Disneyland Paris Names Its New Ambassadors
The new Disneyland Paris Ambassadors for have been selected! Chosen by a team of Cast Members, Carmen Lleo Badal (Contact Center) and Quentin Rodrigues (Show & Ride Engineering) will have the honor of representing Disneyland Paris in 2022 and beyond. The pair’s time in this very special role is sure to be quite exceptional, as Disneyland Paris prepares to celebrate its 30th Anniversary next year.
The Disneyland Resort Ambassador Program dates back to 1965 when Walt Disney selected the first Ambassador, Julie Reihm. Upon its opening in 1992, Sabine Marcon became the first Ambassador of the Disneyland Paris Resort.
Disney Ambassadors serve as the Resort’s “Emissaries of Goodwill,” media representatives and as official hosts to Resort guests. As official spokespeople, Ambassadors offer the outside community a personal relationship with the Resort.
Disneyland Paris Ambassador, Giona Prevete, shared his delight with us by saying, “I’m so proud of them as they worked their way through our selection process, completing several interviews with cast members from different divisions and showed their skills through a range of tests on public speaking, social media content creation and community engagement.”
Carmen, originally from Spain, joined the company in 2011 and gained experience in different roles, first in Food & Beverage and later as an Attraction Hostess. After expanding her knowledge in event management in the United States, Carmen returned to Disneyland Paris and joined the digital team of our Contact Center, where she assists guests for upcoming stays to make sure they have the most magical time with us! Her love for Disneyland Paris comes from her family, as they’ve been life-long guests of the Resort. Even her brother joins our big family of cast members on a regular basis for the high season!
Quentin holds a dual degree in Engineering, part of which he completed at the University of California, Berkeley. Just like Carmen, Quentin has international experience as he joined Walt Disney World Resort as an Attraction Host at Peter Pan’s Flight in 2015, before joining Disneyland Paris in 2018 on the Show & Ride Engineering team. Daily he ensures our guests enjoy our attractions to their fullest and guess what: he has become the engineer in charge of… Peter Pan’s Flight! Talk about a full circle!
Carmen and Quentin have said they look forward to representing the many talents of our cast members, highlighting our different roles, talents and creativity.
Taking on their new roles as Disneyland Paris Ambassadors is sure to be the experience of a lifetime for Carmen and Quentin. We can’t wait to see where this journey takes them!
