upgrade going on now here at the Disney Echo. But here's a pair of Disney EchoEars for you as my thanks for joining:

I'm not a current cast member, but I am a past one, so I may be able to help you with a couple of your questions.
I do not know about the age requirement for characters, but you most definately can go into the casting center (alias the ugly plaid castle) anytime you want to ask about open positions. I believe they even have a listing of some of the open hourly/part-time positions open.

You can add Goofy to your list of tall characters. I am 6'0 and tried out for him once!  :Oo:

Good luck! And welcome from me!  :santa:

Unfortunately, between 5'5" and 5'7" there aren't a lot of options, character-wise. Timon is usually between 5'2" and 5'4", as are Chip and Dale and Pluto.

I will call a couple of friends tonight and find out what heights you do qualify for!

Reading all this is fun! What are the usual height requirements for which characters?
