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.

Tron 3 in development starting Jared Leto

Tron 3 in development starting Jared Leto Tron 3

Breaking news! The Disney company has announced that ‘Tron 3’ is officially in development!

Jared Leto is reportedly being considered to star in the next exciting chapter of the Tron movie franchise. Disney is also searching for a movie director for the sequel. Although not confirmed, it’s hoped that Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski will return.

Tron 3 in development starting Jared Leto

Disney music executive Mitchell Leib discussed the future of the Tron franchise in a recent podcast. He first talked about working with Daft Punk on the music for Tron: Legacy, but then switched into a conversation about the development of a tentative “Tron 3” sequel. He confirmed that Disney already has a script in hand, too. With the success of Disney+, “Tron 3” may come out as a direct-to-streaming movie.

Tron 3 in development starting Jared Leto

“Now with Disney+, I think there’s opportunities to be creating content that we otherwise wouldn’t have been able to create, you know because we’re in the movie business,” Leib explained. “We’re in the big movie business, and unless it’s a big movie idea we don’t make small movies. We’re only after basically billion dollar box office hits. On the one hand, that’s great. On the other hand, that’s a very narrow sleeve to operate in, and Disney+ I think is going to afford us the opportunity to expand and get much more diversified in the kind of content we can create. And Daft Punk has a bit of a television and movie development company, and all kinds of things they’re into, businesses they’re into. So I had lunch with Paul Hahn to further a bit of a starting conversation that we’re looking at making a sequel to Tron now, we’re looking at Tron 3. And we’ve got a great script, I mean a really phenomenal script that we’re very excited about. Whereas the timing wasn’t right to have done it years ago, I think we feel like the timing is right now, and I feel like we’ve learned a lot of lessons from that last movie.”

We’ll provide updates when more information becomes available.

Inspired Schoolgirl Asks for Disney Princesses with Glasses

Inspired Schoolgirl Asks for Disney Princesses with Glasses

Eleven-year-old Lowri Moore, from Nottingham, England, wrote a letter to Bob Iger last year requesting the creation of Disney princesses that wear glasses. According to BBC News, Lowri, who wears glasses, said that she wanted to see more characters “wearing glasses like me.”

Lowri’s letter to Bob Iger read: “I’ve grown up watching Disney princesses and I’ve always admired them and thought they were beautiful. Unfortunately, none of the princesses wear glasses and that made me feel as though I’m not beautiful enough.”

Lowri described that the Disney characters featured with glasses were typically portrayed as “geeky or nerdy instead of beautiful.” She felt so strongly about the need for a glasses-wearing Disney princess that she came up with her own!

A local illustrator, Natalie Owen, heard about Lowri’s letter and character idea, and was a Disney fan herself- so she decided to help out! According to BBC News, Owen decided to create the story, ‘Princess Rose and the Golden Glasses,’ featuring a beautiful princess in an orange gown and, you guessed it…glasses!

Lowri was thrilled about the glasses-wearing princess- “The illustrations are amazing and I’m so excited this has happened. Rose has blue-ish glasses, brown long hair, kind of like me. Even if it’s not Disney it’s still a role model for young people. I’m happy I got to create one.”

Lowri’s mother was also touched by the new book- “[The character] thinks she’s not beautiful because she’s wearing glasses. A bit like someone else I know. And she goes on a bit of an adventure where she discovers she actually is beautiful. To come from a nine-year-old’s mind it’s so clever. I’m super proud.”

Although there is no response from Disney to Lowri’s letter, it would be great to see a glasses-wearing Disney princess in the future!

Disney World wins Lawsuit over Mom’s Fight for Autistic Son to Ride Attractions Without Wait

Disney World wins Lawsuit over Mom’s Fight for Autistic Son to Ride Attractions Without Wait disney world

Disney has won a lawsuit that an Orlando disability advocate filed against them on behalf of her adult autistic son to get him immediate access to the FastPass lines at the Disney World theme parks.

Donna Lorman, president of the Autism Society of Greater Orlando, sued Disney in 2014 after Disney World changed its policy regarding guests with disabilities.

Before, Disney’s Guest Assistance Card allowed guests with disabilities and their families to enter the FastPass line an unlimited number of times. That card became heavily abused by guests.

