Calling all couples and families with a downright goofy love of Disney!

Disney is holding online auditions for a commercial and photo shoot in Miami in January.

It’s looking for couples and families of all shapes and sizes; all ethnicities and ages, same sex or opposite sex, and biracial families are encouraged. Kids must be 5 years old or older.

You can even bring the grandparents, aunts and uncles along.

Pay is $1,000 per person per day!

You should be available Jan. 8 through 12. A fitting will happen on Jan. 8 or 9, with shooting scheduled for Jan. 10 and 11 (for a total of three days’ work).

You’ll be reimbursed for some travel within Florida, so this gig is the best deal for anyone who lives in the state or plans to travel anyway. But even if you have to fly in, the pay should be enough to cover any last-minute travel expenses.

At about $3,000 per person, you can probably afford a quick layover in Orlando for a surprise Disney vacation for the family.

This has to be the most fun way we’ve seen yet to recoup those holiday costs!

How to Audition

Your love of Disney is the top requirement for this gig, so don’t be afraid if you don’t have acting or modeling experience.

To throw your hat in the ring, you’ll send photos and contact information of everyone auditioning and a quick, self-made video explaining what you all love about Disney to the email listed here.

And if you’re worried you won’t be good enough, just remember that inspiring Disney quote: “If you can dream it, you can do it.”
