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!
