Premiere Event has taken place at Walt Disney World for many years. However, this doesn't mean we are affiliated with Disney. We are separate from them. Also, we are not a talent agency, nor do we guarantee employment.

No. We provide a valuable service for a fee. Your child has the opportunity to showcase their talent in front of a large number of industry professionals and celebrities in a safe environment. We attempt to be as transparent as possible with the services offered by us when you accept and invitation to Premiere Event.
What takes place during an interview weekend?
Every child must attend an interview weekend before being invited to attend Premiere Event.
On Saturday, 100-200 families are seen every few hours. Each participant will have a one-on-one interview. Family's will be given a booklet if they have passed the first evaluation. Not every child is accepted to Premiere
On Sunday and Monday, participants should email us to receive results. If chosen, the child will come back to be evaluated further, and possibly offered enrollment to the event held at Walt Disney World.
