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 - The United Kingdom. 

Participants on this program will work in Food and Beverage or Merchandise and Kidcot at the United Kingdom Pavilion in the World Showcase at Epcot. Participants will be paid an hourly wage between $10.00 - $10.15 per hour

The Cultural Representative Program is a 12-month experience, although program length may vary with the country/position offered.

One of the most unique aspects of the Disney International Programs is just how international they really are. Every day, you'll have the experience of living and working with cast members from all over the world.

There are four Disney International Housing complexes you could be housed at, each featuring amenities including fitness centers, transportation systems, swimming pools and computer labs – providing an exciting setting for you to build relationships and create lifelong memories. You can also participate in cast member events and scheduled activities in the housing complexes throughout your program. During your personal time, you'll even have the opportunity to visit Disney parks and explore everything that Orlando, Florida has to offer.

Whether you're assigned to a one, two, three or four-bedroom apartment, you'll share a bedroom with one or two Disney International Programs participants. Often, your roommate(s) will be from another country, allowing you to learn about other cultures as you share your own and make lifelong friends.

In order to make the living experience more convenient for you, housing costs are automatically deducted from participants' weekly paycheck. Participants will also help support the exclusive activities and events they'll get to attend throughout the program by contributing a one-time fee of $154.50 USD at the time of offer.
