Severance for store employees

I'm wondering, did any of the store employees receive any kind of severance? I'm going to go out on a limb and say that any part-time employees didn't receive anything, but what about the full-timers? Were they also screwed over like so many of the... —  read more

Disney Store closings

Kelly Tyko USA TODAY Sept. 15 was the last day for many Disney Store locations. The Walt Disney Co. previously announced plans to close nearly 60 of its full-size retail locations across the country "on or before" Sept. 15. As of Sept. 14, the... —  read more

Where are you now?

I found myself landing a job that involved relocating. It’s in a different industry and I just couldn’t pass it up considering a family member helped me get in. I don’t think of Disney often anymore, not like I did when I was furloughed last year. I... —  read more 

I turned them down

And it felt so damn good! For months I waited for a callback while others were returning to work and nothing. Now they finally decided to call me when they can't find enough people who want to work at all. Well, sc--w them! I've found a better... —  read more 

Laid-Off Issue

In my department, greater than the majority of people were laid-off we’re overweight. No matter how positive our performance reviews... our senior executive never welcomed “fat” people, never considered for a promotion. Then, COVID and we were let... —  read more 

Would you come back?

After big layoffs, I found a job in a small company where I am very happy with the atmosphere, but I earn just enough to pay the bills. If nothing else I was making little more money at Disney and I'm debating whether to try to apply for a job again... —  read more 

Finally more hiring!

Disneyland Resort in California is looking to bring on several Cast Members to the team. With a variety of different job types — ranging from attractions to safety team leader — you now have an opportunity to bring magic to Guests each and every day... —  read more 

Why is Disney So PC?

Why is Disney only PC? Will it cause additional issues for cast members? Who will be most impacted and lose they’re jobs in the next round coming soon? Why are most cast members especially in the parks not following four of the five keys?

Have you gotten the call?

I wonder what criteria will be used when calling back people to work now that we know the resort will be reopening on April 30. Everybody I've spoken to so far said they're yet to receive their call (this includes me, of course.) Are any of the lucky... —  read more 

Lack of Empathy

It is horrific that so many people over the six months have replied with negative comments about cast members who were furloughed or laid-off, including the recent replies under "Blacklisted" below. Not all of the 32,000 laid off, and soon to be... —  read more

Getting ready

I’m just going to throw this out there. Since the last round of layoffs I’ve been scared for my job and now that WD is shuttering dozens of stores I’m not going to sit around and hope my store isn’t impacted. I am being proactive on preparing for any... —  read more 


Anyone else get the feeling that if you were laid off or severed the past year that you've been placed on a Disney "do not hire"/blacklist? I've seen dozens of job listings recently, many of which match or are very similar to jobs from which people... —  read more 

Time to accept reality

I love this company, I love what it represents, I loved my job, I loved bringing smiles to kids faces...but I've come to realize Disney doesn't love me back nor did it appreciate my efforts to always go the extra mile. I was furloughed then brought... —  read more 

More bad news

I just read that most people have no plans to visit Disney World before 2022. That means that those of us who were hoping that we might be called back this year are out of luck. This really is not the kind of news I needed right now. Finding a new... —  read more 

This was inevitable?

The last day for Blue Sky will be in April. The number of Blue Sky employees being impacted numbers 450. I used to work here. Somehow I assumed that this would... —  read more
