Making a positive impact on the community where we live, work and play, the new Shanghai Disney Resort Ambassador Team joined the Disney VoluntEARS to create the Imagination Playground Family Play Activity at local primary schools in Shanghai’s Pudong District. Through this program, the resort VoluntEARS aim to inspire the children’s imagination while also encouraging families to get outside in the spring season and spend quality time together.
With support from local non-profit organization “Right To Play China”, Shanghai Disney Resort VoluntEARS, led by the resort’s new Ambassador Team will pay regular visits to local schools to build and create endless shapes and stories together with the young children and their families using big sponge blocks.
“It is our great pleasure to be part of the Disney VoluntEARS to create the Disney magic and happiness for not only our guests at Shanghai Disney Resort, but also families living in our communities,” said Chloe Zhou, one of the two recently named Ambassadors at Shanghai Disney Resort.
“We look forward to bringing more creative and engaging activities to the communities to continuously inspire the younger generation, while also to encourage young parents to spend more time with their children,” added Natalie Yao, another member of Shanghai Disney Resort’s Ambassador Team.
The new Shanghai Disney Resort Ambassador Team, recently selected from the over 10,000 Cast Members in the resort, will serve a two-year term from 2017 to 2018, during which the team will represent Cast Members of Shanghai Disney Resort and spread goodwill in the community. They will also continue to lead Disney VoluntEARS programs to present the resort’s commitment to local communities.
The prestigious Disney Ambassador role dates back to 1964, when Walt Disney sought a representative for the 10th Anniversary of Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. The legendary program continued to evolve in the last 50 years and has been introduced to Disney destinations around the world. Each Disney destination selects their own Disney Ambassadors from their Cast to serve as the emissary of goodwill, sharing the magic, inspiration, and optimism of Disney. The tradition has been introduced to Shanghai Disney Resort two years ago with its first Ambassador, Jennie Xu, being introduced in early 2015.
