An international recruiting website had sparked reports today that the Italy pavilion was actively recruiting cast members for Disney's cultural representative program at EPCOT.

We have heard this evening directly from Patina Restaurant Group, the restaurant operator at the Italy pavilion, that they are not hiring for the Italy pavilion and that the news is completely incorrect.

Most CPs in world showcase are on programs till January, along with a lot of FT cast on TAs in server roles till January as well. This makes it look like they were hoping to start brining CRPs back in the new year, but who knows how accurate that remains.

The US hasn’t relaxed their rules yet to let them into the country . Nor have they started issuing visas again or even said anything about it. Sp that’s a No .

Have we heard anything at all about this in the last six months? Is Disney still waiting on government action? My understanding is that this was tied to Presidential Proclamation 10052, which expired at the end of March.

The Disney Careers site still shows nothing for international and cultural programs.

It was The Commons where the World Showcase cast mostly lived.

Maybe I'm remembering someone mentioning they were living in Vista Way.

Technically, none of them. Most lived in college program housing though. A few found ways to stay in the US and continued to work in their pavilion.
