Forty-five years ago, Walt Disney selected the first Disneyland Ambassador, Julie Reihm, and that tradition has continued ever since. This year, we are proud to announce that Jolie Hales and René Torrico have been selected as the 2011-2012 Ambassador team. The team will spend its two-year term serving as emissaries of goodwill and being the public representatives of our 20,000 cast members.
The Ambassadors also have the joy of taking the magic of Disneyland and sharing it outside the “berm” (the walls of the park) – whether by visiting children at local hospitals with Mickey Mouse or supporting events such as charity fundraisers. We are thrilled to have these two talented individuals join the ranks of Disney Ambassadors around the world.

UPDATE: Right after the ceremony at Disneyland park, the new 2011-2012 Disneyland Resort Ambassador team and Mickey Mouse took a ride down Main Street, U.S.A.