In 2013 Disney created a new system, the Disability Access Service Card, or DAS, that lets people with disabilities get return times for rides, similar to a FastPass, so they don’t have to wait in a line.

Lorman wanted 10 passes to the Magic Kingdom for her son so he could ride his favorite attractions by going directly into the FastPass line. She said the extra waiting was hard for her son who didn’t understand the concept of time.

She testified that her son, who was 22 when she filed the lawsuit, has moderate to severe autism that made communication difficult and following a routine essential. She said her son needed to visit rides in a particular order at Disney.

Disney argued it isn’t required to provide unlimited, front-of-line passes for every ride under the Americans with Disabilities Act. If they did, the general public in the stand-by lines would wait longer.

Disney’s defense team also said Lorman should have planned her visit better to adjust to the new rules.

The two sides went to trial in February and a decision was reached on June 22. U.S. District Judge Anne Conway sided with Disney, ruling it was “unreasonable” for Disney to give such access to Lorman’s son. If Disney allowed him special access, others would demand it too.

“Requiring the modification, based on the history of the former system, would lead to fraud and overuse, lengthen the wait times significantly for non-disabled guests, and fundamentally alter Disney’s business model,” Conway wrote.

Conway also said Disney could “recover its cost of action.” It’s unclear how much Disney’s legal bills are, but the fight lasted over 5 years.

“To say that I am disappointed would be an understatement. I really truly believe in what I was fighting for,” Lorman wrote about the loss.

New Picnic Punch now available at Starbucks in Disney Springs

New Picnic Punch now available at Starbucks in Disney Springs Starbucks Picnic Punch

If there’s one thing Starbucks knows how to do, it’s creating beautiful and tasty new drinks that everybody has to try (and Instagram!). Well, they’ve done it again! On our last trip to Disney Springs, we were lucky enough to try the colorful new Picnic Punch.

New Picnic Punch now available at Starbucks in Disney Springs

Picnic Punch starts off as a pineapple matcha drink and is topped with strawberry sweet cream cold foam. Wow, it’s pretty! It reminded us of a reversal of last year’s Millenial Falcon drink (a pink drink topped with matcha foam) and had that same level of refreshment. The initial flavor hit is strong with strawberry, which is sweet and fruity, then as the drink mixes, the tea flavor comes up more. The best part is definitely the cold foam where the taste of strawberry purée is clearest. But the whole beverage is refreshing and on the delicate side of Starbucks flavors.

New Picnic Punch now available at Starbucks in Disney Springs

It costs $7.40 before tax, so hopefully, you’ve been saving up some of those rewards from your morning fix. Whether you like coffee or not, this one is a great choice because it’s cool and light. However, if you really hate matcha or tea, steer clear. The matcha flavor gets strong towards the end.

The new Picnic Punch at @starbucks is super refreshing and a great beverage to try on your next trip to Disney Springs! It’s a pineapple matcha with strawberry purée cold foam. #disneysprings #waltdisneyworld #starbucks #disneyfood

Picnic Punch is now being mixed up at Starbucks in Disney Springs. Try it while the summer flavors last!

Review! We Tried the New Fried Fish Sandwich at Wine Bar George in Disney World!

From iced beverages to chicken wings, we’ve been tasting our way around new menu items at Disney Springs!

Review! We Tried the New Fried Fish Sandwich at Wine Bar George in Disney World!

Wine Bar George

And when we saw a new addition to the menu at Wine Bar George, we had to swing by to give it a try!

So, what’s the new addition?? Wine Bar George is now offering a Fried Fish Sandwich! Served on a brioche bun, this sandwich includes pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, and gribiche sauce. It also comes with a side of fries.

Review! We Tried the New Fried Fish Sandwich at Wine Bar George in Disney World!

We thought the fish itself was AMAZING! The breading is light and buttery and the fish is tender and flaky. Sliced, unripe tomatoes line the bottom of the sandwich while fresh grape tomatoes lie on top.

The gribiche sauce was super tangy, and we would say it’s an acquired taste — it definitely added a lot of flavor to the sandwich! And the pickles paired well with the sauce! We did notice that the sandwich was really messy to eat.

