Cast Members Megan Navarette and Sachiko White Named as 2013-2014 Disneyland Resort Ambassador Team

Today, in a ceremony fronting Sleeping Beauty Castle, Disneyland Resort President George A. Kalogridis announced that cast members Sachiko White and Megan Navarette will represent the Resort and its 23,000 cast members as the 2013-2014 Disneyland Resort Ambassador Team. The pair will continue a tradition started by Walt Disney in 1965 to help him with the numerous requests he received for media interviews, public appearances, and hosting VIP guests.

White and Navarette were selected from nearly 80 applicants, and will spend a two-year term taking the magic of the Resort into the community by acting as emissaries of goodwill. As part of their full-time duties, they will represent the Resort at a variety of events, such as hospital visits with Disney characters, special promotions, and cast recognition ceremonies. In addition, the pair will serve as spokeswomen for the Resort, as well as host dignitaries and other VIPs. While the tradition started at Disneyland, today there are Ambassadors at every Disney Park around the world.

Kalogridis said, “Sachiko and Megan are well deserving of this prestigious honor, and will do a tremendous job representing the Resort and our 23,000 cast members. After a rigorous training and interview process, the pair has demonstrated the depth of their Disney knowledge and passion for being a Disney cast member, and we look forward to their community outreach efforts over the next two years.”

Congratulations, Sachiko and Megan!

I remember Sachiko from last summer. She performed with Russell over at DCA and she was terrific. That is an awesome job!

I had no idea Disney Parks had ambassadors — very cool! What are these ladies’ regular cast member positions?

I thought I recognized Sachiko from the Redwood Creek Wilderness Explorer Ceremony! I don’t know either personally, but have seen Sachiko plenty of times, and it is definitely a well deserved honor for her, and I’m sure for Megan as well. Congratulations to both!

I am very proud of Megan, my daughter. She will be a great representative for Disneyland and all the cast members. Her experience interacting with Disneyland guests in an entertainment role and her love of Disneyland will only enhance her ability as the 2013-2014 Disneyland Ambassador.
Love, Mom

How sweet that the mom of one of the new Disneyland Ambassadors has posted directly above me. As a mom myself, I got a little teary-eyed when I read her post. It sounds like Megan is a wonderful woman, and I’m sure Sachiko is equally as wonderful. Congratulations to both women. I know they’ll make their fellow Cast Members proud.
