25% of Disney’s layoffs are coming from Disney World

Last week Disney announced they would be laying off 28,000 employees. At least a quarter of the layoffs planned will come from Florida according to a letter the company filed with state and local officials last week.

At least 6,390 nonunion Disney employees in Florida will be laid off starting in early December. The number of Florida layoffs, though, could grow as the company negotiates terms with a coalition of unions that represents 43,000 employees at Walt Disney World.

“Due to the continuing business impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the very difficult decision to reduce our workforce,” Jim Bowden, a Disney vice president of employee relations said in the letter.

Two-thirds of the planned layoffs involve part-time workers and they range from salaried employees to hourly workers.

Josh D’Amaro, chairman of Disney Parks, Experience and Products, sent a letter to employees last week as well regarding the layoffs. He cited California’s “unwillingness to lift restrictions that would allow Disneyland to reopen” as exacerbating the company’s situation that led to the layoffs.

Disney in a Minute: What is a Pre-show?

We’re here with a series of quick posts, “Disney in a Minute,” bite-sized nuggets of information that can better help you understand a Disney term or planning topic. Enjoy!

What is a Pre-show?

In some cases, the pre-show can be the most iconic part of an attraction.

Many Disney attractions have pre-shows. Parsing out the phrase, it’s not hard to understand that a pre-show is the thing before a show. At Disney World, however, “show” here really means “attraction” which could be almost any sort of theme park diversion. The pre-show is the entertainment before the main attraction. It is a way to keep guests engaged while waiting for a ride.

Some pre-shows are simply amusing versions of a safety warning. The Soarin’ pre-show is just Patrick Warburton telling us to buckle our seatbelts, but it’s so charming that it’s one of my family’s favorite parts of Epcot.

I must confess that there are several parts of Disney World attractions that I didn’t initially understand to be “pre-show.” The classic example is the Stretching Room portion of the Haunted Mansion attraction. The Stretching room “show” sets the scene and establishes the atmosphere for the main event – the ride on the doom buggy. This particular pre-show has a cult following of its own, even spawning merchandise lines. Other favorite “set the scene” pre-shows are the quick interview with Aerosmith prior to boarding Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster or the welcome spiel where they scan your body temperature on Flight of Passage.

The concept of pre-show has taken on galactic proportions in Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Hollywood Studios. This attraction has so many introductory pieces that the pre-show might be nearly as long as the attraction itself.

Whether informative of funny, the aim of the pre-show is to hold you in place without giving you time to become bored or restless.

Let us know what Disney topics you think need just a bit more explanation.

Cast Member Pantry extends their support to those laid off at Disney World

Cast Member Pantry extends their support to those laid off at Disney World
credit: Cast Member Pantry

The Cast Member Pantry, a charity organization that offers groceries to furloughed Disney cast members, is now offering its support to cast members that were recently laid off.

The Cast Member Pantry was started back in March by Emily Lartigue, a furloughed Walt Disney World cast member. Cast Member Pantry makes it quick and easy to receive free food essentials once a month per Cast Member. Cast Members receive a reusable grocery bag filled with foods that are easily put together to make meals for 4, with breakfast and snack options as well.

Now that Disney has laid off 28,000 employees, Cast Member Pantry is including those cast members in their services. The organization posted the following on Facebook:

“Lots of questions coming our way! As many of you know we are working to serve cast members affected by furloughs and reduced hours from COVID-19 with bags of groceries.
We will now be including those that are impacted by layoffs as well, and will have an adjustment to our current process to ensure that cm’s impacted by layoffs will have access to our services.
Thank you to all who continue to support our mission. Without the community of love we have seen none of this would be possible.
Hang in there friends. ♥️”

If you are a furloughed or laid off cast member and need some support, you can email castmemberpantry@gmail.com. If you’d like to donate to the organization you can do so via Venmo (@castmemberpantry) or check out their Amazon Wish List.

Over 300,000 sign petition to stop Disney from building on Lighthouse Point

Over 300,000 sign petition to stop Disney from building on Lighthouse Point

Disney Cruise Line is working on a second tropical destination in The Bahamas, which will be located on the beautiful island of Eleuthera at a place called Lighthouse point. Disney completed the purchase of the privately-owned Lighthouse Point last year and signed an agreement with the Government of The Bahamas.

