History of the Ambassador Program
The Ambassador Program began in 1965, when Walt Disney was extremely busy celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Disneyland Resort. He chose to have Cast Member Julie Reihm represent the Company to showcase Cast Members’ numerous talents and to participate in internal and external media and charity events. At Disneyland Paris, when it opened in 1992, Sabine Marcon was named the first Ambassador of the Resort. Since then, Ambassadors have continued to play a prominent role in each of the Disney destinations, carrying on the tradition and Walt Disney’s desire to share the magic around the globe.
