Many top singers and entertainers started at the Disney Channel.
Step 1: Prepare Prepare acting, singing, and dancing pieces to perform. Most Disney Channel shows require at least two of the three, so stay ahead of the game by showing you're a triple threat.
Step 2: Get headshot and resume Have a headshot and resume ready to take with you to the audition. This is a requirement for Disney auditions.
Step 3: Get an agent Secure representation from a talent agent to ensure the best chance of landing an audition with Disney. Although some auditions are open, many require submission by an agent.

Step 5: Check the trades Check out entertainment trade papers, available in bookstores and libraries, for audition listings.
Step 6: Submit a demo Submit a demo tape of you or your child singing, dancing, and acting to casting directors that cast Disney shows. A list of these can be found online or in trade directories listed by show.
