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.

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.