The plan is to develop less than 20 percent of the property; employ sustainable building practices, including an open-trestle pier that eliminates the need to dredge a ship channel; establish environmental monitoring programs during construction and operation; and donate more than 190 acres of privately owned land to Government, among other commitments.

Over 300,000 sign petition to stop Disney from building on Lighthouse Point

Despite all of that, a petition has been started on change.org to stop Disney from building on Lighthouse Point.

The petition states:

“There are plenty of places in the Bahamas where Disney can dock its cruise ships. There is only one Lighthouse Point.

We are deeply concerned about Disney’s plans that threaten this unique natural place treasured by generations of Bahamians and visitors from around the world. The seas surrounding the point are so biologically rich that they have been formally proposed as a Marine Protected Area.

This is NOT the place where an environmentally responsible corporation would choose to construct a massive private cruise ship port – the centerpiece of which is a half-mile-long pier cutting across coral reefs including endangered staghorn coral. The port’s construction and operation would seriously harm the environment, while the economic benefits to communities in South Eleuthera are still unclear and very questionable.

Our planet’s oceans are already facing unprecedented pressures. Their future depends on the choices we make today to protect places like the proposed Lighthouse Point Marine Protected Area. Disney should follow the lead of other cruise companies that have chosen instead to rehabilitate already degraded areas for their cruise facilities.

This is our last chance to protect Lighthouse Point for generations to come. Sign the petition to call upon Disney to secure a different, more suitable site for their cruise ship port and instead work with Bahamian citizen groups on a sustainable development alternative for Lighthouse Point.”

There are over 300,000 signatures on the petition. We’re not sure if the petition will make a difference though. Disney has already purchased the land and started the process of preparing to build.

The Disney Cruise Line Blog is reporting that Lighthouse Point Project’s environmental impact assessment (EIA) is close to becoming a finalized document. The Director of the Department of Environmental Planning and Protection says the EIA is expected to be released for public review “in a matter of weeks”.

If you’d like to sign the petition, you can do so here.

Disneyland layoffs include Imagineers and Restaurant & Hotel Workers

Disneyland layoffs include Imagineers and Restaurant & Hotel Workers

Disney recently announced that it was laying off 28,000 workers due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Today the Orange County Register is reporting that thousands of those employees are restaurant & hotel workers as well as Imagineers.

The massive layoffs cost nearly 3500 Disneyland restaurant and hotel union workers their jobs and put over 400 Imagineers out of work.

Josh D’Amaro, chairman of the Disney Parks, Experiences and Products division, sent a letter to cast members explaining the difficult decision regarding these layoffs. Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Walt Disney Imagineering Disney Cruise Line, and Disney’s travel planning, retail, gaming and publishing divisions were all affected.

“We initially hoped that this situation would be short-lived, and that we would recover quickly and return to normal,” D’Amaro said in the letter to employees. “Seven months later, we find that has not been the case.”

So far it is estimated that over 5,000 cast members have been laid off from Disneyland with that number expected to rise. 2765 of those are non-union layoffs.

Workers United Local 50, which represents 7850 Disneyland cast members, expects 2500 of its food and beverage workers to be laid off.

“There is a lot of information we don’t know now and we are scheduled to meet with Disney in the coming days to get more information and bargain over the effects,” Workers United Local 50 president Chris Duarte wrote on the union’s Facebook page. “Here is what we know now: Who will actually be subject to layoff is still to be determined. The contract and bargaining will determine this.”

Another local union, Unite Here Local 11, expects 950 of its 3000 Disneyland employees to be laid off. Most of them are hotel workers.

“The union will engage in bargaining with the company over issues including job security and healthcare coverage,” Unite Here said in a statement.

One can assume that many of the layoffs are from Disneyland due to the parks and hotels not being allowed to reopen. Here’s hoping they will reopen soon so more layoffs won’t happen!

Universal Orlando Reinstates Finger Scanners at Park Entrances

It seems like each time we visit the theme parks, they’re introducing something new — or bringing back something from the past!

