Disneyland Paris Costume Sizes
« on: January 27, 2015, 02:35:18 AM »
I have been to multiple Disneyland auditions in London's Pineapple Dance Studios, and every single time I get turned away on the animation round. Feeling confused and curious about this, I decided to contact the casting director to ask his opinion on my auditions. He kindly filled me in on the issues surrounding my audition failures and the reason I am not able to be taken through to the next stage is because there are only a few character roles at my height that have a very specific body type.

Basically, I am around 5"8 (measured at 5"7 at the auditions for some strange reason) and my body build is stocky. So apparently I couldn't fit in to the costumes of the characters I could play. So what I was wondering is whether anybody on this forum knows what those character roles are? Maybe someone who has worked within the character and parade department before may know the answer? Or someone who happens to know a lot about the restrictions.

Many thanks in advance!

Thanks for that! Well that's the height they measure me but really I am 5"8-9. What characters can I play at those heights?

It's all a bit the same, you won't really get a different character position until 6"1.

Face = Charming, Eric, Naveen, Aladdin.
Fur = Tweedles, Gepetto, Green Army Man, Tigger,

Maybe it's a build issue as opposed to height

Yeah well it is a build issue because I have spoken to the casting director about it all and he told me that the characters I can play at my height would not work for me as I would struggle to fit inside the costumes due to me being stocky-build. So I don't know whether losing weight or not would help. If not then I guess that means I will never get through.
