Hosting the recent Ambassador ceremony at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort was without a doubt one of the most unforgettable moments of my life. It was such an honor to announce Lily Chan and Tony Dick as the first Disney Ambassador team ever to represent Hong Kong Disneyland Resort! I can’t put into words how touching it was to see all six finalists come together with their families and friends to celebrate such a historic occasion.
Lily and Tony are both incredible and are the perfect combination as our next Disney Ambassadors. Born and raised in Hong Kong, Lily grew a passion for Hong Kong Disneyland and become a full time cast member as soon as she graduated. I met Lily through Disney VoluntEARS, where she is an active member. She frequently spends her free time helping in the community and the resort in many different ways. She is also unbelievably creative and knows how to effectively execute her ideas – which can be seen from the video she produced as part of the Ambassador selection process!
Tony grew up in South Africa and came to Hong Kong Disneyland to pursue his dream of being a singer. I’ve always been a huge fan of watching him perform on stage, from Festival of the Lion King to our new castle show, Follow Your Dreams. His energy and charisma always get the crowd excited! And after getting to know more about him, I’ve found him to be very humble, knowledgeable and always full of great ideas.
Most importantly, I couldn’t be more proud to be passing the Disney Ambassador pin to these two. They have exactly what it takes to continue Walt’s legacy and will both be shining stars for Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. I’m looking forward to hearing more from them and can’t wait to see where their magical journey takes them in serving our cast and the local community.
Congratulations Lily and Tony!
