One of the greatest benefits of the Disney International Programs is the experience gained while working as a Cultural Representative. This is an opportunity to work and learn from one of the world's leading entertainment and hospitality companies.
In the Cultural Representative Program, participants share their culture and customs with Walt Disney World® Resort guests who visit from all over the world. To qualify for this program, participants must authentically represent one of the countries or regions that have been recreated in look and feel at Walt Disney World® Resort.
Participants in this program will work in Food and Beverage or Kidcot and Merchandise at the United Kingdom Pavilion in the World Showcase at Epcot.
The Cultural Representative Program is a 12-month experience, although program length may vary with the country/position offered.
