Cast members Ken Facey and Brandon Peters have been selected as the 2017-2018 Walt Disney World ambassadors. The two were informed of their appointment by Disney World president George A. Kalogridis and the selection panel at a ceremony last month. Peters, a UCF alumni, works in entertainment as a performer and part of the 2016 Disney University Traditions team. Facey has been in a leader role at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, supporting the housekeeping and custodial team. Disney says candidates are picked for their "enthusiasm for community service, passion for Disney guest service, knowledge of Disney heritage and business, professionalism, integrity, compassion and character." After a three-month training period, the new ambassadors will begin their terms on January 1, working through the end of 2018.
