On October 8, 2012, Disneyland once again chose a new Ambassador Team for the 2013-2014 years.
In a brief ceremony in the Sleeping Beauty Castle Forecourt, current Disneyland Ambassadors Jolie Hales and René Torrico recounted some highlights of their past two years and prepared to hand off their positions.
After a short character-filled musical number, George Kalogridis, president of the Disneyland Resort, commended the present Ambassadorial team, and the Cast Member finalists were presented.
After each finalist had an opportunity to recount one of their special memories of Disneyland, Kalogridis announced Sachiko White and Megan Navarette as the new Disneyland Resort Ambassadors in a blast of confetti.
Having been picked from a pool of nearly 80 applicants, the two women from the Entertainment Division will spend the next two years as representatives and spokespeople for the resort, meeting dignitaries and VIPs, along with participating in various community outreach activities.
After photos, the two took their traditional fire truck drive down Main St.
The new team clearly has an exciting couple of years ahead for them. We congratulate White and Navarette, and look forward to seeing more of them throughout the next two years!
