Disney Pauses Vaccine Mandate Following DeSantis Legislation, More Than 90% of Cast Vaccinated


    According to a report from Fox 35 Orlando, Disney World has sent out a memo to Cast Members that says that the company is pausing its vaccine mandate following new legislation from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis that attempts to block businesses from implementing vaccination mandates.

    The memo says, in part, that “the pause will remain in effect as it assesses the new state laws protecting workers from vaccine mandates.” A Disney spokesperson said:

    We believe that our approach to mandatory vaccines has been the right one as we’ve continued to focus on the safety and well-being of our Cast Members and Guests, and at this point, more than 90 percent of active Florida-based Cast Members have already verified that they are fully vaccinated. We will address legal developments as appropriate.
