Sure won't help the staffing shortage though.

Staffing shortages have been prevalent in all industries in all areas way before any talk of vaccine mandates, but especially in the service industries, and especially more so in hospitality industries.

Can mandates exacerbate that? Sure, but in most businesses, the loss of employees who refuse to be vaccinated when their job is on the line usually turns out to be only 1-5% (usually closer to 1%). Protests by Disney employees have drawn only a few dozen employees. Compare that to the totality of their workforce.

So, Disney's only going to be back at 85% capacity rather than 90% capacity for a while. The park reservation system makes sure they're not overwhelmed with guests, and keeping certain stores, restaurants, and entertainment venues closed for a while will continue to take place.

Many business are experiencing slow downs and temporary shut-downs due to lack of employees and employees out sick with COVID.

Don't forget that for WDW, the international pool of workers is still mostly not available yet and their college program has only restarted this past Fall.

Expecting Disney parks to be firing at 100% of pre-pandemic is an unrealistic expectation, even if there were no vaccine mandates. Tyson Foods found they became *more productive* once they mandate vaccines for their employees because it significantly reduced employee sick days.

I agree…and Disney is compensating by charging 125-150% of pre-pandemic pricing 👍🏻

I don't think it will hurt. Orange County is over 70% vaccinated, so why not appeal to the majority now? Tout the vaccine mandates as a safety measure and a sign that you take employee health seriously.
hey! You know we have a strict policy against common sense round here!😡

Florida law prevents Disney from implementating vaccine mandate in the state.
Yeah…that looks like a genius policy more everyday

but this would be Anaheim - of course.