Eating it can get a little messy…

The fries were also delicious! Generously salted and spiced, they were a filling addition to the meal. You can snag this sandwich for $16 at Wine Bar George in Disney Springs.

You’ll be singing sea chanties while you mix up these mouth-watering Mermaid Tail Cookies! No need to make your own crustacean *ahem* creation, we’ve got the recipe for you right here!

Follow along with the recipe from Disney Family below and make a splash with these yummy treats! While you’re at it, don’t forget to try this Chocolate Soufflé recipe or these Guava Glazed Ribs recipe from Disney Cruise Line too! We think these recipes are perfect for going under the sea.

Mermaid Hair, Don’t Care! Disney Cruise Line’s Mermaid Tail Cookie Recipe is Perfect for All Sea Dwellers!

© Disney

Ingredients

  • Batch of chilled sugar cookie dough (homemade or store-bought)
  • Flour
  • Rolling pin
  • Wax paper
  • Baking sheet
  • Cooling rack
  • Kitchen knife
  • White cookie icing
  • Candy necklaces or other small candies
  • Colored sugar (optional)
  • Food decorator pens (optional)

Helpful Tip

If the store-bought brand of dough you use is too soft to hold the cookie shapes during baking, you can knead in a little extra flour to stiffen it before rolling it out.

Directions

  1.  Print the template from the Disney Family website and cut it out. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness, then use the template and a knife to cut out mermaid tail cookies. Bake the cookies according to the recipe directions and let them cool.
  2.  Working with one cookie at a time, spread cookie icing on the tail fin. Then spread more icing on a 2-inch section of the tail just above the fin and gently press candies into it, arranging them close together to resemble scales. Continue frosting and decorating the rest of the tail a section at a time until you reach the top. Or, you can simply sprinkle colored sugar on the icing in place of the candy.
  3.  Set the cookies aside until the icing hardens. Then use food decorator pens to embellish the tail fins with colorful lines, if you like.

DVC Moonlight Magic events cancelled for 2020

DVC Moonlight Magic events cancelled for 2020 Moonlight Magic

The Walt Disney company released an update to let DVC members know that the rest of this year’s Moonlight Magic events will be canceled. Disney Vacation Members were notified months ago that the previous Moonlight Magic event nights would be delayed until this summer. The rescheduled dates were listed for the months of June through August, but now Disney confirms how we won’t see the DVC events return at all for 2020.

We have attended some of these Moonlight Magic events in the past and they were quite a blast! You can read the following description to see what was offered during these DVC events:

Enjoy an evening of enchantment, entertainment and more as a theme park becomes your playground.

During a Moonlight Magic event, Members can visit a select theme park for an after-hours celebration. While attendees may get a jump start on the fun by mixing in with the regular crowd earlier in the evening, the real magic happens after the park has closed to the public.

It’s then that privileged partiers can:

  • Enjoy shorter-than-usual wait times on popular attractions
  • Meet some Disney Characters
  • Savor complimentary refreshments
  • Let loose at high-energy dance parties

Hopefully we will return to see these event nights in 2021!

News: Broadway Set to Remain Closed Until January 2021

While Disney World is prepping for its July 11th reopening and has just sold-out its Special Annual Passholder Preview Event, it could be a while before we see one of our favorite Disney musicals on Broadway again.

News: Broadway Set to Remain Closed Until January 2021

Instead of resuming productions in September (as they’d originally projected) it seems more likely that Broadway’s stages could remain empty until 2021.

According to a recent New York Times article, performances are now unlikely to resume for the remainder of 2020. The famous theatre district comprised of 41 theaters has remained closed since mid-March and now the Broadway League has stated theater owners and producers will refund or exchange tickets previously purchased for shows through January 3rd, 2021.

News: Broadway Set to Remain Closed Until January 2021

“Returning productions are currently projected to resume performances over a series of rolling dates in early 2021,” the League released in a statement. Thus far, the Disney musical Frozen, which had opened in 2018 has already announced it’s played its last show and will not be returning.

News: Broadway Set to Remain Closed Until January 2021

©Disney Frozen Will Not Be Returning

With the guidance of local health and government officials, Broadway productions are working on reopening procedures that will involve, “screening and testing, cleaning and sanitizing, wayfinding inside theaters, backstage protocols and much more.”

