any tips for first timers?
They are looking for reliability and personality. They "type out" first then teach a little movement - not dance - just to see if you can follow directions. Come up with something interesting to do when they ask you to improvise - remember they see a hundred or so people so they've "seen-it-all" - be unique.

Oh congrats! Hope you enjoy your role! Has everyone else heard back yet? Or is anyone else stuck in limbo with me???
Some casting emails go out a bit later. Check your Spam email. I think Pool gets casted 1st as well. I got my email but I'm sure that I'm in pool, they didn't give me a character name or number as well.

Lastly, you CAN get casted mid event so dont lose hope until the event is over. My 1st year, I literally worked the last 2 days of the event.

I sure hope I’m not casted mid event because I’m planning on moving solely to work at the event I guess I’ll have to wait and see.

You don’t find out your role until orientation or your costume fitting, whichever comes first.

Pool casting tends to come last, FWIW.

Oh, then I guess I landed a permanent role, despite my limited availability. Might have gotten type casted or been a really good fit. Didn't know they were doing things like that now. When I was casted in the past, I always got my character right away but the names were very vague

If you got it a week ago or sooner, chances are, they know where they're putting you. They don't give out character names or numbers until orientation.

That can change... I know some people get "cast" in a specific role, get told that role, and then are later informed they'll be shifted to pool due to availability. Sometimes left hand doesn't talk to right hand.

I saw that message too. Got a little frustrated that we're hearing about more auditions before I even got a response, lol.... It is what it is, I guess. Orlando had those same qualifications for their lookalike casting call, so it's definitely a shared property...

I think this is going to be for the rumored Us maze which is basically 90% confirmed now lol so I wouldn't worry too much about that.
