Disney Ambassador Program Welcomes 2019-2020 Team
In 1965, Walt Disney created the Disney Ambassador Program. As Disney became a household name, Walt’s schedule had become overwhelmed. He needed to ensure that his brand was well represented in appearances, even if he was unable to be there. The new Disney Ambassadors would serve as the official spokespersons for the company. The very first was Julie Reihm who set the standard for future Ambassadors. More than 50 years later, Disney Ambassadors still serve as emissaries of goodwill for the Disney destinations they represent. That too has grown as well, and includes six resorts plus Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa.
Meet The New Ambassadors
Say hello to the 11 new Disney Ambassadors you’ll soon meet at Disney destinations around the world, starting on January 1:
The new Disney Ambassadors will complete immersive training that is scheduled through the end of this year. It consists of site tours, global business overviews and media training. They will also get a deep-dive into Disney’s most engaging experiences. They’ll represent approximately 150,000 cast members, crew members and Imagineers across the globe.
Earlier this week, the incoming class of Disney Ambassadors visited California as part of their training. They were even treated to a little movie magic with a tour of the Studio Lot and a meeting with Bob Chapek, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products.
In keeping with Walt’s vision, the Disney Ambassador program keeps moving forward, which is why their responsibilities cover a colorful spectrum of magic and memory-making both in the parks and beyond.
Please join us as we give a warm welcome to the 2019-2020 Disney Ambassadors!
