International Castmembers Set to Return to Epcot

Many things around Walt Disney World are different these days. At Epcot, and around Walt Disney World, guests are accustomed to seeing and interacting with international castmembers particularly throughout World Showcase.

Castmembers from the different countries have been greeting and helping guests throughout World Showcase for years… until last year. With the onset of COVID-19, many international castmembers and all of the Disney College Program were furloughed and sent home for their health and safety.

It seems as though international castmembers will soon be returning to a few World Showcase countries and we are so excited.

It’s looking like these amazing castmembers will soon begin returning to World Showcase.

Positions typically filled with international castmembers have been filled with domestic castmembers since Walt Disney world reopened in July 2020.


The Patina Restaurant Group has started accepting applications for Cultural Representative positions for dining locations in the Italy and France pavilions in Epcot’s World Showcase.

To work in the United States, you will need a visa. Our agency will assist for the visa demand. The cultural representative program is giving you the opportunity to work in the USA while representing your country towards the international guests of Walt Disney World®

This program is designed for young Italian people willing to share their culture: Italian culinary traditions, touristic places, the Italian languages and dialects…