Universal Orlando Reinstates Finger Scanners at Park Entrances

Universal Orlando Resort

Lately, the big news from Universal Orlando has been the modified Halloween Horror Nights experiences being offered this Halloween season! However, as the parks continue moving forward with the next level of reopening, Universal has also made several operational changes in the parks.

Recently, Universal Orlando announced that select rides like the Incredible Hulk Coaster and Rip Ride Rockit would no longer be distancing between seats. Now Universal has also confirmed that the parks will be reinstating the finger scanners at the entrances, instead of just the turnstiles.

There will still be health and safety protocols in place, with hand sanitizer available to guests before the entrances and sanitization of the scanners between each party. Guests will still be required to wear face masks, social distance, and go through temperature checks at Universal Orlando as well.

Disney World also suspended finger scanners during their initial reopening, however, they have not yet announced plans to reinstate this process at the parks.

Universal Orlando Reinstates Finger Scanners at Park Entrances

Toon Landing

Universal Orlando and Disney World could see additional changes in the near future with Florida’s shift into Phase 3 of reopening. So, while they have announced that there are no immediate plans for changes, we’ll continue to keep a close eye out for any updates.

Here’s what our readers had to say about whether they would return to a Disney World restaurant with 100% capacity!

Details on Disney’s Layoff Announcement, Resources For Cast Members, And How YOU Can Help

Earlier this week, Disney announced that approximately 28,000 Cast Members in the Parks, Experiences and Products division would be laid off.

Details on Disney’s Layoff Announcement, Resources For Cast Members, And How YOU Can Help

Cinderella Castle

We’re starting to get more details about what this could mean for Cast Members in Disney World, Disneyland, and elsewhere. We know that this is a very difficult time for Cast Members throughout the country, and we know that information is coming in fits and starts, bits and pieces, and third-party games of telephone from other Cast Members.

We wanted to create a curated page where we can unpack any details we’re getting about the announcement, and where interested Cast Members can find all of the information we currently know about the layoffs.

If you scroll down, we also have information about Cast Member resources and how to access them; and we have details on how you can donate to current Cast Member support organizations.

We’ll continue to update this page as we get more details.

Disney’s Announcement

As we noted earlier, on September 29th, Disney announced that a large number of layoffs would be coming to the Disney Parks, Experiences and Products division of the Walt Disney Disney Company. Specifically, these layoffs are set to impact about 28,000 employees.

Details on Disney’s Layoff Announcement, Resources For Cast Members, And How YOU Can Help

Cast Members

The announcement came via a statement made by Josh D’Amaro, current Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, posted on the Disney Parks News Twitter account. In the statement, D’Amaro notes that due to “the prolonged impact of COVID-09 on [Disney’s] business, including limited capacity due to physical distancing requirements and the continued uncertainty regarding the duration of the pandemic — exacerbated in California by the State’s unwillingness to lift restrictions that would allow Disneyland to reopen[Disney] has made the very difficult decision to begin the process of reducing [their] workforce at [their] Parks, Experiences and Products segment at all levels.”

Up to this point, Disney had kept many non-working Cast Members on furlough since April, while paying their healthcare benefits. In a letter sent to employees from D’Amaro, the Chairman notes that he believes “the heart and soul of [Disney’s] business is and always will be people.”

Cast Members in Front of Spaceship Earth

He says that they initially hoped the pandemic would be short-lived and that things would return to normal quickly, but that has not been the case, and, as a result, they are now forced to reduce the size of their team “across executive, salaried, and hourly roles.” 

What Division of the Company is Affected?

Specifically, D’Amaro has noted that the layoffs will be affecting employees in the Parks, Experiences and Products segment of the Company.

1. Disney Parks and Experiences

According to the Disney Parks, Experiences and Products website, the “Parks and Experiences” part of this division covers the following aspects of the Company:

  • Disneyland Resort
  • Walt Disney World Resort
  • Tokyo Disney Resort
  • Disneyland Paris
  • Hong Kong Disneyland Resort
  • Shanghai Disney Resort
  • Disney Cruise Line
  • Disney Vacation Club
  • Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa
  • Adventures by Disney
  • Walt Disney Imagineering

The Disney Parks and Experiences site specifically notes that these divisions include “more than 170,000 cast members.” But remember that D’Amaro notes in his statement that all of the layoffs will pertain to domestic Cast Members here in the United States. More on that later.

