The atmosphere of WDW is not going to be the same if so many of the entertainers are let go.
Horrible horrible horrible.
Monsters Inc show, cast and crew also laid off.
Why work so long to come to an agreement for them to return only to lay everyone off in the end?
Ughhhhh these layoffs are terrible.
Citizens of Main Street at MK are also laid off.
I wonder what they are thinking? Is this going to go on longer than expected? Will they be back though? I hope so cuz all the street performers were the best!
I’m so happy I did one of my bucket list items last October and interacted with a Citizen of Main Street since they’ve been let go, as well.
The Citizens of Hollywood were equally amazing.
Disney has become a ride park with expensive merch. Bravo, Disney. Bravo.
Found this list - with others…
Tonight is a sad night to be a fan of entertainment at Disney Parks, as Disney has begun notifying Equity Actors and Actresses that they are being laid off.
- Citizens of Hollywood
- Citizens of Main Street
- Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor
- Festival of the Lion King
- Finding Nemo — The Musical
- Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Review Dinner Show
- Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage
I have real concern that many of these will never return.
Wouldn’t that mean Disney is just an amusement park? After all, Six Flags has Loony Tunes characters to meet.
