契約の開始期間と契約自体の長さ、対象となっているショーを見ると、そのショーが少なくともいつまで開催なのかが分かるはず。今回はボーカリストのみ期間が7カ月となっております。これは前回2014年1月に開催されたときの要項と同じです。

残念ながら?今回も新情報らしい新情報は見つかりません。追記参照。かなり長寿なショーもこれまで同様の募集が行われていることから、東京ディズニーリゾートのショーは新しいものと入れ替えるのではなく、既存ショーをリニューアルし継続する戦略にしているのだろうと考えています。

また、フェイスキャラクターのオーディションの顔ぶれはこれまでとまったく同じであるため、現時点においては期待している新キャラクターの登場はないようです。要するにアナ&エルサのことなのですが、これはもしかしたら単独でオーディションが開催されるのかもしれません。

追記

いま気がつきました。今回ダンサーの部において、これまで同時に行われていた「ミスティックリズム」の募集がありません。

最後に募集が行われたのが2013年7月で、その時は2015年2〜3月までの契約となっています。このまま募集がおこなわれないとなると、ショー入れ替えがあるかもしれません。

追記:2014年7月24日

上記で示唆しましたように、2015年4月5日でミスティック・リズムが終了となることが発表されました。
