Breakdown of Non-Union Walt Disney World Cast Member Layoffs


Earlier today we reported that there will be about 6,700 non-union Cast Members laid off at Walt Disney World.

WDWMagic has provided a better breakdown of how many Cast Members in what divisions will be impacted:

6246 are listed at Team Disney’s address, which are likely operational Cast Members deployed throughout property. 65 are located in Celebration, which serves as office space for much of Walt Disney World’s administration, marketing and finance departments. 49 are located at Orlando International Airport, which may include retail and Magical Express. 22 are located at Walt Disney World’s creative costuming facility, and finally 8 are listed at a building close to Central Reservations office space.

These layoffs go into effect on December 4 2020, and are part of the non-union employee layoffs that were announced this morning as a total of 6700.

With 49 being let go at the airport I have to wonder if we will see the Magical Express get cut or scaled back.  I hope we don’t lose the buses and only have the super expensive Minnie vans as an option.

This is just the non-union Cast Members, we still don’t have clear numbers yet on all the union Cast Members that will be let go.

We are thinking of all of you.

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies.
