Special Thanks from President of Disney World to Two Exceptional Cast Members

Jeff Vahle, the President of Walt Disney World Resort, took to social media to share a special thanks to two exceptional Cast Members that we have personally enjoyed following along with on social media over the the past year plus. While last year was probably one of the most difficult for Cast Members in all of Disney’s history, this Ambassador duo was a breath of fresh air, and kept us all smiling!

As shared by @jeffvahle Instagram: “Before we announce the 2022-2023 Walt Disney World Ambassador team next week, I want to give Marilyn West and Stephen Lim my heartfelt thanks. They helped open so many new experiences, from Gran Destino Tower and Disney Skyliner, to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway; they supported the Central Florida community and Disney VoluntEARS; and their never-ending enthusiasm for our Cast Members shines through in all they do! Marilyn and Stephen’s optimism and positivity was especially needed during the difficult times of the last year, and I’m so proud of them for that. They truly embody the spirit of our Cast and this resort, and will continue to do so as they help our new Ambassadors learn the ropes. On behalf of everyone here at Walt Disney World, THANK YOU!”

While we’re eagerly awaiting the announcement of the new Ambassadors of Walt Disney World Resort, Stephen and Marilyn will be greatly missed! They kept the excitement of being a Disney fan moving through COVID times, and pulled Cast Members through difficult times with their positive spirit. We know the future is bright for these two!

About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
