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.

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.”

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:

“UNITE HERE Local 11 just learned that Disney will lay off approximately 950 of our nearly 3,000 members, effective November 1. The Union will engage in bargaining with the company over issues including job security and healthcare coverage.”

According to AllEars.net, Workers United Local 50, a separate union that represents other Disney employees, issued a statement via their Facebook account indicating that the notice of layoff to the Local 50 members is set to occur on November 1st and that actual termination dates will be set in the notice. Local 50 also noted that, at this time, “over 2500 Local 50 members are expected to be laid off.”

Disney California Adventure

Workers United Local 50’s statement, which represents food and beverage workers at Disneyland, indicated that there is still a lot of information they don’t know, and that they are “scheduled to meet with Disney in the coming days to get more information and bargain over the effects.” The statement also noted that who is subject to the layoffs is “still to be determined,” and that the contract and bargaining will determine this. They also noted that “Non-union, salaried, and executive cast are starting to receive notice [of layoff] now.”

Entertainment/Performers

According to WESH 2 NEWS, the Actors’ Equity Association, which represents stage directors and actors in the parks, says they’re still in talks with Disney.

In terms of other performers, Yehaa Bob Jackson has already announced that he has been laid off. Additionally, we have heard that performers at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort may also face layoffs.

The Grand Floridian Society Orchestra has similarly been laid off and has already shared the details regarding its final performance.

Resources for Cast Members

According to the letter sent by Josh D’Amaro to Cast Members, those affected by these layoffs will still have access to some self-serve resources and tools 90 days post-separation. Additionally, there will also be some HR resources available to all employees post-separation “via a dedicated employee resource center.” Disney’s HR team will be able to assist Cast Members through that resource center in their transition.

Outplacement services will also be available for some employees. So far, only the information applicable to executive, salaried, and hourly non-union employees has been released. According to the email from Disney we reviewed, the Walt Disney Company should be “providing the services of Randstad RiseSmart for 90 days post-separation.” Under this program, executive, salaried, and hourly non-union employees eligible for the Disney Severance Pay Plan will also have access to professional career transition coaches, branding experts, and other resources and tools, including:

  • Resume Support: A professionally-written resume and LinkedIn profile critique
  • Career Coaching: Career coaching on interview techniques and salary negotiations
  • Job Leads: Latest job-matching platform and professionally-sourced job leads
  • Talent Directory: Public-facing website that highlights Disney’s exceptional people for recruiters and prospective employers

Some Cast Members have noted that those who are concerned or at risk of being laid off should also get their medications refilled, and use their medical/dental/vision benefits, getting in any annual appointments or wellness checks as soon as possible. Cast Members may also want to print out any comp tickets they currently have in the system. Employees may also want to consider printing out their tax information and forms for the last few years, paycheck stubs, and resumes.

From tote bags to Funko Pop! figures, we’ve seen lots of great merchandise released lately celebrating Disneyland’s 65th anniversary.

Limited Edition Disneyland 65th Anniversary Pins Are Now Available in Downtown Disney!

@Disney | Funko

Just a few weeks ago, Disneyland even held an exclusive shopping event for those looking to purchase some limited edition 65th Anniversary Pins. But, if you couldn’t get reservations for that event, don’t worry.

As we made our way around Downtown Disney today, we stopped by Disney’s Pin Traders and saw that TONS of the limited edition 65th Anniversary pins, which were originally only available through the exclusive shopping event, are now available for purchase.

We found the 65th Anniversary King Arthur Carrousel Pin…

We love bringing home Disney mugs as souvenirs — they’re a super useful way to add a dose of Disney to our daily lives!

We Spotted A TON of New Mugs in Downtown Disney Just in Time for PSL Season!

We’re constantly on the lookout for new mugs to add to our collection. So we were so excited to find loads of new mugs at World of Disney in Downtown Disney!

We recently saw the Cheshire Cat Sketch Mug at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and now it’s available in Disneyland, too! The mug is $14.99 and has a series of Cheshire Cat sketches, complete with his devilish grin.

These NEW Disney Thanksgiving Plates Are Perfect For Your Holiday Table!

With October only a day away, we’re about to enter peak SPOOKY season. But that’s also got us thinking about the next big holiday that’s just around the corner. Thanksgiving!

These NEW Disney Thanksgiving Plates Are Perfect For Your Holiday Table!

Thanksgiving Cupcake

In preparation for one of America’s ultimate foodie days, we found some fun pieces of kitchenware to bring more Disney to your Thanksgiving table this year.

Each of these colorful Mickey Thanksgiving plates features different holiday-inspired artwork and phrases!

These plates can be found online at Pottery Barn Kids for $9 apiece. And since they’re kid-friendly (BONUS!) you won’t need to worry about something breaking when the family comes over for Turkey Day! Next up is this bright orange Mickey Mouse Thanksgiving charger.

Also available online from Pottery Barn Kids, we think it may be hard to cover up this Mickey with our plates when we’re setting the table!! This charger is also priced at $9 apiece and (thankfully!) is kid-friendly too!

Last but not least are these Mickey and Minnie Thanksgiving bowls.

These NEW Disney Thanksgiving Plates Are Perfect For Your Holiday Table!

