Cultural Representative Program Returning To Walt Disney World

Disney have announced that the Cultural Representative Program is officially returning to Walt Disney World this August.

This means that the popular International cast members will be returning to the World Showcase pavilions at Epcot!

The program will return in phases, ​with initial recruitment beginning in Germany, Norway, Italy, France, the United Kingdom and Canada.

Disney added that it will bring more countries on board once they clear travel restrictions and have "CDC-authorized vaccine availability."

For the program's relaunch, Disney is first reaching out to participants whose programs were shortened, canceled or wait-listed in 2020 as well as those who had an offer but had not yet arrived at Disney World.

They will be given the first opportunity to reapply.

"The Cultural Representatives play an important role in our storytelling by helping us create authentic, immersive experiences for our guests as they share their countries' culture, heritage and traditions that have inspired our resorts, pavilions and theme parks," Disney said Friday.

The Cultural Representative Program plays an important role in helping Disney create immersive experiences and transport guests to another place. To qualify for this program, you must be at least 18 years of age and authentically represent one of the countries or regions that has inspired our resorts, pavilions, and theme parks.

Some roles (as indicated) may be part of a country pavilion. Disney recruit friendly, outgoing, hospitality-oriented people to represent their cultures, traditions, and history of their country.

Participants have the chance to greet and interact with people from across the globe all while sharing their own heritage. Participants will also contribute greatly to our overall guest experience across the Walt Disney World Resort, including the Kidcot Fun Stop.
