I don’t even know what point you are trying to make. That all wdw employees should have expected to be laid off despite their 20-30+ years with the company?
That people in the roles mentioned are used to fluidity in the roles and job outlook.
And anyone who looks at your number of years as some impervious job shield is bound to get blindsided some day (unless you are in a union with seniority ranking). You should always look at your position as based on what value you are able to deliver now and to where the company is headed. Else you’ll be like the film developer at Kodak and jobless regardless of how long and how great you did your old job.
