Disney Cultural Representatives will start returning in phases, with the first participants beginning in August!
I was just telling someone a couple of days ago that I hoped at least some EPCOT World Showcases countries would accept representatives soon, I’m delighted that we’ll be seeing that happen this summer. There are just a small amount of local Disney Cultural Representatives working in World Showcase, along with other Cast Members.
Disney says about the program, “The program will return in phases, with participants from select countries whose 2020 program was shortened or canceled now being offered the opportunity to apply. All participants from a 2020 program received an email this morning informing them of their current status and next steps.”
Six countries will participate in the initial recruitment. Here is information on that from Disney:
“We are doing this in a thoughtful and responsible way with the safety of our participants and working cast top of mind. With this phased re-introduction, initial recruitment will start in Germany, Norway, Italy, France, UK, and Canada for World Showcase at EPCOT. We look forward to bringing additional countries on board and sharing applications with them once they clear travel restrictions and / or have CDC-authorized vaccine availability.”
