Let’s hear it for borough son and Disney College Program cast member Ken Facey, who was named one of two Walt Disney World Ambassadors to carry on the unique Disney tradition of representing the more than 74,000 cast members at the happiest place on Earth.
Ken and his cohort Brandon Peters received their official pins as part of the announcement by Walt Disney World Resort president George Kalogridis and an executive selection panel.
“These two exceptional Disney cast members will continue the tradition of bringing to life the values that make Disney special, such as innovation, optimism, and exceptional service,” said George Kalogridis.
Ken joined the Disney College Program as an attractions host in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom Park. Since then he has continued to share the magic of Disney with roles in operations, guest relations, lodging, and custodial guest services.
“I couldn’t be more honored to wear this pin and help carry on the extraordinary legacy of Walt Disney,” said Ken.
Ken will serve from Jan. 1, 2017 to Dec. 31, 2018.
