All I have to say about this organization is The is a known scam. I called the Disney Studios, and they said it was a scam as well, and yet they STILL allow them to hold a convention at one of their resorts, ONLY BECAUSE of the money it brings Disney World every year. They should tell them NO MORE, but they wont, cause the money is great. They advertised as a DISNEY CHANNEL audition on two different radio stations, and when I called the lady said my son was auditioning for a show, or commercials for Disney. They said my son made the cut for the top 300 children, and he would have a chance to audition. When I arrived, there were at least 1200 in each group. When I confronted the lady on this at the entry, she said..there were 300 in each age group. Funny thing is, as we were leaving, a new set of suckers was waiting in the lobby to come in..about the same number of people.  They play it to be a Disney event, Disney music playing on the speakers, then when it starts, you kinda get a weird vibe about things. [continued below]....
..... Then they have a pep rally, and a few BORING speakers, who are clearly full of dog dookie. Then they hold their cattle call style auditions, after a 30 second interview with a "agent" or "director" which was clearly laughable.  After auditions, I became suspicious, and when I got home I flipped through a pamphlet they handed me on my way out the door, and it had a list of prices. I knew then that it was clearly a scam. I mean YES they have a school program for a few days, a seminar, etc..etc.   YET they make it seem like you WILL get hand selected by directors or scouts. DISNEY THEMSELVES said a call back is nothing more than a company asking you to audition. You could have better results from an agent, or an open casting call audition.

I emailed them, and they covered their tracks, but the radio stations clearly stated that they claimed it was DISNEY CHANNEL auditions, and they had no clue that it was some other company. INTERESTING HUH?

For the person who defended The on this message board, you sound just liek the email I received from them, and you probably work for them. AVOID THIS AT ALL COSTS PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh yah, and my son was selected to come back...but I wouldnt waste a dime, or any of his talent on that crap!
