Disney Online Casting Auditions Have Been Extended

By | May 1, 2016

Disney is giving young actors a few more days to get their audition videos in!

A few weeks ago The Official Disney Channel / Disney XD open casting call was announced and this year, they went online. For the first time ever, Disney was holding online auditions allowing talented kids from all over the country to try out for a coveted role in one of Disney Channels new shows or movies. The open call was not without it’s problems. Minutes after going live, kids, teens and their parents were all complaining that they were unable to upload their audition videos. Not sure if the company experienced technical issues or the app was just overloaded, but many folks were unable to get their auditions in by the deadline of the 6th. Seems Disney heard the complaints and has now extended their official online casting for a few more days. The new deadline, as of now, is the 10th of the month. Talent now has a few more days to upload the videos that they were unable to a few days back.

This has been updated! Disney Channel has announced an open call this month in L.A. See Tryout for The Disney Channel – Open Auditions Announced. They also are holding online video auditions for teens nationwide, see Online Disney Channel Auditions for 2016.

The deadline to submit was only extended by a few days, so talent interested in the opportunity needs to rush it. Don’t wait for the last minute, as parents are still reporting that uploading the finished audition videos is still not going smoothly and may take quite a few tries. If you are having problems with it, you are not alone. You can check out the discussion about it here. Also, the FB post about this has a good amount of input from people who were successful in uploading their videos. A few people did mention that converting the video file to an MP4 format on their computer and then uploading the MP4, seemed to work.

This will be the first year that the annual Disney casting call will be open, online and accepting video submissions.

  2. Mehluko Dlamini

    Hi my name is Mehluko Dlamini. I’m a 13 year old from Africa. All my life I wanted to be an actor but I was always looked down upon. I really want to prove to my family and Africans that any young girl from Africa can act in a Disney channel show. I might be an African but I can act, good at mathematics and drawing. Even when I can’t sing or dance I still believe in myself that an African can act in one of disney channel shows. Please try to give me a chance to act at only one role. I’m from South Africa.

    Yours gratefully