Priced at $8 apiece, they feature the same fun artwork from the Thanksgiving plates collection. This means all of these can be used together to create a truly festive (and pixie-dusted!) fall table.

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!

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!

Pumpkin Spice Your Life With This Churro From Downtown Disney

Pumpkin Spice Churro at Downtown Disney

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

Pumpkin Spice Your Life With This Churro From Downtown Disney

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!

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.

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

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.

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!

News: Disney World’s Cultural Representative Programs Have Been Canceled Indefinitely

EPCOT is gearing up for its grand reopening celebration tomorrow — which will also be the official start date of the Taste of EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival.

News: Disney World’s Cultural Representative Programs Have Been Canceled Indefinitely

Food and Wine Festival

And while we’ve been exploring the park during a special Cast Member preview this week, EPCOT’s World Showcase has felt a little different. Each pavilion is normally staffed by cultural representatives from each of the represented countries, but for now, it could be a long time before all of the cultural ambassadors can return to Disney World.

Back when the parks first extended their temporary closure dates, Disney World canceled all of its future college and cultural programs for candidates who were “due to arrive through early June.” Recently we learned college programs would not likely resume anytime soon. And now it appears some of Disney World’s cultural ambassadors are also receiving notification that their programs are being canceled through the end of the year.

News: Disney World’s Cultural Representative Programs Have Been Canceled Indefinitely

EPCOT

We were contacted by several cultural representatives who told us they’d received word from Disney that their programs have been canceled. Even candidates who’d received offers had their offers withdrawn.

Since Disney World’s cultural ambassadors comprise a large portion of the workforce at EPCOT’s World Showcase, returning Cast Members will most-likely be filling in for them until they’re able to return. We’ll be checking in tomorrow on the pavilions to show you what EPCOT is like when it reopens so stay tuned for more updates.

Is international travel banned right now? Here’s the latest info for Disney fans abroad!

Will you be heading to EPCOT tomorrow for the reopening? Let us know in the comments below!

NEWS: Disney World Annual Passholders Should Receive Their 30-Day Pass Extension Soon

Disney World has reopened, but there are still some changes to be made to some of the new systems.

NEWS: Disney World Annual Passholders Should Receive Their 30-Day Pass Extension Soon

Walt Disney World Annual Passholder

Annual Passholders have been on a bit of a rollercoaster this year when it comes to getting their money’s worth. Many folks have had their passes extended for the length of the closure — but that’s not the end of things. With the introduction of the Disney Park Pass reservation system to limit capacity, Passholders aren’t necessarily guaranteed entry into the parks.

To help mitigate Passholder concerns, Disney recently announced an added 30-day extension on top of the closure extension to make up for the capacity limits. Now, we know that those extensions are coming soon — and Passholders have another option.

In an email to Passholders today, Disney spoke about that way that “Park reservations will change the way that many of our Passholders use their pass.” The resultant 30-day extension to make up for this will be automatically processed and visible in eligible Passholders’ My Disney Experience Accounts over the coming weeks. So, keep an eye on your expiration date!

NEWS: Disney World Annual Passholders Should Receive Their 30-Day Pass Extension Soon

2020 Annual Passholder Magnet

If you would rather NOT take the extension, you are welcome to cancel your pass and instead receive an applicable refund instead of the additional month. To do so, or if you have any other concerns, call V.I.PASSHOLDER Support at (407) 939-7277. Keep in mind, lines may be busy so be patient and keep trying as needed.

Stay tuned to DFB for the latest updates on the park reopenings and Annual Passholder options. If you have any specific questions, reach out in the comments and we will do our best to get you answers.

Disneyland Annual Passholders to Receive an Automatic Extension on Passes After the Parks Reopen

Disneyland Resort has been closed since March with no established reopening date.

Disneyland Annual Passholders to Receive an Automatic Extension on Passes After the Parks Reopen

Disneyland Annual Passholder Magnet

Annual Passholders were granted an initial extension when the park first closed. Passholders who paid in full automatically had their expiration date extended for the number of days the parks will be closed or have the option to receive a partial refund. Monthly payments were paused for Passholders who were on the monthly payment program. Disneyland has now issued another statement regarding pass extensions.

A statement was sent to Walt Disney World and Disneyland Annual Passholders. Disney World Passholders will receive a 30-day extension to their pass. As for Disneyland Passholders, the extension “will be applied to your pass 6–8 weeks after Disneyland Resort Theme Parks reopen.”

The statement also noted that Disneyland will have park reservation rules and limited availability for its theme parks. Information about the new Disneyland reservation system will be revealed at a later date.

NEWS: Disney World to Increase Park Pass Reservation Availability For Annual Passholders SOON!

Two of Disney World’s theme parks have already reopened to the general public while the remaining two are set to open tomorrow.

NEWS: Disney World to Increase Park Pass Reservation Availability For Annual Passholders SOON!

EPCOT

All guests who visit must have valid theme park admission and a reservation to visit Disney World during its reopening phase. And availability for Annual Passholders has been pretty slim. Now, Disney has shared that they will be increasing availability for Annual Passholders. 

When the new Disney Park Pass reservation system first launched, Annual Passholder spots went quickly. As you can see from this current screenshot of Disney World’s theme park availability calendar, all of the Disney Park Pass reservations for Annual Passholders have already been taken for the month of July.
