The positions begin in October 2017, with a contract of four months, however, cast your magic and you could become a permanent Disney cast member.

The roles are being cast to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Paris park which opened in 1992. The park opened to controversy as the French worried it would be Americanized and an advocate for junk food.

Join in the birthday celebrations

However, like any birthday bash, the organizers have gone all out to get things just right. The night time spectacle is packed full of Disney moments. The short film projected onto the #Sleeping Beauty Castle is conducted by #Mickey Mouse himself.
