This feels like to me it’s in response to the governor of CA not allowing Disneyland to open. It seems to me it will mostly effect Disneyland since there is no plan to reopen Disneyland.
The majority of the layoffs will be at WDW.
Why? There hasn’t been a Covid spike tied to any open theme parks in America so far. That should have been the green light for CA, seeing how it can certainly be open safely with minimal Covid spread.
You really think there has been adequate contact tracing to prove that?
Really? I have a hard time imagine a non-Covid-19 world where Disney announces it’s laying off 1/4 of its domestic workforce.
And you would probably be right, but the question was whether there would be layoffs if Disneyland were open and the answer is yes. These layoffs are being made with the understanding that in the longer term, their volume (attendance) will not support having additional Cast Members with no work to do.