2. Consumer Products

The Consumer Products side of this division includes Consumer Products, Games, and Publishing. According to their website, this side of the business involves Cast Members who work on the following:

  • Global Products — physical products and digital experiences like toys, apparel, jewelry, apps, books, and console games
  • Licensing
  • Retail — meaning, Cast Members who work at or for the Disney Store
  • Games — including those on mobile and console platforms
  • Publishing — including artists and storytellers working on children’s books, magazines, and more

According to CNBC, last year, the Parks, Experiences and Products segment accounted for 37% of the Disney’s $69.6 billion in total revenue. It has long been a significant part of the company’s revenue.

What Cast Members Are Affected and How?

Josh D’Amaro’s statement indicates that these layoffs will be spread “across executive, salaried, and hourly roles.”

Domestic Employees Only

According to Josh D’Amaro’s statement on twitter “[a]pproximately 28,000 domestic employees will be affected.” According to CNN, Disney’s Parks, Experiences and Products division “has more than 100,000 US employees.” As far as we know right now, this should not affect Cast Members in any of the international parks or resorts (i.e. Tokyo Disney Resort, Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, or Shanghai Disney Resort). It is presently unclear what impact it will have on Adventures by Disney’s international employees. According to the New York Times, while theme parks will “account for most of the layoffs…Disney Cruise Line and Disney’s retail stores will also be affected.”

Part-Time

Josh D’Amaro has noted that of the 28,000 domestic employees who will be affected by these layoffs, 67% are part-time employees.

Florida

Thus far, we have heard that the layoffs will affect at least 6,700 non-union employees in Florida. These layoffs will reportedly begin on December 4th. These figures, however, do not include union and salaried workers. According to News 6, “Employers are required by law to notify state and local leaders of mass layoffs under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification or WARN, Act.” Today, the WARN notices website reflected Disney’s two filings. The first filing indicates that 6,390 employees of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, U.S., Inc. will be laid off, which breaks down as follows:

  • At Walt Disney World, 1375 E Buena Vista, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830 (the Team Disney building which houses Cast Members who work in a variety of departments including some related to operations, finance, guest services, and more) — 6,246 employees will be affected;
  • At 200, 210, 215, and 220 Celebration Place, Celebration, FL 34747 (which house administrative offices) — 61 employees will be affected

Disney filed one notice with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity indicating that “6,390 employees of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts U.S., Inc. will be laid off beginning December 4.” A second notice was thereafter filed notifying officials that 279 other employees will also be laid off beginning December 4th. WESH 2 News notes that these layoffs in Florida, but beyond Walt Disney World, could include layoffs at Disney Vacation Club’s offices in Celebration, FL and Disney employees at Orlando International Airport.

One group that represents thousands of Cast Members has already made a statement as to these layoffs. The 6 unions of the Service Trades Council Union, which represent 43,000 Cast Members at Walt Disney World, released a statement on September 29th via their Twitter account:

“We were disappointed to learn that the Covid-19 crisis has led Disney to make the decision to layoff Cast Members,” they wrote. “Unlike at the other theme parks and hotels in Central Florida, Disney workers have a voice at the table because of our Union. We have begun negotiations with the Company about this news and its impact to Union members. How many full-time and part-time Cast Members will be affected, how long health insurance and recall rights will continue and many other issues crucial to Cast Members are on the table. As soon as more information becomes available, we will notify our members.”

Reportedly, several of the unions who represent many of Disney World’s employees are still in discussions with the Company to determine details of the layoffs.

Fox 35 News Orlando spoke with the Trustee of Teamsters Local 385 union, which represents approximately 5,000 Disney Cast Members, bus drivers, and laundry workers. Mike McElmury, the Trustee, said that he estimates about 1,800 of Teamsters Local 385 union’s members will be laid off. McElmury said he received a letter from Disney indicating that those layoffs will begin November 1st. Teamsters Local 385 union is set to meet with Disney to negotiate for things like severance packages and extended healthcare.

