That would be wonderful news! It has been years since I visited WDW and EPCOT. I can't imagine the WS without citizens from ...well... the world working there. That's part of what makes it more immersive and exciting.

Why do they need French people to operate the ride? Guests won't even interact with the ride CMs. American CMs can simple learn to say Bonjour at guests entering,

If it was for the La Creperie or for the shops then fine but ride unnecessary.

World Showcase always had cast from the specific country up until reopening after Corona.
Of course they could be American but it’s nice to have that little extra, especially in times when it seems like these little extras are being taken away.

I just read an article from another popular WDW news site suggesting that the French recruiting agency used by Disney to employ French cast members have posted a job listing looking for the people to operate the Ratatouille attraction. After a quick search I couldn’t find the job listing online but this could be exciting news, not only for the opening of the attraction but, and more exciting for me personally, the return of the Cultural Representatives. Despite the wonderful job the cast members currently manning the pavilions are doing, I think the Cultural Reps are the life and soul of the World Showcase (the current cast members could be redeployed elsewhere of course, no one wants more jobs lost!).

With a possible vaccine now on the way and the visa ban due to end January 1st (Covid-permitting), could we start seeing the Cultural Representative Program begin to return in early 2021?
I saw the article you mentioned, and as someone in line to return to Epcot as a CRP I did some research to see what was going on because I hadn’t heard anything. The recruiting they mentioned is actually by a third party recruiter that hires for the food and beverage venues in the pavilion and looks to be outdated. It’s complicated because these people would be working for Chefs de France, not Disney directly, however they would need to live in Disney sponsored housing, which is not reopened yet and have had most their staff laid off. So saying all that, even if this company was hiring, it would not be for attraction hosts, so not really an indication of the attraction opening. Just another example of that other site making stuff up.

No way the CRPs are coming back for a while. I feel the domestic CMs will get ticked off if there is more layoffs as a result of bringing the program back.

However, I highly value the CRP program and think it is a vital part of EPCOT

Does Frozen Ever After have Norwegian CMs operating the ride? I didn't notice it.
