The organization of the recent ambassador ceremony at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort was without a doubt one of the most unforgettable moments of my life. It was an honor to announce Lily Chan and Tony Dick as the first Disney ambassador team to represent Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. I can’t say in words how touching it was to see the six finalists reunite with their families and friends to celebrate such a historic occasion.
Lily and Tony are amazing and are the perfect combination as our next Disney ambassadors. Born and raised in Hong Kong, Lily became interested in Hong Kong Disneyland and became a full-time cast member as soon as she graduated. I met Lily through Disney VoluntEARS, where she is an active member. He often spends his free time helping the community and the complex in many different ways. She is also incredibly creative and knows how to execute her ideas effectively, which can be seen in the video she produced as part of the Ambassador selection process.
Tony grew up in South Africa and came to Hong Kong to Disneyland to pursue his dream of being a singer. I’ve always been a big fan of seeing him perform on stage, since Lion King Festival in our new castle show, Pursue your dreams. His energy and charisma always excite people! And after learning more, I found him very humble, knowledgeable and always full of fantastic ideas.
Most importantly, I couldn’t be more proud to pass the Disney Ambassador pin to these two. They have exactly what it takes to continue Walt’s legacy and both will be shining stars for Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. I’m looking forward to hearing more from them and can’t wait to see where their magical journey takes them in the service of our cast and the local community.
Congratulations Lily and Tony!
