Cast members Mikey Trujillo and Alexa Garcia were introduced as the 2017-2018 Disneyland Resort Ambassador Team. They will represent the resort and its 29,000 cast members at events the park and in the community.
The selection of the resort ambassadors involves a rigorous interview and selection process. Candidates are evaluated based on public speaking ability, general knowledge of the park and cast member spirit. Congratulations to Mikey and Alexa who will now continue the tradition Walt Disney started in 1965 and help with public appearances, interviews and other special requests.
