Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

I did and couldn't find one case of a CP contacting Disney about accommodations if they could not leave immediately, just an endless stream of people talking about how Disney is "kicking people out".
They can't at this time due to social media policy but I admire your optimism.

Anecdotal; Just noticed that Frozen II is available on Disney+. Coincidence with park closures? Don’t know. But it’s the only streaming service I’m subscribed to and have been surfing it with nothing else to do.
It was on schedule to be released in 3 months. They announced yesterday they’d be dropping it early to help ease families stuck at home.

But did they ask? They may not have said anything in the notice about it to put pressure on people to leave if they can.

Yes, many have asked and are not getting any answers. Many are voicing frustration at the moment, which is to be expected after all they just lost their internships.

They've got until March 18 to vacate the premises so hopefully they can make it safely home.

Who do you ask though? Their managers didnt know this was coming. Maybe disney will help people. But dumping kids out with a few days notice and saying good luck even if they are only a few hundred miles away is horrible.

...and CP kids posting their Venmo for strangers to send money to them.

As you say, they may help people, why choose to jump to the negative?

This was only announced a few hour ago right? Seems like an over reaction to me.

Yep.. and I just read through one who was asking money for rent.. but the comments to her are saying that disney waived the rent, and is paying them for their normal hours even though they won’t be working.

That’s more help than what most college kids are getting right now. I don’t see how Disney is the big-bad-guy here.

Disney is not. They advised the cast this was a difficult decision and gave them the date they need to vacate.
