    His other picture looked better, but what floors me is that he has only been with the company for TWO YEARS!!!!!! He was born in Germany and speaks four languages and was a Jedi lol!

    We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.

    Their a little ugly.. but here's to them being the best hosts of this anniversary celebration!

    Must be a pretty good guy to be with the WDC for two years and have this position.. This is either really good, or really bad.

    I happened to be at the MK the day the ceremony was taking place - I was there early for the Keys to the Kingdom tour. You couldn't get near the castle stage where the ceremony was taking place though. There were lots of suits walking around afterwards. Turns out, our tour guide knows Norman quite well (she is also from Germany) and was really excited to find out he had won.

    Re: 2011 Ambassador Team announced.

    I miss the days when being an Ambassador was a very big accomplishment... when only ONE person represented the resort. I have never believed the "team" concept to be necesary. The first time they chose an ambassador team at WDW it was like 9 CMs for the whole year... a bit excessive, don't you think?

    I think this year, Tokyo selected two gals for 2011, the first time the adapt the team concept.

    Monkey see, monkee do. And in TDR's case, it's not a good thing they are emulating every little mistake the WDC has done in the past decade.

    Actually Tokyo only has one Ambassador this year.

    2011 Tokyo Disney Resort® Ambassador Selected
    URAYASU, CHIBA
    Tokyo Disney Resort announced today that Tomoko Baba has been selected as the 2011 Tokyo Disney Resort Ambassador. Ms. Baba will serve as the goodwill ambassador for Tokyo Disney Resort.
    As a representative of all of the Cast Members of Tokyo Disney Resort, the Tokyo Disney Resort Ambassador will be involved in various publicity activities for the Resort, including appearances in TV and radio shows. She will also visit welfare facilities, hospitals, and municipal offices, and participate in various community service activities in different areas.
    Tomoko Baba was chosen from over 120 applicants and underwent four screening processes. As the 2011 Tokyo Disney Resort Ambassador-elect, she will receive training for three months and serve as goodwill ambassador for one year starting January 1, 2011 and continuing through December 31.

    Re: 2011 Ambassador Team announced.

    You are correct TravisMT81... My bad. The two-ambassador team only served in 2008 for the resort's 25th anniversary. They were Risa Ogawa and Asami Nishizawa. I am glad OLC went back to the traditional one-person ambassador duty. As I see it, the more Ambassador team members they select per year, the lower the standards for what should be a pretigious position and honor.
