I went to a Disney Audition, and this is what happened...

September 22nd. Me and my friend Iva headed to Amsterdam to participate in the Disneyland Paris character auditions. It was one of the first cold days in September and the morning started with an extraordinary sunrise!

It was 07.00 am when I was waiting for the bus at the bus stop. The sun was just rising and it looked like it was going to be a magical day...

We (me and my friend Iva) arrived in Amsterdam at the Chassé Dance studios perfectly on time. We had to wait inside for a few minutes and then headed up upstairs where there was a huge place for all 250(!!!) of us to put down our stuff and move around. Most of us were in sports clothing. I was wearing some leggings and a loose t-shirt. I also brought my dance shoes!
We all got a number (mine was 568) and got measured. With our length details at the ready, we were asked to fill in a form about our availability. After half an hour we got shown a presentation about Disneyland Paris. All the magical details... Now it was time to start dancing and acting.

The whole group was asked to repeat what the casting director did, but we had to add our own style to it. We impersonated Mickey, a witch, a princess and a few other things. After this, all of us had to divide in groups of 10. I was in the 6th group (of probably 25) and was a bit nervous when I stood in front of the jury. There had been only a few people who had gone through to the next round so far. The 10 of us acted and danced our hearts out, but only one of us got selected. It wasn't me, and neither was my friend Iva.

We walked outside and fell great, we were a bit sweaty but we had so much fun! Me and Iva took the tram to the center of Amsterdam and went for a little shopping. We ended our day at the central station, with curry fries...

And I love my new red raincoat! It's perfect for the typical Dutch weather ;)

Have you ever been to Disneyland Paris? Or any other Disney park?
And what is your favourite Disney movie? Mine is Tangled!

I hope you like my little story!
Until next time with a new adventure!

  1. Wauw, wat bijzonder dat je naar die auditie bent geweest. Ik heb inderdaad gelezen dat er in Amsterdam audities waren voor rollen in de entertainment in Disneyland. Jammer dat jij en je vriendin niet zijn uitgekozen, maar het klinkt wel als een prachtige en leuke ervaring!


I hope you have a wonderful day! :)
