Walt Disney World had pushed back the start date of the upcoming Cultural Representative Program, now it looks as though Disney has officially suspended the program.
If you aren’t familiar, the Cultural Representation Program is described as:
As part of the Cultural Representative Program, participants can gain leadership, business, and customer service knowledge from seasoned professionals at Walt Disney World® Resort. Living and working near Orlando, Florida is an amazing experience for participants to share their culture and customs.
\ Walt Disney World has just fully suspended the Cultural Representative Program and withdrew offers of employment to those who have been previously approved for both 2020 and 2021.
As you may have heard, Walt Disney World Resort is in the process of welcoming Guests back to our parks and resorts in the coming weeks as part of a phased deliberate approach with the well-being and safety of Guests and cast members at the forefront of our planning. We continue to act on the guidance of government and health agencies and make decision based on their input. With that, we wanted to share an update about our Disney Cultural Representation program.
We are still in the early phase of the reopening process. Many of the buildings with the Disney housing complex have remained closed and we have not yet determined when we will reopen them. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to continue to suspend our Disney Cultural Representation program until further notice. We regretfully need to advice you that our offer of employment to you is withdrawn. Please be assured that we will refund your program fee.
We understand this is not the news you were hoping to hear and we want to assure you this decision was not made lightly. We are committed to our Disney Programs and plan to resume in the future, when the time is right.
If you would be interested in a future program, please let us know by completing the information on the link provided and we will keep you updated on a future opportunity.
We greatly appreciate your passion for Disney and interest in the Disney Cultural Representative Program and we look forward to the opportunity to welcome back our Program participants in the future!
We hope you and your family stay safe.