Disneyland

In Disneyland, it appears approximately 950 members of one union will be affected by the layoffs effective November 1st. AllEars.net reports that Unite Here Local 11, a union representing approximately 3,000 Disney employees, has issued a statement on September 29th via their website, which says:

PHOTOS: Construction Scaffolding Removed from Disneyland’s Emporium

While Disneyland Resort faces an extended closure, we often pop into Downtown Disney to see if we can spot any new merch and dining updates.

PHOTOS: Construction Scaffolding Removed from Disneyland’s Emporium

Disneyland Gate

While visiting, we’ll stop by Disneyland’s entrance gates to see if there are any signs of life on the other side. We’ve spotted new physical distancing markers and even a potential new walkway. On our recent visit, we stopped by the gates of Disneyland to see what else is new!

It seems some construction is continuing because we noticed refurbishments happening at the Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A last month. Scaffolding was installed all the way to the top of the building. On our visit today, we noticed the scaffolding had been removed from the Emporium!

PHOTOS: Construction Scaffolding Removed from Disneyland’s Emporium

Disneyland Emporium from Outside the Main Gate

We couldn’t quite make out what was updated on the Emporium. It could have been anything from a routine touch-up or just a paint job. Hey, Disneyland is 65 years old! She needs a little TLC every once in a while!

PHOTOS: Construction Scaffolding Removed from Disneyland’s Emporium

Disneyland Main Gate

The construction updates and new installations are not confirmations that Disneyland will reopen any time soon. We’ll continue to make our way back to Downtown Disney to note Disneyland’s progress.

We found a Pumpkin Spice Churro at Downtown Disney! Check it out here!

The Grand Floridian Society Orchestra share last photo from the Grand Floridian

The Grand Floridian Society Orchestra share last photo from the Grand Floridian Grand Floridian Society Orchestra

Many Disney Park enthusiasts are still sad over the news about recent layoffs. A significant number of Disney entertainers and musicians, such as the Grand Floridian Society Orchestra, are being dismissed. The wonderful group shares a photo of their last time gathered together at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. The orchestra group played at the Disney Resort for a total of 32 years.

The Grand Floridian Society Orchestra has released the following statement on their Facebook page:

“We are truly overwhelmed, very grateful and humbled at the massive number of heartfelt comments and sentiments you all have shared. We heard that someone started a petition to bring us back and there are over 1800 signatures on it so far. We can’t thank you all enough for showing your love and support… Unbelievable! Thank you so much! We need to clarify… our last day of performances, October 3rd, will be at the Theater of the Stars at Hollywood Studios… NOT the Grand Floridian. We have not played at the Grand Floridian since March 18th! For those of you asking… we do have CDs available. Please message us for details. We have so many great memories of our time at the Grand Floridian… our thanks to you all!”

Pumpkin Spice Your Life With This Churro From Downtown Disney

Having a churro from Disneyland is a rite of passage and something everyone should try to do at least once (or many, many times in our case!).

Pumpkin Spice Your Life With This Churro From Downtown Disney

Rose Gold Churro at Disneyland

And although much of Disneyland Resort remains closed due to the global health crisis, Downtown Disney is open and they, luckily have churros.

These churros are at the California Churro Co. at Downtown Disney. And we just noticed a favorite flavor has just popped up: pumpkin spice! Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a pumpkin spice churro, but still, we had to give it a try.

Pumpkin Spice Your Life With This Churro From Downtown Disney

California Churro Co. at Downtown Disney

The Pumpkin Spice Churro is a plain churro covered in pumpkin spice sugar and served with cream cheese frosting. We’ve previously raved about the pumpkin spice churros at Disney World, so how does the West Coast version fare? Well, long story short, it was pretty yummy!

Although the pumpkin flavor is pretty light, this was a great tasting churro. Also, the cream cheese frosting is the bee’s knees.

Having the cream cheese dipping sauces really compliments the pumpkin spice flavors. The churro is one of the gourmet flavors currently being offered at Downtown Disney for $6.95. We will be on the lookout for more fall foodie finds in Downtown Disney so stay tuned!

