Disney World Sends Layoff Notices to Cast Members Today

    According to a Walt Disney World union (and multiple social media posts), Disney World has sent out layoff notices to thousands of Cast Members today, making official many of the 15,000+ announced layoffs in the Orlando theme parks.

    The layoffs are part of a larger contingent of 28,000 Cast Members who will lose their jobs as a result of the economic downturn following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic shutdowns. Here’s a look at the letter, which was sent with a generic “Dear Cast Member” salutation.

    It is worth noting that Disney calls the layoffs “permanent” in the generic letter, but that’s just because they didn’t bother to personalize the notice and sent it to both union and non-union Cast Members. Unionized Cast Members will not experience “permanent” layoffs.

    1. Time to leave CAL. The fire alone was driving me out, but now there is no reason to stay and endure the high cost of living.

      This pandemic is biting everyone, but CA’s response is over the top ridiculous. They are the exact antithesis to FL’s response which would see everyone burn in that place down below.

      Also, Cobra is a joke. We can get decent medical coverage, but the expense of it eats up all the unemployment benefits, leaving us starving and homeless with only the funds in our HSAs to help pay for the medical visits we’re entitled to.
