Joining us aboard the S.S. Member Cruise 2006 is another
talented duo of special Guests, each with a personal connection to
the Disney magic.
Just off the Hollywood set of
the upcoming film Dreamgirls, Jennifer Hudson will share her
vocal talents and theatrical abilities with Members during a live
performance in the Walt Disney Theatre. Though best known as a
finalist on American Idol, Jennifer is an accomplished
actress and Broadway star as well. And just like Members returning
"home" for a vacation, Jennifer Hudson will experience a homecoming
of her own aboard the Disney Wonder—she got her start as a
Disney Cruise Line® featured performer.
If you know the song "Part of Your
World" by heart, then you've heard the exceptional singing ability
of Jodi Benson, the voice of Ariel in the animated feature The
Little Mermaid. After her role as the animated world's most
famous mermaid, Jodi went on to portray characters in over a dozen
other Disney television shows and movies, including Toy Story
2. She'll take center stage aboard the S.S. Member Cruise 2006
to sing some of her favorite Disney songs.
As we announced in a previous edition of
S.S. Member Cruise 2006 Cruise News, Disney Vacation Club
President Jim Lewis is also scheduled to join us onboard. Don't miss
your chance to sit down with the leader of our community during a
presentation in the Walt Disney Theatre, when Jim will share his
Disney Vacation Club memories and some exceptional milestones from
our 15-year history. Remember to check your Personal
Navigator to find out more about this special event!
One of only two people selected for the
position of 2006 Walt Disney World® Ambassador, Michael
Collier has traveled from coast to coast for nearly a year,
representing over 57,000 Disney Cast Members and meeting with
countless Disney Guests. Now Michael's speaking to the ultimate
Disney Guests—Disney Vacation Club Members—and sharing a "Disney
Service" presentation rarely seen by non-Cast Members.
"This is an exclusive presentation that I think Disney Vacation
Club Members will truly enjoy," Michael says. "It really explains
the evolution and showmanship of Disney Guest Service, from the
opening of the Disneyland® Resort to the traditions of
today." Of course, he's looking forward to learning from the Member
community as well.
"I'm definitely looking forward to mingling with Disney Vacation
Club Members," Michael adds. Consult your Personal Navigator
to find out when and where you can experience Michael's exclusive
presentation for yourself.