The Best Time of Year for Kilimanjaro Safaris is Here!

Let me tell you, Central Floridians are excited today. We’re experiencing our first cool day of the season. Temperatures have been in the low to mid 70s (degrees Fahrenheit) today and we are loving it! This also means that the animals at Disney’s Animal Kingdom are more active. It is a great time to visit the park, especially Kilimanjaro Safaris. Climb aboard a safari truck and take a look at the wonderful animal photos we captured on today’s ride.

For two brief months in my life I was a safari driver for Kilimanjaro Safaris. It was one of the coolest experiences of my life being able to see these incredible animals day in and day out. I loved it whenever there was a rare chill in the air, especially first thing in the morning or at the end of the day. The animals interact with their environment in a much different way; they tend to be more curious. It is also a great time to ride when it rains. The animals behave differently (just like humans behave differently) in the rain. If you’re ever in Animal Kingdom when it rains make a beeline for the safari, even if you’ve already ridden it that day.

When riding the safari, it’s good to listen to the safari driver for animal sightings, but it is also good to look around yourself. Sometimes the best views of the animals can be behind you or off to the side. Keep your eyes open and be aware. Snapping photos can be great, but I have found that having memories of the ride itself become more cherished than the photos.

Right now there are no FastPass+ options for any Disney attractions, but Animal Kingdom continues to be the quietest park at Walt Disney World, especially during the week. Our team waited 17 minutes at 11:30 a.m. Midday is typically one of the busiest times for this attraction. The lowest wait times are usually an hour or two before closing. The animals also tend to be active at the end of the day as they are accustomed to heading to their backstage barns at the end of the day and are encouraged to do so through positive reinforcement.

THREE Pairs of Disney’s Newest Ears Have Landed in Disneyland!

We have seen SO many new Minnie Ears at Disney World recently that there seems to be at least one new pair coming out almost every week!

THREE Pairs of Disney’s Newest Ears Have Landed in Disneyland!

World of Disney at Disneyland Ears

But now some of those ears have made their way to Disneyland, too!

We recently wandered into World of Disney at Downtown Disney and discovered three pairs of these new Disney ears there, including these GLITZY Silver and Gold Minnie Ears for $29.99 that just SPARKLE. These ears are made of metallic sequins that catch the light and lend glamor to ANY situation.

Silver and Gold Minnie Ear Headband

We recently noticed that this Blue Polka Dot Minnie Ear Headband is a sort of revamped design from a previous ear headband we’ve seen. They feature sparkly black ears, a sparkly blue and white polka dot bow with a red band, and a beautiful satin daisy sticking out the top! These ears are also $29.99.

When we first spotted the Black and White Minnie Ear Headband at Disney World, we immediately got old Hollywood Glamour vibes. This headband, which is now at Downtown Disney, is $29.99 and has velvet ears with a satin black and white polka dot bow.

More Restaurants Are Offering Mobile Ordering in Disneyland!

Although Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure are still closed, the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort, with all of its fantastic stores and restaurants, is open!

More Restaurants Are Offering Mobile Ordering in Disneyland!

Downtown Disney!

We’ve enjoyed several speciality shopping events there and even gotten the chance to check out the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge merchandise.

All that shopping can make you hungry. Thankfully, there are several spots around Downtown Disney that now allow you to grab a quick meal or delicious snack by placing a mobile order through that restaurant’s app or website. Earlier today, we spotted a sign indicating that you can now place a mobile order for Jamba, Salt & Straw, Sprinkles, and Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen Express through each restaurant’s own website or app.

More Restaurants Are Offering Mobile Ordering in Disneyland!

More Mobile Order Locations

Each of the QR codes on the sign take you to the appropriate website you’ll need to visit to place your order. Although this is different than the Mobile Order option that is available through the Disneyland app, it was great to see more spots offering another way for guests to order their snacks. We’ll keep an eye out to see if more restaurants begin offering a mobile order option and we’ll let you know what we find!

Mobile Order will be expanded in Disneyland once the parks reopen — Click here to read all about it!
