The audition pages also give details of the requirements for the performers being sought at each session, which includes languages spoken, physical requirements in the case of character performers, and performance skills, such as dance or voice characterization. The website also provides helpful information on how to prepare for the audition and what to bring along.

If a specific role in a particular park requires union membership, the website provides this information as well; however, this applies to very few of Disneyland's resorts. In general, all suitable applicants who meet the physical requirements specified in the audition call have a good chance of receiving an audition slot.
