A few years ago ( 3 to 5) WDW Disney management laid off around 500 employees. Most were lower level cast members ie janitorial staff and a few middle management cast members were included in this lay off. Since then I have seen a noticeable decline in park cleanliness, and those positions,and to my knowlege, these positions haven't been filled despite the growing economy and rising park attendance. My wife and I have been going to WDW twice a year for the last 26 years. We keep hoping that Disney management will realize that when Walt Disney opened these parks he knew the importance of maintaining cleanliness and his thoughts on this subject would transfer to todays management personel. It remains to be seen and we can only hope that someone in upper management will grasp Walts ideas and we will once again return to Walts standards and realize the importance of park cleanliness which keeps Disney the leader in the theme park industry.
