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