“I’m cautiously optimistic, with the latest information that we’re getting from scientists and medical professionals, that we’re getting close to some protocols that would work in New York and on the road,” Charlotte St. Martin, the League’s president, stated in an interview. “As long as they hold up, I do think that after the first of the year, a rolling rollout of shows reopening is possible.”

NEWS! Disney English Learning Centers Will Be Closing in China!

Shanghai Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland have already been welcoming guests back into the parks in China.

NEWS! Disney English Learning Centers Will Be Closing in China!

Shanghai Disneyland

However, since this unprecedented situation constantly changes, Disney has had to make a few tough decisions outside of the parks in China.

Shine News has reported that Disney English will no longer be available in China after operating for 12 years. Disney English opened its learning centers with English-immersion classes that included storytelling, singing, and interactive games as a way to educate people in the country.

The first Disney English location was debuted in Shanghai in October 2008, before making its way across the country with 26 learning centers (10 of which are based in Shanghai). Over 100,000 children ages 2 through 12 have been able to expand upon their language skills through Disney’s programs.

However, classes were closed in-person in January due to health concerns, and online classes were offered starting March 19th. The Walt Disney Company Executive Vice President Mahesh Samat has stated that “Over the past few years, we have noticed a shift in consumer preferences toward online learning experiences and this trend has been accelerated by the global pandemic as families are hesitant to resume in-person supplemental learning classes.”

He went on to comment that “After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to not reopen the centers. We are ensuring that each family of a Disney English learner is refunded accordingly, and we are taking care of each and every one of our affected cast members.”

Disney has notified parents that they are able to apply for refunds through July 21st. In order to visit the learning centers in person, parents should make an appointment. Anyone coming inside the Disney English locations will be required to wear masks, show their health QR codes, and bring their ID cards, bank cards, and contracts to receive a refund.

Disney Postpones Theatrical Release of ‘Mulan’ for a Second Time Over Coronavirus Concerns

Disney Postpones Theatrical Release of ‘Mulan’ for a Second Time Over Coronavirus Concerns

Disney Postpones Theatrical Release of ‘Mulan‘ for a Second Time Over Coronavirus Concerns. After already being postponed 4 months from its original release date of March 27th to July 24th, Disney is officially moving the release date for the film a second time.

“Making this films has been one of the most satisfying and exhilarating experiences of my entire career, and I’ve been so fortunate to be on this journey with some of the best cast and crew in the business,” director Niki Caro shared via Instagram following the initial release date change from March to July. “We are so excited to share this film with the world, but given the current ever-shifting circumstances we all are experiencing, unfortunately, we have to postpone the worldwide release of Mulan for now. Our hearts are with everyone the world over who is affected by this virus, and we hope that Mulan’s fighting spirit will continues to inspire those who are working so hard to keep us all safe,” Caro added.

The latest Disney live-action remake will now premiere in theaters on August 21st, instead of July 24th as previously planned. The primary reason, according to the Wall Street Journal, is the lack of attendance as theaters are beginning to re-open. Any film company would be hesitant to release a new film when audiences are at minimal capacity in theaters, so this doesn’t really come as a shock to those in the industry, but on the other side of the coin, a highly anticipated film could be just what audiences need to draw them back in to the theaters.

Most theaters, such as AMC Theatres, Cinemark, and Regal Cinemas, that have begun to re-open their doors have put new safety and cleanliness procedures in place to help moviegoers feel more at ease returning to public places,  but that hasn’t stirred much confidence among potential audience members as confirmed COVID-19 cases begin to spike in many states that were the first to re-open. Most theaters that have resumed operation are not even featuring relatively new titles yet, and have begun showing iconic films such as Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, E.T., the original Star Wars trilogy, Lord of the Rings, and Jaws to help draw in crowds.

Universal Announces Twister Reboot Potentially Lead by Director from ‘Top Gun: Maverick’

Universal Announces Twister Reboot Potentially Lead by Director from ‘Top Gun: Maverick’. According to an exclusive report from Variety, Universal Pictures is looking to reboot the 1996 hit film, Twister. Sources close to Variety shared that Universal’s top choice to direct the film is Joseph Kosinski (Top Gun: Maverick, Tron: Legacy). Frank Marshall is currently producing the project and working to get a writing team going for the film.

