World Showcase to be staffed by American CMs

What's the big deal? Do you guys even interact with the international CMs? Not including ordering food.

It affects me cause I always do the lame passport where I go to each country and let each representative stamp and sign the passport which I have no use for anyways.

Actually, yes. Having been stationed in Germany I often will speak my basic German to the cast members in Germany. Once I speak they instantly know that I have spent some time abroad and it leads to a conversation. I love it. Same in Japan. Having been stationed in Japan they definitely know as soon as you say anything even remotely correct in Japanese. Once again it leads to great conversation and when they know you have lived in their countries, I think they may get homesick or just want to reminisce, but they will talk at length.

That being said does anyone think it will be hard to find people in the U.S. who could do a passing job. Mexico, China, Canada, UK, Morocco, should all be easy to find a fluent native born in the U.S. (Or for the U.K. and Canada actors :) For Germany I am sure you could find an Army brat somewhere to fill in who is fluent in German and has lived there for years. I am not suggesting they are an adequate long term solution, but Disney may be able to fake their way a little in the meantime.

I for one find it to be a special part of EPCOT to have cultural reps, so it will be a bummer in the short-term, but will all work out long-term.

We’ve been in the second wave since March. First wave was December hence COVID19 not COVID20 ;)
Incorrect. The first wave started in 2019, so we are still in that wave. The date has nothing to do with it, and if this carried into 2021 it would still be Covid-19. The first ‘peak’ hit most western countries in 2020, the second wave/peak is due to hit around autumn/winter when the flue season kicks in. The virus is called Covid-19 because that’s when it started, nothing to do with the wave.

I doubt Disney closes again. If there is no spike in cases within the next week or so after all the protests, that would prove that social distancing can be relaxed. If we see a spike it's possible the second wave could show up before the parks even reopen, delaying it beyond July 11.
Highly unlikely, the second wave will come in autumn/winter with flu season.

I don't worry about people working in the China Pavilion but I expect their sales to be the lowest of any on the Pavilions. People are upset with China due to Covid19 but no one should get upset we ith individuals. Remember the Chinese Americans built the intercontinental railroad and have been here for well over 100 years.
I see, thanks. I was wondering why Americans who staff the pavilion should be worried.

China is astonishing, but also a tyrannical dictatorship bent on global domination. No need to mince words about that. ;)
