Topics regarding layoffs at Disney

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 

How is this possible?

How is Disney still among the top five most admired companies in the world? Do people really care that little about the way this place has been treating its employees in the middle of a pandemic??? I know this place has a strong brand, but I was... —  read more 

WDW Parks CMs

Went to three parks in January. The CMs, frontline and leaders/managers, do not seem like the CMs of pre-Covid day. They are not Disney-friendly, barely say a word, just go through the motions. The good news though, is that that many demographics... —  read more 

Touching bases

How is everyone who was laid off doing? I hope you are hanging in there and have found a replacement. Many of us lived and breathed for the company and its okay to admit that. I was upset and angry but life goes on and I found myself in a better... —  read more

Hypocrisy at its best

The whole thing is a good read but this is the most important part: This summer, Bob Iger, outgoing CEO of Disney, and incoming CEO Bob Chapek both announced they would forego about $1 million each of their salaries — but not included in that... —  read more

32k U.S. employees

I know there was supposed to be 32k altogether by March but it feels like we are already well beyond that number. And we are nowhere near done so the number will just continue to climb. In all honesty, I think Disney is trying to save face and hiding... —  read more
