About Disney: Super Greeters for Latin American visitors
Disney Vacation Guide to finding a Super Greeter for Latin American tourists
Disney always makes a big effort to make you feel welcome so if you hear you hear ”Oi — Sejam bem-vindos!”, know its for the increasing number of Latin American visitors. Brazilians are topping the charts for the largest overseas visitor group to Florida and Disney is in full swing with its Super Greeter program. From 30 greeters in 2009, there are now more than 80 throughout Walt Disney World.
”The innovative approach we take to welcoming guests with ‘Super Greeters’ from Latin America plays an important part in making our Guests from Brazil feel welcome in our region when they visit,” said Dan Cockerell, vice president of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. “This summer we expect to set another record in the number of Brazilian guests visiting Central Florida.”
What is a Super Greeter?
Trained at the Walt Disney World Resort International College Program, Super Greeters speak fluent Portuguese and some also speak Spanish. These cast members are viewed as cultural representatives, by helping tour groups with tips and directions, made easier by speaking in a common language. They also start up conversations with visitors, sharing facts and stories about their culture.
