Have you ever dreamed of living in Walt Disney World? What little girl didn't grow up wishing she could live inside of Cinderella's castle? Don't feel like it is only a dream for children. Adults who love Disney deserve a chance to dream too!
Except, now this isn't just a dream. You can actually apply to live and work in Walt Disney World, in Orlando, Florida for an entire year! This isn't a gimmick either, you actually can apply to live in a dream world.
The international Cultural Representative Program is a program from Disney that, "plays an important role in helping us 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 we've recreated at our resorts, pavilions, and theme parks."
Disney World is looking for cultural representatives from Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Norway, Southeast Asia, Sub Saharan Africa, and the United Kingdom.
The website for the program says:
- We recruit friendly, outgoing, hospitality oriented people to represent their cultures, traditional, and history of the entire 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.
- In this 12-month Cultural Representative Program, participants can greet and interact with guests while sharing the United Kingdom's amazing culture. The United Kingdom Pavilion captures the essence of the four countries of Britain: England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
- As guests enter the pavilion, they are greeted by outdoor carts selling refreshments, plus a variety of shops such as Twinings tea, Cadbury chocolates, fine china, sportswear from Wimbledon, and handcrafted products from Wales.
- Opposite the shopping street, the Yorkshire Country Fish Shop offers fish and chips, next door to the Rose and Crown Restaurant and Pub.
Those selected to work as part of the Cultural Representative Program will live in the park, earn $10/hour and work a 32-hour work week. If you're interested in this, you can apply online!