The original film starred Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt and followed the events that take place in Oklahoma during one of the most powerful storms in decades. “University professor Dr. Jo Harding (Helen Hunt) and an underfunded team of students prepare the prototype for Dorothy, a ground-breaking tornado data-gathering device conceived by her estranged husband, Bill (Bill Paxton). When Harding tells Bill that Dorothy is ready for testing — and that their privately funded rival Dr. Jonas Miller (Cary Elwes) has stolen the idea and built his own — Bill rejoins the storm chasing team for one last mission.”

It is currently unknown when the film will premiere in theaters and no formal casting choices have been designated at the time fo writing. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for all things Entertainments!

The ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Reboot Still In Limbo Over Creative Differences

The ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Reboot Still In Limbo Over Creative Differences

The ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Reboot Still In Limbo Over Creative Differences. Disney fans who grew up watching Lizzie McGuire were ecstatic to hear the series would be getting a reboot on Disney+ in 2020. Most of the original cast was set to return including Adam Lamberg (David “Gordo” Gordon)Hallie Todd (Jo McGuire), Robert Carradine (Sam McGuire), and Jake Thomas (Matt McGuire), and several hints that other characters from the hit show would make cameo appearances through out the series.

Unfortunately for fans, production came to a screeching halt after original show runner Terri Minsky left the project claiming “creative differences” as the primary reason for leaving the show. Both Minsky and the shows lead, Hilary Duff, voiced concern over Disney+’s content rules and wanting to explore more adult themes and content within the series as Lizzie navigated her 30’s. I mean, she’s not in middle school anymore, so this does make sense. shrugs

Well, needless to say, Disney+ did not share the same sentiment, and thus forced production to shut down while a new storyline and direction is being hashed out for the series. In the meantime, Duff and Minsky have been very vocal about wanting the series to be moved to sister streaming service, Hulu.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Hulu’s head of original content, Craig Erwich, shared that there have not been any discussions about the series making the move to Hulu despite the actors plea. “I appreciate her fandom,” Erwich said with a grin—but he added, “We have not had any conversations with Hilary Duff around her show.”

“Lizzie is turning 30, and for me, you know she was everybody’s best friend, and she was there for such pivotal moments in their pre-teen life, and entering your 30s is an extremely big deal and I think it’s just the right time for her to step back in and to have her go along with you in your 30s,” Duff shared in a recent interview. “All of the fun times and all of the big monumental moments and all of the challenges you are faced with. I just thought that there was such opportunity there for her to be grown up and for her to be there for women again.”

“Fans have a sentimental attachment to Lizzie McGuire and high expectations for a new series,” a Disney spokesperson told TVLine. “After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the series.”

Production is currently at a standstill while Disney finds a new direction for the series, and it is very possible reshoots will be ordered. It is unknown when production will return and if any of the previously shot footage will be used in the series. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Disney+!

Disney World Cinderella Castle Update

Disney World Cinderella Castle Update

We previously reported on how Cinderella Castle is receiving a magical makeover this year. We saw Disney start work on the castle back in March, and it’s amazing how much the appearance has changed already. In recent days, we went to explore the monorail resorts and caught a glimpse of Cinderella Castle from Disney’s Contemporary Resort. The great news is it looks like the magical makeover is almost complete!

Disney World Cinderella Castle Update

The castle’s paintwork is the first sign of progress we’ve seen so far. The blue spires show the most noticeable paintwork so far. It went from a baby clue to a vibrant royal blue color. This bold color choice gives a vibrant appearance to the top of the castle. Also, the inner curtain, which is what we call the interior section of Cinderella Castle, is getting a rose gold paint treatment. It’s a subtle color choice, but it definitely adds a pop of color to a traditionally grey castle.

The last time we saw Cinderella Castle up close inside Magic Kingdom was in March. But now other Disney fans have observed signs that the magical makeover is still being worked on at Magic Kingdom. We can see that the crew has advanced in painting and that we’re getting closer to seeing the finished product!

What do you think of the new blue and pink paint on Cinderella Castle? It’ll be exciting to see the finished product once the magical makeover is complete.
