My name is Alexander Sjursæther (Sjursaether), and I worked as a Cultural Representative in the Norway pavilion in Epcot, Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida on two terms, from December 2010-November 2011 and June 2013-June 2014.
This blog is dedicated to my years in the United States and working for Disney and to the Norwegian Showcase. I will try to keep everyone updated about my year down here and tell how life as a Cast Member in Disney can be…
I decided to work in Disney World for a year after finishing high school, since I didnt know what to study further. I have been working in an amusement park, Kongeparken, for four years and want to continue working with service and people. After I finished my first program (2010-2011) I went back to Norway to work for Kongeparken as an Operation Manager for attractions in the park for a season, and it was a great experience. I longed to get back to Disney, and went back to the most magical place on earth for another year…
